Union City, N.J.-based RJS Central has proposed to redevelop the two-story mixed-use building at 402 Central Avenue, located in The Heights section of Jersey City, into a four-story, 14-unit mixed-use structure. The existing ground-floor retail space, currently vacant, would be retained and receive a renovation of its own, Jersey Digs reported. 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.
Construction is now underway on the seventh floor of the 12-story, 123-unit mixed-use building under development at 15 Lafayette Avenue, located on the corner of Ashland Place in Downtown Brooklyn. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits state the project will measure 120,093 square feet and rise 138 feet to its main roof, not including the bulkhead.
