Mayor Jimmy Davis Announces Sale of Bayonne Bay West

Administration - 4/28/2017 1:41:00 PM

Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis today announced the sale of approximately 30 acres of the former Military Ocean Terminal (“MOTBY”) to Atlantic Realty of Woodbridge. Atlantic Realty was designated the developer in 2006 under Mayor Doria. The plan calls for construction of 525 residential units, park space, new roads and addition to the Hudson River Walkway. The Project has long been delayed by lawsuits that were finally settled in the spring of 2015 under Mayor Davis. According to the Developer, Jack Halpern, they hope to be under construction by the fall or early spring of 2018 at the latest.

Mayor Davis stated, “This is a long awaited event in the development of MOTBY and for the future direction of Bayonne. The actual transfer of land to a developer is the result of many hours spent by my administration in removing the obstacles to development that have long prevented Bayonne from realizing the potential of this land.” Council President Sharon Ashe Nadrowski indicated, “After sixteen years it’s time to deliver on the promises that were made long ago and begin building for our future. I am just happy that I could be a part of making this a reality and look forward to the other developments that are also scheduled to take place on MOTBY and throughout town.”

Bayonne Bay West is a small part of the overall plan for development at MOTBY. In addition to this development, the City expects Fidelco to begin construction shortly on 200 residential units at Harbor Station South and for JMF Development to initiate construction of substantial retail space at Harbor Station North.

Mayor Davis noted, “Although this is a major development, it is part of an overall plan to redevelop the city. Bayonne is beginning to see the early signs of growth, with projects under way near the 22nd street light rail station and on Broadway. Saint Barnabas is scheduled to be completed by July of 2017 and other developments are being planned for long abandoned empty lots and the expansion of South Cove Commons is on the horizon.

Polish Constitution Day

AAA - 4/26/2017 7:01:00 PM

 
The City of Bayonne Will Celebrate Polish Constitution Day on May 3rd with Ceremony, Dinner, and Polka Concert
 
Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne will observe Polish Constitution Day on Wednesday, May 3, with a ceremony, a dinner, and a polka concert.  Two-hundred-and-twenty-six years ago, Poland adopted the first written constitution in Europe, and enacted it on May 3, 1791. The Polish “Third of May” Constitution enshrined religious toleration at a time when that was rare in the world.  Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne is proud to join with our Polish-American community to celebrate this great achievement of the Polish nation.  We welcome everyone in the community to join in remembering the Polish Constitution of 1791, a highlight in the history of freedom in the world.”
 
The day’s events on May 3 will begin with a Polish flag-raising ceremony at City Hall at 5:15 p.m.  The celebration will continue with a dinner and polka concert at the Polish-American Home at 27 West 22nd Street from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  The dinner will feature a Polish menu catered by Alex and Terry’s Deli. The $25 admission charge will cover the costs of dinner, drinks, dessert, and a concert by the Polka Brothers, a New York-based band that has appeared on The Chew and other nationally televised programs.  The Polka Brothers’ concerts bring together polka favorites, pop and rock gone polka, and original tunes.
 
To reserve your place at the dinner/concert event, please visit beof.org, or call Samantha Rojas at the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF) at 201-437-7222.
