A property that sits near the southern end of Bayonne’s main drag adjacent to a busy highway could become the site of what would be one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood.
A firm recently submitted an application to the Bayonne Planning Board for Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval in connection with a proposed eight-story development at 211-217 Broadway. The building planned for the site would include 49 apartments, according to a legal notice issued at the end of November.
The pricing of the proposed units has yet to be revealed, though the notice mentioned that the development is slated to include amenities such as a fitness center, game room, and rooftop deck. The developer, 211-217 Broadway, LLC, was incorporated out of Bayonne in March, with Issa Musharbash being listed as the firm’s registered agent.
Property records list that another company, 211 Broadway, LLC, has owned 211-217 Broadway since acquiring the lot nearly six years ago for $575,000. The previous owner, Dr. Benjamin Zall, operated a dental office out of a one-story building on the premises that was demolished within the last few years.
The site sits next to Route 440 and is a short walk away from the 8th Street station, which has been the southernmost stop on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail’s service to Jersey City and Hoboken since 2011. The proposed development would include a garage with one parking space per apartment, according to the notice.
The Bayonne Planning Board is scheduled to take up this application during its next meeting on Tuesday, December 10, at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Bayonne Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
