One of the few remaining sites in Wayne that has not yet become the site of suburban development could be redeveloped in the years to come.
The properties at 1621, 1673, and 1701 Hamburg Turnpike are the subject of plans for a townhome complex called Pointview Walk at Wayne, likely named for the nearby Point View Reservoir.
K. Hovnanian North Jersey Acquisitions, LLC is looking to receive preliminary and final subdivision and major site plan approval in order to proceed with a 105-unit development, according to an August 17 memo by Wayne Township Planner Christopher Kok.
A total of 47 two-bedroom units and 58 three-bedroom units would reportedly be split among 10 buildings.
These parcels, which have largely been used over the years by a greenhouse and landscaping company, are surrounded by suburban sprawl in this Passaic County township.
Kok’s memo says that the premises are the subject of a settlement agreement between Wayne’s municipal government and K. Hovnanian North Jersey Acquisitions, LLC that calls for an “affordable housing set-aside” of 21 residential units.
An application submitted to Wayne Township by the LLC identifies the company as the contract purchaser of the lots and says that the residential units would have a condominium form of ownership.
This matter is scheduled to go before the Wayne Planning Board during a special public Zoom meeting today, Monday, August 23, at 7:30 p.m.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Wayne Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
