Postwar Industrial Buildings Will Give Way to Seniors Complex in Closter
Reuten Associates and Metropolis Property Group unveiled plans for a 195-unit luxury senior housing development in Closter, NJ. The Residences at Reuten Park 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 will be located on an approximately six-acre property at 231 and 239 Herbert Avenue in downtown Closter – 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 will be constructed in approximately 14 to 16 months, pending the Borough’s Zoning Board of Adjustment’s approval of the application. Reuten Associates is requesting the Closter Zoning Board of Adjustments amend the property’s zoning requirements to allow for a senior housing community.
