BRICK, NJ — A longstanding bank at the Brick Commons shopping center will be demolished and replaced by two restaurants under an application approved by the Brick Township Board of Adjustment.
That approval is set to be memorialized at the zoning board’s Oct. 7 meeting.
The application by Urban Edge Properties, which owns the shopping center, sought approval to raze the former Santander bank that sits near the Route 70 entrance to the shopping center and replace it with two restaurants with outdoor seating. The exising signs for the shopping center will be updated as well.
Urban Edge Properties said its tenants for the two restaurants are not finalized.
The two restaurants will have outdoor seating — something that was planned before the coronavirus pandemic, according to the application documents.
The plans for the project include drawings that indicate a burger restaurant and a baked goods restaurant are targeted for the two restaurants. One would be 3,800 square feet and the second would be 3,200 square feet, based on the drawings.
Also set to be memorialized at the Oct. 7 meeting is an approval of an amended application from PMG New Jersey, for the proposed Wawa at the corner of Lanes Mill Road and Burnt Tavern Road. The initial application was approved in 2018, but requirements from the state for added road right-of-way led to a need for a new approval because of the reduced setback for the building from the roads.
The Brick Township Board of Adjustment meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. and can been viewed online via Zoom. Information on watching and participating in the meeting is included on the zoning board agenda.
