A new residential building was proposed earlier this year for 662-666 Avenue C in Bayonne, between West 29th Street and West 30th Street, according to a legal notice. Under Bayonne-based developer 662 Avenue C Urban Renewal, LLC’s proposal, the building is slated to be 5.5 stories tall, and will contain 33 residential units. It is not clear if on-site parking will be provided for residents of the complex.
According to a city ordinance, the project requires the construction of storm water piping and related stormwater facilities, and that “the City wishes to convey an easement to (the) Redeveloper to permit the construction of the Storm Water Retention Facilities over, under and across the City’s Property for the installation, maintenance, repair, replacement and operation of the Storm Water Retention Facilities”.
For several years, the tract, surrounded by a fence, has sat vacant in the middle of a residential neighborhood. The property was acquired by 662 Avenue C Urban Renewal, LLC for $150,000 in 2013, according to NJ Parcels.
When completed, residents of the building will be within walking distance of public transportation, shopping, and services. The 34th Street Station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is a fifteen-minute walk away from the property, and the area is served by NJ Transit buses to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Downtown Manhattan, and Jersey City’s Exchange Place. The Broadway business district one block away is lined with dozens of shops and restaurants, and a ShopRite supermarket, Francis G. Fitzpatrick Park, Bayonne City Hall and the Bayonne Public Library are also located within a few blocks of the development site along the Avenue C corridor.
The proposal was approved by the City of Bayonne Planning Board at its meeting in October.
