The groundbreaking is scheduled for this summer at Georgia King Village, a new development in Newark’s Fairmount neighborhood with affordable housing, housing for the ex-homeless and a community health clinic with social services for vulnerable populations. Development partners are the University Hospital, L + M Development Partners and various state and city authorities. Inglese Architecture + Engineering is responsible for the design.

Littleton Avenue 4-70 features a clinic and office space on the ground floor, operated in partnership with the University Hospital, and 78 affordable housing units for low- and middle-income residents, including 16 apartments for the former homeless. The state’s Department of Community Affairs will support the 16 units destined for homeless residents through project-based rental vouchers. The Newark Housing Authority is also supporting the project with 30 rental vouchers.

As reported by ROI-NJ, the $ 41.4 million development is sponsored by the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency.

The construction work should be completed by spring 2023.
