HACKENSACK — City officials have given final approval for construction of a 14-story residential and retail building on Main Street, which they say will spur redevelopment and help transform the downtown into a modern center for living, shopping and entertainment.
The Planning Board approved the application on Wednesday for the construction of the 382-apartment building at 150-170 Main St., which will have 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retailing. The building is to feature a mix of studios and one- and two-bedroom units and amenities such as a pool and a rooftop garden.
“This is a great application for the town,” said zoning officer Al Borrelli. “It’s a real catalyst for redevelopment and for the city of Hackensack and for Main Street.”
Mark Semeraro, the attorney for the developer, said the project would be a cornerstone for the area.
