Members of the public will soon get a chance to weigh in regarding a proposal to bring a five-story development to a group of properties near Orange’s main drag.
The Orange Planning Board is scheduled to hear plans for 57, 63, 65, and 69 North Day Street during its virtual meeting on Monday, December 21, according to the meeting agenda.
An application for preliminary and final site plan approval regarding the proposed 72-unit development was first submitted in October on behalf of North Day Development, LLC, a company registered out of Bushwick, Brooklyn. The application’s disclosure of ownership associates Naftoly Weber, Lazer Derbarmdiger, and Moses Sander with the firm.
North Day Development, LLC is listed in the application as the contract purchaser of the parcels, which include a parking lot, a three-story building, and houses situated between Main Street and White Street.
Revised plans from Inglese Architecture + Engineering that were submitted by the developer’s attorney to the City of Orange Township on December 7 show that this project would include eight studios, 20 one-bedroom units, 12 one-bedroom units with dens, and 32 two-bedroom units if approved. Parking, a second floor “common outdoor roof terrace,” and private terraces are also envisioned.
The meeting on December 21 is scheduled to begin over Zoom at 7:30 p.m.
This is one of a number of developments to be proposed recently for lots near Orange’s main train station.
For instance, a 201-unit project by a firm associated with Russo Development is in the works for a site on Lincoln Avenue while a 209-unit complex that also involves Russo called Vermella at Orange Station is being constructed on Crane Street. These projects are in addition to previously completed developments such as Linc at Orange Station and 50 & 55 South Essex.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to be heard by the Orange Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
