A plan to tear down a longstanding industrial building in a West New York neighborhood and construct a six-story residential development in its place could receive key approvals this week.
During a virtual meeting on Thursday, April 1, at 6:30 p.m., the West New York Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBA) is scheduled to hear an application involving a proposed 36-unit multi-family building at 588 56th Street.
Developer Potential Realty, LLC is seeking to demolish the existing two-story warehouse on the premises in order to build a project with 28 one-bedroom units and eight studios, according to a February 5 memo from Community Housing & Planning Associates, Inc. to the ZBA. The memo says that the building’s lowest two floors would include parking while the upper four floors would be residential.
Site plans from CPA Architecture were released by West New York’s municipal government associate Potential Realty, LLC with an address in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The plans also show that the proposed building could include a fitness center in the basement along with an outdoor terrace on the roof.
Property sales records show that Potential Realty, LLC acquired 588 56th Street for just under $1 million in July 2020 from a Guttenberg-based firm. The property is located between Jackson and Jefferson streets and is close to Miller Park.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be discussed by the West New York Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
