A tract on Palisade Avenue is the latest site in Jersey City where development could be in store.

Jersey City’s municipal government has received plans from a Duncan Avenue-based firm that call for a five-story building to be constructed at 216 Palisade Avenue.

The property, which is also known as 214-216 Palisade Avenue, is located in an area of The Heights near Christ Hospital that has several medical offices. In fact, over the years, a number of doctor’s offices have operated within the existing two-story building on the premises.

Documents regarding the proposal that were released by the City of Jersey City are inconsistent regarding the number of residential units that this development would include if completed.

An application and site plans say that there would be 22 residential units with a mixture of studios, one-bedroom units, and two-bedroom units. However, a principal points statement first says that 23 units are planned before touting the project as a 24-unit development.

Inside the building, there would be four “moderate affordable housing units” and medical office space, according to the application. The project would also include 24 parking spaces and a roof deck.

This matter was initially scheduled to go before the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment on January 13, but minutes show that it has been carried to the upcoming meeting on Thursday, January 27.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
