Union City – one of the most densely populated cities in America – is on the way to welcoming more residents as an approved project is slated to begin construction later this year.
Several vacant properties at 2704-2710 Kennedy Boulevard in Union City are primed for a revitalization via an approved mixed-use building from a company called H & A Development. The lots are not far from the highway exit off Route 495 and just a short walk from Union City High School.
Designed by Pereiras Architects Ubiquitous, the development is slated to rise six stories and include 70 units. The living spaces skew smaller, as the project includes 61 one-bedrooms, five two-bedrooms, and four three-bedroom spaces.
Seven units in the complex will be set aside as affordable housing and 137 parking spots will be included on the first two floors of the building in compliance with zoning requirements. The remainder of the street level will feature two commercial spaces and a common deck terrace is included on the development’s roof.
A black brick facade will be utilized on the first two floors of the building, with the remainder of the property sporting nichiha panel siding on the top floors plus some stucco trim.
Final construction documents are currently being drawn up for the project, which is tentatively scheduled to break ground during the summer months.
