A suburban Passaic County township might soon have a new mixed-use development within a half-mile walk of one of its two train stations.
The properties at 115 Main Street, 10 Warren Street, and 12 Warren Street in Little Falls are where a firm named The Manor at Little Falls, LLC wants to construct a three-story building with 56 residential units, retail space that could include a bank branch, and 104 parking spaces, according to a notice of hearing.
The tracts in question fall within what the Township of Little Falls refers to as its “Transit Village Central Business District” and include a surface parking lot along with a building that contains a Valley Bank branch.
In addition to the Little Falls train station, the premises are within a short walk of the Little Falls Public Library, several local restaurants along Main Street and Paterson Avenue, commuter bus service, Morris Canal Park, and the Passaic River. However, several Little Falls neighborhoods have seen significant flooding from the Passaic River multiple times over the last few decades.
The Manor at Little Falls, LLC was incorporated in June out of Nutley, according to state business filings. The company, which is listed as the contract purchaser of the site, is scheduled to go before the Little Falls Planning Board during a virtual public meeting on Thursday, August 5, at 7:00 p.m. to request preliminary and final site plan approval with variances, the notice says.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Little Falls Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
