Walter G. Alexander Village Master Plan Orange, New Jersey

Kitchen & Associates, working with the Housing Authority of the City of Orange, and local residents and stakeholders, developed a master plan targeting the revitalization of the Walter G. Alexander Court development – a public housing site known as a blighted eyesore in an otherwise stable residential neighborhood. The Master Plan builds off of the site location in Orange’s Transit Village District to reinforce connections with nearby destinations such as the business district, train station, parks and other local amenities. Existing high-rise buildings were replaced with a variety of new, medium-density, mixed-income family and senior housing opportunities configured in a way that promotes a safe, well-connected, walkable and attractive community.
