This is a rendering of what a redevelopment of the Hamilton West Shopping Center could look like. PROVIDED

New use proposed for Hamilton shopping center

“It’s a phased development that they’re proposing,” said Ed Wilson, an associate planner with the city. “But primarily, they’re proposing a mini-warehouse facility, which is inside and outside storage.”

That’s the first phase, he said. After that, developers on behalf of property owner Ayda Kach are looking to create commercial and retail lots elsewhere on the mostly vacant site, which includes the Golden Dragon restaurant and is located at 82 N. Brookwood Drive.

The meeting will be held 6 p.m. today, Aug. 6, in City Council Chambers, on the first floor of 345 High St.

Also to be discussed during the meeting will be a request by Wayne’s Garage at 1999 Pleasant Ave. in Lindenwald, seeking to expand the business.

One thing that may please people about the proposed shopping center change, according to the city, are proposed improvements to the parking lot.

“This shopping center is one of the properties that the city receives the most complaints about due to the condition of the parking lot,” according to a notification that was sent to residents near the property.

Part of the written plan involves fixing potholes and maintaining at least 80 parking spaces, according to Wilson.
