RUC Holdings has proposed an eight-story, 55-unit mixed-use building at 342 Johnston Avenue, located on the corner of Whiton Street in the Bergen-Lafayette section of Jersey City. The project will also have ground-floor retail space and 13 off-street parking spaces. There will be 55 apartments, of which 15 percent, or eight units, would be set aside as affordable housing, Jersey Digs reported. It wasn’t disclosed if the market-rate apartments were rentals or condominiums. The corner site is occupied by a small, single-story commercial building. The city’s Planning Board must approve the project for it to proceed.

An anonymous Delaware-based LLC has filed paperwork to amend previously granted building permits to convert the two-story commercial warehouse at 151 West Side Avenue, in Jersey City, into a 119-unit residential building.

The project would also contain 118 off-street parking spaces. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment, which originally approved applications for a 116-unit conversion in the spring, must approve the changes. A hearing will be held on December 15.

The single apartment on the second floor would be joined by 13 additional apartments, presumably across the second through fourth floors. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment must approve the plans. A construction timeline has not been released.
