Although not to the extent of neighborhoods like Journal Square and Downtown, there has been an increase recently in development proposals for Jersey City’s Greenville section. Now, a property along one of the community’s busiest corridors could become the site of a multi-family building.
1811 Kennedy Blvd, LLC, which is registered out of a house on Mercer Loop, is seeking to construct a four-story development at 1811 John F. Kennedy Boulevard between McAdoo and Stevens Avenues. The project is slated to consist of eight residential units, according to a legal notice from the city, but it is not clear whether or not parking would be provided on the premises for residents.
The site was acquired by the developer for $175,000 in 2016, according to NJ Parcels. Located near Public School 34 and the Greenville Branch of the Jersey City Free Public Library, the property has been used for parking in recent years.
The proposal was originally supposed to be heard by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) in May, but the matter was adjourned to the board’s meeting on Thursday, June 14. 1811 Kennedy Blvd, LLC is seeking Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances for parking and use in order for the project to move forward.
The ZBA’s meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall on Thursday, June 14th.
