Hoboken residents are now one roll of a packed grocery cart closer to having convenient access to Trader Joe's signature Speculoos cookie butter, frozen mandarin orange chicken, and pumpkin ice cream.

According to Hoboken spokesman Juan Melli, Advance at Hoboken LLC filed a Certificate of Zoning application Sept. 24 that was approved Sept. 28, and the plans included architectural drawings for a Trader Joe's.

For several years now, the prospective addition to Hoboken of a Trader Joe's, a specialty American grocery store chain, has been no secret.

Advance Realty, which is quickly building its luxury residential development in Hoboken at Willow Ave. and 14th Street, proposed a Trader Joe's on the bottom floor years ago, Melli said, along with a large underground parking garage.

The latest zoning application's approval "essentially means that it's consistent with the zoning for the area," Melli said. "Any variances that were required were granted at a Zoning Board hearing years ago."

"The next step would be to begin the plan review process with the Building Department to get permits to do construction," Melli said, and then they would need a certificate of occupancy approved.

Melli did not know if Trader Joe's had officially signed a lease, and Advance Realty declined a request for comment about the status of the prospective Trader Joe's.

Trader Joe's has not yet responded to a media inquiry.

Trader Joe's has been eagerly anticipated by some city residents since word of the discussion got out several years ago. Anticipation has recently ratcheted up following unconfirmed media reports that Trader Joe's has signed a lease.
