Phase 2 plan for Jackson Adventure Crossing to be discussed


JACKSON – The Jackson Planning Board will hold a special meeting on July 27 at Jackson Memorial High School, Don Connor Boulevard, to hear details about Phase 2 of the Jackson Crossing 2/Adventure Crossing project.

Developer Vito Cardinale of Cardinale Enterprises has approval to build Jackson Crossing 2/Adventure Crossing on a 75-acre site on Route 537 between Interstate 195 and Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson.

Large-scale projects such as this have a General Development Plan which describes the concept of what is being proposed. Specific elements of the project require a site plan application to be filed at the time they are proposed.

On July 27, the applicant will seek preliminary and final major site plan approval to construct warehouses and/or a recreation facility under one of two alternatives:

• Alternative No. 1 proposes three warehouses totaling 1.18 million square feet;

• Alternative No. 2 proposes two warehouses totaling 735,100 square feet and a 450,000-square-foot recreation building.

Phase 2 was initially planned to include the construction of two hotels.

Phase 1 of Jackson Crossing 2/Adventure Crossing broke ground in July 2018. Phase 1 is expected to include an indoor sports and entertainment venue (party rooms, an arcade, laser tag and two sports bars) and an outdoor athletic complex.
