Bergen County’s largest city could soon see the construction of another mixed-use development as the municipality’s population continues to increase.
A six-story complex is now on the books for 430 Main Street in Hackensack’s downtown. Located at the corner of East Anderson Street, the property used to contain Pro Auto Repair until the business closed within the past few years. Then, near the end of 2017, 18 Hackensack, LLC of Cliffside Park paid $650,000 for the property, according to NJ Parcels.
Now, a public notice states that this former auto repair business could be replaced with a 40-unit building. The mixed-use development could also contain a café on the ground floor with outdoor patio seating provided along Main Street for customers. The name of the proposed café is not listed in the notice. Parking would be provided on both the ground floor and in the basement while the residential portion of the complex would be contained within the building’s top five floors.
18 Hackensack, LLC is scheduled to go before the Hackensack Planning Board on Wednesday, February 6, at 7:00 p.m. as part of the company’s attempt to receive Site Plan approval with multiple variances.
The site is situated across the street from the Hackensack Sears, an institution of sorts in the city, and is within walking distance of Johnson Park along the Hackensack River. The Anderson Street station on New Jersey Transit’s Pascack Valley Line to Hoboken, Secaucus, and Rockland County, New York, is also nearby.
Hackensack, the Bergen County seat, has seen plenty of proposals for new residential and mixed-use complexes over the last few years. For instance, in the last two years, we have reported on plans to construct 82-unit and 235-unit buildings on Main Street, an 88-unit rental project on Sussex Street, a 377-unit complex on Zabriskie Street, and a 60-unit development on West Camden Street.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Hackensack Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
