For the second time in six years, a new residential building is being proposed for a vacant group of properties next to a Jersey City public school.


Back in 2014, the Village Neighborhood Association posted online that a five-story development with 20 units had been planned for the four tracts that make up 377-383 Fourth Street next to Dr. Michael Conti Public School #5. At the time, the association wrote that the variances needed for the project to proceed had been denied by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA).

Now, more than half a decade later, plans to bring a 20-unit building to the premises have been reactivated. Alan Cancro, who applied in 2018 to bring an eight-story development near the Five Corners, is now seeking to construct a four-story project at 377-383 Fourth Street, according to a public notice. Cancro is seeking Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval from the ZBA along with variances related to parking and density.

  • Lakeshore Jd 600x500

The ZBA is scheduled to hear the latest plans on Wednesday, March 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
