I always assumed such a building would be built along Washington Blvd in Newport or Hudson St in Exchange Place. Both with access to PATH.
i did take a look at the area on trulia and noticed the housing in the vicinity looked pretty crappy. so the location seemed to purely be a matter of convenience to the PATH.

The whole idea is to change that neighborhood, the way Exchange Place was changed.

At 82 floors, it's highly doubtful that it'll reach 1,000 feet, especially if it's mostly residential. The vast majority of condo/apartment highrises are concrete-framed, and have a typical floor-to-floor height of 9.5'-10'. Office floors would be more in the 12'-13' range. 1,000' divided by 82 floors gives an average of 12.2' per floor, so unless it's mostly office space, it'll likely be more in the 850-900' range. Still an impressive height for NJ.

I'm glad they're building these buildings near Journal Sq. and not closer to the waterfront so they don't block the views of the shorter buildings behind them.

If these get built, hopefully the JSQ area will be somewhat revitalized. The area has alot of potential with the nice looking brownstones and Victorian homes nearby and proximity to the city.

No way Kennedy Blvd and the surrounding streets wil be able to handle the huge traffic spike if these towers are built.
