West Orange, New Jersey: A suburban building that once housed a restaurant could soon finally be torn down.
According to a legal notice, an application has been filed for a vacant residence and for the structure previously occupied by the Mount Fuji Japanese Steak House to be demolished. The restaurant, located at 303 Mount Pleasant Avenue, at the corner of Prospect Avenue, closed its doors nearly a decade ago, and has remained unoccupied since, though a sign advertising Avellino Development, LLC has been posted outside for the last several years.
Now, the notice states that GBSJ Properties, LLC, which, according to data from the New Jersey Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services, was registered in November 2016 out of Lincoln Park, Morris County, is planning to build a child care center on the premises. The company has applied for preliminary and final site plan approval with variances. 44 parking spaces would be provided on site should the application be approved.
The West Orange Planning Board will hear the proposal during its meeting on Wednesday, May 3rd at 7:00pm at the Municipal Building, located at 66 Main Street.
