Three adjacent properties in Jersey City that have long sat vacant could be replaced with a multi-family development as part of a new plan by the Long Island-based owner of the site.
Inn at Garfield, LLC, of Great Neck, is proposing a new four-story building at 222, 224, and 226 Garfield Avenue in the Greenville section of the city. The properties, which are located by the corner of Pearsall Avenue not far from the Danforth Avenue Station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, have sat undeveloped for well over a decade in this largely residential neighborhood and partially contain trees and shrubbery.
The developer bought the site for $445,000 from a Bergen County resident at the end of 2017, according to property records. A legal notice shows that the company is planning for the development to include 12 units with one parking space per apartment. The building would be 43 feet tall, 13 feet over what is currently permitted in this area.
The Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment needs to approve Inn at Garfield, LLC’s application for Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval in order for the project to continue to advance. The company is also seeking variances such as height and use. The board is scheduled to hear the matter during its next meeting, which is being held this Thursday, April 11, at 6:30 p.m.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
