A development proposal that would bring two new five-story buildings and a park overlooking the Manhattan skyline to Union City will be the subject of a community meeting this week.

Sky Pointe, LLC has announced that a meeting regarding the plans for close to a dozen properties near the corner of Mountain Road and Manhattan Avenue is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, at 6:00 p.m.

The program at Colin Powell Elementary School, located just two blocks west of the site where the new complex could be constructed, is expected to include a description of the project, according to a public notice.

The new meeting date comes more than two months after the program was initially expected to be held. The event had been scheduled for July 18 but was canceled the day beforehand.

At the time, Jersey Digs exclusively reported that the development is expected to consist of a total of 99 units with an 8,500-square-foot public park and viewing platform situated between the two buildings.

The entire complex would replace several vacant buildings along with other neighboring tracts and be built atop a two-story parking facility with 185 spaces.

The public notice advertising the new date of the meeting indicates that the key project details previously released in July have not been adjusted in the time since.

Sills Cummis & Gross, the Newark-based law firm listed alongside the name of the developer on the notice, did not immediately respond to Jersey Digs’ questions about the project and the community meeting.

Note to readers: The dates of community meetings are subject to change.
