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.
