The commission gave its first green light in the approvals process Tuesday night for the $60 million project.

Once the trustees vote, the developer for "The Grand," to be situated on approximately 10 acres on what is now the Rollandia Golf Center at 4990 Wilmington Pike, will present a more comprehensive plan for final approval.

Groundbreaking is expected in the first quarter of 2018.

The estimated completion date is planned for the second quarter of 2019, said the developer, Ian Guttman, Guttman Properties CEO.

Guttman Properties has 42 acres under contract to build a senior community, twin single-family detached homes and a multi-family rental community.

"We're excited to be working with the township administration to fulfill senior housing needs in the community," Guttman said in a prepared statement released Wednesday night.
