Former Nabisco factory site in Fair Lawn approved to become a 644,000-square-foot warehouse


The Fair Lawn Planning Board gave the green light for a new warehouse to be built at the site of the former Nabisco plant.

A unanimous vote happened after 11 p.m. to approve a new building for a warehouse at the former plant on Route 208. The building has sat vacant for more than two years and was supposed to be torn down in the spring.

According to the planning application, the proposed warehouse will measure 644,000-square-feet and include more than 100 tractor-trailer bays.

No one has given a timeline for how soon the building could be demolished.
