for New Closter Plaza Shopping Center Moving at Full Steam
New plans for the shopping
center in Closter called Closter Plaza were submitted to the
town bord in the fall of 2013. The shopping center will be a
major anchor for Closter and will provide several new shopping
opportunities to Closter residents. The board overseeing the
project also hopes that the shopping center will be a draw for
shoppers outside of Bergen County.
The major anchor in the plaza will be Whole Foods, the organic-geared
mega food store which has locations around New Jersey but not
yet in Closter. The new shopping center will feature over forty
retailers, all of which will be geared toward Bergen County’s
key demographics. The county, which is one of the most sought
after in the state and in the greater New York City region at
large, has an average household income of $144,917 per year.
At present, the shopping center has five buildings, which in
the new plans will be trimmed down to four. The four buildings
will all be centralized into one unit. The land itself, which
is presently sixteen acres in size, will remain the same, albeit
with a new layout due to the new construction.
The overall appearance of the new shopping center will be polished,
with brick and glass facades providing a varied look for different
areas while still maintaining an overall cohesiveness across
the entire shopping center. The shopping center will not be
enclosed like a mall, but rather will provide outdoor access
to individual stores.
Closter Plaza was previously owned by Aspi and Bakhtaver Irani.
New development for the plaza had been attempted in the past
but was delayed due to the ownership. The property then went
into bankruptcy and was ultimately obtained by Edens & Avant.
Edens & Avant are South Carolina based mall developers that
focus on creating shopping centers within communities in across
the United States. Based on the deal struck for the site, Edens
& Avant will act as a managing partner and will hold a fifty-percent
interest in the shopping center.
Predictions from town board members are that the new life to
be brought into Closter Plaza will be a benefit to Closter at
large. The expectation is that the shopping opportunities available
at the plaza will draw shoppers from surrounding areas to Closter.
The shopping plaza is also an asset for those who might be considering
a move to Closter.
Closer is located in New Jersey’s Bergen County, which
is one of the nation’s most sought after real estate destinations.
Bergen County boasts some of the top schools in the United States
and several vibrant communities. Bergen County’s biggest
selling point for many of the professionals who choose to move
their families to the area is its proximity to New York City,
where many of the upper-middle class residents of Bergen County
are employed. Bergen County’s communities are a short
drive from the George Washington Bridge, which provides direct
access to New York City’s busy Manhattan borough.
