They are not. Building around,and above. Barcade will be situated in the back. But, I must say,leases don't seem to matter much.I guess they will be offered a package.

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.


Believe it or not - people that live in an area given no consideration for density impacts like infrastructure or PATH crowds do tend to have opinions.

That must be hard to imagine being a hardcore developer shrill
