9-acre site in Hunterdon, zoned for commercial, on market

Here’s something you don’t see on the market every day: 9 acres in Hunterdon County, zoned for commercial use and on a highly accessible parcel that backs up to Interstate 78 and offers outstanding visibility for signage.

The 9-acre development site, at 1450 Route 22 in Clinton, presents the rare opportunity to acquire a developable property in a prime Hunterdon County location, brokers Beth Chezmar and Erica Davidson of Lee & Associates said.

The offering — inclusive of a usable farmhouse — is being offered by a private ownership entity, they said.

“This site is truly a ‘diamond in the rough’ with multiple possibilities, and we are seeing strong interest from potential owner/occupiers and investors alike,” Davidson said. “1450 Route 22 is suited for a variety of future uses, from self-storage, light flex/manufacturing, animal care, sports training and recreation, among others.”

The property is accessible to public transportation and major roadways — including routes 22 and 31, and interstates 78 and 287 — and sits next door to the Hunterdon County YMCA.

The parcel obviously is centrally located between New York City and Philadelphia.

“From a commercial real estate standpoint, Hunterdon County remains one of the state’s best-kept secrets, but that is changing,” Davidson said. “Blending a rural charm with accessibility to shopping, dining, culture and major metropolitan cities, it is an extremely desirable place in which to live, work and grow a business. Recent investment activity, current development and the early interest we are seeing in the 1450 Route 22 site underscore its viability.”
