  4. 4. NEW JERSEY FUTURE4 Dear distinguished honorees and guests: Welcome to New Jersey Future’s 2014 Smart Growth Awards celebration, now in its 13th year. In that time the awards have grown steadily in prestige and importance, and are now a true avatar of the very best of growth and development in the Garden State. We were heartened to receive a large and very high-qual- ity group of entries for this year’s contest, a hopeful sign of better economic times and continued high-quality growth ahead. Our team of jurors, whose biographies are included in this program book, distinguished themselves by the time, insight and diligence with which they conducted an extremely competitive evaluation process. Their dedication is instrumental in maintaining the awards’ high quality, and we thank them for their expertise. This year’s winners encompass a wide range of initiatives – downtown revitaliza- tion; waterfront rebirth; repurposing of old buildings for new uses; the remaking of a public-housing project; a community center rising on a reclaimed brownfield; and a regional plan for improvements that will drive economic growth in a suburban county. All these projects represent efforts to keep New Jersey at the forefront of quality de- velopment and redevelopment. It is also our great honor to present the 2014 Cary Edwards Leadership Award to our friend and trustee, Joseph J. Maraziti Jr. Joe’s leadership and expertise on the State Planning Commission brought us a state plan that is still in use, and his work in the fields of environmental and redevelopment law can be seen every day as New Jersey becomes greener, cleaner and more vibrant. This awards program is immensely gratifying to all of us at New Jersey Future as we see the policies we research and for which we advocate so well implemented. We thank you for joining us tonight as we honor this year’s winners, and we invite you to join us going forward as we continue to work toward smart, sustainable growth. Sincerely, Peter Kasabach Executive Director

  7. 7. June 2002 marked the first Smart Growth Awards celebration. The annual event attracts state, county and municipal leaders, as well as community activists and professionals who are committed to bringing smarter growth to New Jersey. ABOUT THE ANTIQUE TILES New Jersey Future’s Smart Growth Awards are created with antique tiles made in and around the Trenton area at the end of the 19th century. They were made by Trent Tile, Providential Tile Works and the Robertson Art Tile Company, all of which manufactured decorative tiles for use in homes and offices. At its prime, Trent produced 8 million square feet of tile each year. New Jersey Future is proud to offer these awards as a reminder of the great things that will continue to happen in our state. The tiles were collected, restored and mounted by Marge Miccio of Artifacts Gallery, which offers a large collection of Trenton memorabilia. It is located at 1025 South Broad Street, Trenton, (609) 599-9081 and can be found online at artifactsgallerytrenton.com. New Jersey Future’s Smart Growth Awards honor adopted plans and approved and built developments that exemplify sound land-use practice through the implementation of smart- growth principles as embodied in the State Development and Redevelopment Plan. The awards shine a well-deserved spotlight on the municipal officials, developers, contractors, architects and corporations with the with the courage to initiate projects and growth patterns that help strengthen New Jersey’s economic, social and environmental future. Nominees are drawn from a statewide public nomination process launched in the fall of each year. The finalists are selected by an Awards Selection Committee of professional developers, architects, planners and redevelopment experts (see page 6). The winning projects are chosen following site visits and interviews with project leaders. Preference is given to projects that promote redevelopment and infill development in areas and centers designated for growth by the State Plan. In addition, winning projects are evaluated against the following smart-growth criteria: Near existing development and infrastructure Create or enhance connections to existing developments or plans Create or enhance a vibrant mix of uses (residential, retail, office) Protect or enhance open space, farmland, parks and critical environmental areas Increase the range of housing options available Create or enhance transportation choices Designs foster walkability and activities at the street level that encourage personal interaction Improve resiliency to natural hazards Respect community character, design and historic features Utilize green or regenerative design techniques and materials ABOUT THE SMART GROWTH AWARDS SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014

  11. 11. 11SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 Joseph J. Maraziti Jr. Partner Maraziti, Falcon & Healey LLP The Cary Edwards Leadership Award recognizes individuals who have an outstanding commitment to improving the quality of life and promoting smart growth in New Jersey through sustain- able land-use policy and practice. The recipients of this award are dedicated to strengthening communities by en- couraging redevelopment and develop- ment where infrastructure already ex- ists and by preserving and enhancing agricultural and natural resources. This year’s winner, Joseph J. Maraziti Jr. Esq., has for more than four decades built a prestigious practice and a sterling reputation in New Jersey environmental and redevelopment law. He has advised numerous public- and private-sector clients on environmental and infrastructure-related is- sues, and has successfully litigated a variety of mat- ters, some of them precedent-setting, involving rede- velopment and environmental laws and regulations. He has also worked tirelessly to guide New Jersey’s growth and development strategically, both in his practice and in his public service. After Mr. Maraziti graduated from law school, he joined his father’s general-practice firm, where he tried his first “pollution cases,” as they were known. The first of these cases led to the creation of the Rockaway Valley Region- al Sewerage Authority and the cleanup of the Rockaway River. Later litigation focused on claims stemming from the landmark federal Superfund legislation. In 1998, Governor Whitman appointed Mr. Maraziti to chair the State Planning Commission, in which ca- pacity he led the effort to adopt the State Develop- ment and Redevelopment Plan of 2001, a framework to ensure that development and redevelopment in New Jersey enhances the quality of life for all residents. Plan adoption was not easy. Stakeholder groups from all sectors – environmental, development, agricultural – were apprehensive and resistant, and it is in large measure a tribute to Mr. Maraziti’s skills as a nego- tiator and mediator that the commission was able to adopt a plan that responded to most of their concerns. The plan’s emphasis on redevelopment was also some- what prescient: At the time, there was more interest in suburbaniza- tion than reinvesting in the state’s older cities and towns, but that trend seems to have reversed itself during the past decade. He served as chairman of the commission until 2002, and the plan he shepherded into place remains in effect today. Since that time, Mr. Maraziti has played a leading role in the evolu- tion and maturing of environmental and redevelopment law in the state. Many clients now seek his help to re- develop properties that were once shunned – so-called brownfields sites. Mr. Maraziti has built a strong prac- tice providing both public and private clients with the appropriate legal tools to implement redevelopment and rehabilitation projects, helping to realize billions of dol- lars in investment in New Jersey’s cities and towns. Mr. Maraziti has long been active in professional and civic organizations. He was the founding chairman of the Morris County Bar Association Environmental Law Committee; he is a past chairman of Morris 2000; he has served on the Environment of the 21st Century Task Force of the New Jersey General Assembly; and has served on the New Jersey Supreme Court Com- mittee on Environmental Litigation. He is chairman of the Association of Environmental Authorities’ recently formed Ethics Committee, and he is an associate of the Environmental Law Institute. He serves on the board of directors of the Regional Plan Association and on the board of trustees of New Jersey Future, of which he has also been chairman. Today he works at his father’s tiger oak desk in his Short Hills office, surrounded by antique bottles, rocks and minerals, and by photos of his wife Claudette; his daughter Jackie and her fiancé Vince Monteleone; and his daughter Michele and her husband Mike and their son Jake Ryan. Mr. Maraziti continues to maintain a varied caseload that reflects the balancing act of mod- ern environmental law: practicable enforcement and realistic solutions, respecting not only the law but also the state’s long-term ecological health. CARY EDWARDS LEADERSHIP AWARD
  12. 12. NEW JERSEY FUTURE12 Nestled 12 miles from midtown Manhattan and situ- ated on the Hackensack River, the City of Hackensack boasts a diversity of neighborhoods, access to higher education facilities including Fairleigh Dickinson Uni- versity’s Metropolitan Campus and Bergen Community College, and three transportation facilities. However, as with many of New Jersey’s older cities, Hacken- sack’s downtown has struggled as businesses have ei- ther closed or moved and residents have followed. The city realized that if it wanted to re-establish itself as a regional des- tination, it would need to enhance its Main Street and its connec- tions to transportation. The result of that re- alization is the City of Hackensack Rehabili- tation Plan for the Main Street Area, adopted in June 2012. Encompassing 163 acres and 389 individual properties on 39 city blocks, the plan promotes a range of land uses including retail, restaurants, office, com- mercial, civic, and entertainment, along with a diver- sity of housing types, to create a mixed-use, pedestri- an-friendly downtown. One of the key objectives of the plan is to connect a series of neighborhoods with each other and with improved infrastructure, parks, plazas, open spaces and the city’s two NJ Transit rail stations and regional bus station. Critical components of the plan include innovative new zoning provisions for the downtown area that are intended to facilitate quality revitalization through: • Increased development flexibility and density, allowing permitted uses throughout the downtown; • Lower parking ratios and shared parking; • Architectural, neighborhood and rehabilitation design requirements; • Recommendations to create a two-way street system to replace the city’s existing one-way streets; • Implementation strategies, including municipal tools and mechanisms to promote revitalization. To encourage larger-scale development, the city de- vised two zoning classifications, both of which can occur anywhere in the redevelopment area. The “cat- alyst” classification allows for more intensive develop- ment, but requires a minimum project size of 400,000 square feet. This classification permits buildings of up to 14 stories, compared to five stories for a non- catalyst building, as well as lower parking ratios than non-catalyst development. Providing two development types has proven an effective market-based mecha- nism to incentivize smaller property owners to realize greater value from their properties by allowing them to be incorporated as part of larger projects. The city and the Upper Main Alliance Special Improve- ment District worked with city consultants to ensure coordination with the public, business and property owners. Early in the process, the SID conducted mul- tiple public workshops and helped the city create a steering committee to assist in public outreach. Steer- ing committee meetings, along with public workshops and meetings and a project website, provided multiple channels for continued information- and idea-sharing during the 18-month process. This collaboration re- sulted in strong support from the community—and no negative public comment when the plan was adopted unanimously in 2012.

  13. 13. 13SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 The opulent G.G. Green Opera House, built in 1880 by patent medicine tycoon and Civil War Colonel George Gill Green, once brought grandeur to the city of Woodbury and vibrancy to the heart of its downtown. The 1,100-seat facility, with its ornate Victorian archi- tecture, drew thousands of visitors in its heyday. The building’s luster had largely faded by 2001 when it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, and in 2002, in substantial disrepair, it closed its doors. The building’s future, and indeed that of the down- town, was still in doubt in 2011 when a rare earth- quake struck, threatening the building’s structural in- tegrity and knocking part of its façade into the street. Some called for the building’s demolition, but many in the community fought to save this treasured city land- mark, and through grassroots fundraising efforts raised $50,000 to kickstart a building preservation initiative. That same year, RPM Development stepped forward with plans to purchase the G.G. Green Building along with two adjacent, vacant buildings and create the G.G. Green Senior Residences, a mixed-use, afford- able residential complex for older adults with contigu- ous retail and community space. The innovative reha- bilitation-redevelopment project restored and adapted the historic building and replaced the other two build- ings with contemporary structures modeled after the original G.G. Green Building’s architecture. The G.G. Green Senior Residences provides 55 apart- ment units, restricted to residents 55 and older with an income at or below 60 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), with six units set aside for homeless veter- ans with incomes at or below 30 percent of AMI. In addi- tion to housing, the proj- ect features approximately 7,000 square feet of retail space and a 3,500-square- foot community room. The complex, which covers an entire block along South Broad Street, the city’s busi- est main street, also includes an outdoor courtyard to provide open space for residents. The project was constructed to minimize environmental impact and has achieved LEED Platinum certification, the highest level of green building awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council. The development is located near public transportation, including several NJ Transit bus routes and the proposed Glassboro-Camden light rail two blocks away. Residents of the complex will be within easy reach of many retail amenities, and to the Underwood Memorial Hospital, County Justice Com- plex, the public library, and numerous public parks. The project has stimulated substantial economic growth, including over $21 million in immediate economic output and an anticipated $2.3 million in ongoing economic output, as well as more than 120 full-time jobs and an estimated 13.5 full-time jobs an- nually going forward. The success of the G.G. Green Senior Residences shows what can be accomplished with coordination and dedication from many stakeholders. Support from the community, the commitment of Woodbury’s politi- cal leadership, strategic financing from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, and the vision of RPM Development Group have all combined to re- turn a once-grand opera house to its former glory and to bring renewed vibrancy to downtown Woodbury.  G.G.

  14. 14. NEW JERSEY FUTURE14 “In a dream, I saw a city invincible.” That excerpt from a poem by Walt Whitman – who lived, created and died in Camden – is etched in cement at Camden City Hall. And Camden did once seem invincible, with an abun- dance of industry and a strong middle class. However, after a long exodus of industry and jobs, Camden now conjures up for some a reputation for violent crime, steep unemployment, declining public health, inad- equate early child care and education, and overall decay. Yet The Salvation Army USA, armed with a be- quest of $1.6 billion from the estate of Joan Kroc, widow of McDon- ald’s founder Ray Kroc, could see a brighter fu- ture. In January 2014, The Salvation Army announced that it would award $59 million from the bequest to North Camden for the development of a Salvation Army Kroc Corps Community Center, one of 27 nation- wide. Through support from political and community leaders, The Salvation Army secured an additional $31 million to fund the project. Set in the city’s Cramer Hill neighborhood and sched- uled to open in October 2014, the 120,000-square- foot community center is constructed on a parcel of land directly adjacent to the Delaware River. It will pro- vide a variety of opportunities, including recreational, aquatics, healthcare, childcare, social services, educa- tional, senior, and spiritual programming, to an antici- pated 360,000 members of the community per year, including 12,000 children who live in Cramer Hill and adjacent North Camden. The community center plan also includes open spaces with ball fields and walking paths reconnecting the residents to their waterfront with its views of the Philadelphia skyline and Petty’s Island. City officials also hope that the community cen- ter will spur private development of affordable housing in the neighborhood. The first phase of the project completed in 2013, in- volved remediating 24 acres of the 100-acre former Harrison Avenue landfill site. Many local stakeholders, city officials, and the New Jersey Department of En- vironmental Protection (NJDEP) saw this as an ideal opportunity to begin remediation of a two-mile stretch of brownfields along the Delaware River of which the landfill was one part. The landfill site was also selected because of its proximity to bus routes and a proposed rail station, allowing easy transit access. The construction of the Kroc Community Center incor- porates green-infrastructure features such as aquifer recharging with constructed wetlands and bio-swales, recycled content in building materials, and energy-ef- ficient water, lighting and HVAC systems. As Walt Whitman knew, there is much potential in Camden that only needs heart, imagination, and the level of commitment that those involved in The Salva- tion Army Kroc Center are willing to invest, in order to realize the dream of a city invincible.

  15. 15. 15SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 The Borough of Fanwood led the redevelopment of its underutilized and outdated but transit-centered down- town by taking the lead and working directly with de- velopers and property owners to bring the heart of its community back to life. Today, the borough’s nearly- realized vision is a lively mix of new retail and residen- tial development combined with inviting new public spaces. This transit-oriented village offers many of the benefits of urban living, coupled with the appeal of a small town. The first hint of change came as the borough oversaw the refurbishment of its celebrated rail station. Next came enhancements to downtown sidewalks and the in- stallation of planters and what have become known as “Fanwood lamps.” As a finishing touch, the community raised funds for a new park and a four-faced Victorian- themed “Millennium Clock” at the intersection of the rail station and commercial downtown, in a “found” open space area created by closing off an unnecessary and unsafe entrance to a commuter parking lot. Residents and borough officials hoped that these pub- lic beautification efforts would entice private business owners to follow suit and beautify their own properties; when that didn’t happen, it became clear further action was needed. After establishing the one-block downtown as an area in need of redevelopment, borough officials secured a grant to hire a consultant to develop a building façade upgrade guidebook and a shared-parking strat- egy. Local government partnered with a Citizen Redevel- opment Committee to conduct public outreach, which included resident and merchant surveys, televised open public forums, and, ultimately, adop- tion of the Redevelopment Plan for Fanwood Downtown Block 64, that reflected the commu- nity’s aspirations. The plan in- cluded design guidelines and new zoning that encouraged res- idential, retail, commercial, and open public spaces all within the same downtown block. So far, the redevelopment has produced lovely new buildings in keeping with the historic buildings that characterize the community, as well as 24 units of af- fordable housing and additional contributions to the local affordable-housing fund. New residential options are diverse, ranging from rental apartments to condo- miniums and townhomes, all boasting immediate ac- cess to mass transit. In a town once known for “all those nail salons,” there is now also a rich mix of re- tail, leisure and restaurant uses, including a Pilates center, couture dress shop, craft store, and SAT prep center, as well as a variety of new eateries. Redevelopment has also been used to leverage infra- structure improvements. Through public/private part- nerships, officials were able to secure the installation of updated drainage systems to protect against future flooding in the downtown, and a new shared-use mu- nicipal parking lot to serve the community. In addition, the project enabled the remediation of two seriously degraded former toxic industrial sites. As Fanwoodians like to say, progress in redeveloping the downtown has occurred at a measured but suc- cessful pace. For a community that values its histor- ic roots and traditional charm, it’s clear that now it wouldn’t have things any other way.

  16. 16. NEW JERSEY FUTURE16 “Two cents from 2 percent” was the goal of the New- ark Department of Economic & Housing Development when it launched the Newark Riverfront Revival (NRR) in 2008, with the ob- jective of reconnecting the city with its earli- est riverfront roots. The NRR’s mission was to bring the city’s growth closer to the edge of the Passaic River, and to bring the river’s recreational and economic development benefits to the city and its resi- dents. Planners wanted at least 2 percent of Newark’s total population, or 5,600 people, to have a voice in designing a future for their riverfront. Residents were encouraged to take part in collaborative “walkshops,” boating tours, outreach events and public meetings. One landmark outcome of this initiative was the New- ark and Essex County Riverfront Park. In 2010, in partnership with Essex County, Ironbound Community Corporation (ICC), the Trust for Public Land, and many other partners, the city began construction of the 15- acre park, which features a 12-acre athletic complex, an extensive walking and biking trail, a floating boat dock, a boardwalk, and passive recreation areas. Serving an area of 50,000 people and just 10 minutes from Newark Penn Station, the park connects two neigh- borhoods—downtown Newark and Ironbound – and of- fers healthy lifestyle options for residents and commut- ers in an area that once contained less than a half-acre of open space per 1,000 residents. The mile-long riv- erfront walking trail and park features a bright orange boardwalk made of recycled lumber. Strollers, cyclists, skaters, and joggers are now welcomed to a part of the city that once discouraged pedestrians. The park also has several ecological foci, and native birds and fish have recently begun returning to their former habitat. Riverfront Park offers a hint of what is to come for the five-mile-long riverfront. The Newark’s River: Public Access & Redevelopment Plan envisions future devel- opment for 250 acres running through Newark’s Iron- bound and downtown and into its northern boundary with Belleville. The plan updates Newark’s municipal development regulations along the riverfront and re- places 50-year-old zoning regulations, originally cre- ated for industrial purposes, so that public access is encouraged and valuable, people-friendly urban spac- es can thrive through mixed uses and open areas. The plan incorporates five land-use zones permitting res- idential, commercial, retail, industrial, and open-space uses, and allows up to 30-story building heights to en- courage development near public transportation hubs. Residential uses will now be permitted in lower Broad- way north of the Broad Street Station, where transit ac- cessibility makes residential development important. The guidelines and requirements of the redevelopment plan, coupled with the public/private initiatives that created a waterfront park, will ensure that Newark gets the riverfront it deserves.

  17. 17. 17SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 Burlington Township’s Springside School opened its doors to the community’s children as a one-room schoolhouse in 1916. The oldest public building in the township and a fixture on the National Register of Historic Places, the quaint schoolhouse was expanded in 1920 and again in the 1950s as the community’s population grew. But the schoolhouse closed its doors in 2007, a victim of functional and physical obsoles- cence, conditions that mirrored circumstances plagu- ing the surrounding community. Substantial private marketing efforts failed to revive it. Now new life has been breathed into the building and its surrounding community, thanks to an imaginative redevelopment plan that combines the forces of the township, private enterprise, and a nonprofit entity. The plan calls for the renovation and adaptive reuse of the school building as safe and pedestrian-friendly af- fordable housing for senior citizens and residents with special needs. The developers, a joint-venture partnership compris- ing the nonprofit Moorestown Ecumenical Neighbor- hood Development, Inc. (MEND), which develops and manages affordable housing complexes in South Jer- sey, and the for-profit Conifer Realty LLC, have created a total of 74 units of affordable housing, including 60 units of senior housing and 14 units set aside for people with mental illnesses. These residents will be supported by the Lester A. Drenk Behavioral Health Center, a 60-year-old nonprofit organization serving the region. The complex features a community room, laundry facilities, a fitness room, and a library. The building also provides open space and landscaped ar- eas, including a patio and gazebo. Burlington Township demonstrated its commitment to this project by deeding the property to co-developer MEND at no cost, and providing a Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) agree- ment. The township also provided additional fi- nancing with a Municipal Housing Trust Fund con- tribution commitment. Since the school is being preserved, the develop- ment was eligible for historic tax credits. Addi- tional financing included a conventional construc- tion loan from TD Bank, as well as low-income housing tax credits and a per- manent mortgage through the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Burlington Township also provided a federal HOME partnership loan. It has been several years since children’s voices last rang through the corridors of the Springside School. Now a dedicated consortium of public, private, and nonprofit interests has converted it into affordable housing for senior citizens and residents with special needs, proving once more that Springside School will always have its doors open to those who need it most.

  18. 18. NEW JERSEY FUTURE18 In 2011 the state of New Jersey released a draft up- date to its existing State Development and Redevelop- ment Plan, called the State Strategic Plan. It proffered criteria for determining what kinds of development or preservation investments should be made in vari- ous types of places. Somerset County, long known for strong regional planning leadership and close co- operation with its municipalities, immediately began using and modifying those criteria, and adding some of its own, to identify “areas for growth, agriculture, open space conservation and other appropriate designations.” The resulting Somerset Coun- ty Investment Framework uses these criteria to evalu- ate the ability of existing cen- ters and employment nodes to accommodate additional growth; to confirm the importance of areas identified in agricultural development and open space plans for resource protection, preservation and restoration; and to identify neighborhoods where the enhancement of ex- isting community character would be of highest priority. The county was able to generate its own map, based on these criteria, that identified these different areas. As a next step in advancing this framework, the county began to look for specific places that would require var- ious kinds of investments in order to enable different kinds of growth. The resulting study, Supporting Prior- ity Investment Through Access and Mobility Improve- ments, was a three-phase project that, through exten- sive public outreach and a thorough technical analysis, identified seven pilot sites in the county where land- use changes and transportation improvements could be implemented to spur investment in and reuse of underutilized, underperforming or vacant sites. One of the hallmarks of both plans is the extent to which the county reached out to each of its munici- palities to secure their input and support. As a result, the municipalities have aligned their growth plans with the two reports. It contains an implementation strategy for each that prioritizes recommendations and identi- fies partner agencies that can provide implementation assistance. Recommendations range from roadway and transit projects to bicycle and pedestrian improve- ments to land-use and zoning changes. The strategies and recommendations focus on: • Sites that were in already-developed areas and iden- tified as priorities in local municipal plans as well as in the county’s Comprehensive Economic Develop- ment Plan. • Zoning changes that recommended a mixed-use approach to the reuse of the sites and promoted a range of housing types. • Reuse and redevelopment aimed at limiting or cur- tailing new development in greenfield settings. • Sites that were identified as good opportunities for multi-family development. • Multi-modal improvements ranging from sidewalks and bicycle improvements to roadway/intersection improvements to new transit services. • Sidewalks and other bicycle and pedestrian infra- structure improvements.

  19. 19. 19SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 19SMART GROWTH AWARDS 2014 Known as the “nation’s first seaside resort,” Long Branch was from the 1870s until the 1920s a major destination for vacationers from New York and north- ern New Jersey. But the construction of the Garden State Parkway during the late 1940s and early 1950s lured many of those beachgoers further south, and a devastating fire in 1987 that destroyed the city’s land- mark amusement pier and adjoining amusement park removed its last remaining draw for tourists. Woodrow Wilson Homes, a public housing develop- ment consisting of brick two-story barracks style build- ings, was constructed during the 1950s. Built campus style, with most apartments facing into the center of the site toward other buildings rather than toward pub- lic streets, the site offered limited access and mini- mal connectivity to the surrounding neighborhood. The site itself was also a topographic bowl that collected stormwater runoff from the surrounding area; during particularly wet spring thaws the middle of the site would flood, stranding tenants in their apartments and forcing the Housing Authority to turn off the central heating plant, located in a basement and vulnerable to flooding. Now the 14-acre site has been redeveloped to provide new, mixed-income rental housing, targeted to residents earning between 30 and 80 percent of area median in- come, a larger income spread than was accommodated in the former public housing site. The two large super- blocks of the former site have been broken up into smaller blocks with a grid of new streets and sidewalks, in order to increase walkability and to re- connect these homes to the surrounding community. Many building design elements are evocative of the grand beach resort hotels of Victorian-era Long Branch, and the housing styles are reminiscent of the gracious single and twin homes that still can be found in many of Long Branch’s neighborhoods. Each apartment has its own front door and front porch to provide “eyes on the street” and connection for residents to their public space. The first two phases are complete and occu- pied; Phase III units are currently under construction. The redevelopment team also addressed the site’s stormwater management issue not just as an engineer- ing problem but as a landscape amenity and an educa- tional tool. None of the surrounding streets have storm- water pipes deep enough below ground to allow outfall from the redevelopment site, so stormwater needed to be managed entirely on site. The ground floors of buildings were designed to sit above the flood line, and a central rain garden was created to showcase storm- water management best practices and as public open space. The rain garden, along with two other infiltra- tion basins on site, provides short-term storage without flooding for a 500-year rain event, and serves as a “wet meadow” that provides wildlife habitat.
