ORANGE, NJ — On Wednesday, June 30th, Mayor Dwayne Davis, Russo Development and Dinallo Construction will break ground on phase one of Essex & Crane, a 209-unit mixed-use project at the Orange Train Station and within the City’s Main Street Redevelopment Area.

Essex & Crane will be one of the largest and most modern apartment communities built in the city’s history. When fully completed, it will include 410 luxury apartment rental units, public green spaces, pedestrian walkways, and 750 parking spaces built in two phases.

“Essex & Crane epitomizes the City’s vision for redevelopment within its downtown,” said Mayor Warren. “We welcome Russo Development and Dinallo Construction to our City and the future residents that will call Orange home.”

“We are excited for the opportunity to build in the City of Orange, and we are confident that Essex & Crane will complement the surrounding community and provide an impetus for further redevelopment”, said Ed Russo, CEO of Russo Development, “The City has been an excellent partner towards achieving their vision and also very receptive to our team’s ideas for this project.”

“NJ Transit is proud to be part of this fantastic example of both private public partnership and Transit Oriented Development (TOD) next to our station in Orange,” said Bill Viqueira, NJ TRANSIT Senior Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. “This project will facilitate a healthier more environmentally friendly community, improve safety, and foster better access to employment centers and transportation, with fewer greenhouse gas emissions.”

The first phase at 377 Crane Street will feature 209 studio, one-bedrooms and two-bedroom floorplans, gourmet kitchens with energy efficient appliances complemented by custom cabinets, sleek black hardware, quartz countertops and modern backsplashes. All apartment homes have nine-foot ceilings, ample storage space, in-home washer-dryers, and convenient smart locks.
