The construction of a 25,000 square-foot mixed-use building has finished in the historic downtown section of Maplewood, New Jersey.
Located at the intersection of Baker Street and Maplewood Avenue, 104 Baker encompasses 11 rental units and 3,737 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Designed by UHL Architecture in Orange, New Jersey, the building contains eight two-bedroom and three one-bedroom open-concept apartments, as well as on-premises parking, electric car-charging stations, and an indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace.
Deugen Development, LLC (Deugen) partnered with Iron Ore Properties on the 104 Baker project, which is situated 20 miles from Midtown Manhattan in the Lower Essex County township.
“The infill redevelopment of this former gas station resulted in the delivery of a high-quality, upscale property offering immediate-neighborhood access to a transit-friendly, vibrant downtown district,” said Eric Gormeley, Deugen’s chief executive officer. “Pride in our craft is rooted in delivering exceptional service and construction that retains long-term curb appeal and property performance while also enhancing the immediate neighborhood. We are pleased with 104 Baker’s end product, which was made possible by a close public official/private developer collaboration.”
“From the pre-development planning phase right through to the final touches, our entire team worked in close collaboration with the Maplewood Village Alliance to ensure 104 Baker reflects and honors the current streetscape while extending the vibrant sight lines of the neighborhood,” said Josh Sternberg, principal of Iron Ore Properties. “We were able to partner with and incorporate the alliance’s feedback to successfully deliver Maplewood’s newest residential and retail lifestyle center to enhance Maplewood’s iconic city center.”
