Redevelopment Plan

The following is the Redevelopment Plan for Block 64 of the Borough of Fanwood, the area bounded by South Avenue, Martine Avenue, La Grande Avenue and Second Street in downtown Fanwood. The redevelopment area is approximately 6.5 acres in size. It is situated at the intersection of two heavily-traveled arterial roads: Route 28 (South Avenue) and Martine Avenue (County Route 655), which leads north to downtown Scotch Plains, State Route 22, and Interstate 78. The study area is located directly across South Avenue from the Fanwood train station, which provides direct train service to Newark and New York City via New Jersey Transit’s Raritan Valley line. The redevelopment area currently has a mix of various commercial uses, including retail, office, warehouse, and light industry as well as vacant land.
