NJ Transit presented this mockup of their plan at the City Council last Wednesday.
The mammoth towers are gone but they are looking for buildings in the two dozen floor range.
The City is proposing smaller buildings and a reduced overall footprint,
from three million square feet to two million square feet being the difference.

Talking Ed Note: A referendum ballot on rent control is the additional item on the agenda.
