Massive New Shopping Center Approved by Lakewood Planning Board

A huge new shopping center on Avenue of the States consisting of 3 buildings with a total of 25 stores was approved Tuesday night by the Lakewood Planning Board.

The approved plans call for 116,000 square feet of new retail shopping space, as well as 597 parking spaces to accommodate store patrons.

The shopping center will be located just south (closer to Pine Street) of the existing shopping center whose northern edge begins with the Chase Bank on the corner of Cedarbridge Ave. and Avenue of the States.

Interestingly, the now-approved shopping center is at the same location where BMG proposed building a slightly larger mall – a project that was eventually scuttled as residents complained about the yeshiva being involved in retail development.

There were no public complaints about the new mall at Tuesday’s hearing.

  1. I personally have never shopped at Avenue of the States, never even drive near there. I do not understand the need for so many shopping venues here. I was fine with the way Lakewood was 25 years ago, before the building boom.

    • I hope you understand that as the community grows there is a need for more stores and a need for poeple to make parnasah !!

  2. One group doesn’t spend money, and the rest of Lakewood will rob it blind, the only stores that will make it will be involved in shady overseas money transfers, that’s the history of the area, like it or not.

  3. WHY MAKE STORE?? THERE HARDLY ANY MONEY FOR SHOPPING, WHY NOT MAKE HOUSE FOR THE PEOPLE THAT NEED A PLACE TO LIVE ? THAT THE RENT WILL BE $500 , OR $800 PEOPLE ARE LIVING THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY BECAUSE THERE IS NO PLACE. FIX THE STREET CLEAN UP THE TOWN LAKEWOOD LOOK LIKE A Pigs die ! SIzwake need to be done ..
