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.
Great Neck, N.Y.-based TCX Development has filed applications for a 10-story, 18-unit mixed-use building at 148-12 Archer Avenue, in downtown Jamaica. The project will measure 16,600 square feet and will rise 102 feet to its roof. There will be 1,492 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units across the second through 10th floors. The apartments should average 667 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Juan C. DeFonseca’s Great Neck-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a single-story warehouse. Demolition permits were filed in August.

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. The 21,500-square-foot property is currently occupied by a small, single-story bank. A construction timeline has not been revealed.
