‘Upscale, Boutique’ Apartments Proposed for 100 State Street

An antiquated medical office building, built in the early 1960s, as well as the parking lot next to it on State Street, partway between Queen Anne Road and Teaneck Road, might soon become part of the residential building boom in Teaneck. An application by the current owner, 100 State Street Development LLC, is looking to turn the building that currently houses five local businesses into a 64-unit multi-family residential building with 64 parking spaces. The proposed complex will be five stories with the ground floor being an open parking garage, according to records filed at the Teaneck Office of Zoning Enforcement.

What is unique about this building in the context of the rest of the projects in development throughout Teaneck is that a change of zoning is not required for the process, as it is already zoned for multi-family residential use. The developer will have to have a number of variances approved, however, to extend allowable heights, yard setbacks and widths, building coverage, lot coverage and parking-space allotments. The maximum number of dwelling units will have to be approved from 10 units to 64.

A representative of 100 State Street Development LLC, who asked not to be named, said that the building’s location has a number of residential attributes. “It’s a wonderful spot, and we’re obviously not going to have the train issue like at World of Wings. The location is one of the highest points in Teaneck so there will be no flooding issues. It’s also right in front of an express bus stop and there are two underused municipal parking lots across the street,” he added.

The representative also said that the building, designed by the architectural firm Poskanzer Skott of Ridgewood, is planned to be elegant and upscale—a boutique building with amenities such as in-unit washers and dryers. “However, if there is an affordable housing component, we fully intend and expect to comply with it,” he said. He added that the developers view the State Street/Terrace Circle area of Teaneck as a growing “mini-city center” like Cedar Lane, “while it won’t usurp Cedar Lane, it will supplement it as a nice, upscale municipal neighborhood.”

The application is tentatively set to be brought before the Teaneck Zoning Board on April 7.
