Jersey City Home Depot

We don't usually think too highly of big box stores, especially when they are entering an urban environment that is better served with pedestrian friendly business districts. But that being said, the Home Depot under construction at the mouth of the Holland Tunnel is featuring a moderately unique design for a big box store. Construction began a few months back, but more recently the construction has taken a much more visible position:

These photos were taken on a Saturday afternoon when traffic entering the Holland Tunnel was backed up onto the elevated segment of the Turnpike. Just imagine when this store is finished.

Here you can see that this Home Depot isn't just a box. Its a box with funny shapes:
