The once iconic landmark building once the home to The Coca-Cola Bobbling Company on Asbury Circle looks like it might have a new tenant after nearly a decade of standing vacant. An Aldi grocery store is being proposed to be built on the site which links Routes 35 and 66.
The building has not had a tenant since is was closed in 2011 when the company left the facility.
According to reports, the current property owner, M&M Realty Partners, has received a permit to demolish the old bottling plant. No building plans or application to build has been submitted to the planning board. But Neptune Business Administrator Vito Gadaleta has been quoted as saying that an Aldi store is being proposed on one of the sites of the property.
M&M Realty Partners is based in Piscataway. The demolition is approved and is moving forward, which is expected to begin in the next few weeks.
The German family-owned Aldi discount supermarket chain has over 10,000 stores in 20 countries. There are about 4,100 stores in Germany, 1,873 Aldi stores in the United States and 7,600 worldwide, with one store in Long Branch, one in Neptune, on in Brick and the newest location in Wall. The company also operates the Trader Joe’s food stores.
