Two properties in Hunterdon County that are located across Route 31 from the Spruce Run Reservoir could become the site of a development with nearly 150 residential units.
Ingerman Development Company, LLC is proposing six new buildings at 1726 and 1730 Route 31 in Clinton Township as part of what site plans refer to as the “Willows at Spruce Run” project.
A July 21 memo from Burgis Associates, Inc. to the Clinton Township Planning Board says that this project would be a “146-unit inclusionary multifamily development, 80 units of which will be designated for low and moderate-income households.”
There would be 62 one-bedroom units, 70 two-bedroom units, 24 three-bedroom units, and 288 parking spaces, according to the Burgis memo.
The Spruce Run Veterinary Hospital building occupies one of the properties while the remaining parcel is a wooded area that was once used for agricultural purposes, a separate memo from Bosenberg Landscape Architecture says.
This 11.7-acre site is located roughly two miles from the High Bridge train station, which is the last stop on New Jersey Transit’s Raritan Valley Line.
Ingerman is based in Collingswood and already has numerous developments in New Jersey that have “The Willows” as part of their branding, including The Willows at Symphony Hall in Newark, The Willows at Cedar Knolls in Hanover Township, and The Willows at Wesmont Station in Wood-Ridge.
The company is scheduled to go before the Clinton Township Planning Board during a special meeting on Monday, July 26, at 7:00 p.m. to seek approval for this project, according to a notice of hearing. The meeting will be held at 1370 Route 31 North.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Clinton Township Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
