A group of industrial and commercial properties near a train station along the Raritan Valley Line in suburban Union County could become the site of a mixed-use development.
The parcels, which are located at 118, 120, 130, and 138 West Webster Avenue in Roselle Park, are the focus of an application package that was submitted by 140 W. Webster Ave, LLC. The proposal involves a three-story building with 57 residential units and 4,000 square feet of retail space, according to a November 3 memo from Neglia Engineering Associates to the Roselle Park Municipal Land Use Board.
Six of these residential units would be “affordable,” according to a public notice. The memo also noted that there would be 38 one-bedroom units, 18 two-bedroom units, and one three-bedroom unit as part of the project along with 92 parking spaces.
Site plans from gk+a Architects, PC that were released to Jersey Digs by Roselle Park’s municipal government show that the development could include a roof deck and a 1,250-square-foot outdoor public plaza.
The premises take up more than an acre near Roselle Park High School and the Locust Street entrance to the Roselle Park Train Station. Companies such as C&M Pools and H&H Building Supply have occupied the site over the years, but the memo from Neglia Engineering Associates indicates that the existing structures would be torn down to make way for the new development.
The Roselle Park Municipal Land Use Board is scheduled to hear these plans during its meeting on Monday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Roselle Park Municipal Land Use Board and other commissions are subject to change.
