Months after a hearing was scuttled at the last minute, a real estate development firm will present its latest plan to build on what has become known as the “triangle lot” that borders three major roads in Brick.

Kamson Corporation, which previously proposed a Marriott hotel for the site, has modified its proposal to build 92 apartment units and adjacent retail space. The development would be located on a 9.39-acre plot that borders Route 88, Burrsville Road and Jack Martin Boulevard.

The hearing will be conducted at a special meeting of the Board of Adjustment, paid for by Kamson, to be held Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex.

The project, according to past filings with the township, would include three buildings consisting of approximately 48,431 square feet of retail space and 92 apartments. Kamson’s plan also calls for a fourth building consisting of 5,000 square feet of dedicated retail space along with parking, outdoor plazas, site lighting, landscaping and stormwater management, according to the filing.

The proposal has generated opposition from residents of neighboring streets, who fear they will be inundated with traffic, unable to safely turn onto the state highway and be subject to flooding from excess stormwater.

Originally, Kamson had proposed 66 apartments at the site alongside a 103-room Marriott hotel. That proposal was abandoned, however, after the owner of a small piece of land on the triangular lot sued, challenging the fact that the planning board, rather than the Zoning Board of Adjustment, was hearing the case.
