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.

It was not disclosed in a public notice which bank and which retail stores would be moving in to the development.

    What about the old oil change place next to Saint Dominic’s Church? I heard that the land was a mess from oil not being disposed of correctly but that might have just been a rumor.

    Seems like a decent property.

      The problem was that the owner (prior to my moving to Brick) had contaminated the land and was allowed to sell to a new owner who then was not allowed to build on the property without remedying the problem at an extremely high cost. Not sure what eventually occurred. At same time we were dealing with French’s landfill. It is not my job to investigate but is the Town Council’s responsibility to ensure we are properly advised of these type of notification.

    We’ve only got 7,349 Walgreens, Rite Aids, and CVS stores in Brick. We need more.

    There’s enough strip malls in Brick with empty stores, fill those first, how about a nice park with some benches and flowers instead

    Besides the clean up of an eyesore I see no need for this;
