Over the last several years, as Jersey Digs has reported, multiple development projects have been proposed up and down Avenue E in Bayonne. From a two-pronged plan at the site of the recently demolished St. Joseph Cathedral to a 20-unit building at the Burnett Electric property, developers are continuing to focus on the Avenue E corridor. Now, yet another complex is being planned for the area.

A company called 746 Ave E Bayonne Urban Renewal LLC could build a residential development at 736, 738, and 742 Avenue E near East 46th and East 47th Streets. The proposed project would rise seven stories over the surrounding area and be roughly 100 feet tall, according to a public notice, which also mentioned that 82 residential units and 82 parking spaces are planned.

The properties are adjacent to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail (HBLR) tracks and are visible from Route 440. The 45th Street HBLR station, which is the first stop south of Downtown Jersey City on the Bayonne Flyer service, is situated around the corner from the tracts. Part of the site includes the Beacon Oil Company building, which is notable because of the structure designed to look like a beacon on top of the roof.

The Bayonne Planning Board is set to hear 746 Ave E Bayonne Urban Renewal LLC’s application for Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval on Tuesday, March 10, at 6:00 p.m.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Bayonne Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
