New Jersey developer has big plans for Yorktown Green shopping center
The Yorktown Green shopping center is set to receive a complete transformation.
The Yorktown shopping center’s owner plans to transform the nearly vacant location into a sleek residential, retail destination.
Preliminary plans include 150 market-rate one- and two-bedroom apartments, a new grocery store and other amenities to complement the Yorktown Grill.
“It should be huge for our business and huge for the community first,” says Doug Crosset, of Yorktown.
Although the proposal is premature, Town Supervisor Matt Slater is excited for what’s to come.
“It’s the shot in the arm this town and local economy needs,” says Slater.
Slater believes the combination of the diverse housing stock and retail opportunities will make it a place that will attract people from all over.
Town officials say they are still waiting to receive official plans from the developer, but they remain hopeful that the project may begin this year.
