Seton Village Development on Irvington Ave.

In a public meeting at Temple Beth-El in South Orange, Doug Zacker of the Seton Village Committee (formerly IACAC) and representatives of the town, (CFO Barry Lewis and two members of the BOT, Sheena Collum & Steve Schnall) had the buyers of a property on Irvington Ave. present more details of their proposal.  The buyers were Josh Mann and David Kasdan, two local developers/residents who are hoping to construct a building with rental units and and a small amount of retail space.

As there is a growing buzz about the area after this fall’s Craft Beer and Food Truck festival, interest in a ‘centerpiece building’ on the main corridor is high.  Some of numbers revealed (four stories between 50 and 57 feet and 72 units) were a concern for many of the immediate neighbors.  There were very legitimate questions about parking, storm water runoff, noise and a loss of sunlight for immediately adjacent single family properties.

In my opinion, 3 stories and perhaps about 50-60 units might be a more appropriate fit for the area.  With the right changes and compromises, I hope it could still be economically viable for the developers.  Stay tuned.
