A development with nearly a dozen residential units might be constructed along a narrow block in the North Ward of Newark.
During its next virtual meeting today, Monday, August 2, the Newark Central Planning Board is expected to hear an application involving a proposed five-story building at 60-62 Woodside Place, a somewhat off-the-beaten-path property that is situated a few blocks west of Broadway.
A firm with a listed address in Scotch Plains, Union County submitted an application to the City of Newark that calls for bringing 11 units and 11 parking spaces to the site, which is described as vacant land.
City tax filings currently list Michael Carson as the owner of the tract. However, the application’s affidavit of ownership says that Manuel Rosa owns the premises and is a managing member of 56-62 Woodside Pl, LLC, the company that submitted the application.
Site plans from CREARC, LLC that were released by Newark’s municipal government indicate that the building would be nearly 58 feet tall and contain seven units with two bedrooms each and four units with one bedroom each. A balcony is also planned.
The Newark Central Planning Board’s August 2 meeting is scheduled to begin over Zoom at 6:00 p.m. Preliminary and final site plan approval along with several variances are being sought.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Newark Central Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
