Practically every week, it is revealed that another new development has been proposed for a Union City neighborhood. As the city’s population grows, this trend shows no sign of slowing down, despite the fact that it is already one of the world’s densest communities.


Whether it is the myriad of restaurants or the convenient location for public transportation users and motorists, it is clear that regional residents are heading for the hills and settling atop the Palisades in Union City.

The latest proposed development to be revealed is slated to be built at 3229 Bergenline Avenue, at the southwest corner of 34th Street, in the Center Core City District. According to a legal notice from the City of Union City, a mixed-use building is planned with commercial space on the first floor facing Bergenline Avenue and 30 residential units on the upper floors. In order to create the new building, the existing one-story structure on the premises will have to come down. It is currently occupied by the Dollar Smart discount store and previously contained locations of a business called ‘“Clothes” Outs!!’ and Rite Aid.

This site is located in the heart of Union City’s main business district along the Bergenline Avenue corridor and is within close walking distance of New Jersey Transit and jitney buses to communities across Northern New Jersey and Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal.

The developer, 3229 Bergenline Ave. Realty LLC, which is registered out of an office building on Washington Street in Hoboken, acquired the property for $2.325 million in April of this year, according to NJ Parcels records. The company is seeking site plan approval for the project with variances for lot area, depth, height, coverage, and parking.
