HAPPENINGS IN BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY

Bayonne is a working-class city in Hudson County, New Jersey. It is bordered by the Kill Van Kull to the South, Newark Bay to the West, and New York Bay to the East. Being an urban settlement, you have the benefit of a mix of the social, wild life of New York City due to its proximity and also the pleasure of a calm, quiet environment. Moderately populated with a thriving economy, the city is also known for its low crime rate, diversity in race, and ultra-modern housing style.

Infrastructure and building designs have developed over the years as lots of investors have their eyes on the area. Recently, there have been meetings to reach an agreement with developers of the former Military Ocean Terminal at Bayonne (MOTBY) to construct a massive complex near the corner of Chosin Few Way and Goldsborough Drive. This plan includes seven buildings, 1,500 ft2 of retail space with about 1,600 units. Four 25-storeyed buildings with 260 apartments each, and three 12-storeyed buildings – one containing 222 apartments, one 180 and the last building will house 147 apartments. The apartments will be of five types, named after provinces in Manhattan based on their room sizes – The Chelsea (the least), the Soho, The Bryant, the Flatiron, and the Central (the largest).

Mahalaxmi Bayonne Urban Renewal, LLC started with the construction of a 97-unit multipurpose building but has extended their plan to the construction of a 4,500-unit complex, a hotel with 218 rooms along with 80,906 ft2 of retail space and a 1,080-unit development in the Harbor Station South Redevelopment Plan Area. The City Council has approved tax exemptions for the 1,080-units and MOTBY developments to encourage further redevelopment of the abandoned properties.

Developers have taken to redevelopment of 14 acres of MOTBY located towards east of Route 440 close to 34th street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station. This redevelopment plan involves conversion of part of the property into 651 residential units for rent split into two components, each consisting of five-storey tall buildings, 25,000 ft2 of lifestyle amenities and a rooftop pool. There is also the Harbor View Marketplace Project for development of a 150,000 ft2 shopping centre and a gas station. A pedestrian bridge will also be constructed to connect this shopping complex with the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail station.  Also approved is the renovation of the Burnett Electric located close to the 45th ST Light Rail station, to a residential building consisting of twelve one-bedroom units and eight two-bedroom units.
