Dr. Walter G. Alexander Village Family Housing (Phase I) Orange, New Jersey

Much-Needed Revitalization for One New Jersey Community
Walter G. Alexander Village is dedicated to providing high-quality, affordable housing opportunities for families, and is expected to act as a catalyst for the redevelopment of this once-distressed Orange, New Jersey neighborhood and surrounding community. Working off of a master planning process that was also led by K&A, the initial family housing component (Phase 1) of Dr. Walter G. Alexander Village consists of four three-story buildings, offering a total of 66 new units of affordable family residences. Designed to blend seamlessly into the surrounding neighborhood, Phase I offers the local community a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations in two-story townhouses over one-story flats—each with individual entries either fronting the street or a courtyard.

Phase II was financed and completed concurrently with Phase I, and provided another 49 units of affordable housing – this time for seniors in an elevator-serviced 3-story building. The final on-site Phase III development was completed in the summer of 2016, and added 42 additional units of family/workforce housing, plus a 4,000 SF community center.

The new Dr. Walter G. Alexander Village neighborhood represents the beginning of what is expected to be a long-term process aimed at redeveloping the immediate area and reinvigorating the local economy.
