The Real Deal Tristate

Legal weed facility could come to Jersey City

Plans for a medical marijuana manufacturing facility are moving forward in Jersey City, according to JerseyDigs. An industrial park located at 1 Edward Hart Drive, which is across from a printing plant used by the New York Daily News, had initially been expected to be converted into a bowling alley and brewery. Instead, it’s now going green, albeit in a different manner than usual for industrial properties. JerseyDigs noted that a resolution from the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency will allow the proposed complex near Liberty State Park to “grow, cultivate, manufacture, process and dispense cannabis under a state license for medicinal uses.” The Real Deal reported last year on the potential ramifications for real estate should the widespread legalization of cannabis move forward in the Garden State. [JerseyDigs]
