Officials in Jersey City have approved tax abatements for three mixed-use buildings by a private developer at New Jersey City University’s main campus, a published report said Thursday.
The report, by The Jersey Journal, said the 30-year tax breaks will support nearly $85 million worth of development on the city’s west side, part of a broader master plan to grow NJCU’s western campus. The plans by PRC Group call for 301 market-rate apartments and nearly 12,000 square feet of retail space between Route 440 and West Side Ave.
Thursday’s story said the Jersey City council approved each abatement by a 5-1-2 vote.
PRC Group is leasing the land from the public university, allowing the school to fund other facilities such as an academic building without raising tuition, the report said. The campus has also attracted other developers — a venture of The Hampshire Cos., Claremont Cos. and Circle Squared Alternative Investments — which broke ground on their own mixed-used building in September.
