By Anuradha Kher, Online News Editor Union City/West New York, N.J.–Governor of New Jersey Jon Corzine and New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Commissioner Joseph Doria attended the launch of plans for Horizon Heights, an affordable housing property that straddles West New York and Union City, N.J. Horizon Heights is part of a plan to construct 14 new affordable housing projects across the state to be built with the help of federal tax credits. Del-Sano Contracting Corp. is the general construction contractor and Regan Development is the project owner. Construction will be completed by next year and occupancy is expected in early fall 2010. Specifically, Horizon Heights will feature 52 one-, two- and three-bedroom units of workforce affordable rental housing, as well as housing for individuals and families with special needs. The five-story building will offer parking and retail on the first floor, additional parking on a sub-floor, and four residential stories above. All units will be affordable to families earning less than 60 percent of Hudson County median income. Eight of those units will be designated for individuals or families with developmental disabilities, and six units will be set aside for independent living residents with special needs. Del Sano will utilize the latest in high-performance building technologies and will be participating in the New Jersey Green Homes’ Program, as well as the New Jersey Energy Star Program. Horizon Heights, which will be developed on the site of a former warehouse, is located in an urban, mixed-use neighborhood with housing, commercial and light industrial uses nearby. The project architect is Jose Carballo, AIA, of Jose Carballo Architecture PC, based in Hackensack, N.J.
