156,000 sf of retail plans to come to Lawrence
4100 Quakerbridge Road, a 17 acre site south of the Quakerbridge Mall was sold to Costco for $9.4 million this week. Costco’s plans for the site are 156,000 sf worth of retail space including: a liquor store, pharmacy, optical services section, tire sales & installation and a 16 pump gas station- all of which should provide employment to 200 people.
The town became aware of Costco’s interest in the site when the then owner, United States Land Resources of Morristown requested a zoning change for the piece of property, over two years ago. Originally it was zoned for senior housing, but the argument was made that highway commercial would mix well in the area and the planning board approved the change.
This store will be the only Costco in Mercer County.
