Target Department Store was originally proposed as the anchor for DDR’s shopping center, but that deal never materialized.
No building permits have been issued yet for the DDR site, according to the building inspector’s office. However, DDR received a building permit in September for $9.8 million worth of site improvements and utility work in support of its anchor tenant, which at the time was not named. The cost of the permit was $59,185.
The new site plan shows 1,600 parking spaces primarily located between two parallel strips of stores — six stores, including Walmart, on the south side of the plaza and nine stores on the north. Entrances are off Route 1 across from New Zealand Road and off Provident Way, behind Provident Bank. All of the entrances were approved after a lengthy battle, Off-site road improvements call for widening the Route 107 bridge over Interstate 95 as well as Route 1 and Provident Way.
