A development team has purchased a site in downtown Dover with approvals in place to build 90 new luxury apartments on the parcel, in a transaction arranged by Florham Realty Group Inc.
According to the brokerage team, the property at 80 East McFarlan St. spans three-quarters of an acre and is the former home of two businesses, Attilio’s Restaurant and the Hibachi Buffet. A joint venture of Mahwah-based Crossroads Companies and Parsippany-based CrownPoint Group are now slated to develop the site, which has been vacant and severely underused for nearly a decade.
According to the developers, which tapped as Minno & Wasko Architects & Planners for the project, the completed development will have 90 luxury rentals and more than 5,000 square feet of interior and exterior amenity spaces. Residents will benefit from a location that is within walking distance of Dover’s downtown shopping district and train station, while the project will enhance the neighborhood and add new housing options to an underserved submarket.
The deal comes after Florham Realty in 2019 brokered the sale of the liquor license connected to 80 East McFarlan St., a local extension of Route 46.
