CEDAR KNOLLS, N.J. – The groundbreaking for a stand-alone building that will house two restaurants at Hanover Crossroads marks the final phase of construction for the 107,000-square-foot Morris County shopping center. IHOP and Mangiamo’s, an Italian eatery with catering services, will occupy the 8,650-square-foot structure, according to owner/developer Key Properties.

Located at 110 East Hanover Ave., at the signalized intersection of Ridgedale and East Hanover avenues, Hanover Crossroads is fully leased to a mix of national tenants. Old Navy and Famous Footwear opened at the property this fall, joining T.J.Maxx, HomeGoods, Five Below, Ulta Beauty, Auto Zone, QuickChek and MedExpress Urgent Care.

“Dining is such an important part of today’s retail experience, and the additions of IHOP and Mangiamo’s introduce that element at Hanover Crossroads,” said Key Properties’ Marc Schlussel, co-managing partner. “Ultimately, the mix we have established at this property will ensure its appeal as a one-stop option for area consumers for years to come.”
