Carteret officials announced that the Borough will soon be home to another mixed-use building with luxury apartments and 1,595 square feet of medical space.Real EstateThe Honorable Mayor Daniel J. Reiman stated plans recently were approved for Pershing Estates Urban Renewal to demolish the four existing dwellings at 235 to 243 Pershing Ave., consolidate the lots into one, and construct five stories above the retail ground floor with 35 one-bedroom and 43 two-bedroom units.

“The rooftop amenities and views of Pershing Estates are going to be gorgeous, much like The Botanic before it,” Mayor Reiman said

“Carteret is booming with progress, rebuilding block by block. Here is another fine example.”

According to officials, Pershing Estates will be located at 237 Pershing Ave., across the street from Borough Hall and the Community Center and next to Noe Street Park.

Plans call for a rooftop terrace with potted plants, tables, chairs, and fire pits. Indoor amenities also will be available, as well as a parking garage. Between the parking lot and garage, 95 spots will be constructed, officials say. 

From the apartment building’s parking lot, officials said, traffic will be restricted to make a right only onto Blanchard Street, where on-street parking will be available.

Authorities say due to an expected increase in pedestrian traffic, Pershing Estates Urban Renewal is required to install raised crosswalks and stop signs at two locations on Pershing Avenue.

A handicapped accessible ramp also must be installed at the corner of Pershing and Blachard, according to public documents.

Updates about Pershing Estates will be available at or by following @MyCarteret on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, officials said.
