Reuten Associates and Metropolis Property Group announced plans on Aug. 17 for a luxury senior housing development in Closter, in Bergen County. The 195-unit structure will replace five obsolete, post-World War II-era manufacturing buildings located within the Reuten Corporate Park to create a modern, state-of-the-art senior housing community.
The Residences at Reuten Park is designed for independent living, assisted living and memory care. Amenities will include private outdoor social spaces, fountains, an outdoor dining courtyard, multiple indoor dining areas, a café, an outdoor swimming pool, a pond with an elevated wooden deck, a spa/salon and fitness center, cinema, game room, community gardens, fire pits and walking trails.
Rental units with studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments will be located on an approximately 6-acre property at 231 and 239 Herbert Ave. – within walking distance of downtown retail stores and restaurants including Closter Plaza, as well as the Closter Nature Center. The property is located 10 miles north of the George Washington Bridge in Bergen County.
The project is expected to be constructed in approximately 14 to 16 months, pending the Borough’s Zoning Board of Adjustment’s approval of the application.
“We believe that transforming the oldest portion of Reuten Corporate Park from a manufacturing center to a beautiful luxury senior housing community is the ‘highest and best use’ of our land,” said Mike Reuten, owner and managing partner, Reuten Associates. “It will beautify the neighborhood and add a significant asset to our community – benefiting seniors, families, neighbors and local businesses.”
