Journal Squared is energiz- ing the area’s street life by adding 36,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, including the popular café, WHEALTH, as well as a new pedestrian plaza known as Magnolia Landing, which leads to the adjacent transit hub. Since its grand opening in the summer of 2017, Mag- nolia Landing has served as a venue for farmers markets, seasonal activities and com- munity events. With its easy access to trans- portation, Journal Square is quickly becoming one of Jersey City’s most in-demand neigh- borhoods. A covered pathway leads residents from the build- ing directly to the Journal Square Transportation Cen- ter, one of New Jersey’s major transportation hubs. The facil- ity has access to NJ Transit, and is also a major stop on the PATH rail system, with service to Lower and Midtown Manhattan, Hoboken, Newark and Jersey City. 

said Jeff Kanne , president of National Real Estate Advisors. Designed by Hol lwich Kushner and Handel Ar- chitects , Journal Squared will include three buildings, and bring a total of 1,840 rental residences to the area. KRE and National broke ground on Journal Squared’s Tower Two in Spring of 2018. Slated to top out in 2019, Tower Two, a 71-story building, will rise to 754 feet, making it the tall- est of the three towers. When finished, it will include 704 residences and a collection of modern amenities. Clad in aluminum panels and standing at 563 feet in height, Tower One was com- pleted in 2017, making it the neighborhood’s tallest building to date and the third tallest building in Jersey City. The 53-story building’s 538 apart- ments, ranging in size from studios to three bedrooms, were fully leased within 10 months of launching leasing efforts.
