Construction starts on Woodhaven Plaza in Old Bridge, N.J.

Old Bridge, N.J. -- Construction and leasing are now under way on Woodhaven Plaza, a new neighborhood shopping center in Old Bridge, N.J.

Old Bridge-based R.J. Brunelli & Co. serves as exclusive leasing agent for the center, which will ultimately contain over 118,000 sq. ft. of space divided between four buildings. The property will serve as the retail component of Woodhaven Village, a planned residential community that already contains a mix of over 350 single-family detached homes, townhouses and apartments, as well as recreational areas. Both the retail and residential areas are being developed by Atlantic Realty of Woodbridge, N.J., which plans to build approximately 1,600 homes on the 1,454-acre site.

Leases are currently out for review with a fast-food chain, liquor store, hair salon, daycare center and martial arts studio. Other uses being targeted for the site include a small-scale supermarket, fitness center, dollar store, bank, dry cleaners and an independent pharmacy.
