A developer is expected to present plans this week regarding a proposed six-story residential development in East Orange.

The properties at 82 and 86 Washington Street are where a building with 57 residential units could be constructed, according to site plans from Hoboken-based Nastasi Architects. The plans call for 35 one-bedroom units and 22 two-bedroom units along with amenity spaces and a rooftop terrace. One parking space per residential unit would be provided.

Developer 86 Washington Associates, LLC submitted this application back in May 2019. The company is scheduled to seek preliminary and final major site plan approval with multiple variances during the East Orange Planning Board’s virtual meeting this Wednesday, October 7 at 7:00 p.m., according to a public notice.

The site plans, which were publicly released in an online folder in advance of the hearing, associated Maurice Wolf and an address on Eisenhower Parkway in Livingston with 86 Washington Associates, LLC.

One of the properties on Washington Street contains a former parking lot while the other includes a vacant two-story building that was previously home to Jamas Children’s University. A December 2019 environmental information statement from Stonefield Engineering and Design, LLC noted that the development proposal calls for demolishing the existing 6,315-square-foot structure.

The site is located half a mile from New Jersey Transit’s Brick Church Station. The premises are also near the old Washington Street Business Center, which could be expanded and converted into a 90-unit development.

Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the East Orange Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.

  1. you guys keep asking about applications for these apartments on here…you need to contact the developer website or when details about the construction and scheduled completion you can apply and get all the information. please note that you will not find new construction development in any city for poor people they are either market rate apartments or high luxury with so they would go around spending or borrowing millions of dollars to construct under market value or in other words sub living condition apartment for people who are living below poverty line… thats why each city has city own buildings by the govenment for that but the problems with these places comes garbages, noice, ghetto people, loud music and nasty hallways with people hanging out and smoking….. so unfortunately progress dosent come with this kind of buildings… aim higher and strive… east orange has lots of low income housing as well as building for retirement such as the norman tower building which will be renovated of over 123 millinion dollars….
