The group seeks to convert the industrial building in Jersey City into a vocational school
A building in Jersey City that was once an industrial center can become a center of education.
Team Walker, a nonprofit group based on Communipaw Avenue, is seeking to convert the building at 150 Pacific Avenue in Bergen-Lafayette into a vocational school.
Located across from Pacific Flea in the Canal Crossing redevelopment plan area, the property is slated to be “the future site of Team Walker’s premier vocational training program which will provide in-person training to Jersey City youth ages 16-24. years, “a statement of main points said.
“The proposed vocations will include automotive, culinary, carpentry, plumbing and electrical training programs,” the document adds.
The building in question is currently vacant, although it received new windows and other improvements a few years ago. Team Walker’s development app lists Eden Wood Realty, LLC of Parsippany as the owner of the plot while Devino Aiello and Associates is listed as the architect of the project.
In order to proceed with the adaptive reuse of 150 Pacific Avenue, Team Walker hopes the Jersey City Planning Board will grant the group preliminary and final approval of the site plan with a signage gap. A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, November 23 at 5:30 p.m., according to a public notice.
Note to readers: The dates on which applications are to be heard by the Jersey City Planning Board and other committees are subject to change.
