The Totowa Master Redevelopment project represents CHA’s innovative, adaptive reuse and redevelopment of the former North Jersey Developmental Center, a 140-acre campus previously operated by the State of New Jersey for nearly 100 years. The State shuttered the 35-building campus in 2012, and through a series of public-private partnership agreements by and among CHA, the State, and the Borough of Totowa, CHA obtained site control in 2018. As a part of its redevelopment efforts, CHA demolished 100% of the preexisting structures, completed a significant amount of site work, including new utility services, roadways, and topography, and created five (5) separately subdivided redevelopment parcels, summarized below:


Parcel Approved Use Approved SF
Parcel 1 Data Center 276,000
Parcel 2 Senior Living Facility 310,000
Parcel 3 Medical Office Building 140,475
Parcel 4 R&D Facility 100,000
Parcel 5 Data Center 220,000
Totals 1,046,000


Construction began in Q2 2018, with a slated first project opening in mid-2020. Master Redevelopment Project highlights include: 


  • Execution of complex land assemblage from the State of New Jersey
  • Creation of 600 permanent jobs and 500 construction jobs
  • Creation of new ratables
  • Clean-up of all site-wide environmental contamination
  • Improved flood controls, traffic circulation and exterior lighting
