A new 17-story building is planned to rise at 260 South Harrison Street, in the East Orange neighborhood of New Jersey, and today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the project. The site is seven blocks away from the Brick Church train station, serviced by the New Jersey Transit. 256-260 Urban Renewal LLC is the developer.

The lot is currently vacant, with the exception of an abandoned five-bedroom house purchased in March 2017 for $260,000. According to Jersey Digs, Blackstone 360 is planning to demolish the existing home for the development. Their exact relationship with the project is unclear, but they are also likely responsible for development.

The new building, unofficially dubbed Lotus 3154, is expected to produce 300,000 square feet of floor space, creating 201 new residential units. Along with the rentals, there will be a 215-vehicle parking garage below-grade. According to Blackstone 360’s Ibrahim Hasan, “Lotus 3154” will also create 30,000 square feet of commercial-retail space.

International Office of Architects will be responsible for the design. The glass-clad exterior has a flair of creative minimalism, best exemplified by the sloping street-facing facade.
