Pennrose Breaks Ground for Residence at Roosevelt Park in Edison, New Jersey

EDISON, N.J. — Pennrose and Middlesex County officials have broken ground for Residence at Roosevelt Park, an affordable seniors housing complex overlooking Roosevelt Park in Edison. The $24.9 million project will restore and convert the historic Roosevelt Hospital — which was built as part of the New Deal through Federal Public Works Administration — into 84 one- and two-bedroom apartments with modern amenities for residents who are 62 and older.

The apartment units will be equipped with Energy Star appliances, carpeted bedrooms, tiled bathrooms, cable/internet hookups and air conditioning. Six of the units will serve individuals with physical disabilities, and five will be reserved for homeless households.

The property will also offer supportive services to all residents, an on-site management office, community room, fitness room, common laundry rooms, a resident site superintendent, security cameras and card/FOB entry systems, an outdoor patio and resident gardening area.

The New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, an affiliate of the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, awarded the project 9 percent federal Low Income Housing Tax Credits, which will generate nearly $14 million in private equity.
