A single-story building in Hoboken that previously housed a Domino’s Pizza is slated for development.
The project is planned for 462 Newark Street, between Jefferson Street and Adams Street, in Hoboken’s Ward 4. Developer 462 Newark Street, LLC, which is registered out of the same Willow Avenue address as Chillemi Construction, is planning to develop a five-story mixed-use structure, according to a legal notice, and is seeking site plan approval from the Hudson County Planning Board.
James McNeight, AIA is the project architect. The City of Hoboken’s Planning Board granted approval to the developer with conditions in July, 2016. Minutes from the meeting show that “the board felt confident that the residential building will be a positive addition to the neighborhood, give the appropriate proposed density and the similar scale of surrounding residential buildings in the neighborhood”.
According to city records, the project is slated to include four three-bedroom apartments atop commercial space on the ground floor. The second-floor unit is set to include a rear roof deck as well as access to the backyard, and the fifth-floor unit will have a private deck on the building’s green roof. No outdoor space will be provided for residents of the third and fourth floors. Plus, no parking spaces will be located on site, although a stormwater detention system that is reportedly twice the size of the North Hudson Sewerage Authority’s requirements will be installed.
Currently, the site contains a one-story building previously occupied by Hoboken’s only location of Domino’s Pizza, which closed at the beginning of 2017 after being in the building for two decades. The building will be demolished to make way for the new development, but the city documents from July show that Domino’s is slated to return and occupy the commercial space when the new building is completed, and will offer pizza delivery by bicycle.
462 Newark Street, LLC acquired the property in December, 2015 from a New Milford resident, according to NJ Parcels records. It sits within close walking distance of Washington Street, Hoboken Terminal, Jersey City’s Newport Plaza, and the upcoming Southwest Park.
The Hudson County Planning Board approved the project during its meeting on February 21st.
