RANDOLPH, NJ - At Thursday's meeting, Township Manager Stephen Mountain provided an overview of recent development activities around Randolph, such as the Kmart plaza, A&P plaza and Mark's Corner.

Mountain began with the progress at the Kmart Plaza, explaining that the plaza owner is now looking to market the 110,000 square foot space where the Kmart store had been located.

“The owner is working with an architect to rework the space,” Mountain said. “Now that the Kmart lease has ended, the owner is moving much more aggressively to market the space.”

Two other spaces in the Kmart plaza, formerly Blockbuster and Friendly’s, will be converted into a Colombian restaurant named "Noches de Colombia." Mountain reported that construction for the restaurant is already underway.

The owner of “Mark’s Corner,” the shopping center being developed at the intersection of Sussex Turnpike and West Hanover Avenue in Mount Freedom, will be including a small office development within the space. They are actively marketing the retail spaces.

“At the A&P Plaza, the property owner is advising us that negotiations are serious,” Mountain said. “We want to hear more about the anchor space.”

Mountain has invited the owner to town hall to discuss the plans for the large grocery space, as well as plans for the smaller vacancies with the township council.

The hotel at the Skyland’s Banquet Hall property has been in discussion for many years. Mountain was able to update the council stating that the property is now owned by a California-based company which is redesigning the hotel plan for the space.

A Wendy’s restaurant has also been approved for Route 10 East on the property next to the Randolph Diner which was formerly the martial arts center.

Mountain also provided an update on the Sussex Turnpike construction. “[The contractor] plans to complete curbing over the next few weeks and the final paving is scheduled for October 17,” he said.

“For months, all I heard were complaints, but now I’m starting to hear it’s going to look good,” said Deputy Mayor Chris Carey in response to the Sussex Turnpike update. The residents are getting more excited as they see more progress on the construction, she explained.

Mountain also reminded the council of the Route 10 closure in Roxbury from Friday, Oct. 21 at 8p.m. to Monday, Oct 24 at 6 a.m.
