the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, the day has finally arrived ,  the Dayton, the first of four high density housing projects in the Village of Ridgewood’s central business district , has begun leasing to tenants, with a move in date in January.

The Dayton , is located at 150 South Broad Street, Ridgewood, NJ 07450  with rents ranging from $2875-$5230 / 1-2 Bedroom(s), 1-2.5 Bath(s).

The complex comes with a host of amenities such as :

24-hour Emergency Maintenance

Controlled Access at Building Entry

Covered Reserved Parking and on-site Guest Parking

Daytime Concierge

Elevator

Emergency Maintenance

Fitness Center with Cardio and Weight Training

Landscaped Amenity Deck

Various Courtyard Terraces

Piazza & Associates Inc. , which bills itself as the , “The premier provider of Community Management and Affordable Housing Services in New Jersey.” told North Jersey Media ,”We’re getting young professionals as well as empty-nesters,”

The 93-unit luxury complex  is just blocks from the  Ridgewood train station and or Ridgewood bus station . While the impact on  the Village has been greatly under estimated , only time will tell in the era of COVID  and remote work whether  a commuter friendly life style still has appeal .  On the other hand , the Dayton and the 3 other high density housing complexes may just be the shot in the arm the central business district needs .

  1. Right. That 5300 unit is for “down sizing”, as we were told by Aronsohn puppets.
    Wait and watch. Those two bedrooms will be used by transient renters who need to put their kids in Ridgewood Schools for couple of years before college and then leave.

  2. How much!

  3. There will be absolutely no tenants with school age children. Gwen Houck was most definitive about that when she was on the council. She clearly stated that nobody with a family would live in such a small apartment.

  5. With very rare exceptions, the ONLY reason people move to Ridgewood is so that they can put their kids through the schools. Yes, there are quite a few people living here that don’t have school-age kids, but these are people that just never moved on after putting their kids through. These apartments are either going to be bought by families with kids or they are just going to stay vacant.

  6. Do they have enough room in the schools?

  7. Apartments are not bought, they are rented.
    Looking at the prices I’m not worried about transients.

  9. If you believed anything Gwenn Hauck had to say when she served on the Village Council, I have a bridge for sale at a very reasonable price. Cash only though.

  10. The only thing Ms. Hauck was good at was stealing other woman’s husband.

    What are the prices?!? If $3,500 per month for a 2 bedroom, then I’m probably not concerned by the clientele…

    Given these prices, I don’t think we’ll see any “undesirables”.

    1. its not who lives there its the news schools, water, fire , police ,traffic, sewage and parking that Ridgewood taxpayers are footing the bill

  13. There should be a negligible effect on police and fire (unless the occupants are criminals and arsonists, respectively). This isn’t Newark…

    Sewage should be a non-issue as well.

    The only real effect will be on the school system. But, how many new school-age residents are we talking about? Twenty or two hundred? If it’s twenty, then it’s a non-issue. If it’s two hundred, then that could be problematic.

    Question: which school(s) will these residents attend?

  15. Orchard School & GW Middle School.

  16. Aronsohn, Hauck, and Pucciarelli. The fallout from same. Gwenn and Paul weren’t the only 2 who (got) screwed.

  17. The prices will probably prevent some people from renting. However, some truly dedicated parents will find a way. Usually it is 2/3 children in the one bedroom and parent/parents on a couch in the living room. Some Ridgewood parents still see this as an impossibility as they have fortunately not been exposed to real poverty. In many cases, they all share a mattress on the floor with no sheets.
    I am an ex-social worker and have seen some horrible things. As long as only one family is allowed to be in one apartment, the rent will probably prevent this from happening. That, of course, is assuming that there are actually hundreds of people who want to live on the train tracks and have constant traffic problems who are waiting in line to sign up. Rents being lowered can fill the apartments with nice people who have never been exposed to “Social Values.” I don’t believe they have published the actual rent for the ‘affordable” housing sections. The courts would never allow them to charge those prices for “Affordable Housing”. Someone needs to check on that.

  18. The Village will need significant additional fire and police due to these complexes

  19. I live in one of the garden apartments in Ridgewood. Entire families cram themselves into one-bedroom apartments here, presumably so they can send their kids to Ridgewood schools. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Dayton and the other new apartment buildings in town had a very high percentage of children in their units. Maybe Ridgewood needs an ordinance against overcrowding.

  20. Very expensive to be living on Broad Street, the railroad tracks behind you, no swimming pool, forget about police and fire, what about Sanitation recycling. And someone’s not worry about the shorts are you kidding me with all those units people are utilizing the toilet flushing it, ware do you think it’s going.That’s the problem people think it’s all over when they flush the toilet. No no no that’s when I just begins,

  21. Ridgewood ranks No. 392. It spends $15,124 per pupil.

  23. There is an overcrowding ordinance. Also, there were a small number of units that counted as “low income “ ( likely already not available)

  24. Keith K lost the election by 7 votes.

    None of this would’ve happened on Keith’s watch.

    We let our guard down.

  25. Are they going to dedicate a special suite for P and G for their sleepovers?

  26. Old brogan space goes to Orchard, old ken smith and inspection station go to ridge ( unless they change the map)

  27. $3500 for two families (two single mom sisters) and their 4+ kids is cheap.

    You are dreaming if you think that:
    a) this will not happen
    b) Ridgewood will evict them when it does
    c) public funds (from multiple sources for multiple people) will not cover $3500/month
    Lets not forget, ASIDE from the MULTIPLE state, county and federal public assistance programs (welfare and child support (Welfare, WIC, EBT/SNAP, HUD, etc), many of these people are “DISABLED” (obese, “back problems”, etc) and get monthly disability checks

    These people are DEDICATED to getting every free $$ they can. They have the time AND there are multiple organizations and websites which give them step by step instructions on how to game the system.

    $3500/month a problem?
    HA.
    Don’t make me laugh.
    This is a walk in the park.

    Besides, do you know how many “ACTIVIST” organizations will fully fund families who meet their social agenda criteria (ex-cons, illegals, gender-fluid, minorities, POCs, atheists, muslims, etc, etc, etc) just to “BREAK” Ridgewood.

    You are dreaming if you think $3500/month is any barrier to entry.

  28. The lemmings will come with their kids to attend the exemplary Ridgewood schools. Wait until they find out how crappy the schools have become since Fishhead took over. This tradition of excellence BS is only going to go so far. Ridgewood is a future ghost town.

  29. They will come and continue to drag down the once illustrious Ridgewood School System.
    Ridgewood schools lost their way about the same time we went from a “right-leaning” town to a far left town.

  30. These are quite ugly and I don’t want to think about the amount of traffic they will generate. Should never have been approved on such a grand scale. Ugh.

  31. Section 8 won’t be far down the road. Once that option becomes available you can only imagine the kind of sh!thole those building will turn into and the town itself. Those of you who think there are measures in place to ensure non overcrowding are naive to say the least. These castles are the beginning of doom for the once “glorious” Ridgewood. But hey if this is what people want then I can’t do much and I don’t care. With all the woke people moving in addition to the current woke rich stock there is only one direction this town is going , down. Preparing myself to move in the next 2-3 years. RW will be nothing more than another station in the NYC subway/metronorth line.
