Nearly three years after the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) granted approval with conditions to a proposed development near a West Side intersection, a project with more than three times the number of residential units is planned for the premises.
During its Zoom meeting this Thursday, August 13, the ZBA is scheduled to once again hear plans for the property at 346 Virginia Avenue.
Back in 2017, Jersey Digs reported that a three-story mixed-use project with a dozen residential units was expected to be developed on the tract, which is also known as 132 Mallory Avenue. The proposal by 132 Mallory Ave JC, LLC involved a conversion of the existing one-story warehouse into ground floor offices.
Now, the latest application by 132 Mallory Ave JC, LLC seeks Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances such as use and height in order to construct a five-story building. The developer “intends to clear the property” in order to develop 40 residential units on the upper four floors along with office space and 22 parking spaces on the ground floor, according to a notice.
The current proposal also reportedly involves an amenity roof deck.
The notice listed that this application also involves neighboring 138 Mallory Avenue, but that address is not mentioned on the agenda for Thursday’s ZBA hearing. The virtual meeting is scheduled to begin 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.
