Ground has broken at 39 New York Avenue, in Jersey City, for a new multi-family residential property.

39 New York Avenue
The Hoboken Brownstone Company is proposing to build a four-story, 155-unit residential building at 39 New York Avenue, in the Jersey City area known as The Heights. A rendering of the project — being designed by Matawan, N.J.-based Chester, Ploussas, Lisowsky Partnership — has been revealed by Jersey Digs. The residential units will be rental apartments and a parking garage will be located in the cellar. Plans for the building are expected to go before the Jersey City Planning Board in the fall, although community meetings are already ongoing. No variances are required at this time, but an environmental remediation is currently underway at the site and is expected to wrap up in early 2017. The developer and government officials have also discussed plans to turn the adjacent county-owned property along New York Avenue into a public park. The 2nd Street stop on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is located three blocks away.
