A development firm has applied for permission to turn what it describes as an abandoned Route 70 building into modern office space.

BTACH, LLC is seeking approval from the township’s planning board to rehabilitate and renovate the building at 848 Route 70, formerly known as Furniture Source, so it can become a professional building that will house law offices.

The developer will require several variances, many of which are pre-existing, in order to win approval, including minimum acreage, minimum lot width, and the sizes of several setbacks. The variances required are minor “bulk” variances, commonly known as a “C” variances.

According to planning documents, 10 foot-wide parking spaces are required, though nine foot-wide spaces are proposed for the site. 

This application will be heard by the Brick Township Planning Board at a public meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 in the Brick Township Municipal Complex, 401 Chambers Bridge Road. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
