Ridgewood builds adult unique needs flats

A new reasonably priced-housing website in downtown Ridgewood will open up its doorways to 16 grown ups with developmental disabilities by the stop of the summer time.

The 13,000-square-foot house has six independent living apartments and two group residences with communal kitchens, living rooms and laundry devices. It was all designed precisely for adults with special requirements by Virgona & Virgona Architects, and has available attributes crafted in.

The scheduling began in 2018 for what was to be just one in a series of inexpensive housing tasks launched by the Bergen County United Way and Madeline Housing Corp. The two nonprofits have so far partnered on 34 very affordable houses.

Now, 3 decades and a pandemic afterwards, the 35th web-site, situated on East Ridgewood Avenue, is about 80{6557c92bab376e861f4db2362dd750ed9808ade9f2baf81ac39a444313a64dce} renovated, stated Tom Toronto, president of the Bergen County United Way.
