Leasing is underway at BeLa, a new rental property at 74 Maple Street in the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood of Jersey City. Designed by Minno Wasko Architects and Planning and developed by Golden Glades Capital Management, the building represents mounting interest in areas surrounding the downtown metro center where rents have risen in step with the city’s growing skyline.
Clifton, N.J.-based BuildPro Construction is proposing a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use project at 712 Grand Street, located in Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette section. It will contain 500 square feet of commercial space and a 1,296-square-foot parking garage on the ground floor, followed by nine market-rate rental apartments on the floors above. A five-year tax exemption has already been granted by the city, Jersey Digs reported. A construction timeline has not been revealed at this time.
TriBeCa-based Opis Partners is planning to develop a seven-story, 20-unit residential building at 325 Pine Street, in the Bergen-Lafayette section of Jersey City. The project will feature rental apartments, ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, Jersey Digs reported. The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) selected Opis as the developer last August. In October, the city’s Planning Board approved the project, which required a height variance. The development site, spanning 323-325 Pine Street, consists of two three-story, multi-family townhouses. A construction timeline has not been revealed, although the first step would be to demolish the existing structures.
