A new residential development is planned at 366 6th Street, between Division Street and Brunswick Street, in Jersey City’s Ward E. City records show that when completed, the building, which will be located in a Neighborhood Commercial District Zone, will be six stories tall, and will contain 20 residential units. 20 parking spaces will be provided for residents on the ground floor, and there will be a 3,146 square foot green roof.
Preliminary and final major site plan approval with variances for height, minimum rear yard setback, minimum drive aisle width, and compact parking spaces, was granted with conditions by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment during its meeting on February 16 to project applicant Kyle D. Enger of Hoboken-based Liberty Realty.
A site plan posted by the Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association shows that the 39,000 square foot building, designed by Hoboken-based Minervini Vandermark Architecture, will contain 15 two-bedroom units and five three-bedroom units. An electric car charging station and an elevator are also planned, as is a 16-space bike rack for residents.
Currently, the property contains a one-story industrial building and garage that has been used by companies like D’Elia Electric, Inc., which has since moved to East Rutherford, Bergen County. Built in 1925, it is owned by 366 6th Street, LLC of Jersey City, according to NJ Parcels data. It is surrounded by other industrial and commercial businesses, and A&M, an auto body shop, sits across the street.
Residents of the new building will be just a few yards away from a CitiBike station and the western end of the Harsimus Branch Embankment. Plus, Hamilton Park, McNair Academic High School, Mary Benson Park, Blackbird Gallery and Art Studio, and the Journal Square and Grove Street PATH Stations are all located within walking distance.
