And here’s a bird’s eye view of the project so far…
The cleared area in the center of the frame, to the left of the completed warehouse, is the site of the second warehouse, which will be oriented perpendicular to the first. This warehouse is being built on the former 104-acre Fillit property. There is a 60-acre landfill on this site that will be capped in accordance with NJ DEP regulations. Note Rt. 73 at the bottom of the frame and the Pennsauken/Rt. 73 Light Rail Station in the upper left just across Pennsauken Creek.
The Borough is already receiving $1 MILLION in fees annually from the owner of the first, completed warehouse (constructed on the former 65-acre Palmyra Flea Market property). The second warehouse as noted above has just broken ground. The date of the Groundbreaking Ceremony for this warehouse will be announced later this month! This second warehouse will pay the Borough an additional $1 MILLION annually!
The 31-acre wooded area at the rear of the site adjacent to the Cove will be dedicated to the Borough and will remain open space for eagle foraging and to connect the trail system in the Palmyra Cove Nature Park.
In the northwest corner of the site, not visible in the picture, sits the parcel on which the 102 affordable housing units will be constructed. Construction of the homes, surrounded on three sides by the Palmyra Cove Nature Park, will begin this October and is scheduled to be completed by December 2024.
