Modifications have been made to a project that involves the redevelopment of an old hospital site near Routes 1 and 9 in Union County.
During a meeting in January, the Elizabeth Planning Board memorialized its second amended approval of a resolution involving the Jersey Walk project at 907-931 East Jersey Street.
Lakewood-based CMT Developers, LLC’s plan for the vacant former Elizabeth General Medical Center premises still includes two buildings with 274 residential units combined, but each residential structure is now expected to be six stories tall, according to the new resolution.
The one along East Jersey Street is now reportedly slated to include 221 units and 3,000 square feet of retail space while the other along Lafayette Street is set to contain 53 units. The latter building “will be attached to the existing parking garage from the hospital complex,” the document says.
The latest version of the proposal also involves the development of a circular two-story amenity building between the residential structures that would include features such as an indoor pool, gym, and roof amenity space, according to the new resolution.
Jersey Digs first reported on this project back in 2017. A resolution approved by the Elizabeth Planning Board at the time stated that one of the two residential buildings at the complex was expected to be 10 stories tall and include 111 apartments while the other was slated to be seven stories tall with 163 apartments.
