The Jersey City Planning Board recently approved plans for a nine-story, 99-unit mixed-use building at 136 Summit Avenue, located on the corner of Fairmount Avenue in Jersey City’s McGinley Square section. The project will include 2,240 square feet of retail space and a 75-car parking garage. Monticello Equities is the developer and Kushner Studios is behind the architecture. The site is currently occupied by a three-story medical building. A construction timeline has not been disclosed, Jersey Digs reported.
An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 48-unit mixed-use building at 4511 Eighth Avenue, located on the corner of 46th Street in Sunset Park.

The ground floor will host a 12,648-square-foot supermarket and the second floor will feature a 12,995-square-foot children’s daycare facility. The residential units, on the third through sixth floors, should average 778 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments.
