Borough Approves New Street Development

| No Comments

Meuchen's  borough council approved plans for the 250 units of high-end housing, a tract for retail space and a 750-spot parking structure."It's been a long time coming," Metuchen Mayor Thomas Vahalla told the Star-Ledger. "Development has to be prudent and fit with our character. I think this development will do that. We're anxiously waiting for shovels to be in the ground." If all goes well, the construction could begin in six months.

The project includes an anxiously-awaited open-space piazza surrounded by prime retail spots. High-end apartments will rent for about $1,800 to $1,900 a month, bringing more customers for established Main Street businesses.

"You're going to have people who are there walking to the restaurants, to the cleaners, the other shops," Vahalla said. "You're going to see an upswing in activity on Main Street."

The piazza space has been moved to the other side of the development but otherwise existing plans stay the same as formerly published.
