Four residential buildings planned for old Jersey City pasta factory site




June 19, 2015


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.

They have been removing the massive pile of ground up concrete for many months and will probably continue for a while.

Thanks towerpower. When was the first of those two pics taken? Because maybe once a week I stroll past this site during work hours, and it's been at least 5 or 6 months since I saw a worker on site.

The pictures were taken seconds apart from different holes in the fence.

Still a pile of rubble and not much further progress.

8 months later - this project has not moved at all. Not a good sign for the future Crescent Park as it's the same company - but it's always possible for things to get moving after a company sat on the plans for a while (eg Van Leer)

Nada. Seems like they are just land banking. There are several other projects moving in the area (though smaller) so the ability to build definitely exists.
