More Apartments Proposed

Three applications to be heard at the rescheduled Dec. 10 Planning Board meeting all involve new apartments. The meeting is 7:30 p.m. in City hall Library.

A notice published Friday includes the proposed conversion of third and fourth floors above a nightclub at 111  Front Street to six apartments. The bar and nightclub on the first and second floors will remain. See Plaintalker's post on Edison Garcia's proposal here.

At 210-214 West Front Street, an application dating back to 2013 involves a three-story mixed-use building with a restaurant and store on the ground floor and four apartments and an office unit above. The applicant wants to convert the office unit to an apartment.

At 1136 South Avenue, the applicant wants to build a two-story addition to a one-story liquor store along with a separate three-story addition at the rear of the building. The ground floor of the three-story addition would be used to expand the liquor store (Rick's Wine & Liquors) and the upper floors would become six two-bedroom apartments. Twenty-one surface parking spaces are proposed.

The Planning Board meeting had been originally scheduled for Dec. 3. The board will also consider on Dec. 10 Union County's application to install synthetic turf fields at Cedar Brook Park.



  1. No matter how anyone feels about additional apartment proposals the real question is capacity of infrastructure, sewer lines. water lines, and gas lines. Sewer lines have not been replaced in a very long time. Last night Park and Randolph had construction in street late into the night. Why?

  2. Water main leak, per City Nixle email.
