Situated on the long-vacant site of the former Irvington General Hospital, 280 Park Place is the first major development in the Irvington Township in decades.
The five-story, 125,000-square foot building was developed by Hilltop Partners Urban Renewal and represents the first phase of a larger planned community, with construction of Phase Two expected to begin in 2020.
Said Irvington Mayor Tony Vauss at Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting: “The closure of Irvington General Hospital was devastating to our community, and this project is symbolic of Irvington’s resurgence. I am grateful to the developers for not only choosing to invest in our Township but for also delivering a transformative and world class project. This is only the beginning for Irvington.”
New Jersey Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver also lauded the project.
“280 Park Place marks the beginning of an ambitious development plan that will not only increase affordable and market-rate apartments,” said Oliver, who is also the commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and board chair of the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. “In place of a vacant hospital building, the new 280 Park Place will be infused with individuals and families who will become part of the community.”
