Did the re-development project on Cook street (near the County Courthouses) get cancelled?

Originally, it was going to be similar to the development on St. Pauls Ave & Oakland (same developer I think). The signs showing the planned development are gone and it looks like the land is being used for parking by the County.

Did the County take this property as part of the new planned court house?

This is the most recent I could find/last thing I saw about that area (yes, going to be a new courthouse):

Thanks Brewster!

Unfortunately I don't know anything more about the project than the little snippet from the email. Rendering in email was of rear of building, it looks like they will change rear facade to accommodate balconies/additional windows and add a story in the back half of the existing building. But as I said not really sure about extend of project, just my observation from rendering.

See below what I read about 520 Palisade in a recent email from the Riverview Neighborhood Association, there was also I meeting about the project but I was unable to attend. The email also had a rendering but don't know how to insert.

520 Palisade Ave - conversion of existing building to multi-use (old firehouse). The developer has revised the project to lower the height in the back (it's now about 10 feet higher than the existing structure) and added some parking spaces.


Welcome!!! You're that rare precious flower, a new member who's not obviously a shill, troll, or sock puppet.

For those of us who know nothing of the project, is this an additional proposed ground up structure you're talking about?

what's going on at 520 palisade, the site of the former tatak filip store


That's funny - I drove by today, saw the permit on the window and wondered the same thing. That place is an awesome property. It used to be a firehouse. There's a huge space on the bottom floor, a small, school-like gymnasium on the second floor and a (potentially) kick ass apartment that overlooks the skyline. I looked at the property a while ago but there was a remediation issue there if I remember correctly. The uses were amazing.

Anyone know what is being built on East side of JFK Blvd around Cliff (where the taxi place used to be)? Seems like a large bit of property that is being excavated.

I'm looking forward to this going up also but I REALLY hope they put in a restaurant with a liquor license. It would do so much for the area to have a nice place to go for brunch or something, right there. I heard that "The Oasis" has been, unofficially for sale for years now but is way too expensive. How great though, if it got a makeover, as well.

I've been watching the existing building come down - here is the proposed new development. Personally, I'm excited about seeing some change, even if I'm not crazy about the design. Seeing the historic cobblestone street restored will be great!

Broker can't be very serious about renting it if he can't be bothered to snap some pics with his phone.

Looks good...but that lack of foot traffic and lack of parking. Give a shout if you see anything more desirable.

I can't believe I missed that Dulce de Leche bakery opened on Central. I walked by at closing time last night and it looks beautiful. Their first one is way up in North Bergen and the 2 times I went it was packed and everything I tried was delicious. I may have to walk over for breakfast in a few hours!

This place is terrific ! A wonderful place for breakfast they have an array of croissants and other pastries. The place is laid out quite well and clean so clean it glistens. The décor is brightly lit in a very inviting wood tone. I've been there quite a few times already always packed seems to be the new go to place on Central Ave. in the Heights section.[/qu

Place is very good. !

It is fantastic and trumps any of the overpriced yuppie/hipster places in DTJC.

Let's keep it our little secret please.

I don't want to raise expectations for anyone who has not tried it yet but quality is an A, ambiance is an A, and prices are way less than places of similar quality. I had a sausage sandwich on fresh bread with some kind of delicious sauce with fries for like 6.99. I shared an egg sandwich on a croissant, some type of spinach mini quiche, a few empanadas and was very pleased.
I just may have to gain 20 lbs this winter!

i know several "sneakerheads" and they wear them. they treasure them and take insanely good care fo them. the resale scene for sneakers is huge and 200 is on the very low end for most collectable sneakers. its a crazy thing.

I just took an evening stroll through the heights and saw a Japanese place is opening on Central. A few of the existing restaurants had decent crowds so maybe a restaurant row is in the works. The new Noches de Columbia was packed all the way around at 930 as well as most times I have walked by and when I got food there Sunday at 4pm.

Sneaker Room grand opening closes part of Central Avenue

By Nancy Benecki-Hawkins | The Jersey Journal

Suraj Kaufman's dream to open a sneaker store started with an unexpected yet thoughtful gift.

A few months after his mother died in 2006, Kaufman said he received one Nike brand stock in the mail. A posthumous note from his mom came with the stock and said it was the one thing from the brand he would never wear out.

Kaufman asked his father for a loan to open his first store on Brunswick Street, which was a resale store with only 300 square feet.

Today, Kaufman celebrated the opening of his new flagship Sneaker Room store, which moved to 410 Central Ave.

I took off from work today and was walking around and noticed a gelato place is opening next to Pizza Masters (not sure if same owners as Pizza Masters). It also looks like the Wonder Bagels should not be far off from opening (and people were working on the apartments above WB). It could be a handsome brick building so nice to see it going from vacant blight to something useful.

The interviewee had several hundred pair, so I assume they are in a nitrogen filled vault at an undisclosed location.

It's funny, he talked about the desire to wear unique sneakers, which is clearly at odds with a collectibles value. I just don't understand, but then I'm a hoarder/packrat, not a collector.

Yeah it is amazing …I recall a pair of Kanye West Nike Air Yeezy 2’s selling for around $200 when released a few years ago. Now if you can find them they are around $5,000.

Nike Air Yeezy 2 - on Flight Club NYC

http://www.flightclub.com/nike-air-ye ... ck-black-solar-red-090138

Also it seems everything is done by lottery now. You sign up a week before a release giving your name, address, phone #, and size to get a ticket. If you are lucky you will get called to come in and buy a pair the day of the release. I guess it stops the camping out and problems.
