GRAN KRIEGEL ASSOCIATES COMPLETES LINDEN SENIOR HOUSING PROJECT
LINDEN, NJ – The John T. Gregorio Towers, a seven-story, 78-unit senior housing project in Linden, New Jersey, designed by Gran Kriegel Associates, has been completed.
John T. Gregorio Towers Linden
A development of the City of Linden Housing Corporation, the project is named for former Linden mayor John T. Gregorio. The building is located in a residential neighborhood overlooking a public park.
Funded by the Housing and Urban Development Authority (H.U.D.) and the Linden Housing Corporation, the complex features a multipurpose room, which is served by a commercial kitchen. This communal space accommodates dining and special events, also serving the adjacent existing buildings, which are part of the Linden senior housing complex. There is also a generous outdoor area for individual and group functions. Resident interaction is further facilitated by tenant lounges on each floor as well as a number of activity rooms; laundry, visiting physician, beauty salon and computer room.
The one-bedroom residences feature windows with built-in blinds, vinyl wood plank floors and panel doors. Typical apartments are handicap adaptable, meeting all Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards. One apartment on each floor is fully accessible for site and hearing-impaired tenants.
The construction consists of load bearing masonry walls and precast concrete plank. The new building, at seven stories, bridges the scale between the existing 11-story buildings and the adjacent residential neighborhood. The multi-colored brick facades with light green metal windows and entrances give the building a non-institutional, less formal feeling than conventional projects of this type.
