A group of properties located opposite one of Newark’s historic cemeteries could see their existing structures torn down in order to facilitate the development of a new residential building.
The Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment has a pending application involving a proposed five-story project at parcels such as 11-13 and 15-19 Herbert Place. The tracts in question are situated across the street from Mount Pleasant Cemetery just east of Broadway in the city’s North Ward.
Documents published by Newark’s municipal government show that developer 17 Herbert Place, LLC is seeking site plan approval with variances for a building with 24 residential units and 20 parking spaces.
If approved, the development on the 11,044-square-foot site would include a dozen one-bedroom units, 11 two-bedroom units, one three-bedroom unit, and a 1,890-square-foot rooftop terrace, according to a February 3 memo to the board by Gerard Haizel of Nishuane Group, LLC.
The rooftop and the overall proposed design of the building are illustrated in renderings credited to Tomasz Bona that were released by the City of Newark.
17 Herbert Place, LLC’s application includes an affidavit of ownership that associates Bogdan Malinowski of Brooklyn with the premises.
The board is scheduled to hear these plans during its next meeting over Zoom on Thursday, February 11, at 6:00 p.m., according to the meeting agenda.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Newark Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
