Maplewood Receives Eight Proposals to Develop Post Office Site

MAPLEWOOD, NJ – The township has received eight proposals for the redevelopment of the Post Office site on Maplewood Avenue, according to Township Administrator Joseph Manning.

As had been previously reported, Sept. 11 was the township’s deadline for submission of the proposals.

Proposals were received from:


RPM Development, LLC, Montclair


L+M Development Partners Inc., Larchmont, N.Y.


Wainco Realty, LLC, South Orange


Sharbell Development Corp., Robbinsville

Langan Development, Elmwood Park


Kander-Sechzer Architectural Partnership, Maplewood


J.G. Petrucci Co. Inc., Asbury

Murray Construction Co. Inc., Millburn

The Township Committee has stated that its intention is to review the proposals and choose a developer before the end of the year.  At this time, there are no plans to share the details of any of the proposals with the public, which has been the source of some controversy.

The lease of the property to the United States Postal Service comes to an end in November.
