Plans filed for property on 391 Madison Avenue call for the construction of a three-story, 14 unit multiple dwelling with parking under the building. Because the land is currently zoned for residential use, the applicant is requesting variances from the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
The applicant, Alex and Sons Real Estate Investments, is seeking a use-variance to construct Madison Gardens--14 one and two bedroom multiple dwellings where a one-family dwelling is the permitted use. Additionally, variances for building height, building coverage and front yard are needed.
- The applicant is proposing a height of 38.65ft where 30ft height is permitted.
- The applicant is proposing a three-story building where two-and-a half stories are permitted.
- Applicant is proposing building coverage of 21 percent where 18 percent is permitted.
- Applicant is proposing 46.625ft where 55ft from the center line of street is permitted.
The three-story, 14-units proposed will consist of four one-bedroom apartments and 10 two-bedroom apartments.
There will be underground parking for 28 spaces.
The property, a portion of which contains wetlands that the plans reflect will be protected according to DEP guidelines, lies adjacent to the Institute for Educational Achievement School for children on the autistic spectrum.
The first hearing of this application by the Zoning Board was scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 12.
