Although the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted some development projects in and around Jersey City over the last year, proposals have continued to be filed for new buildings. Now, a public hearing has been scheduled regarding an application that was submitted in October 2020 for a development on a side street between Summit and Baldwin avenues.
The six-story building could be constructed where two houses currently stand at 30 and 32 Vroom Street. Sunil Patel is seeking to “clear the property” in order to construct a project that would include 30 residential units, according to a notice.
A meeting agenda confirms that the hearing for preliminary and final major site plan approval is expected to take place during the Jersey City Planning Board’s Zoom meeting today, Tuesday, May 18, at 5:30 p.m.
The application states that four residential units would be demolished as part of the project, which would ultimately create 29 one-bedroom units and one two-bedroom unit, with none listed as “affordable housing units.”
Municipal tax records identify Sunil Patel as the owner of 32 Vroom Street, but Sunilkuma and Manisha Patel are listed as the owners of 30 Vroom Street. The two houses are sandwiched between residential buildings, one of which has long stood on the block while the other was just constructed.
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.
