SOMERVILLE, NJ  - Edgewood Properties, the developer of the Somerville Town Center luxury apartments on West Main Street, will make a presentation to the Borough Council Monday night on Phase II of the project, which will include a second five-story building and parking deck.

The mixed-use building will be bordered by South Davenport Street, Veterans Memorial Drive West and South Doughty Street.

Ron Aulenbach, director of Engineering and Planning for Edgewood owner Jack Morris, will make the presentation.

The meeting begins following the Borough Council’s closed executive session at 6 p.m. at Police headquarters, 24 South Bridge St.

Preliminary plans call for 138 one- and two-bedroom apartments on the four upper floors, with retail space on the ground floor, similar to the building on the east side of South Davenport Street that includes the Starbucks coffee shop and Wolfgang’s Steakhouse.

The developer has plans for a 40,000 square foot gym and wellness center on the ground floor of the new building, along with an all-weather, four seasons food court, according to Colin Driver, the borough’s director of Economic Development.

 The parking deck will features 500 spaces, with 270 spaces exclusive to the tenants of both buildings; the remaining 230 spaces will be available for public parking, helping to alleviate the shortage of parking in the downtown district. The borough’s Parking Utility will manage the public parking, according to Driver.

Entry for residents will be off South Doughty Street; public access to the parking deck will be off of South Davenport Street, according to Driver. A portion of the deck will be below grade.

Driver expects Edgewood Properties will file its application with the borough Planning Board sometime in October to begin the formal review process; the developer has been working with Driver and other borough officials to refine its plans before submission.

The façade facing South Doughty Street will be designed to imitate early 20th-century brownstone buildings, according to Driver.

Once approvals are secured, the developer will have to relocate existing underground utility lines before a concrete foundation can be poured. Construction of the parking deck will follow, after which the steel girders will be erected, according to Driver.
