It's A Jungle Out There

While Plainfield has its hopes pinned on The Monarch, another project by the same company is in a bit of a bind.

Click here to read about The Savoy in Rahway, a condo development that may become rentals if developer Glen Fishman can't sell the units.

The Monarch, with a new senior center on the ground floor and three floors of condos above, is Fishman's project at 400 East Front Street. So far, Fishman has missed three stated deadlines for completion, which is now supposed to take place sometime this year.

The handsome lion above is in front of the former Thomas Furniture store on Park Avenue, which is one of three buildings targeted for redevelopment by Landmark Developers. There are many other plans in the works, but not much action. In days to come, Plaintalker hopes to do an overview of the various proposals and where they stand.

Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs usually gives an update on the status of the senior center/condo project when she visits the present senior center, which is in leased space at 305 East Front Street. Her next visit should be at 10:30 a.m. next Tuesday.
