A developer who received approval to build four warehouses, a garage and an office building at a site along Route 9 will now seek to build one individual “mini” warehouse instead.
Eli Schwab, the developer, received approval for the larger plan in 2017 but did not move forward with the project at 2133 Lakewood Road (Route 9), according to a filing by his attorney, John Paul Doyle. Schwab is now proposing a mini-warehouse building, which is a permitted use in the zone where the property is located.
Schwab will appear before the planning board June 6 to present the case for the newly-proposed use of the plot of land. Though the warehouse is a permitted use, the project requires several more routine “bulk” variances, including relief on the maximum and minimum height requirements for bulk storage, and the rear yard setback (30 feet is required, but 20 feet is proposed).
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on June 6, at the township’s municipal complex.
