The 53-story Journal Squared rental tower is expected to open this winter, according to the Wall Street Journal. As reported earlier, the $280 million building is the first of three towers, the latter of which will rise 70 and 60 stories. All three towers will be linked at ground level with landscaped plazas that lead into the JSQ PATH station.

The WSJ also mentions that the PATH station will get a much-needed redesign courtesy of HWKN, Handel Architects, and Melillo+Bauer Associates. Per the WSJ, it will include a covered walkway that cuts straight through the tower’s ground level.

Amenities at Journal Squared will include a double-height fitness center, outdoor pool, and a 53rd-floor lounge for residents (which will likely have some killer views). Studios are expected to start at $1,900/month. —WSJ
