A site located along a heavily traveled part of Route 28 in a suburban Union County borough could become home to nearly three dozen apartments.
The parcels at 372 East Westfield Avenue and 4 Sheridan Avenue in Roselle Park are where a company is currently proposing a four-story building with 33 apartments, according to municipal development filings and a notice of hearing. The proposal calls for a mixture of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units along with 66 parking spaces, an exercise room, and an outdoor terrace area.
A previous version of the plans involved 38 residential units and 76 parking spaces, according to an application package.
The premises, which include the Sarino Auto Body site, are located near the municipal limits of Roselle and Elizabeth. A second revised prinicipal points statement regarding the project says that “the existing nonconforming building” would be demolished should this proposal advance.
Unlike the 57-unit development proposal for West Webster Avenue by Roselle Park’s stop on New Jersey Transit’s Raritan Valley Line that Jersey Digs reported on in November 2020, this project would be built a mile away from the train station. However, the 58 and 113 bus lines to Elizabeth and Manhattan, respectively, operate along Route 28.
This matter is scheduled to go before the Roselle Park Municipal Land Use Board during a meeting over Zoom on Monday, March 15, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting agenda lists the project applicant as 372 E Westfield Ave, LLC, a firm that state business filings indicate was incorporated out of Belleville in 2019.
