On June 16, 2022, principals of Kushner hosted Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and other dignitaries to mark the true beginning of their 1,723-unit One Journal Square project. The two-million-square-foot (185,806-square-meter) development is situated adjacent to the neighborhood’s PATH station on a parcel that has sat vacant since 2009.

One Journal Square, to be built by AJD Construction, will rise 710 feet (216.4 meters) in the air at the highest point and consist of two 64-story structures (52-floor towers linked by a 12-story base). Designed by global architectural firm Woods Bagot, the design aims to express a slender verticality with a series of stepped volumes that transition the towers to the neighborhood’s scale.

The rental apartments in the complex will break down into 493 studios, 972 one-bedrooms, 222 two-bedrooms, and 36 three-bedroom spaces. The base of One Journal Square will include 883 parking spaces plus 40,000 square feet (3,716 square meters) of retail space, with Mayor Fulop announcing in a tweet that Target has agreed to a deal that will make them the anchor tenant at the property.
