Another proposal to bring a high-rise development near the Hudson River waterfront is expected to go before the Weehawken Planning Board tonight.
A public hearing about a recent application by Hartz Mountain Industries concerning plans for a group of properties along Harbor Boulevard at Lincoln Harbor is listed on the agenda for the meeting beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Secaucus-based regional real estate company is seeking Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances in connection with a proposed 14-story multi-family development, according to a legal notice.
While it is not yet clear how many units would be included in the building, what is known is that Hartz Mountain is planning a realignment of Harbor Boulevard near the site along with the construction of a dog park in the vicinity. In addition, according to the notice, the company is expected to “seek subdivision approval to create a new tax lot for the project site and an amendment to the planned development master plan for all of Lincoln Harbor.”
Jersey Digs reached out to an attorney for Hartz Mountain on Monday morning for additional information regarding the application, but our request for comment has not yet been returned.
The news of this application comes several months after a previous plan by Hartz Mountain to construct an 18-story complex with over 300 units on the premises at Lincoln Harbor was denied by the Weehawken Planning Board. As we reported in January, the developer recently filed a lawsuit against the Township of Weehawken.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Weehawken Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
