Blue Onyx Companies launches ‘24+Half,’ mixed-use development
Paterson, NJ — Blue Onyx Companies announced it has begun site work for “24+Half,” an adaptive reuse project located at 24-1/2 Van Houten St. in Paterson. The 2+ acre site is listed on the National Historic Register and is located within the Old Great Falls Historic District along the Passaic River. The five-year master plan calls for transforming the property’s seven former mills and warehouses into a work/live/play environment and community hub, designed for the 21st century. “Blue Onyx is committed to bringing strong, positive impact to today’s urban landscape by investing in and developing transformative real estate projects. As soon as we saw this property, we saw its potential as a vibrant mixed-use community,” said Levi Kelman, CEO. Offering proximity to Rtes. 1-80, 95 and 19 and access to NJ Transit bus and train service, 24+Half is located two blocks away from Paterson’s downtown district and is minutes from nearby Passaic County Community College, Berkeley College and William Paterson University. The redevelopment will feature approximately 19,000 s/f of residential, commercial, dining, and other space.
