A hearing on a proposed self-storage facility on Drum Point Road in Brick Township will be held at the zoning board’s Feb. 1 meeting after being postponed last fall.
The self-storage facility is being proposed for the property at 345 Drum Point Road, about two blocks west of the intersection with Adamston Road. The parcel of land is mostly wooded, however a single-family home is also present on the property and would remain as part of the application. The application must be approved by a supermajority of the Zoning Board of Adjustment, as a use variance is required for the project. Self-storage facilities are not permitted in the Village Zone, where the property is located.
According to planning documents, the property on which the facility is proposed measures about a half-acre in area. The single-story storage units would stand 18-feet tall and consist of nine individual buildings as part of the larger storage facility. An office would also be built, as would a second “unidentified” building, according to the township planner’s report. The residential home would remain, as part of the request for variance relief includes seeking board approval to continue to utilize the property for both residential and commercial uses. In all, the proposal contains 12 individual structures.
In addition to the use variance, the developer is seeking routine “bulk” variances for signage, front-yard setback and side-yard setback.
The project is being developed by Del Prete Construction, of Brick, through an LLC known as Del Corp Holdings.
The hearing will be held Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. at the township municipal complex on Chambers Bridge Road.
