  • Rehabilitation of the existing 6-story 430,000 sf industrial building into a 300 unit apartment building with 23,000 sf of amenities on the ground floor.
  • Exterior of the existing building will preserve its original industrial appearance with large window openings and original masonry finishes
  • On Main Street a new building will be constructed; consisting of 18,000 sf of convenience retail and 32 dwelling units above the retail spaces.
  • Behind the Main Street retail building, a 5-story parking garage will be added to support the retail and residential use.
  • Between the existing and new buildings are landscaped courtyards with water amenities, formal and informal gathering areas, and a diversity of plants to create seasonal interest and green respite.
  • The project is targeted for LEED certification.

Parkway Lofts

Bloomfield, New Jersey

Prism Property Services, LLC

Construction commenced in late 2011 for The Parkway Lofts, a signature multi-family adaptive reuse project located in convenient proximity to regional rail and bus service. The General Electric Company in 1897 built the landmark, six-story warehouse that Prism is redeveloping into 361 loft-style apartments. The loft style apartments will benefit from the 17 foot floor to floor ceiling heights and original warehouse concrete structure with heavy floor load capacity. A new story will be added to the roof with additional apartments that include private outdoor terrace space and distant views including the Manhattan skyline. The project also includes a free-standing three-level parking facility. Phase I was completed in 2013. Upon full site development, the property will be transformed into a distinctive, high-density residential village also featuring approximately 170 for-sale townhomes, a clubhouse and other lifestyle amenities, to be built as part of Phase II.
