HILLSBOROUGH – The apartment boom is continuing as the township planning board is hearing a proposal to build nearly 200 apartments on Route 206 just south of Bottle King.
The proposal, tentatively called Hillsborough Village Center, calls for 191 apartments in 13 buildings to be constructed on the 8.82-acre lot that will be created by combining the eight lots of the single-family homes on the highway, attorney Michael O’Grodnick told the planning board last week. The single-family homes, most in a state of disrepair, will be demolished.
Of the 191 apartments, 46 will be affordable and the remainder will be market-rate units. The plan is “consistent” with the township’s court-mandated agreement to meet its affordable housing quota, said O’Grodnick.
The Planning Board approved the application on May 2, 2019.
