Office building planned for site of vacant landmark diner

A now-vacant landmark diner in southern New Jersey may soon be reborn as an office building that will house a fertility clinic.

Evesham Township officials say the three-story building is planned for the site near Routes 70 and 73 where the crumbling Olga’s Diner now stands.

If approved, the building’s principal tenant would be Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey.

Township officials have hailed the proposed project, which has been in planning for more than a year. Construction would likely start in the spring if the developer — Basking Ridge-based Genesis Property Management — can get the needed permits this year.

Built in 1959, Olga’s once attracted hordes of travelers headed to and from the Jersey shore. It was shuttered in 2008 after years of declining business and financial difficulties.
