Talking JERSEY CITY | 499-501 Summit Avenue | 556 FT | 53 FLOORS

Plans Submitted for Another 607-Unit Tower Near Journal Square



Quote:
One of Jersey City’s fastest-growing neighborhoods has yet another high-rise in the works as a huge parking lot has a planned renaissance that includes a mixed-use development with a new public plaza.


Just before Thanksgiving, an application was submitted that could bring new life to 499-501 Summit Avenue. Currently a surface parking facility adjacent to the Journal Square Transportation Center, the entirety of the property spans about an acre and backs up to trackage for the PATH trains built beneath the cliff.

The land has been owned since the mid-1990s by Pathside LLC, a subsidiary of Panepinto Properties. The latest proposal submitted by the company calls for a 53-story tower set to rise just over 556 feet that includes a base structure featuring 3,183 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

The plans call for 304 bicycle parking spaces in the building’s cellar plus a valet parking facility with room for up to 140 cars. The application mentions a 3,200-square-foot public plaza, landscaping work, and other streetscape improvements would be included in the plan, which was drawn up by HLW International.

The new tower would boast a total of 607 units that skew smaller under the current proposal, breaking down as 107 studios, 388 one-bedrooms, 100 two-bedrooms, and 12 three-bedroom spaces. The development’s approval would require the city’s planning board to grant a “c” variance, which should trigger Jersey City’s new inclusionary housing ordinance.

Based on that legislation and accounting for the qualifying tier of the project’s neighborhood, 10% of the development’s proposed units, or about 60, would need to be designated as affordable housing.

Panepinto Properties had previously gained approvals to redevelop the property back in September 2016, but those now-expired plans obviously never came to fruition. Renderings of the latest proposal for the land have not been released.

The possible tower falls within a busy area, as the Journal Squared complex is across the street in one direction and HAP Investments has a plan in place for HAP Tower in the other direction, which will add a new community center and park along Summit Avenue.

Jersey City’s Planning Board will need to sign off on the proposal for 499-501 Summit Avenue before any construction begins at the property. A date to hear the property’s application has not been set.

I'm assuming this doesn't fill out the lot more fully because of the rock formations?

Renderings Revealed as 499 Summit Avenue Heads to Jersey City’s Planning Board





Quote:
The area surrounding the Journal Square PATH station has seen significant high-rise construction over the past few years and another tower could soon add to the landscape if officials green light a new proposal.


The land is owned by Panepinto Properties, who previously gained now-expired approvals to develop the property back in 2016. The company is hoping their latest proposal comes to fruition and has hired New York-based HLW International to draw up the latest plans.

The new development would rise just over 556 feet at the tallest point, consisting of a smaller five-story base plus the high-rise tower. The potential project would include 304 bicycle parking spaces in the building’s cellar and a valet parking facility in the rear of the building to be accessed via Summit Avenue with vehicle lifts capable of storing up to 140 cars.

The ground floor of the project would feature 3,183 square feet of ground-floor retail space set to face Summit Avenue, which would be spruced up under the proposal. The development of the land would add a 3,200-square-foot public plaza adjacent to the roadway complete with landscaping work and other streetscape improvements.

499 Summit Avenue’s residential component totals 607 units that skew smaller under the current proposal, breaking down as 107 studios, 388 one-bedrooms, 100 two-bedrooms, and 12 three-bedroom spaces. The development’s approval would require the city’s planning board to grant several “c” variances but does not appear to trigger the newly enacted affordable housing ordinance, as affordable units at the project are listed as “n/a” on the application.

Proposed amenities at the development include a sixth-floor outdoor amenity area complete with separate indoor spa and lounge sections. A wraparound terrace on the 53rd floor spanning over 4,000-square feet would come complete with windscreens in addition to a 1,361-square foot indoor communal kitchen and a 1,337-square foot coworking lounge.

Is that the Burger King site? Nice! At one point they wanted to put like an 8 story office building there instead so this is a huge improvement

That's my guess too.

It's incredible how much the area has transformed. The zoning encouraged up to four floors of commercial space by having it not count towards the FAR cap. This is intended to bring more jobs to the core of Journal Square. Unfortunately, it did not look this developer wanted to take advantage of that provision. Maybe they need to further incentive it - add an office floor, get a floor of residential free

Affordable housing is also becoming an increasing problem. Inclusionary zoning change requiring affordable units in new developments is a start. I'm anxiously watching how it plays out.

Next up will probably be the KFC (Kennedy Fired Chicken) site.

Hopefully that fried chicken site is the next to be redeveloped. That block would be perfect for a soaring new residential tower.
