The plan calls for as many as 145 single-family seniors’ homes, as well as amenities such as swimming pools and a clubhouse. Portions of the site along Route 36 will also be used to create a commercial district.
Designed by Warren Tillinghast, the nearly century-old golf course opened in 1929 on 136 acres on the site of an old apple orchard.
The attempt to redevelop the golf course began a decade ago when a National Realty Development Corporation affiliate proposed a 450,000-square-foot commercial development with 175 townhomes. A lawsuit challenges the borough’s rejection of an amendment to allow the development to be commercialized. The lawsuit was ultimately dismissed without going anywhere.
It is unclear whether NRDC would be involved in the discussed development, but the country club is not listed on the company’s website as part of its portfolio.The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment real deal.
The lot has been zoned for a single-family housing development. In order to allow for the proposed commercial development on Route 36, certain accommodations will need to be made.
Golf courses and country clubs remain open for now.General manager Robert Schelling did not immediately respond to a request for comment TRD.
