A meeting this week could be the public’s last chance to weigh in regarding two proposed developments near Jersey City’s border with Hoboken.


Final major site plan approval hearings regarding the mixed-use buildings that Newport Associates Development Company is envisioning for the corner of Grove Street and 18th Street are scheduled to take place during the Jersey City Planning Board’s meeting on Tuesday, October 19.

The two developments are each expected to be 10 stories tall and would sit diagonally across from each other on properties that currently sit vacant near Lackawanna Center.

Meanwhile, at 659 Grove Street, developers are looking to construct 139 residential units, 11,050 square feet of retail space, and 102 parking spaces, site plans show.
