Property is on Elm Street with ingress/egress from Elm Street, Poplar Street and Ash Street. Elm Street is “traffic constrained” making the development as an industrial property challenging. In preliminary conversations with Borough Manager, Stephanie Cecco, Self-Storage was discussed as a potential redevelopment option and appeared to receive preliminary support. Residential redevelopment may also be an allowable use as the adjacent parcels at 263 East Elm Street are being redeveloped into a 21-24 unit multi-story condo project.
