Developers have secured preliminary approvals to build a 1,250 unit complex in Bayonne, New Jersey


The Bayonne Planning Board has granted preliminary approvals to developers to build what will be the largest mixed-use complex in the New Jersey waterfront city. Known as the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbour, the development will feature 1,250 residential units, 10,000 square feet of commercial space, parking for 788 vehicles, landscaped public parkland and a waterfront promenade.

The Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor project team includes real estate investment firm Boraie Development and local design studio NK Architects. Stonefield Engineering & Designs has been a civil engineer and landscape consultant.

The development site is located on a 12-acre stretch that juts out into Upper New York Bay, just south of Port Jersey. The land was formerly used as a military ocean terminal from 1967 to 1999. In more recent history, city officials have turned their attention to transforming the terminal grounds into a waterfront residential community. Bayonne’s Port Peninsula is the latest example of the city’s efforts to enrich underutilized parcels, 430 acres in total, with quality housing, commercial destinations and publicly accessible outdoor spaces.

Although no inauguration date has been announced, it is confirmed that the development will be completed in three phases.

The first phase of development includes a ten-story building along Goldsborough Drive with 274 residential units, a 12-story building to the north with 250 units, and a four-story car park designed to accommodate 269 vehicles. The parking garage will also support a rooftop amenity deck and swimming pool.

Phase two includes the construction of a five-story building with 150 units, a 12-story building with 267 units and 10,000 square feet of retail space. These structures are located to the east of the first phase.

The third and final phase will introduce a 16-story building with 309 units and a four-story parking lot with 232 spaces. Similar to the first phase, this garage will also support a rooftop terrace and swimming pool.
