A development consisting of apartments and a gas station is in the works for a site located alongside a suburban Mercer County thoroughfare.
The complex in question is being proposed for 1080 Route 130 and an adjacent parcel in Hamilton Township. Developer 1080 Rt. 130, LLC is seeking approvals for eight three-story residential buildings that would include a total of 150 rental units, according to a notice of hearing. The company is also reportedly planning a 5,696-square-foot convenience store by the gas station.
The Hamilton Township Zoning Board of Adjustment is scheduled to hear these plans on Tuesday, February 9, at 6:00 p.m., according to a tentative meeting agenda. The meeting will take place over Zoom.
A copy of the development application that was released ahead of the hearing states that a 2,000-square-foot clubhouse and 311 parking spaces are also envisioned for the residential side of the site. Meanwhile, a November 2020 concept site plan from Lanning Engineering Co., Inc. shows that there would be 51 one-bedroom units, 26 one-bedroom “with loft” units, 67 two-bedroom units, and six three-bedroom units, with one building listed as including “affordable housing.”
The premises are located along the southbound side of Route 130 between the Robbinsville Township line and Interstate 195. This part of Mercer County is largely auto-oriented, though the Route 130 Connection provides limited bus service to the Trenton Transit Center while New Jersey Transit’s 606 bus to Trenton and Princeton also stops nearby.
