A group of properties along the southern edge of Paterson could become the site of a mixed-use development should a new proposal be approved.
The Paterson Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hear an application by a developer involving 141-147 Crooks Avenue along with neighboring 144-146 and 146-148 Knickerbocker Avenue during a special virtual meeting on Monday, November 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The development firm, which is simply named 141-147 Crooks Avenue, LLC, is proposing a five-story building with 32 apartments, parking, and 4,344 square feet of ground floor retail space, according to the meeting agenda. Each apartment would contain two bedrooms.
The agenda noted that parking for 14 vehicles would be situated at 193-195 Knickerbocker Avenue, a tract located on the east side of Getty Avenue, while 33 spaces would be provided at the site of the proposed development.
A copy of 141-147 Crooks Avenue, LLC’s application that was released by Paterson’s municipal government identifies Heritage Madison Architecture, LLC as the company that prepared the plans for this $6 million proposal.
Located between Main Street and Getty Avenue just a few feet away from Clifton, the site where this development could be constructed is situated near bus service to Manhattan, Passaic, Rutherford, Paramus, Ridgewood, and Newark.
The Knickerbocker Avenue side of the premises contains housing while the Crooks Avenue side includes a building that was previously home to Al-Quds Supermarket, Zam Zam Super Food Store, Colamerica, and a restaurant.
