Totowa, NJ


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 pre-existing structures, completed a significant amount of site work, including new utility services, roadways, and topography, and created five separately subdivided redevelopment parcels, summarized below.
