The SPDSAIL LLC development, located at the intersection of Morris Avenue and Church Mall continues as well. The demolition of the existing building was completed earlier this year. Foundation excavation, sewer lateral construction and utility pole relocations have also been performed.

The former Saks Property was brought in front of the planning board in Sept. 2019. It was approved for a mixed-use residential / commercial development. The proposed project will include 47 townhomes and 223 apartment units. It will also include 5,215 square feet of retail space.

Developers are working with Township Officials to move forward on that project in 2020.

Finally, construction continues at the Wawa site up Morris Turnpike. In addition to construction, a traffic light has been added on the corner of Cleveland and Morris. The store is slated to open in 2020.
