Bayonne has seen a plethora of major developments approved during recent years and the first phase of a sprawling project that will be the highest structure in Bayonne has officially been given the green light.
During a special meeting on February 22, Bayonne’s planning board approved the first phase of an endeavor dubbed NY Vue. The application for the development was submitted by Om Ganesh LLC, a subsidiary of Roselle Park-based Ramani Group.
Situated at the intersection of Chosin Few Way and 40th Street next to a fire station across the street from Costco, the large vacant parcel totals 155,000 square feet. Designer Jorge Mastropietro Architects Atelier has drawn up what they call “an iconic building that emphasizes the corner as entry to the new redevelopment area.”
Set to be the initial portion of a much larger plan, the tower section of NY Vue will rise 26 floors and 286 feet at the tallest point. A shorter six-story base is featured at the project, which will include a total of 281 residential units.
The apartments at the complex are slated to break down as 48 studios, 135 one-bedrooms, 56 two-bedrooms and 42 three-bedroom units. Three separate retail spaces are to be featured on the ground floor of the development facing 40th Street, which will include a public plaza to act as a buffer with the roadway.
565 parking spaces will be included in the base component, which represents a significant excess over the required 308 spots. The garage will double as a seventh-floor amenity space set to feature both indoor and outdoor components, which will connect through an operable glass wall and pergola areas.
Perks for residents at the future development are plentiful and include a pool, golf simulator room, screening room, game room, lounge, gym, business center, spa, dog park, basketball court, kitchen and bar, yoga lawn, a walking track, and a sunbathing lawn.
Besides the seventh-floor terrace, the tower portion will include a roof deck featuring Hudson River views set against a chef’s kitchen plus a game and lounge area.
The retail area of NY Vue will feature a glass façade, and a curtain wall will be utilized on the floors facing the lower terrace. Bronze metallic panels and aluminum windows make up the bulk of the exterior at the project, which was granted variances by the planning related to landscaping requirements and for an additional 10 feet in height.
Ramini Group says they hope to break ground on the project later this year during the summer months. The company has big plans for the site, as the entirety of their NY Vue complex involves six mixed-use high-rise towers alongside additional garage parking.
