The site plan of the former Post Office of Maplewood is finally approved for development by Maplewood Redevelopers, LLC. A mixed-use, 20-unit residential and retail building at the site will be constructed.
The planning board recently voted 9-0 in favor and last month the township closed on the sale of the property.
Issues resolved included:
- Facade Setback – there will be a straight vertical building as pictured
- Garage Opening – width settled
- Parking Stalls on North & South Side – widths settled
There will be a transfer of the 5-year tax abatement agreement (PILOT) from the original developer, Maplewood Redevelopers, LLC, a division of JMF Properties, to two new entities: JMF Maplewood LLC and Gladstone of Maplewood LLC.
