A new project is aiming to bring more housing to a dense Jersey City community.

Data from the Jersey City Department of Planning shows that a five-story mixed-use building is set to be constructed at 311-315 West Side Avenue, at the southwest corner of Culver Avenue, in Ward B’s West Side neighborhood. When completed, this multifamily development would include 32 residential units on the top four floors, with commercial space available on the first floor. In addition, 19 parking spaces would be provided onsite. Applicant N & V Developers, LLC is requesting a deviation for minimum parking from the Jersey City Planning Board.

The tracts at the 311-315 West Side Avenue site have been vacant lots covered in weeds and debris, with signs advertising an environmental investigation and cleanup underway. This is because there used to be an auto garage and Exxon station on the premises. N&V Developers is the owner of the properties, according to NJ Parcels records, which show that the company is registered out of a house on Lincoln Street in The Heights.

Situated across the street from the landmark Miss America Diner, the West Side Avenue property is centrally located, and is within walking distance of New Jersey City University, the West Side Avenue Station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, the West Side Theatre, and several businesses.

This is far from the only new development in this part of Jersey City. There have been several infill proposals in the neighborhood, and a new mixed-use project is opening next door to this site at 305 West Side Avenue. Plus, a few blocks away, New Jersey City University’s University Place project will bring hundreds of residential units for students and the general public, a performing arts center, academic space, and locations of ShopRite and LA Fitness.
