SOUTH PLAINFIELD – A remediated junkyard on Hamilton Boulevard could become a warehouse and retail development if it is approved by the borough’s zoning board of adjustment this month.

The board began hearing the application by 2271 Hamilton Blvd, LLC to build a one-story, 54,697-square-foot warehouse/office building and a one-story, 10,350-square-foot retail building at the corner of Ryan Street and Hamilton Boulevard last December and January.

However, in February the developer asked for an adjournment because new plans had to be drawn after the board had asked for changes. But the pandemic disrupted the board’s meeting schedule.

The board is now scheduled to hear the application at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 in the senior center, 90 Maple Ave.

The 3.73-acre property was formerly occupied by Boro Auto Wrecking’s recycling and metal salvage yard.

At the board’s Jan. 7 meeting, Chairman Gino Leonardis said he would like the site to have a “very fresh new look.”

The developer had already reduced the size of the warehouse by 3,000 square feet, shifted an entrance further east on Ryan Street and separated the retail and warehouse parking areas.

Edison resident Mani Bakshi, who already owns a food distribution warehouse at 6 Hollywood Court, told the board on December that the retail uses – a deli and a coffee shop – would be in front of the property while the warehouse would be in the rear.

According to Shamas Kelly, the developer’s environmental consultant, the property had been a junkyard since the 1930s. The state Department of Environmental Protection found contamination on the site in the 1980s and when the former owner could not remediate the contamination, the state took over control of the property.

The applicant proposes 76 off-street parking spaces, where 113 parking spaces are required; eight loading bays to the proposed office/warehouse building, and associated landscaping, signage and site circulation.

A use variance relief is required as retail uses are not permitted in the M-3 Zone.

The application and related documents are on file with the South Plainfield Planning & Zoning Department and available for inspection in coordination with that department to respect existing Covid guidelines.
