Requesting revision of an existing approved redevelopment plan for the coop that was originally called Gregory Park and is now Metro Towers. The residential towers approved by the existing plan would be similar to the existing towers and would be aligned along Christopher Columbus. Jay Valgora, architect from Studio V, described their goal is to essentially reintegrate the new development back into downtown, and to include green roofs.

Elena from Pasta Dal Cuore: www.pastadalcuorejc.com
“Pasta Dal Cuore began as a dream born in Colorno, a small town outside of Parma, Italy in 2010 while attending culinary school at ALMA. After traveling extensively through Italy, researching the best restaurants known for their fresh pasta, I returned home to Jersey City with the goal of owning my own pasta shop. It is our mission to make fresh pasta with all-natural quality ingredients. In the near future we are planning on adding cheeses, butters and home-made sauces to accompany our fresh pastas.”
