On September 17, 2019, the Scotch Plains Township Council approved a Conditional Redevelopment Agreement with Advance Realty for the redevelopment of the Tier 1, Phase 1 section of Scotch Plains Downtown.
After review of proposals submitted in response to the RFQ/RFP for the Tier 1, Phase 1 section of Scotch Plains Downtown, the Scotch Plains Downtown Redevelopment Committee determined that the proposal submitted by Advance Realty, as revised, best represents the Township’s vision with regards to downtown redevelopment.
However, before fully designating Advance Realty as the redeveloper for Tier 1, Phase 1, the Township Council passed a Conditional Agreement requiring Advance Realty to fulfill certain conditions outlined in Schedule A. If those conditions are met and a final Redevelopment Plan is determined to be viable, financially feasible and consistent with the goals and vision of the Township, it is the intention of the Township Council to designate Advance Realty as the redeveloper for Tier 1, Phase 1. This agreement has been extended with the last extension occurring on October 6, 2020 and ending on January 5, 2021 while the Township and the developer continue to discuss the open items in the agreement.
