Ingerman Announces the Groundbreaking of Jacobs Landing

Woodbridge, NJ – April 13, 2017 – Mayor John E. McCormac joined BCM Affordable Housing and Ingerman to celebrate the groundbreaking of Jacobs Landing, an affordable rental community, formerly the site of Woodbridge Gardens, located in Woodbridge, Middlesex County, New Jersey. 

Phase One of Jacobs Landing will be comprised of 18 one-bedrooms, 42 two-bedrooms, 21 three-bedrooms, and 3 four-bedrooms within seven three-story buildings. The community will offer residents ample parking, community space, and a full social service package including mental health counseling, substance abuse programs and a host of medical and legal advocacy services. 

All of the apartments will feature spacious layouts, oversized windows, HVAC systems, tile in the kitchen and foyer, ceramic tile baths, vinyl floors in the living rooms and wall-to-wall carpeting throughout the remainder. Kitchens will feature a full appliance package including a dishwasher and a garbage disposal. There will be both fully accessible and adaptable units, as well as fully-furnished supportive housing units in the community. 

Financing for this project will be provided through a combination of equity from the syndication of the Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency, transferred reserves from the Woodbridge Housing Authority, an Affordable Housing Trust Fund contribution from the Woodbridge Affordable Housing Corporation, and a permanent mortgage from the NJHMFA.

“Today’s groundbreaking represents yet another milestone toward achieving our goal of ensuring that Woodbridge Township residents have access to quality residential options that allow them to affordably continue to live in the Woodbridge community,” Mayor John E. McCormac said. “Jacobs Landing Phase One construction will transform the 64 year-old Woodbridge Garden Apartments on Bunns Lane into a vibrant new community with 84 units of affordable residential housing. It is important to note that no taxpayer funds will be used to construct Jacob’s Landing – the entire Phase 1 project is funded through federal and state grants, housing development programs and private investment.”

“I first met Mayor McCormac roughly 15 years ago when he was the Woodbridge Township Business Administrator. At that time, he told me his number one priority for redevelopment in Woodbridge was to redevelop the Bunns Lane public housing complex. It has taken longer than I would have preferred to get to this day, but no one can say that we gave up on our goal,” said Bruce Morgan, President, BCM Affordable Housing. “Today is the start of great things to come for the residents of Jacobs Landing and I could not be happier to finally see this project come to fruition.”
