HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — After years of delays, plans to redevelop the former Wheaton glass factory site appear to be moving forward.
Cotton Mill Associates, based in Weehawken, Hudson County, is proposing a 115-unit apartment building on the 4.5-acre site. The developer is ready to submit site plans to the township Planning Board in the near future, said attorney Nicholas F. Talvacchia.
“This is going to be a first-class facility that the residents of Hamilton Township can be proud of,” Talvacchia said during a presentation before the Township Committee on Monday. “It’s been a long road. A lot of progress has been made over the last two years to make this project happen.”
No development has happened at the Mays Landing site, at Mill Street and Old Harding Highway, in decades.
The project has its New Jersey Pinelands Commission certification and is currently working through issues with the state Department of Environmental Protection, Talvacchia said.
