Jersey City’s planning board recently announced a special meeting to be held on March 28 to discuss a dozen cannabis dispensaries scattered throughout different neighborhoods.
Perhaps the most significant would be located at 284 First Street, an address that could house the city’s first consumption lounge. Per our exclusive reporting from last week, a Freehold-based company called The Perennial Group is looking to bring an endeavor called Cream Dispensary and Lounge to the current Hard Grove Café space. The company has already launched a website and hopes to open by late 2022.
Staying Downtown, four other cannabis businesses are hoping to open along Newark Avenue’s Pedestrian Plaza. The first application for 141 Newark Avenue comes from Oceanfront Holdings, who are looking to expand their current alternative treatment center into an “adult use” cannabis facility that would allow them to serve both patients and the general public out of their 1,950-square foot space.
