WEST ORANGE, N.J. — The Alpert Group LLC has broken ground on a 65-unit affordable seniors housing community in West Orange, approximately 20 miles west of Manhattan.
Located at 46 Mount Pleasant Ave., the project will be situated in the town’s central business district, adjacent to the town hall, police facility, and Renna House senior apartments. The five-story building will include one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, on-site parking, modern amenities and age-friendly features. Five units are reserved for formerly homeless residents.
The income-restricted community is helping to satisfy West Orange’s affordable housing obligation, and is partially funded by the NJHMFA Affordable Housing Production Fund.
The project is scheduled for completion in late summer 2024.
Financial partners include New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, Enterprise Community Partners, TD Bank, Essex County and the Township of West Orange.
