JERSEY CITY | 180 Baldwin Avenue | FT | 25 X 2 FLOORS

Four residential buildings planned for old Jersey City pasta factory site

June 19, 2015



Quote:
JERSEY CITY — Four residential buildings, two of them 25-stories high, are slated for the old Mueller's pasta factory on Baldwin Avenue, another sign that the Downtown building boom is extending farther west.

The developer, Argent Ventures, wants to build 980 units on the 5.2-acre site, located less than half a mile from the Journal Square PATH station. The Mueller's site is largely vacant, aside from a four-story, 300,000-square-foot former manufacturing plant that will be demolished.

"The site represents the largest, 'shovel ready' development site in Journal Square and one of the prime development sites in Jersey City," the developer says on the project's website.

[...]

Argent is scheduled to go before the Planning Board on Tuesday night for site plan approval.

Councilman Rich Boggiano, who represents Ward C, where the property is located, has met with the developer and has given the plan his tentative approval. Boggiano noted that the two tall buildings proposed for the Mueller's site are "set back" from Baldwin Avenue so they don't tower over the small apartment buildings and residential homes across the street.

[...]

The Mueller's plant shuttered in 1997 when the company moved its operations to South Carolina, putting over 300 people out of work. At the time it was one of the largest losses of manufacturing jobs in Hudson County's history.

The Baldwin Avenue plant was built in 1915.

A solid development. More like this are bound to come as developers snatch up warehouses and dilapidated structures.

I'm a Jersey City resident and I really like this... in between the Beacon development on the old Jersey City Medical Center complex on the left of the map and what's happening at Journal Square now. Great fill in project and hope to see more like it!

The neighborhood is still somewhat dumpy, but those buildings that have been renovated are pretty nice. Not ideal location but some really good interiors.

The reviews lead me to believe the building itself is dumpy...

Depending on how much new supply we get, rents are going to fall hard and fast at the Beacon. Studios currently start at around $1,700 and there are issues ranging from management to the quality of the rehab (thin walls from what I hear.)

Journal Square will soon be home to new construction in a more desirable area.

Back to Baldwin, it's there is so much more information available on this, but I have not had the time to reach out to the developers. It really is an interesting project, and it doesn't require a change of zoning or the Journal Square redevelopment plan. It can be built as of right and the plans currently before the planning board are for site plan approval.
