An office building in a Morris County suburb could be torn down in order to construct an entirely residential multi-family development.
Plans by a developer call for demolishing the 33,736-square-foot building at 169 Johnson Road in Parsippany and replacing the structure with an 87-unit “inclusionary” project, according to a public notice from earlier this month.
The company, identified solely at 169 Johnson Road, LLC, is seeking preliminary and final major site plan approval in order to construct the proposed four-story building. The notice says that the complex would include 18 “low- and moderate-income units,” one level of parking, and an “amenity area” if approved.
The existing office building has been referred to as Brevent Plaza over the years. The 2.57-acre property is situated just south of Route 10 at the edge of a residential neighborhood near numerous other office buildings. New Jersey Transit’s train station in Morris Plains is just over a mile from the tract.
This area has seen a number of development projects and proposals in recent years, including the new Signature Place apartments, Coventry Park, and The District at 1515.
169 Johnson Road, LLC’s application is scheduled to go before the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Planning Board on Monday, December 21, according to the notice. The board’s meeting is scheduled to begin over Webex at 7:30 p.m.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Parsippany-Troy Hills Township Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
