Development may be in store for a site located along a busy thoroughfare in Essex County.

A residential project could come to 448 and 452 Scotland Road in Orange near Mountainview Avenue. This roughly 120,000-square-foot development proposal calls for 87 residential units, according to Chaim Jakobovits of Trillium Equities, who noted that there would be five stories of apartments atop two stories of parking.

Renderings from RISE Architecture NJ that were released by the developer illustrate that terraces could be included throughout the building. The proposed pricing of the units has not yet been released.

Back in November 2019, the Orange Historic Preservation Commission approved a resolution granting a certificate of appropriateness for the proposed demolition of the Alberona Iron Works building and multi-family house on the premises, according to municipal records.

This site is located across the street from New Jersey Transit train tracks and is a few blocks away from the Highland Avenue station, though fewer trains stop there compared to other stations in the vicinity such as South Orange and Brick Church.

Several development projects have been proposed or completed in recent years in this section of Orange, but most, such as Hat City Lofts and Harvard Printing Apartments, have involved properties on the western side of the train tracks in the Valley neighborhood.
