Westin Hotel Jersey City

The Westin Hotel in Jersey City broke ground a few months back on an empty lot along Washington Blvd. The site is bound on the west by the light rail, and Sixth Street to the south, situated next door to the Newport Mall. Below, a view from Sixth Street and the light rail; note how close those rails are to the base of the building.
