Last November, Jersey Digs reported that Jersey City-based St. Paul’s Ave., LLC was planning to construct a new residential building 662 Summit Avenue and 165-169 St. Pauls Avenue, a property at the edge of The Heights in Ward C that stretches from the corner of Summit and Hoboken Avenues to an infill property up on St. Pauls Avenue.

The site was acquired by 165-169 St. Pauls Ave., LLC, which is registered out of an apartment building on the West Side, for $1 million last August, according to NJ Parcels. At the time, the developer was seeking approval for the building to be four stories tall, and for it to contain 21 residential units and 12 parking spaces.

However, after being adjourned for multiple meetings, on March 9th, the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment, which approves the vast majority of proposals that it hears, denied this project’s Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan.

Now, the company has new, but somewhat similar, plans for the property. According to a legal notice, the company is seeking to construct a four-story building with 14 residential units. Unlike last time, where only around 57% of the units would have come with a parking space, this proposal calls for one spot for each of the units. St. Pauls Ave., LLC has applied for Preliminary and Final Site Plan approval with variances for use and height.

The plan calls for the existing private parking lot to be removed and the building that previously contained the Trackside Motosport motorcycle repair and accessories business will be demolished.

Residents would be within walking distance of the Five Corners Branch of the Jersey City Free Public Library and the Journal Square PATH terminal and business district.
