With Park Francis recently completed and retail in the building like Rumba Cubana set to open soon, Jersey City-based developer Silverman appears to have set their sights on a nearby parking garage they own, which could be replaced by another mixed-use property.
The latest from the company keeps them in Hamilton Park, where they built several of their most prominent projects. Jersey Digs received plans that Silverman has drawn up for 170 Erie Street, which has been owned by the company since 2006 under the legal name 9th Street Urban Renewal LLC.
Designed by Studio V Architecture, the development features a design that tiers inward and will utilize a gray brick veneer wall on most of its exterior. Balconies with glass wall components are included on higher level floors, while two retail storefronts, one of 5,200 square feet and the other of 3,800 square feet, will sport large floor-to-ceiling windows and be entered into from the Erie Street side of the property.
The 10-story project is truly mixed-use; beyond the retail, a 50-car parking facility featuring a triple-stack system will be constructed on the first and second floors of the building. The entirety of the third and fourth floors, which each run 20,518 square feet, will be designated as office space, and both will include a rear-facing terrace area.
The next five stories of 170 Erie Street’s upper floors will contain the building’s 59 residential housing units, while the 10th and top floors will feature amenity space that includes a roof deck, lounge, business center, media room, bar, gym, and a multi-purpose space.
Silverman’s path forward for the project isn’t exactly clear; documents obtained by Jersey Digs regarding the development are dated from late June and early July and as a “board presentation.” However, it appears no approved plan exists for the site yet in terms of the city’s boards, so the company may very well be seeking approvals in the future.
The news of 170 Erie Street’s plans comes at a time when Silverman is set to break ground on their first proper 41-story high-rise at 331 Marin Boulevard, which saw the demolition and clearing of the site commence earlier this summer.
