Records from the Hoboken Planning Board show that there are plans for a new residential development at 830-834 Park Avenue, between 8th Street and 9th Street, in Ward 3. Developer Gene Super, of Essex County, is seeking approval without variances for this project, which calls for a four-story building with two residential units on each floor, for a total of eight. James McNeight is listed as the development’s architect.
This is not the first time that Super has proposed a building like this at the site. Back in 2015, he planned to construct a five-story development with seven parking spaces on the first floor and eight units above. However, City records show that the plans were denied by the Hoboken Zoning Board of Adjustment, in part because the building would “not be consistent with the height of the other buildings in the area.”
Currently, the property contains three residential buildings, two of which are multi-family houses that dates to 1885 while the other is a small single-family home that was built in 1920. There is also a surface parking lot on the premise. The buildings would be demolished and the parking lot would be removed to make way for the development. NJ Parcels records show that Super became the owner of the single-family home in 2004, and that he acquired the other structures in 2013 for $999,900 from a Short Hills family.
The Hoboken Planning Board was scheduled to hear the latest proposal on Wednesday, June 14th.
