BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - The Bayonne Planning Board has unanimously approved a plan for what will be the northern New Jersey city’s tallest building.

The Jersey Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1P8pUtd ) the 22-story, 244-foot mixed-use tower will be erected on a 1.9-acre vacant lot on North Street by developer Lance Lucarelli. The site was formerly a Pagano’s supermarket.

The proposal calls for 3,900 square-feet of ground level retail, a parking garage and 170 residential units for rent.

City spokesman Joe Ryan says the development is part of the Eight Street Rehabilitation Project, which was approved earlier this year.

First Ward Councilman Tommy Cotter says Bayonne hasn’t done any real development in years.



Ryan expects the project to be completed in 2018.

The current tallest building in Bayonne is a 13-story condominium complex on Kennedy Boulevard.
