UNION, NJ – A redevelopment plan for the Clinton Manor property on Route 22 was announced today by Union Mayor Suzette Cavadas.
Cavadas said the owner of the property, working with the Marriot organization, will repurpose the site to a five-story hotel and banquet hall.
“As Mayor, it has been one of my highest priorities to help move Union forward by working with residents, businesses and property owners to ensure the safety and economic integrity of our town,” said Cavadas.
“Today I’m proud to announce that through encouragement and a collaborative process with the property owner of Clinton Manor, we will soon see the transformation we have all been anxiously anticipating.”
The new Marriot is expected to include 153 rooms, a banquet hall with approximately a 400-person capacity and possibly a pool.
Cavadas said Marriot and their affiliates will be handling everything from construction to the management of the property. Demolition of the existing structure is expected to begin this summer.
The Mayor said because of Union’s proximity to Newark Airport, and position at the center of major thoroughfares of transportation, the township “believes that an investment of this magnitude has been a long time coming.”
“This is an exciting time for Union, and we are confident that this new project will continue to position us in a way that will yield progress, and economic growth,” Cavadas said.
