Maplewood Asks Three Developers to Submit Full Post Office Site Proposals

By DAVID LACKEY

October 18, 2013 at 3:11 PM

MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Township Committee's Economic Development Committee has selected three finalists out the eight applicants to submit plans for the redevelopment of the post office site.

The committee had interviewed all eight firms in an effort to determine which they felt would be most likely to envision and create a plan for the site that would benefit the village most. The three developers moving to the next round are: L&M Garden State Associates; Murray Construction in conjunction with Woodmont Properties; and Wainco Realty.  Each will now submit more detailed proposals to the township.

Mayor Victor DeLuca had indicated previously that the committee hoped to choose a developer by the end of the year.

Numerous residents have expressed to the Township Committee that they would like an opportunity for the public to see and comment upon the various proposals before a final plan is chosen. Whether that will happen with the three final proposals once they are submitted is unknown at this time. DeLuca could not be reached for comment as of this writing.
