As reported by
Jersey Digs, visitors looking to stay overnight in JC may no longer have to head downtown or near the waterfront. Bergen-Lafayette could receive its first hotel if a proposal by Frank Cretella of Landmark Developers moves forward. Records from the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) show that the Morris Hotel is being proposed for 269 and 273 Communipaw Ave. If everything goes to plan, the building would feature 120 guest rooms and suites, parking, a restaurant, and a coffee shop.
The site in question borders both the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and a residential block, and is also located near the Liberty Science Center and Liberty State Park, two major tourist attractions. The proposal for the Morris Hotel still requires approval from New Jersey Transit and the Jersey City Planning Board. Should the application advance to those stages, the public would be able to weigh in on the proposal during public hearings held by both agencies. What do you think?
