MVP One, LLC submitted plans calling for an all-residential project to be constructed at 30 and 32 Jones Street in Ward C. The firm is seeking preliminary and final major site plan approval with variances.
The South Plainfield-based developer’s application states that 19 units would be included. No parking would be provided at the site, which is situated a few blocks south of the Journal Square Transportation Center.
If approved and constructed, the building would be 55 feet tall and contain 14 one-bedroom units and five two-bedroom units with zero “affordable housing units created,” according to the application. Site plans from Jorge Mastropietro Architects Atelier that were released by Jersey City’s municipal government show that there would be a bike storage room, roof deck, and tenant storage area as part of the development.
The parcel at 32 Jones Street was previously home to a longstanding house that used to contain the Hudson Pride Connections Center, but the structure was torn down in 2019 after a demolition permit was issued. The 30 Jones Street tract still includes a two-story house.
An ownership disclosure statement form that was released by the City of Jersey City identified Vyomesh Patel and Parul Patel as each holding 50 percent ownership interest in MVP One, LLC. The company previously had plans for a four-story building with nine units at 32 Jones Street, according to a 2019 resolution.
The Jersey City Planning Board is scheduled to hear this application during a public Zoom meeting this Tuesday, November 10 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
