When will people realize this is because NIMBY idiots that don’t understand a thing about economics keep railing against density and commercial space?

They're not in a historic preservation district, but in the Newark Ave Downtown Redevelopment Plan Zone (would have to look that up to see what you're allowed to do there)

They're on the Planning Board agenda for Aug 13. The agenda says "Multi-phase proposed project retains Newark Avenue and Barrow Street (partial) facades in accordance with bonus provisions of the redevelopment plan to construct a 7-story mixed use building with 51 residential dwelling units and 11,967 sf of retail space.
Deviations: Minimum Rooftop Amenity Space, Prohibited facade materials, Minimum floor to ceiling heights - upper floors, Minimum floor to ceiling heights - ground floor, Minimum building stepbacks, Maximum stories"

Sounds like they want to cram in a few more units than allowed. If you feel strongly about it, reach out to Matt Ward in City Planning or go to the Planning Board meeting.


Per this article, https://jerseydigs.com/barcade-propose ... ewark-avenue-jersey-city/ it sounds like they're going to preserve and reuse the historic facade for the front of the building and that dollar store being obliterated is no huge loss.

However, it seems like the overall retail footprint is going to be greatly reduced as I don't think the combined dance studio/Barcade/Dollar Store is anywhere close to 12k square feet.

The NAs will do their usual whining and grandstanding over the residential density and parking, completely ignoring the retail factor, per usual of course.

Agree. I came down with a nasty case of stomach flu the day after I ate there. The hours are reduced and the service has gotten much worse. Prices aren't even a bargain anymore either, you can get a much better burger at Left Bank or a better sandwich anywhere else for the same amount.

I heard the old funeral home on Brunswick St. is presenting new plans. 4 story mixed-use with 26 residential units and commercial space on the ground floor. There will be no parking. The hearing is next week.


Ho ho ho, this one is rich. The "Build Nothing, Nowhere, EVER" NIMBYs that run the VNA decided to sue the city for approviing this project that was originally going to provide because they didn't like one extra floor of units (that was going to be setback from the street anyway). The developer then decided to go the path of least resistance and build as-of-right, which to the horror of the parking NIMBYs in the neighborhood, included retail instead of parking.

So now half the neighborhood is up in arms at the self-appointed idiots that run the VNA because of this lack of parking. Hopefully this is the start of a NIMBY civil war in the VNA and they'll be too paralyzed to initiate their pointless lawsuits in the future.

People like the neighbor in this post and 135jc feel they're entitled enough to have their own private parking and that rules shouldn't apply to them, just like this POS here: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/n ... hg6s2k72he6nge-story.html

Now gotta find the idiota that encourage people to contact the PATH director on linkedin. Nope. It was the crisis created by the new development that forced the improvements. Not your DM.


It doesn’t matter what infrastructure actually gets built - the NAs have an endless reason to oppose any building or change in JC. Most likely they’ll go back to their old trope of complaining in about parking.

Most likely it will be taught in history classes, in the same vein as the civil rights era in the 60s. I bet Yvonne's parents were complaining about "the black agenda" back in the 60s, too.

Exactly - even if you're a nutjob like Yvonne who believes this "gay agenda" nonsense, almost everybody has a family member, friend, co-worker or acquaintance that's gay. We already teach about Islam in schools via comparative religion, the civil rights movement, etc.

To the surprise of nobody, the NA's aren't lifting a finger to inform homeowners in their areas about this, nor are they putting out any statements about it. If someone were attempting to build 1 more apartment or 1 less parking spot than the prescribed zoning, there'd be instant lawsuits, but they seem to be totally cool with their homeowners getting fucked over. I wonder what the mayor promised their board members to secure their silence.

Panel rejects request to demolish old St. Peter’s Prep buildings

Updated 11:11 AM; Today 10:47 AM (4/2/2019)
By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — A Jersey City panel on Monday declined a request by St. Peter’s Prep to demolish two York Street buildings it owns, handing a win to residents who opposed the demolition plan and setting up a potential battle over the future of two structures that date to the 19th Century.

The decision by the Historic Preservation Commission came at the tail end of a nearly five-hour hearing on the St. Peter’s request and caps a roughly yearlong effort by school officials to convince the city that the buildings are too dilapidated to be saved. The demolition hearing had been postponed numerous times before Monday.

https://www.nj.com/hudson/2019/04/pane ... eters-prep-buildings.html


Yet another humiliating defeat for Yvonne who fights against historic preservation and believed the lies St. Peter's told that this would become a parking lot.

It doesn't look so terrible to me. Much better looking than the garbage Yvonne is constantly pushing for, like Bayonne boxes. A lame NA/Yvonne attempt to stop development, she's only concerned about this because it's one of her last precious parking lots. Hopefully this one already received planning board approval so their only resort will be to sue.

https://jerseydigs.com/bright-varick-p ... -micro-units-jersey-city/

I'm shocked the VVPA allowed any retail to go in. They generally do everything they can to keep businesses out of the neighborhood.

So it looks like after 5+ years of lawsuits, the VVPA got a whopping 15 parking spaces and a tweaked facade, still out of character with the neighborhood. When you account for couples and families that move into traditional 1/2-bed units, you're going to have at least as many, if not more than 87 residents, the original proposed number of microunits. What did this group accomplish except waste taxpayer money?
