A two-story building in The Village in Downtown Jersey City that was long used for educational purposes could be expanded into a three-story building used for residential purposes.
Located at the corner of 1st Street, the Hudson Milestones Development Center property at 375 Monmouth Street is the focus of adaptive reuse plans from Tribeca-based Sutton Management Corp.
The plans, which were submitted to the Jersey City Zoning Board of Adjustment, call for adding an additional story to the existing building and developing a total of eight residential units, five of which would be duplexes with private terraces.
The project is illustrated in renderings from Hampton Hill Architecture that were released by Jersey City’s municipal government.
Two studios, three one-bedroom units, two two-bedroom units, one three-bedroom unit, bike storage, and a 442-square-foot “partial green roof” are envisioned, according to a principal points statement. Although four parking spaces are required for developments of this sort, none would be included in this project.
An ownership disclosure form identifies Michael Sutton as the owner of Sutton Management Corp. Hudson Milestones is still listed as the property owner, but Teresa Maietti, the CEO of the organization, signed an affidavit authorizing Sutton to make this application.
