Project Looks to Complete Redevelopment of
Former Car Dealership Site and Route 33 Intersection

After years of sitting idle, a recently approved project looks to accelerate the revitalization of a former Hamilton Square car dealership and a prominent town intersection.

In 2009, when the Hamilton Chrysler dealership was one of 800 dealerships across the nation to close, the property - along with the neighboring Patterson Chevrolet site - became a visible sight of vacancy along Route 33 - one of Hamilton’s busiest retail corridors.

But following efforts by town officials to attract interest and revitalize both properties, Hamilton is one step closer to seeing the intersection regain its vibrancy.

Last week, an application by Northeastern Commercial Properties LLC to redevelop the former Hamilton Chrysler site, was approved by Hamilton’s Planning Board.   

The plan calls for the construction of a 17,825 sq. ft. Aldi Grocery Store, a 4,317 sq. ft. Panera Bread equipped with a drive-thru, and over 7,945 sq. ft. for additional retail or service space.

Across the street, construction has visibly continued to progress at the former Patterson Chevrolet site, of which a Super Wawa will be the first step in the property’s redevelopment.   Following that, space for Auto Zone will be constructed alongside the Super Wawa. 

“Our administration has worked diligently to attract interest and encourage the revitalization of both former car dealerships.  We are pleased that this project will help reinvigorate the former Chrysler dealership and complement the ongoing redevelopment of the former Patterson Chevrolet site,” says Hamilton Township Mayor Kelly Yaede.
