A five-story building could replace a parking lot on Jersey City’s West Side.
The parking lot in question, which is located at 804, 806, 808, and 810 West Side Avenue, is the focus of an application from Skillman Avenue-based 804 West Side Ave., LLC seeking preliminary and final major site plan approval with variances from the Jersey City Planning Board.
The four adjacent parcels are situated between Fairmount Avenue and Montgomery Street near Saint Peter’s University and Lincoln Park.
The application shows that the proposed development designed by Hampton Hill Architecture would include 4,568 square feet of retail space and 32 residential units, 20 of which would be one-bedroom units while the remaining 12 would be two-bedroom units.
No “affordable housing units” would be created, according to the developer’s application.
A principal points statement says that if approved and ultimately constructed, the building would also include a 1,334-square-foot roof deck and 16 parking spaces.
The proposal is scheduled to go before the Jersey City Planning Board today, Tuesday, November 23, though an agenda shows that a request was made to have the hearing take place on December 7 instead.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to go before the Jersey City Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
