New Mixed-Use Building Planned Near Caldwell University

Caldwell, New Jersey: A new development could be coming to Western Essex County.

According to a legal notice, a mixed-use building is planned for 55-57 Bloomfield Avenue, between Mountain Avenue and Linwood Terrace, in the Borough of Caldwell. The building is slated to include a dental office, six residential apartments, and a small warehouse unit. 16 parking spaces are proposed for the property as well. The project applicant is RIA Holdings, LLC of North Caldwell, while Steven Corso is the development architect, the notice states.

Currently, the property, located next to a Lakeland Bank branch, contains a building previously occupied by C&G Auto Tech. RIA Holdings acquired the lot, which sits near the borders of North Caldwell and Essex Fells, in June for $900,000, according to NJ Parcels records. The site is within walking distance of buses to Newark and New York, as well as the Caldwell University campus.

The Caldwell Zoning Board of Adjustment will hear the proposal on Wednesday, January 4th, 2017 at 7:00pm inside the Caldwell Municipal Building.
