A company will return to the Brick Township Board of Adjustment next month to modify an existing plan to turn a long-shuttered gas station into a bank and retail property.

Daibes Gas 14, LLC already received permission to build on what is now the deteriorating remains of a gas station located at 1855 Route 88, near the intersection with Post Road (and Princeton Avenue). The new development will also take up adjacent lots, through 1867 Route 88.

The company will return to request a number of minor variances as development looms, including one to waive the requirement that a three-foot berm be placed along parking spaces backing up to the public right-of-way, and from the provision of a minimum of one shade tree and three shrubs for every ten parking stalls, plus from the provision requiring low-level plantings and mulch ground cover on the parking islands.
