A handful of minor changes are in the works for a new development that is being built in Jersey City near the Hoboken city limits.

The Jersey City Planning Board is scheduled to hear an application for Amended Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approval during a meeting over Zoom on Tuesday, June 9 at 5:30 p.m., according to a legal notice. The application pertains to The Wave, a complex with five-story, 12-story, and 24-story components at 150 River Drive in Newport.

The proposed modifications by Wave Property, LLC include a reduction in the number of residential units from 338 to 336, “an expanded amenities lounge inside the building,” the addition of an outdoor swimming pool, and architectural adjustments, according to the notice. The plan includes 13,122 square feet of retail or commercial space, according to the general development application, but does not call for any “affordable housing units.”

Renderings from HLW International illustrate changes to the overall design of The Wave, while plans that were issued by Melillo + Bauer Associates on May 29 highlight the visioning for the project’s grade level and sixth-floor rooftop landscaping.

Jersey Digs first reported in 2018 that the project involving LeFrak at this location was being branded as “The Wave.” The development at Newport’s Northeast Quadrant has also been referred to as “The Beach.”

This hearing comes just a few days after a concept involving nearly 2,000 residential units at another location in Newport was revealed.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Jersey City Planning Board are subject to change.
