Dinallo Construction Corporation and Russo Development purchase former Annin Flag factory
VERONA, NJ — D&R Verona, LLC, a joint venture between Dinallo Construction Corporation and Russo Development, has acquired the former Annin Flag factory on Bloomfield Ave. in Verona. The building has been vacant since Annin Flagmakers relocated its manufacturing operations in 2013. D&R plans to renovate the existing building into 51, loft-style apartments and construct a new building with 68 additional units on an adjacent property it also acquired. The project, Annin Lofts, will respect the history of Annin & Co., the oldest and largest flag maker in the United States, by restoring the building with the highest quality materials, interior finishes, landscaping, and outdoor living spaces.
