The developer of a proposed 800-unit residential complex in Morris Plains is suing the borough for allegedly failing to meet state obligations to provide affordable housing, according to Law360.
The lawsuit was filed in Morris County Superior Court on Jan. 29, Law360 reported.
M&M Realty Partners purchased land in August on the former Pfizer property to develop a mixed residential and retail complex. A representative of the Morris School District Board of Education said the complex had the potential to increase the borough's population by 25 percent.
The building process for the property was expected to be lengthy, as significant environmental work was needed on the property. The property is located in a flood plain on the west side of Route 53.
