PARSIPPANY — 240 Littleton Road Parsippany, LLC., has applied to the Parsippany-Troy Hills Board of Adjustment to develop the property with one building as a 7-11 and one building for an unnamed tenant. They are seeking “C”, “D”, Preliminary and Final Major Site Plan approvals from the Board of Adjustment on Wednesday, March 7.

The application will build a building with a total square footage of 5,303. 7-11 will occupy 2,838 square foot and an unnamed tenant will occupy 2,654 square foot. The plans outlines a total of 31 parking spots, and will face Littleton Road.

The property will have an entrance and exit onto Parsippany Boulevard as well as Littleton Road.

The property at the corner of Parsippany Boulevard and Littleton Road is owned by the County of Morris and is not included in this project.

The property is currently owned by Fulton Bank of New Jersey. Previously Fulton Bank was constructing a bank branch on the property. In 2012, Fulton Bank applied to the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance for “Application to establish a branch office to be located at 240 Littleton Road, Parsippany.” The application was approved. Shortly thereafter, Fulton Bank started closing branches throughout New Jersey and the plans to open the Parsippany branch were abandoned.

Fulton Bank has offices in Madison, Lake Hopatcong and Rockaway. They have a network of community banks throughout New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Parsippany resident Pat Petracca has been requesting of the Township Council to pass an ordinance that would prohibit 24-hour businesses in residential area. 7-11 stores are open 24 hours a day.
