A three-story Jersey City Heights commercial building could be converted into a residential development should a new proposal be approved.
Developer 63 Irving, LLC has filed an application calling for the renovation and reuse of 63-65 Irving Street into 13 residential units. Five parking spaces are planned for the building’s ground floor, according to the project’s principal points statement.
An ownership disclosure statement submitted to the City of Jersey City associated David
Kernkraut and David Lowy with 63 Irving, LLC. The company listed an address in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in the application, which also shows that three of the units would be studios, eight would include one bedroom, one would have two bedrooms, and one would contain three bedrooms.
No retail space is proposed and no “affordable housing units” would be created, according to the application, which also includes site plans from Hampton Hill Architecture.
Located a few blocks west of Washington Park, the property is situated between Summit Avenue and John F. Kennedy Boulevard. Signage on the facade of the building shows that the structure has been occupied over the years by companies such as The Alexander Group NJ, LLC and Werner Bros.
The Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hear this matter during its virtual meeting this Thursday, August 27 at 6:30 p.m. The developer is seeking Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval with a use variance.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment and other commissions are subject to change.
