BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Bridgewater Township approved a resolution Monday authorizing the execution of a redevelopment agreement with Eden Wood Realty for the redevelopment of the former Weyerhauser property fronting on East Main Street and Radel Avenue.
The plan for the redevelopment, which was approved by the planning board in October, is for a 220-unit complex with 44 affordable units and 176 market units. A minimum of 88 of those market units will have one bedroom, and the remaining will have no more than two bedrooms.
The redevelopment itself can now move forward.
The agreement includes a number of provisions requested by the township, including that the construction work and vehicles will stay off the local streets as much as possible.
The township, in October, approved an ordinance and resolutionto vacate a section of Radel Avenue as part of the redevelopment, a total of about 2,289 feet of road to accommodate the new development.
Residents have expressed concerns in the past about how many children will be in the units and traffic concerns on the smaller streets in that area.
In summer 2016, an existing oil tank was removed from the property and test pits were excavated to continue clean-up of the site prior to any building.
