BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Planning Board regular meeting will review an application from Bob McEwan Construction Corp. regarding the property located at 27 Washington Avenue on Wednesday, Aug. 6 at 7:30 p.m. 

According to the agenda, Bob McEwan Construction Corp. is requesting approval of "minor subdivision" of Block 1802, Lot 2  into two non-conforming lots (proposed Lots 2.01 and 2.02) along with various "bulk" variances.

The former non-resident owner of 26 Washington Ave., Berkeley Heights, NJ wants to sell the 17,500 sq. ft. lot directly across the street from 26 Washington Ave., Berkeley Heights. 

A developer proposes to split the lot in half @ 8,750sq. ft. each. The zoning law is 15,000 sq. ft. Adjacent to this lot that is proposed to be developed are two new homes. One built directly behind the Washington Ave. lot was built in 2003 on 10,019 sq. ft. The second home completed in 2013 is located at 19 Washington Ave. is on 10,019 s. ft.

The problem is, if the proposed subdivision is approved, there will be two [McMansion] homes built on 8,750 sq. ft. each = 17,500 sq. ft.; or three (McMansion) houses in a row on Washingon Ave. on 27,519 sq. ft. (8,750 + 8,750 + 10,019) with a 10,019 sq. ft. property/McMansion directly behind/adjacent to the proposed subdivision. This would be four adjacent properties totaling 37,538 sq. ft. when Berkeley Heights building code calls for 60,000 sq. ft., or 15,000 sq. ft. per property.
