Planning—Orange, New Jersey
HOPE VI Redevelopment Plan: A Transit Village
Jonathan Rose Companies served as the Program Manager for the planning of the Housing Authority of the City of Orange's “HOPE VI Redevelopment Plan: A Transit Village.” On behalf of the Housing Authority, we initiated a participatory planning and design process with stakeholders and residents in the City of Orange in preparation for submittal of a successful Transit Village application to the state of New Jersey, and a HOPE VI Revitalization Application to HUD.
The program that we designed involves the demolition of 140 units of public housing, construction of new mixed-income rental and for-sale housing, acquisition of land formerly zoned commercial and/or industrial, relocation of residential and commercial tenants, and the provision of a case-management centered social service program for very low income families. In addition to new housing construction, the Redevelopment Plan focuses on creating a pedestrian friendly environment, improving the community's access to the Orange NJ Transit Station, and new streetscape and infrastructure improvements.
