One of the largest apartment buildings to be proposed for Orange in recent memory could be approved as early as next week.
A developer called VA 100 M, LLC sent plans to Orange’s municipal government for a six-story project at 92, 96, 100, 106, and 112 Main Street along with 13, 15, 21, and 27 Prince Street, according to a notice of hearing.
If approved and built, the complex would include 307 apartments and 367 parking spaces, the notice says. Five dozen of the parking spaces would reportedly be “for use of future development within 500′ of the property,” but it is not yet clear which future development.
This plan comes as numerous other developments are being constructed or proposed in Orange at a rate not seen in the Essex County city in decades. However, unlike the other projects, this development would actually be situated closer to the Brick Church train station in East Orange than to Orange’s two train stations.
Located near Orange’s Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the Main and Prince Street properties are primarily residential and it is not yet clear how much demolition would take place should the proposal advance.
VA 100 M, LLC is scheduled to go before the Orange Planning Board during a Zoom meeting on Monday, November 29, to request preliminary and final site plan approval with building coverage, setback, and unit size variances, the notice says.
Note to readers: The dates that applications are scheduled to go before the Orange Planning Board and other commissions are subject to change.
