via JerseyDigs.com – A significant step forward was announced yesterday for the redevelopment of Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne. Development partners RD Management LLC and JMF Properties officially broke ground on Harbor Pointe Marketplace and announced a lease deal with Costco Wholesale to anchor the new retail center.

Located along State Route 440 and directly across from the 34th Street Light Rail Station, the site has long been ripe for development. But after years of false starts, its next chapter is finally being written. Harbor Pointe Marketplace is the first part of what will eventually become a lively residential and commercial center with plans for 651 multifamily residential units, walking paths, and 92,000 square feet of additional retail space.

In this first phase, RD Management LLC and JMF Properties are constructing a 240,000-square-foot retail center. Costco is slated to take 150,000 square feet of the new building along with an 18-pump Costco Gasoline gas station. Shoppers will also benefit from a reduced sales tax rate as it’s located in an Urban Enterprise Zone. The companies are targeting a fall 2018 opening. FULL STORY

CURE BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION LAUNCHES “THINK PINK” TEXT-TO-DONATE CAMPAIGN FOR MOTHER’S DAY 2018

Mother's Day Text to Donate

The Cure Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is providing yet another easy way to Think Pink this Mother’s Day with the launch of a text-to-donate campaign that will raise important funds and advance innovative research that could dramatically change the treatment for breast cancer in the years to come.

Starting on Wednesday, May 9th, 2018, CBCF will accept mobile donations in a “Text for a Cure” initiative throughout Mother’s Day weekend.  To participate in the campaign and donate via phone, simply text the code: DONATE to (973) 828-0883 and follow the link to indicate the amount you’d like to contribute to the Clifton, N.J.-based not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity.

All monies raised during the weekend will support trailblazing breast cancer research being conducted under the direction of noted oncologist, Dr. Larry Norton, at the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and other national and international research facilities.   Since its inception in December 2007, CBCF has raised over $7 million for breast cancer research, which has been devoted entirely to Dr. Larry Norton’s and his colleagues’ research on the growth and spreading of breast cancer cells known as the Self-Seeding Theory. This research focuses on improving the understanding of not only breast cancer, but also other cancers.

Donors can also visit www.501auctions.com/cbcf to dedicate fund to support CBCF efforts.

ICYMI: Construction to Begin Soon on Bayonne’s Tallest Buildings

26-north-street-bayonne-mhs-renderingvia Jared Kofsky at JerseyDigs.com – New information and renderings have been revealed for a massive new mixed-use development near the 8th Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station that will be the largest and tallest of its kind in Bayonne.

The upcoming project at 26 North Street, between Avenue C and Kennedy Boulevard, is now slated to consist of two high-rise towers, each of which will be 22 stories tall. In an interview with Jersey Digs, David Greenman from Silbert Realty & Management stated that construction on this new development is expected to begin in the next 90 to 120 days.

The current plans call for each building to include 170 residential rental units, for a total of 340. The apartments are expected to mostly consist of one bedroom or two bedrooms, but some studios are possible. The ground floor will include 25,020 square feet of commercial space, which will likely be occupied in part with what Greenman describes as a regional “small footprint gourmet high-end grocery retailer.” In addition, another business such as a daycare center or a restaurant is expected to occupy 4,200 square feet. Four underground floors of parking with 725 spaces for shoppers and residents are also planned.

12 Ways to Ease into Spring Wellness

unspecified-15-682x1024by Stefani Ellenbecker –  Spring is upon is in a big way, and naturally, with the change of seasons, we are all looking to spruce up our body, mind, home and heart. Sometimes it’s not about the big changes but more about the little ways we can implement wellness into our everyday lifestyle that really makes the long-lasting difference. I asked several W&D contributors how they plan to get into a wellness groove this April and they shared a few simple ways they are clearing out their head space, exercising more, eating healthier and getting outdoors to grab some fresh air. We hope this post motivates you and gives a few pointers on how to improve your health this spring. We would love to hear in the comments below what your wellness plans are as the weather warms up!

Bridget Borden, Studio 125 Manager: “I’m trying to incorporate wellness into my daily routine – I drink a mix of hot water, apple cider vinegar and lemon in the morning, matcha green tea throughout the day and hot water with Reishi in the evenings.  Also, I love my barre classes and am full into any challenges they offer.”

Colleen Eversman of  2ndTruth: “I’ve been going to The Firm and spinning at least twice a week + going to yoga in-between. I’ve also been trying to eat less bread and dairy (I did the Whole 30 and discovered that bread and dairy make me super bloated). Drinking at least my body weight in ounces of water – it turns out, staying well hydrated helps my skin not freak out. And, being outside with Ellie (my pup) to run her for at least 30 mins a day. It’s great for her health and surprisingly restoring for me to be outside.”  FULL ARTICLE

Pale blues and serene greens can really change the mood of a space. No need to break out the paintbrush or buy a new sofa to get those peaceful, chill Spring vibes. Instead, focus on layering colored accents into your existing decor—adding a blue frame or candle on a living room console, placing a porcelain glass vase full of fresh flowers artfully on a mantel, and showcasing crystal topped containers can all enhance your room’s positive energy.
