What they are changing is the height, from 2/3 story to 5.

A few things:

1) I wouldn't call a 5-story building a tower.

2) Owning and parking a vehicle is not essential to these new developments. There will be less and less emphasis on the car, which is how it should be. How many people do you know in downtown JC that drive on the regular? As Downtown gets more dense, the lack of parking will be (and already is) a deterrent to owning a car (see Manhattan and brownstone Brooklyn), and eventually the (ideal) effect is that more resources will be invested into our public transit systems.

3) JerseyAveGirl, where did you see the plans? Who is the developer, and are there any renderings yet?

Unfortunately, this city doesn't care about existing zoning laws. Just look at what happened in the Powerhouse Arts Disctrict. They will break the law for the highest bidder, despite the outcry from the local residents. In the end, your opinion doesn't mean a thing. Sucks.

There is a request to change the zoning of the old hardware store on Jersey Avenue that was recently demolished. The current zoning allows the developer only to build up on the current location of the shop, the request is to build up to 5 stories on the entire lot (including old loading doc). I currently do not believe we need another new tower, especially with no planned parking (none that i saw in the plan). If you have any other qualms please share or come to the meeting at 6:30 PM at City Hall int he Council Chambers.
