What’s Going There? Crews Working to Clear a Giant Lot in Egg Harbor Township
A 20-acre lot at the corner of Riddle Avenue and the Black Horse Pike (next to A Touch of Italy restaurant), where they used to sell expensive motor homes, will soon be home to a dealership selling expensive cars, some retail space, and an office building.
Crews have been working hard lately clearing the land that will become the new home of the Mercedes-Benz and Porshe car dealerships that are currently located in West Atlantic City.
According to plans submitted to Egg Harbor Township in March, 2015, that land will be developed this way:
…automobile sales, retail and office complex in two (2) phases. Phase I will consist of a 33,993 square foot Mercedes-Benz Dealership, a 10,580 square foot Porsche Dealership and a 3,380 square foot carwash / detail building housing six (6) vehicles bay. Phase II will propose a 13,650 square foot multi-tenant commercial retail building and a 22,500 square foot office building. The total site will have over 478 paved parking spaces.
An attorney representing the company that is redeveloping that land told the Egg Harbor Township Planning Board last year, “…there is a demand to build meaningful, well planned, well designed improvements to redevelop the Black Horse Pike corridor, which this applicant represents.”
