682 Nj 440 Jersey City Development 1The executive board of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency approved local developer Myneni Properties to build and operate a 120-unit mixed-use complex at 682 NJ-440. The executive board said the 12-story project includes ground floor commercial space.

JCRA first designated Myneni Properties to develop the site in 2015.

Myneni’s mixed-use project will be located within walking distance to the Hudson Mall, the West Side Avenue Hudson-Bergen Light Rail station and the West Side Avenue business district.

This site currently contains a small shopping center with a liquor store and check cashing store among other businesses.

Jersey Digs previously reported on Fields Construction’s development at 16 Bennet Street, a five-story, 63-unit apartment project nearby.

The West Side neighborhood is also set to add 600 units immediately adjacent to the West Side light rail station. Jersey Digs previously reported on the sale of 400 Claremont Avenue by Synres Chemical for $17m.

      • There are many studies in place to minimize the traffic… Maybe commuters going to Bayonne will take a different route… It’s belong developed with the mindset of how everything will work out…

    • please explain how you think a big building on the side of a busy highway is a great news. I can’t think of any good ideas. plenty of “good” food options to choose from, like Applebee’s and Burger King or Popeye’s across the street. or maybe the McDonald’s around the corner on Communpiaw where the homeless hang out after pan handling on that highway.

      and I do not expect new buildings to change any of that. sorry.

    • My friend Val. You clearly know nothing about developing. You should learn more especially how new development sparks the economy in a blightened area and can deter crime. 🙂

  1. I hope that yhey are considering all of yhe necessar infrarstructure that is going to be needed to accommodate the traffic, sewage, garbage collection, and just people space

  2. horrible. the most congested area traffic wise is going to get way worse. zero talk on infrastructure on traffic ease, transportation ease, or new schools. most politicians or developers don’t seem to care about those things.

    • So extending the lite rail and creation of Bayfront with all the above is just a beginning… Traffic is real, but that’s where public transport comes in place… And yes 440 has traffic jams, not all the time, however Mallory next street over is clear most of the time… Jc is a perfect place for expansion… Manhattan seems to have same issues, but nothing stopping from more and more development there… Brooklyn same thing… I embrace development in West side and the heart of our city. Finally we will not be the place on the wrong side of the river! Let’s make Jersey-City the destination not only the temp stay for New Yorkers or tourists!

  3. NOOOOO MORE UNITS FOR OUTSIDERS. WHAT’S FOR THE PEOPLE BORN OR RAISED HERE? NOT FAIR IT’S GETTING OVER CROWDED. STOP THE CONSTRUCTIONS AND BRUSHING US OUT OF OUR CITY BCUS IT’S TOO EXPENSIVE. INSTEAD FIX WHERE WE LIVE. THIS IS A VERY SMALL TOWN WE ARE NOT A BIG CITY. I’M AGAINST 100% FOR MORE UNITS TO MAKE OUTSIDERS LIVE EASIER$$$$

    • Ummm there are affordable housing built now more than ever which gives Jersey City residents an advantage of receiving those brand new apartments since all have more than a week before anyone else outside Jersey City in a first come first serve basis… Everything is fair. And why not allow anyone looking to move to our city? People actually want to come here unlike before…

  4. The infrastructure in that area cannot support this type of density, as currently constituted. Outside of the box thinking, like reducing the footprint of the Hudson Mall, would be needed to accommodate developments like this.
    440 is routinely jammed, except for maybe early Sunday mornings…this is short-sighted.
