A property located at the Six Corners in North Bergen could become home to a new residential development project.
Bergen Turnpike Enterprise, LLC is scheduled to go before the North Bergen Zoning Board of Adjustment during a Zoom meeting this Thursday, July 9 at 6:00 p.m. to request Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan Approval with variances in connection with their plans for the corner of Bergen Turnpike and Liberty Avenue.
The company is planning a four-story building with 21 residential units. The first floor of the development would consist of 21 parking spaces, though a public notice states that 38 spaces would typically be required for a project of this sort.
“The proposed use is not permitted in the zone district,” according to the meeting agenda, which adds that “the deviations from the conditions are consistent with the development pattern in the immediate neighborhood and will not have a substantial negative impact on the zone scheme. The subject property can accommodate the proposed structure and density.”
The meeting agenda and “all supporting maps, site plans and documents” were posted earlier this week on the Township of North Bergen’s website.
Additionally, the agenda and notice stated that the development is planned for Lot 7 of Block 113 at 4221-4237 Bergen Turnpike, but Hudson County tax records indicate that Lot 7 refers just to 4237 Bergen Turnpike. In fact, the North Bergen Municipal Court and Parking Authority occupy the site at 4225 Bergen Turnpike while the 4237 Bergen Turnpike site includes a building that once contained Keystone Appliances.
The Hudson County tax records for 4237 Bergen Turnpike show that the property was acquired by Bergen Turnpike Enterprise, LLC for $590,000 back in 2018 and that the building at the site dates back to 1940. Bergen Turnpike Enterprise, LLC is registered out of a mansion in Saddle River.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the North Bergen Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
