A developer has proposed a new office building along Route 9 in Toms River, filings with the township’s planning board said.

The office building is planned for the east side of Route 9 between Riverwood Drive and Silverton Road. The site, located at 1879 Lakewood Road, is currently undeveloped.

According to the planning board filing, 1879 Lakewood Road BSSL LLC is asking for approval to construct a one-story 8,280 square foot commercial office building and related site improvements including parking, lighting, landscaping, stormwater management, driveway and a circulation path.

The office building conforms to the zone, however one routine “bulk” variance is required before approval. Under Toms River ordinances, a 43,560 square foot lot is required, while the existing lot measures 43,162 square feet, just below the threshold.

The matter will be heard at the Dec. 16 meeting of the planning board, which begins at 6 p.m. at the township municipal building. Documents related to the application can be accessed before the meeting at town hall.
