Groundbreaking Ceremony for Kilmer Homes in Edison Twp, NJ

07.01.2014 — The groundbreaking ceremony yesterday for Kilmer Homes in Edison Township, New Jersey celebrated the commencement of construction for a new 120-unit affordable apartment development designed by Kitchen & Associates. Being built on the former site of the United States Army’s Camp Kilmer, the project from its very inception has been aimed at providing a much-needed affordable housing component to the local community, giving precedence to both veterans and victims of the recent Superstorm Sandy.
In addition to the re-purposing and ultimate redevelopment of the Camp Kilmer site, the Kilmer Homes project will offer up a total of 88 apartments reserved for households with incomes falling at or below the 60% Area Median Income threshold, and will incorporate an additional 30 permanent supportive housing units for previously homeless families and disabled veterans.
The development partners for the Kilmer Homes project include The Edison Housing Authority, The Alpert Group, and Monarch Housing Associates—a statewide non-profit supportive housing development organization. The Alpert Group and the Edison Housing Authority will provide on-going property management services for the development. Triple C Housing Inc., a supportive services partner on the project, will provide case management for the homeless component, as well as coordinate additional support services which will be provided by a wide range of community groups who have partnered to serve the local homeless population and their immediate needs.

Kilmer Homes, when finished, is expected to be a vibrant mixed-income, mixed-population development successfully serving a wide range of households and families, simultaneously promoting tight community integration and support of ‘all’ of its members across the economic scale.
The development is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2014, with initial leasing expected to begin in January 2015.
