Bayonne Mayor Jimmy Davis explains the city’s major transformation


From a new outpatient health center to luxury housing, the city of Bayonne is undergoing a major revitalization.  A variety of projects are planned for the former military ocean terminal ranging from residential units to office space. There’s even talk of a possible hotel in an effort to draw revenue from tourists who use the Cape Liberty Cruise Port.

Over at 46th Street and Broadway demolition work has begun with plans to put up a controversial 10-story mixed-used project. A 70-unit apartment building is also in the works for the city’s 22nd Street Light Rail station.

And that’s not all. The three-story outpatient facility known as Barnabas Health at Bayonne is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017. Located on Broadway between 23rd and 24th streets, it will include a 24/7 satellite emergency center, radiology, primary care offices and other medical services. Over 300 parking spaces will also be provided.

At the southwest end of the city, the former Texaco site will one day be known as The Promenade at Bayonne. The project includes plans for parks, a marina center, condominiums, market-rate rentals and much more.
