Morris County, N.J.-based K.D. Properties is planning to develop a six-story, 25-unit residential project at 469 Newark Avenue, located on the corner of Waldo Avenue in the Journal Square section of Jersey City.

The Jersey City Board of Adjustments originally approved the project back in 2008, although it only recently received a tax exemption that will expire within five years. The site, which traded hands for $800,000 in 2015, is currently vacant. Construction is expected to be complete by early 2018.
