A suburban Bergen County community might see dozens of townhouses constructed within its municipal limits.

The “Fyke Brook Estates” project consisting of 40 townhouses is being proposed for 1 Fyke Road near Seminary Drive in Mahwah, according to documents released by the township government.

Application materials that were submitted by Paramus-based Fyke Brook Estates, LLC state that “currently, there is a single family dwelling unit and a vacant contractor’s yard on the property,” but that they are slated to be replaced with a total of eight buildings.

Eight of the units would reportedly be designated as “affordable,” with five two-bedroom units, two three-bedroom units, and one unit with one bedroom. The remaining 32 units would be “market rate” and each consists of three bedrooms, according to the application documents.

The site is located within a residential neighborhood that is situated between routes 202 and 287, not far from the Ramapo College campus and Ramapo Valley County Reservation.

The application materials list the Estate of John Merrill as the owner of the 5.294-acre premises, but note that Fyke Brook Estates, LLC “is the contract purchaser of the property.”

The Mahwah Planning Board is scheduled to hear this proposal during a meeting that will take place on Monday, April 26, at 7:30 p.m. over Zoom.
