BAYONNE, NJ - Just a little more than a month after Mitch Burakovsky cut the ribbon on his Skye Lofts South project the prominent developer was again joined by local leaders, including Mayor Jimmy Davis, to break ground on his next project.

Over the course of the next two years, Burakovsky told TAPinto Bayonne, Skye Lofts North will rise, bringing the same luxury living and amenities its recently opened neighbor is delivering.

Asked about the status of leasing in Bayonne’s newest entrant into the housing market Burakovsky said that they “are right on track.”

The new project will contain 98 units, eight more than the first one, and also boast the same open floor plans, 10-foot ceilings, hardwood plank flooring, custom kitchens, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and much more. Another community room will be added and the roof will host a terrace for outside entertainment or lounging. 

“Five years ago we saw Bayonne turning a corner,” Burakovsky said. “We are at that point now,” something, at the previous ribbon cutting, he gave Davis and his City Hall team credit for.

“This is what progress in Bayonne looks like,” Davis said minutes after donning a ceremonial helmet. Offering a reminder that the site, once home to Bayonne Plumbing, has stood dormant for over a decade, the mayor, who has presided over dozens of similar events during his tenure, referred to a previous comments when he said that “this is a trend we plan on continuing, staying on course for a Bayonne that is better than ever.”
