Fair Lawn municipal officials joined principals of Kushner this week for a groundbreaking ceremony signifying the start of construction on a new development that will bring 307 new luxury rental residences for those 55 and older.
Located at 19-00 Pollitt Drive, the four-story building will rise on a site that is currently home to a vacant office building. The existing structure will be razed and the property repositioned to accommodate the new building, which will feature a mix of well-appointed one- and two-bedroom apartments and a full suite of resort-like indoor and outdoor amenities. The development will also include 46 apartments dedicated to age-restricted affordable housing.
“This development will transform an underutilized property into a high-end residential offering that will provide a new level of luxury in this area while filling a critical need in Fair Lawn,” Michael Sommer, executive vice president – development and construction at Kushner, said. “We worked closely with Mayor (Kurt) Peluso, the borough council and the planning board on a shared vision to create more housing opportunities in town for active adults. We appreciate their support and guidance and are delighted to break ground today on what will be an important community asset for years to come.”
Expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2025, the project aligns with the borough’s efforts to redevelop properties in and around the nearby historic Radburn neighborhood.
A thoughtfully designed suite of amenities will enhance residents’ quality of life and encourage interaction and wellness. The amenity area will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center with fitness on demand, a yoga studio, spa room, sauna, steam room, hair styling station, manicure station, massage room, clubroom, multipurpose room, game room, conference room, movie room, library and a pet spa. Two landscaped courtyards will include a swimming pool with pergolas, a putting green, bocce court, fire pit and grilling stations.
The new community is conveniently located for those seeking quick access to the entertainment, dining and shopping centers in northern New Jersey and commuters traveling into New York City. The building is just minutes from both Route 208 and the Radburn New Jersey Transit Train Station with service into Hoboken Terminal or New York’s Penn Station. Nearby attractions and conveniences include the Fair Lawn Promenade, less than one mile from the building, a CVS, ShopRite of River Road and more.
