As the LeFrak Organization faces resistance on one Jersey City project, it appears to be full steam ahead for another one just down the road.

The city’s planning board unanimously granted approval for the developer’s project at 30 Park Lane North, located within Newport’s Northeast Quadrant, Jersey Digs reported. The 387-unit building along the waterfront will stand 33 stories, reaching nearly 362 feet into the sky.

Apartments will range from studios to four-bedroom units. According to Jersey Digs, there will be no income-restricted units. The city is working on an inclusionary zoning ordinance. Such policies either incentivize or require a percentage of units in residential projects to be affordable.

The LeFrak development will include a 379-space parking garage, in addition to parking for 200 bicycles. Amenities will include a terrace with outdoor fitness equipment, fire pits, a grilling area and ping-pong tables.

There will also be ground-floor retail space. One 2,700-square-foot space will be a restaurant, while a 4,700-square-foot space will be designated for retail.

The building proposal adhered to the Newport Redevelopment Plan, meaning LeFrak didn’t require any variances. According to Jersey Digs, there is no groundbreaking date or timeline for the project.

Manhattan-based LeFrak is a frequent developer in Jersey City. The company recently finished The Beach, a luxury waterfront residential project east of its latest site. But the developer has also run into controversy in the area.

The organization’s plan to build 1,998 apartments on the Sixth Street Pier resulted in a nearby condominium board starting a petition asking local officials and the City Council to alter the five-tower project. Residents wanted the ambitious project scaled back.

Earlier this year, LeFrak bought the Marina Del Rey apartments in Miami Beach’s Normandy Isle for $24.5 million. The 108-unit complex was sold by the Finvarb family.
