Apartments approved for the Tropical Food Market site

SOUTH RIVER – Borough zoning council approved a request to build 17 two-bedroom apartments at 60-62 Main St.

Council approved the resolution at its Oct. 26 meeting, after public hearings had been held on the request since the summer.

Main Street LLC has requested a waiver of use and approval of the preliminary site plan to expand and renovate the buildings. The plan includes the expansion and renovation of the two buildings to create a three-story building with commercial spaces and supermarkets on the first floor and apartments on the second and third floors, the resolution says.

Main Street LLC originally offered 22 one- and two-bedroom apartments, but after concerns were raised by the board of directors, the plan was amended to offer 17 two-bedroom apartments, the resolution says.

A plan for a three story mixed use building at 60-62 Main Street in South River has been approved.

Main Street LLC also proposed to use the space at 53 Obert Street as a 10-space parking lot.

The applicant must post signs in the parking areas indicating that the spaces are reserved for apartment residents, and the supermarket, which is now Tropical Food Market, is limited to seven deliveries per week with a maximum truck size of 26 feet.
