In late October, the Union City planning board approved plans for a four-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 511-519 32nd Street, located in central Union City, in Hudson County, New Jersey. The project will feature four ground-floor commercial-retail units, in addition to 35 off-street parking spaces. Crest Point Development, which acquired the site a year ago for $1.425 million, is the developer, Jersey Digs reported.
