One of the last properties in New Jersey that drivers on Route 505 pass before entering New York State might become home to one of the Garden State’s closest multi-family developments to the Empire State.

An apartment building is being proposed for 256 Livingston Street in a predominantly commercial section of the Bergen County borough of Northvale.

Livingston Street Holdings, LLC is planning a three-story building with 40 residential units, according to documents released by Northvale’s municipal government. A stormwater management statement says that there would be six studios, 28 one-bedroom units, four two-bedroom units, and two three-bedroom units.

A total of 73 parking spaces would be provided on the premises, with a rendering from Environetics Group Architects, P.C. showing that some of these spaces would be located below the residential portion of the building.

This development would replace a two-story office building that has been home to multiple businesses over the years, including ones related to education and auto repair.
