Collingswood, N.J.—Ground has been broken on the first phase of the Collings at the LumberYard, a new apartment property in the borough of Collingswood’s downtown. The first phase will include 34 units in a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, including seven townhomes with private entrances.
The property is being developed by multifamily specialist Ingerman, which took over from the project’s original developer. Planning for development of the site began in the mid-2000s, and it was to have been condos, but the recession put the kibosh on those plans.
Units in the Collings’ first phase will range from 900 square feet to almost 2,000 square feet. The first phase of the pet-friendly property will also offer residents hardwood flooring, Energy Star appliances, kitchens with granite countertops and full-sized washers and dryers. Dens and outdoor decks are available in some units.
Located along Haddon Ave., which was named one of the “Top 10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association, the Collings is near a variety of shops, as well as the borough’s Restaurant Row. The property is also not far from a PATCO station, which provides access to Philadelphia (Collingswood is part of metro Philly), as well as New York City and Washington D.C.
The property’s second phase, for which construction is expected to begin later this year, will consist of a five-story mixed-use building featuring 70 apartments. It will also include ground-floor commercial space that will house Ingerman’s new corporate headquarters and 1,500 square feet of retail.
