Last summer we told you about 19 East in Bayonne, the latest project from Collingswood-based developer Ingerman. Yesterday, city officials bundled up and joined them in the cold to break ground on the six-story building. Located off Broadway at 19 East 19th Street, the $35 million project is expected to be completed in April or May 2018.
“I’m very excited about this project,” said Mayor Jimmy Davis. “The people will now be able to shop, dine, go to cafes, and just bring back Broadway the way we expect it to.”
Part of Bayonne’s burgeoning revitalization, 19 East, designed by Minno & Wasko Architects, will bring 138 residential units on four floors, with 212 parking spaces on the two floors below, to space that used to be a vacant lot, a parking lot, and a Housing Authority building that had been sitting vacant for the past decade.
Amenities at 19 East will include a juice bar, yoga studio, two roof decks, a full-service gym, two roof decks, and community space on each floor. A public park is slated for development as well, and could host events like farmers markets and holiday celebrations.
Rent for the studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments will range from $1,800 to $2,400.
