Ted R. Green Senior Residences

The East Orange Housing Authority, which already owned and operated nearly 250 residential units in one of New Jersey’s most populated areas, required additional space to provide affordable housing to residents, as well as renovated office space for the Authority’s staff. After acquiring two properties adjacent to their existing office building, they retained DMR to examine building options for additional units on the land they owned.

DMR first completed a feasibility study, which determined new construction was the most feasible and efficient solution. DMR then continued with the programming and design of the new, 61,000 SF, mixed-use building which provides 52 one-bedroom and 8 two-bedroom units, with 15 units set-aside and marketed to homeless persons and several units designed to accommodate the needs of residents with disabilities.

The building also includes 8,000 SF of administrative offices for the East Orange Housing Authority, 1,755 SF of indoor community space, and 1,400 SF of outdoor space.
