Luxury-minded development is starting to become more prominent in the Peninsula City and a new project along a major retail artery could be given approvals later this week.
Last year, local property owners Allan and Joanne McLeod submitted an application to redevelop several parcels they own at the intersection of Broadway and 12th Street. The official addresses of the four lots they will combine for the project are 282-284 Broadway, 286-288 Broadway, 9-13 Herrick Court, and 9-15 East 12th Street.
The plots are one block north of a QuickChek market and are currently home to several industrial buildings and a parking lot. The land falls within Bayonne’s Newark Glass Site Redevelopment Plan.
Everything currently at the properties would be demolished under the proposed scheme and replaced with a 10-story mixed-use building that includes 151 residential apartment units. Approximately 1,772 square feet of ground-floor retail space would be featured at the development, which includes 169 off-street parking spaces. It’s unclear if the project is planned as condos or rentals.
Allan and Joanne McLeod are seeking Major Site Plan approval from Bayonne’s planning board and are requesting a bulk variance for maximum building height. The application is scheduled to be heard by the board during their January 14 meeting, which starts at 6:00 p.m. and takes place inside the Municipal Council Chambers at 630 Avenue C.
