BRIDGEWATER – A proposal to demolish an office building and build a warehouse on Route 202-206 will be heard by the township zoning board of adjustment on Feb. 15.

M&M at 206 LLC is applying for a use variance to build the 211,540-square-foot warehouse, about the size of 3½  football fields, at 721 Route 202-206, on the west side of the highway just north of Bridgewater Audi and Allen Road. It was scheduled to be heard by the board on Tuesday evening.

M&M at 206 LLC asked for the delay.

By comparison, the plan for the controversial The Bridge development, a little more than a mile north of the site on the highway, called for 243,834 square feet of retail space, including a ShopRite. 

A public hearing on a proposal to demolish the office building at 721 Route 202-206 and replace it with a warehouse will be held in February.

A use variance is required because warehouses are not a permitted use in the zone.

M&M at 206 LLC, which has the same Piscataway address as Edgewood Properties owned by township resident Jack Morris, purchased the 15.86-acre lot in January 2010 from Mack-Cali for $6 million.

The site plans calls for the warehouse to have 35 60-foot loading bays and four 40-foot loading bays.
