Earl's project, which was presented to the Halfmoon Planning Board this week for the first time, is named the One-Four-Six Marketplace, a shopping complex off the northeast corner of the intersection of Route 146 and Old Route 146, opposite a Lowe's.
The total retail space would be 112,500 square feet in a 20-acre commercially zoned complex.
The plans call for at least one full-service restaurant, a fast-food restaurant with a drive-thru area, three retail buildings, three office buildings, and a bank with a drive-thru. They would be served by a 798-space parking lot, plus green space.
Primary access is planned from Route 146. Initial plans call for modifications to Route 146 and Old Route 146 with a new road providing vehicle access into the shopping center. The north side of Route 146 would be widened to add an additional lane for westbound traffic that. A right-turn lane into the retail center would be added to Old Route 146, and a secondary entrance would be added off Cemetery Road. Such road changes will require approval by the state Department of Transportation.
No specifics are mentioned in the plans as to prospective tenants.
