This renovation of an existing structure took full advantage of NJ Department of Community Affairs Downtown Living Grants and Federal Historic Preservation Tax Credits. Having purchased the building with the idea of providing rental housing within a few blocks from Newark’s Penn Station, this site took full advantage of its close proximity to an intensely developed commercial district. The apartments have been built to provide one and two bedroom units. Prior to completion the entire building was rented to Seton Hall Law School for use as student housing. This building had been vacant for over 15 years and had serious deterioration of many building components. Exterior facades had masonry pointed and cleaned, existing wood windows were repaired or replaced. A missing cornice was restored to its original appearance. Exterior restoration made this building an attractive and useful residential property.
