UNION CITY, NJ — Unity Bank has provided a $3.6 million Small Business Administration (SBA) loan to Ashraf Soliman of Cliffside Park for the renovation and expansion of Hudson Gas & Auto Service, Inc. at 3200 Kennedy Blvd. in Union City. The near 10,000 s/f lot will include a Sunoco gas station, convenience store and two-bay mechanic’s garage upon completion.
“I was looking for funding for the project when a friend connected me with Unity Bank,” said Soliman. “Unity could not have made the process any more efficient. The property is in a prime location and really has been underutilized so I look forward to starting construction as soon as possible.”
The completed project will feature two gas pump stations covered by a canopy that leads to the convenience store located in a two-story building. The C-Store will occupy approximately 1,700 s/f on the building’s first floor with the second floor utilized for storage and office space. The two-bay mechanic’s garage, approximately 900 s/f, will be connected to the convenience store.
