Plans to bring a development consisting of two apartment buildings to a group of properties in East Orange are now able to move forward.
During a meeting on April 7, the East Orange Planning Board memorialized its March approval of an application from 111 Prospect Holdings, LLC calling for a development with 323 residential units at 111 Prospect Street, 38 Washington Terrace Lot, and a few neighboring properties, a notice of decision states.
The development firm, which is registered out of Lakewood, was granted preliminary and final major site plan approval with variances by the board.
The project is expected to include 224 one-bedroom units, 81 two-bedroom units, and 18 studios along with an outdoor pool, according to East Orange Comprehensive Planning Manager Joseph Bianco.
A document released by the City of East Orange regarding this development refers to plans for the “Prospect Building” with 163 units and the “Washington Building” with 160 units.
As Jersey Digs first reported in March, this proposal covers the old home of the Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest New Jersey. This area is within close walking distance of the Brick Church train station along with a stop on New Jersey Transit’s 41 bus to Newark Penn Station. In addition, the 94 bus between Bloomfield and Linden runs along Prospect Street.
