Glen Rock, Bergen County, could see the construction of a new mixed-use complex near one of its two commuter rail stations.

A firm called Glen Rock Mall, LLC is proposing three buildings with a total of 69 residential units and 11,118 square feet of commercial space at 175 Rock Road, according to a public notice

The premises at 175 Rock Road consist of several tracts located a stone’s throw away from Glen Rock’s stop along New Jersey Transit’s Main Line and the rock that gave the community its name. The properties contain plenty of parking along with two small strip malls.

Glen Rock Mall, LLC is planning to “demolish approximately 34,725 sq. ft. of the existing commercial structure(s) at the rear of the site and approximately 1,957 sq. ft. comprising a residence plus a detached garage” in order to proceed with the project, the notice says.

Few additional details regarding the plans have been released yet.

Glen Rock is unique among New Jersey suburbs in that it has two train stations on separate rail lines within a short walk of each other, with the borough’s downtown in between.

Two Glen Rock Planning Board meetings regarding the proposal are scheduled to take place this week. An agenda shows that a work session regarding the application is scheduled for today, Monday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m., while a formal hearing is set to take place on Wednesday, November 3, at 7:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held at the Glen Rock Municipal Building.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Glen Rock Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
