Johnny, on one of his morning walks through Jersey City is really amazed at all the construction in the Powerhouse Arts District (PAD). Today the property at 150 Bay St. is being carved up to create first floor businesses, actually being carved and opened so that new business can hopefully break out in Jersey City. We'd love to see what's planned to go into 150 Bay St. (It'll most likely try to look like it's neighbor building across Provost at 140 Bay that has loft condos with first floor businesses). It looks like the property at 140 Bay St. got it right so here's hoping 150 Bay St. can emulate it's neighbor.
There is an awful lot of construction going on in the PAD, with the Powerhouse Arts Building itself undergoing renovations. We're all for this. We'd rather not see a garish 50 floor condo building spring up in PAD like the Trump Tower, but would love to see all those old warehouses refurbished.
