A proposal that would bring an industrial-inspired food vendor market to the Mile Square City will soon be heard by officials in Hoboken, who could potentially give the green light to revamp a sizable Clinton Street property.

Jersey Digs broke the news late last year about plans to revitalize 710 Clinton Street. The land was home to a video production soundstage called Cobalt Stages for years and spans about a third of the block next to the Wonder Lofts complex.

New owners The Taurasi Group worked with MVMK Architecture and Design to draw up a plan that calls for a five-story building with 11 residences above an indoor food court. The market portion calls for 15 small retail spaces plus an open floor area for kiosks on the first floor.

The largest spaces in the market span about 600 square feet, while the smallest run about 250 square feet plus one 200 square foot space. Documents submitted by the developer assert that the market “will provide an economic development benefit by providing start-up space for food industry entrepreneurs who could eventually shift into larger, more permanent locations within Hoboken’s business districts.”

New images of the interior space showcase the aesthetic of the market, which would feature a second-floor seating mezzanine area. The dining level is set to span 1,756 square feet while providing accessible restrooms and management offices.

The 11 residential units on the top three floors of the development would break down as three two-bedrooms, three three-bedrooms, three four-bedrooms, and two five-bedroom spaces. The top two floors would feature duplex-style units and the second-floor residences would sport 328 square foot private rear decks.

A bicycle room with 14 racks is included in the plans, as is a 1,500-square-foot common roof deck plus green roof. The exterior of the project façade would utilize a mix of metal cladding, cement board panels, brick veneer, and double-hung, aluminum-clad wood windows.

The 710 Clinton Street application needs several variances to come to fruition. The first involves a d (1) use deviation for the food court, which will consist of Class III and IV restaurants. The project also needs a variance for about 12 extra feet in height and for providing no parking when 31 spaces are required.

Three other variances related to maximum lot coverage of 100%, a lack of minimum rear yard setbacks, and a roof appurtenances deviation are also needed to move the project forward.

The application for 710 Clinton Street is slated to be heard by Hoboken’s zoning board during their June 20 meeting. The session, being held on Zoom, begins at 7 p.m. and can be accessed at this link.
