TEANECK, N.J. — Amendment of Teaneck’s Master Plan may pave the way for a 248-unit apartment complex at 1775 Windsor Rd., currently occupied by a catering hall and butterfly museum, NorthJersey.com reported.
The Planning Board has directed planner Richard Preiss to make the change, which will have to be voted on by the Mayor and Council to take effect. The property would then have to be rezoned, NorthJersey.com said, because the tract isn’t zoned for high density multi-family use.
The development as proposed by AvalonBay will have 248 residential units and a 481 space parking garage, if approved as presented, according to NorthJersey.com. But the Planning Board could also ask for modifications.
The site is adjacent to the CSX railroad tracks, and is also part of a 100-year flood zone, NorthJersey.com said. AvalonBay is a very active developer with current applications in several communities, but its all-wood construction and dense design have come under criticism after a massive fire at the Avalon complex in Edgewater last January destroyed 240 units and left 500 people homeless.
