Over the last year, a number of developments have been proposed for properties located along Martin Luther King Drive in Jersey City.

These plans have ranged from two buildings with a total of 74 units at the southern end of the block to the mixed-use “Verge” complex at the northern end, with several other proposed complexes in between.

Now, another building is envisioned for the MLK Drive corridor.

A five-story development is being proposed by 241 MLK Drive, LLC for the eponymous property between Wilkinson and Bayview avenues near New Jersey City University, according to a notice of hearing. The developer is planning 18 residential units and 645 square feet of retail space on the premises, which have long sat undeveloped next to a church and a three-story building.

In order to proceed with this project in the Jackson Hill Redevelopment Plan Area, 241 MLK Drive, LLC is reportedly looking to receive preliminary and final major site plan approval from the Jersey City Planning Board.

The notice says that the board is scheduled to hear the company’s intentions for the parcel during its virtual meeting on Tuesday, August 10, but the meeting agenda does not mention this development.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
