A developer could soon find out whether their plans to tear down a house in Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood and build a five-story building in its place will be allowed to move forward.

60 Kossuth, LLC is scheduled to go before the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment this week to present a proposal for 66 and 68 Kossuth Street, two East Ward properties located close to Routes 1 and 9.

The company’s application says that they are looking to demolish the existing two-story two-family home and subsequently construct a development with 13 residential units. Seven parking spaces would be provided on the premises.

Site plans from CREARC, LLC show that the proposed building would have a height of 57.5 feet and that each unit would include two bedrooms.

The application’s disclosure statement identifies Ana Paula Goncalves as a managing member and registered agent of 60 Kossuth, LLC.

This section of the Ironbound is more than a mile from Newark Penn Station and sits below one of the flight paths leading to and from Newark Liberty International Airport.

The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment’s hearing on the matter is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 25, at 6:00 p.m. over Zoom.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to go before the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
