The Middletown Township Board of Supervisors is planning to hear arguments related to building 600-unit residential apartments in Oxford Valley Mall. The meeting is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the municipal building.
Simon Properties, with developer CornerstoneTracy, is on the agenda as they try to change zoning near the old Boscovs. Attorney Denise Yarnoff, representing Simon, helped to introduce the plan at August’s meeting.
“The purpose of that is to allow for a residential development which will act as a catalyst for the rest of the mall and the future vision of the Simon Property Group,” Yarnoff said. “We’re very hopeful that it will act to revitalize and to reinvigorate the mall, and to do great things in the future.”
Co-owner of CornerstoneTracy David Della Porta told the board this is not unusual for old malls. The hope is to bring in new blood who will spend money at nearby shops and eateries.
“We believe that can work here.”
The municipal building is located at 3 Municipal Way in Langhorne.
