Residents have been expressing concern on the Nextdoor discussion forum regarding a developer’s plans for the property on the corner of Coastal Highway at Holland Glade Road outside Rehoboth. This is the lot where Tomato Sunshine used to be, adjacent to the Tanger Outlets, Rehoboth Crossing and the Epworth United Methodist Church. For details, see this Board of Adjustment notice.
The first plan the developer submitted was for commercial use only with 45,000 square feet of retail space to include the 14th Ironhill Brewery and another Royal Farms. The applicant now seeks an exception to build 96 apartments. See the Sussex County meeting minutes from the original plan. Here is the site plan and the application.
