330-Unit Residential Conversion Underway at Edison’s Former Battery Factory, 177 Main Street, West Orange, New Jersey

Earlier this month, crews began construction on the vacant and dilapidating Edison Storage Battery Company Building – a six-story, 400,000-square-foot former nickel-iron battery factory – located at 177 Main Street, in West Orange, New Jersey. That’s in Essex County. The building is being converted into 330 rental apartments and 18,500 square feet of retail space, according to the New York Times. It’s the first phase of a 21-acre mixed-use mega-development, called Edison Village, being developed by Bloomfield, N.J.-based Prism Capital Partners, Dune Real Estate Partners, and Greenfield Partners. All of the building’s 800 windows will be replaced, as the exterior of the building is being restored to a historical standard. There will be 20 penthouse duplexes, and amenities include a pool and a fitness center.
