At a special zoning board meeting last week, Hopewell Township approved an application by Princeton Farmhouse LLC to convert an existing 25,000 square foot farmhouse, abutting a corporate office park, at 328 Carter Road into a catering venue for weddings, corporate parties and other large catered affairs — events up to approximately 300 on 2nd floor and slightly less on the first level.
The property would also be used for corporate offices and contain a commercial kitchen and a commissary kitchen to provide food services to the corporate campus employees.
The facility will be occupied by Max Hansen Caterer and will be used during specific times for catered events and a possible “grab and go” service for the adjacent office complex. There will not serve as a full-service restaurant.
The property will be expanded to include an addition on the northerly side of 1055 square feet to the first floor for lavatories and bride’s room and 2385 square feet to the second floor for pre-function and lobby space and a coat room. There would also be a second level deck or terrace of 1687 square feet.
