10/6/06 Update:

Just wanted to clarify the mistake of the bank being a Wachovia. It’s going to be a Washington Mutual.

9/19/06 Update:

First, we said there was an Eckerd Pharmacy, Battaglia’s and a second NYSC going here.
Then, Battaglia’s backed out and is moving to 15th and Willow. NYSC still here.

Now, here’s the current lineup:
– CVS Pharmacy is apparently taking that spot instead of Eckerd
– NYSC still there. They’ll have two entrances. An elevator and stairs on 14th St., and a stairwell on Park.
– A Bank is going in this corner spot. I recall a reader indicating it was going to be a Wachovia bank. Correction, as you can see from the comments, that bank is actually going in the Sovereign.

Here’s an old image from many months ago:

Update 9/6/06: NYSC Promoting.
On the corner of 14th and Washington, the new uptown NYSC has a table set up seeking early sign-ups to the new gym facility opening in late November, early December. They’re looking for 500 names, and the first people that sign up prior to the grand opening will get reduced monthly rates. They were unsure of the actual number, but will most certainly be lower than the standard rates. Talk to Bill Russell when they open the location in October for “previews”.

Provide 4 names and numbers and get a free NYSC backpack, water bottle, hat and headphones. Check it out on your way home.

Update 8/14/06: It seems as if Battaglia’s has backed out of this location, and is moving to the old George’s Hardware store on Willow between 14th and 15th. There is still an RKF sign indicating available retail space at the 14th and Park location…

This project is moving along, so here is what is seemingly going into the old Hostess building 14th between Willow and Park:

– An Eckerd Pharmacy
A second Battaglia’s store
– A second NYSC gym on the top floor.

[quote comment=”3551″]I believe Rite Aid is in the process of buying Eckerd so they probably sold the location to CVS (or just walked away from it). [/quote]

JCPenney’s sold Eckerds — in the south they are all CVSs now, as Brooks owns all the northeast ones. I doubt we’ll get an Eckerds in town. Maybe it’s biased since family works for them, but I definitely prefer CVS, it’s always cleaner and more organized and the workers are more polite.

On a related note, Rite Aid has been using that vacant used-to-be laundromat for storage. There has been recent activity, however, of those storage items being moved to on-site dumpster-like storage ‘bins’ in their parking lot. Are they planning on making that other half of the building into something ‘useful’ (i.e., not condos)?

As a huge opponent of ugly-ass ‘luxury’ condos, (I don’t mind the nice ones, but why the hell are they all in Jersey City?) this poses a dilemma. 13th and Willow Rite-Aide, or Luxury Condos? This time, and this time only, I’ll have to vote for the Luxury Condos. If I heard that they were demolishing that Rite Aide and replacing it with a prison, I’d still support it. Rite Aide is that bad.

Trail, that huge empty lot you referred to is already approved for “luxury condos”. The movie theater is planned for a half empty lot a few blocks west of it, but with the Mayor’s track record of making things happen I wouldn’t plan on going to see any movies there before 2010.

As for the Rite-Aid building, I wouldn’t be suprised to see it shut down and demolished for luxury condos. The developer would probably make an argument for a 10 story building there, since Fox Hill is right next door. 👿

My guess is the owner of the building Rite Aid is in would love for them to close.
the other half of the building (former laundromat) has bven closed for years, with no sign it will ever be rented again.
I think somebody wants to turn it into more high density “deluxe, Luxury” overpriced housing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
