A tract in Paterson that has long sat undeveloped could become the site of a multi-family project if a proposal by the owner of the premises comes to fruition.

The vacant property in question is 182-188 East 33rd Street, a lot situated between Broadway and 13th Avenue in the Passaic County city’s Eastside neighborhood.

DTF Holdings, LLC is looking to construct a 32-unit building at the site, according to a legal notice that was issued earlier this month. The development would consist of 16 one-bedroom units and 16 two-bedroom units.

Deed records indicate that DTF Holdings, LLC is registered out of a post office box in Lakewood. The notice says that the company is seeking preliminary and final site plan approval with variances for use, parking, minimum lot area, lot width, setback, maximum lot coverage, density, and floor area ratio.

The matter is expected to go before the Paterson Zoning Board of Adjustment during a virtual meeting on Thursday, January 21, at 7:30 p.m., according to the notice. The application was previously scheduled to be heard by the board in late 2020.

The agenda for the meeting on November 12 mentioned that “the second through fifth floors will contain 4 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom apartments per floor” and that “the first floor will contain 32 covered parking spaces.”

The parcel is situated a few blocks from Eastside Park near the old home of Temple Emanuel. New Jersey Transit’s Broadway station on the Bergen County Line in Fair Lawn and the Paterson station on the Main Line are each located a mile and a half from 182-188 East 33rd Street, while bus service to Upper Manhattan’s George Washington Bridge Bus Station operates along Broadway.

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