PLAINFIELD, NJ — The Housing Authority of Plainfield (HAP) broke ground on a $19.3 million project Thursday to celebrate the new construction of Elmwood Square, an ambitious redevelopment plan that will bring 58 new apartments to the community. The ceremony took place in partnership with the City of Plainfield, the Premier Community Development Corporation (PCDC), the County of Union, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and The Alpert Group.
Elmwood Square will be a 58 unit townhouse design, with 43 2-bedrooms and 15 3-bedrooms, on 3.68 acres. The apartment complex will have individual entrances in a design that is very conscious of defensible space, new urbanism design, eyes on the street concepts, open space, passive recreation, and a free-standing community building which has a community room, office space, and maintenance space. There will also be supportive housing in the design, and 5 percent of the units meet 504 requirements. All first floor units are handicap adaptable. All units will have Section 8 project-based assistance.
Randall M. Wood, Executive Director of the Housing Authority of Plainfield stated,
“We have been dedicated to fulfilling the need for more affordable housing in our community and have been working diligently to replace the outdated Elmwood Gardens public housing project for more than seven years.” He added, “In partnership with HAP’s qualified nonprofit arm, Premier Community Development Corporation, we are making this vision a reality.”
