The Township of Maplewood has revealed a rendering of the Post Office Site, located at 160 Maplewood Ave.
The Maplewood Township Committee unanimously voted to enter an escrow agreement with L&M Development Partners of Larchmont, NY, after narrowing the selection down from eight developers.
“We need to take this step so we can get to the next phase, which will include a lot more input, we can make more stuff public now, and we can have a more focused and detailed conversation to get this to a project we can all agree on,” said De Luca.
The Township made good on his word to make more information public by releasing a rendering of the proposed site, prepared by L&M.
The preliminary layout includes street level retail space suitable for Kings Supermarket, currently located across Maplewood Ave., a ground floor level of retail spaces, and 25 apartments above. The US Postal Service is considering 1830 Springfield Avenue as a possible property for relocation, the township previously stated on its website.
“As the preferred developer, L&M and the Township will negotiate financial and site details,” the Township posted on its website. “The developer must work with the Village Alliance on the design features of the building. Additionally, L&M and Kings will need to negotiate a mutually agreeable lease.”
