Wegmans is coming to the area.
Hanover Township will be the home of a brand-new branch of the upscale supermarket, according to the Mack-Cali Realty Corporation.
Wegmans Food Markets Inc. will rent an undeveloped site at Sylvan Way and Ridgedale Avenue. Should the project obtain all necessary government approvals, the company will build a 140,000 square foot store.
No projected dates for construction or the store opening were provided.
Mack-Cali said in a statement that it intends to lease the remainder of the site—about 40,000 additional square feet—to other retailers.
“A supermarket of this caliber will be a welcome addition to Hanover Township and the surrounding towns in Morris County," Mack-Cali President and CEO Mitchell E. Hersh said in the company statement. "This was a great opportunity to put our strategically located land bank to use in a diverse manner.”
Wegmans currently has seven New Jersey locations in Bridgewater, Cherry Hill, Manalapan, Mt. Laurel, Ocean, Princeton and Woodbridge.
