MONROE – An application to convert a hotel under construction next to the New Jersey Turnpike into an independent supportive living facility for older adults was denied by the township’s Zoning Board of Adjustment.

The board voted 6 to 1 to deny the application at its Aug. 31 meeting. 

Hotel Investors, whose managing member is Vivek Mehta of Hillsborough, applied to the zoning board for a variance relief to convert the four-story building to a senior living facility with 106 residential units.

A use variance was required because the property is located in the township’s Light Industrial Zone with frontage on Interchange Plaza and Abeel Road. 

Peter Klouser, attorney for Hotel Investors, declined to comment Wednesday.

The property is split between Monroe and South Brunswick, with the structure within Monroe’s borders. The plan would have also needed South Brunswick zoning approval.
