Late last month, the Jersey City Planning Board approved Amerestate Holdings’s plans for three new mixed-use buildings, ranging from three to eight stories in height, at 1072 West Side Avenue and 1075 West Side Avenue, located along Broadway in the Marion section of Jersey City. Approval was also granted to combine the development assemblage into a single property, Jersey Digs reported. Across the entire project, dubbed Avenir, 486 residential units are planned in addition to 25,452 square feet of retail space. The stretch of West Side Avenue between Broadway and Fayette Avenue will be de-mapped and transformed into a public plaza. Amenities include a 384-car parking garage and rooftop terraces. The single-story building that was once home to Puccini’s Restaurant, a single-story former textile factory, and a four-story apartment building must first be demolished. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is behind the design. The Journal Square PATH station is located eight blocks away.
Property owner Chris Reno, doing business as an anonymous Staten Island-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 148 McClean Avenue, in Arrochar. That’s located along Staten Island’s East Shore. The project will measure 4,840 square feet. It will feature 1,425 square feet of commercial-office space on the ground and cellar levels, followed by full-floor residential units on the two floors above. The apartments should average 959 square feet apiece. The project will come with three off-street parking spaces. Joseph Loccisano’s Staten Island-based Sanna & Loccisano Architects is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot property is currently vacant.

Brooklyn-based Marcal Group is planning to develop four mixed-use buildings – each rising nine stories in height – on an assemblage of development sites located between Beach 115th and 117th streets, in Rockaway Park. That’s a neighborhood along the Rockaways in southern Queens. Dubbed Seaport Landing, the entire project will encompass 240,000 square feet of residential space and 23,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, the Rockaway Times reported. The total number of apartments, all condominiums, wasn’t disclosed, but at least 158 of them will be sold at affordable rates to seniors. The building at 157 Beach 115th Street will contain 58 affordable units and the one at 160 Beach 117th Street will contain 100 affordable units. The two facing Beach 116th Street will be market-rate buildings. Most of the assembled properties are vacant with the exception of 129 Beach 116th Street, which is currently occupied by a single-story commercial building, acquired in 2015 for $5 million. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. The Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street stop on the A train and Rockaway Park Shuttle is two blocks away.
Manhattan-based Hugo Neu Corporation has tasked design and engineering firms STUDIOS Architecture and WXY to convert the 130-acre, two-million-square-foot Kearny Point Industrial Park, in Kearny, into a modernized, mixed-use commercial campus. The industrial park is located in the town’s southern section sandwiched between Jersey City and Newark, in Hudson County, New Jersey. The plan is to preserve the existing industrial buildings and warehouses, many of which are historic, Real Estate Weekly reported. The conversion is expected to attract a wide variety of tenants, including businesses in need of office, manufacturing, storage, and/or industrial space, among others. The site was previously known as the Federal Shipbuilding & Drydock Company and served as the U.S. Navy’s fastest ship-building location in the world during World War II.
