Shuttered Two-Story Venue To Be Redeveloped Into Four-Story, 40,000-Square-Foot Structure at 2 Chapel Avenue, Jersey City

The dilapidated, two-story venue building at 2 Chapel Avenue, in the Port Liberté community of southern Jersey City, is expected to renovated and expanded into a four-story, 40,000-square-foot structure. The previous venue was called The Pointe, but Landmark Developers will rebrand the project as the North River House, Jersey Digs reported. The redeveloped building will include a lobby, a lounge, a restaurant, and two banquet halls. In addition, there will be multiple bars throughout, landscaped gardens, patios attached to the restaurant, and cabanas. Work is expected to start soon and completion is scheduled for 2018.

Four-Story, 10-Unit Residential Project Filed at 157 Beach 96th Street, Seaside, Queens

An anonymous Queens-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 157 Beach 96th Street, in Seaside. That’s a neighborhood along the Rockaways in southern Queens. The project will measure 10,548 square feet and its residential units should average 987 square feet apiece, which means the units could either be rentals or condominiums. There will be a total of eight off-street parking spaces. Oscar M. Fuertes’s Bayside-based OMF Architecture is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. A two-story house occupied the site until July. The Beach 98th Street stop on the A train and Rockaway Park Shuttle is two blocks away.
