Developer will not settle
The Times (Trenton, N.J.), September 22

HAMILTON, N.J. – The Robertson Douglas Group will not drop its two year-old suit against the township despite a recent change approved by the planning board to permit temporary vehicular access to a piece of land near Route 130. The land is located behind the proposed 1.2 million-square-foot Hamilton Marketplace. Officials had hoped that granting access to the landlocked parcel would persuade the company to drop its suit. But the Monmouth County-based developer will pursue the legal claim and has no plans of dropping it because of the board's action. In October 1998, Robertson Douglas sued Hamilton, claiming the planning board unjustly rejected its plan to build a senior housing complex on 55 acres of the land, which is zoned for research and development use.
