The site of an upcoming development project in Jersey City could also be the location where a local liquor license is utilized.
A company called FG HIP LL 1, LLC is seeking to have a retail consumption license transferred to 89 Monitor Street in Bergen-Lafayette, according to a public notice that was issued in May. State business filings show that the firm was registered out of Jersey City in February.
The notice states that individuals associated with the ownership of FG HIP LL 1, LLC include Robert A. Caulfield, James F. Caulfield, Jr., Gregory S. Russo, William Rosato, Robert Karofsky, John Shoemaker, and Gregory Chase.
The liquor license in question has been held by Superfresh Group, Inc., but “is currently in pocket status and is not sited at a location,” according to the notice. Jersey Digs reported in 2019 that Superfresh Group, Inc., which reportedly did business as LITM, could have transferred their liquor license to a firm known as Newark Ave Pub Group, LLC.
The premises around 89 Monitor Street have been previously referred to by multiple addresses, including 95 Monitor Street and 282 Pine Street. A project with 114 residential units and three retail spaces is in the works for the property.
