A developer has been given the go-ahead to move forward with tearing down a North Bergen house in order to construct an apartment building.

Rocha Builders, LLC received Site Plan approval from the North Bergen Zoning Board of Adjustment in January in order to demolish the single-family home at 2601 Jane Street near 26th Street and build a four-story development. The Secaucus-based company’s plan calls for the proposed building to include 12 units, according to a legal notice. Variances such as use and height were granted by the board.


The approval came after this matter was also on the agenda for meetings in October, November, and December 2018, according to the notice. Demetrios Kaltsis is listed as the project architect. A rendering posted by Kaltsis online shows that there are one-bedroom and two-bedroom units planned. 18 parking spaces are planned within the building’s ground floor parking garage.

Minutes from the Zoning Board show that an 11-unit building was previously proposed for the site but the approvals have since expired.


Located atop a hill next to a wooded area, the property is connected to Paterson Plank Road and Routes 1 and 9 by a narrow one-way street along the hillside and might seem at first like it is located somewhat off the beaten path. However, this neighborhood on the southwestern edge of the township recently saw the construction of a large five-story development called Grand27 and now has an Aldi food market nearby. New Jersey Transit also provides bus service a few blocks away along John F. Kennedy Boulevard.

    I’m strongly interested to obtaining a one bedroom apartment in the complex .
