BAYONNE, NJ - A campaign promise by Mayor Jimmy Davis to bring flavored caffeine drinks in tall, grande, vente, and trenta sizes to his city is one step closer to reality.
“For years people have asked me if is there going to be a Starbucks in Bayonne,” Mayor Jimmy Davis has said previously.
According to a statement by RD Management and JMF Properties, the designated redevelopers of the 14-acre site located on the former Military Ocean Terminal, the popular stop for many American seeking their daily dose jolt of caffeine, will join Lidl, LA Fitness, CVS Pharmacy, and Posh Nails & Beauty Lounge at the Harbor View Martketplace.
“Once complete, Harbor View Marketplace and ScenicVue will serve as a premier destination for the residents and visitors of Bayonne looking to take a break from the city,” said Richard Birdoff, principal and president of RD Management. “We, alongside JMF Properties, are thrilled to welcome such a diverse mix of national tenants and believe this live-work-play development will fulfill the community’s lifestyle needs.”
The 240,780-square-foot Harbor View is anchored by Costco Wholesale, which opened in March, 2019 and includes an 18-pump Costco Gasoline gas station. The developers and city officials joined together in October to break ground on the land that will also include 651 multifamily residential units, with rooftop terraces and walking paths.
“This is a well-connected neighborhood with a fast-growing retail and residential presence, one that will certainly be enhanced by these five new retail tenants,” said Joseph Forgione, the founder and principal of JMF Properties. “Lidl, LA Fitness, CVS Pharmacy, Starbucks, and Posh Nails & Beauty Lounge comprise an excellent retail mix that will attract new shoppers to this community, and also serve as a convenient, walking-distance amenity for future rental residents and ferry commuters. Along with our partner, RD Management, we are happy to introduce these businesses to the Bayonne market and we look forward to the continued growth of this incredible waterfront property.”
The new businesses are all expected to open in the third quarter of this year.
