The Bayonne Town Planning Council has postponed a public hearing for a six-story residential building that a redeveloper is seeking to build at 219 West 5th Street.

According to counsel for counsel Richard Campisano, counsel has received a letter from counsel for the claimant requesting that the hearing be adjourned until February 8, 2022.

The applicant, Bayonne Luxury Waterwalk, LCC is seeking preliminary and final approval of the major site plan for the construction of a six-storey multi-family residential building of approximately 53,567 square feet. Comprised of 180 units, the building would also include a mezzanine, amenities, parking and a new section of the waterfront promenade along Newark Bay. The E-shaped building would have a varied facade of gray and beige materials and a number of amenities.

The first two floors of the project would include a parking garage covered by a garage, bicycle racks, garbage rooms, mechanical rooms, a mailbox and an electronic parcel room, storage spaces and an entrance hall. . The third floor across the mezzanine would include the residential units, an indoor pool with lounge area, amenity terraces and a gym.

Duplex units and many amenities

The units would be a combination of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units. There would be 14 studio units, 111 one-bedroom units and 55 two-bedroom units. The mix of units would also include a total of 49 duplex units consisting of one bedroom with mezzanine and two bedrooms with mezzanine.

The studios are reportedly ranging in size from approximately 587 square feet to 635 square feet, the one-bedroom apartments from 726 square feet to 837 square feet, and the two-bedroom apartments from 932 square feet to 1,116 square feet. One-bedroom duplexes would range in size from 737 square feet to 1,138, and two-bedroom duplexes from 1,177 square feet to 1,309.

The site plans to offer an “aesthetically pleasing” riverside walkway built by the developer for the use of outdoor public open spaces. In addition to a green roof, the plans provide for 256 parking spaces. The redeveloper is looking for a gap for less parking than the 426 spaces required.

The planned redevelopment is located directly south of the Bayview project which will consist of 797 residential units spread across one 12-story tower and two eight-story towers, with plans for another 12-story tower to be located adjacent to the Bayonne Luxury Waterwalk project. development.

Despite flooding in the neighborhood caused by Hurricane Sandy and, more recently, Hurricane Ida, redevelopment continues unabated in the area.
