Located at 722 Chancellor Avenue, the five-story mid-rise building offers a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom residential units with parking for residents earning at or below 60% of the area median income. Five of the 56 units are set aside for residents with special needs, who receive supportive services from the YMCA of Greater Newark. The Urban League of Essex County provides social services to all residents of the community. The NRP Group is developing the community in partnership with Adenah Bayoh, a local developer and entrepreneur who has been spearheading the redevelopment of Irvington General Hospital on Chancellor Avenue. Residents of the community enjoy Energy Star certified, modernly designed units equipped with a wide array of amenities including central heating and air conditioning, luxury vinyl flooring, energy efficient refrigerators, stovetops, ovens, and dishwashers, as well as high-speed internet access and intercoms. They will also have access to free on-site parking, a beautifully designed community center for programmed activities, fitness center, children's playroom, computer room, laundry facilities and an on-site management/leasing office.
By working in tandem with the Township and Adenah, this project will encourage the growth of, and investment in Irvington, while also enabling working families to continue contributing to its strong sense of community and sharing in the fruit of its resurgent economic prosperity.
