Former Foreclosure to Future Asset

Garden State Episcopal CDC has completed another project in Greenville. GSECDC acquired a formerly foreclosed property, completed moderate rehabilitation and turned it into 4 units of housing. We think it is an improvement but we will let you be the judge. 

Bergen Court Apartments are NOW OPEN

Garden State Episcopal Community Development Corporation (GSECDC) is proud to have held a ribbon cutting event for the Bergen Court Apartments. After the building sat vacant for 10 years, GSECDC successfully partnered with HMFA, Jersey City, Hudson County and New Jersey Community Capital to substantially rehabilitate this facility. The project located at 242 Bergen Ave, Jersey City includes 12 affordable housing units, eight two-bedroom units with rents below 60% of the area median income and four one-bedroom units that are set aside for chronically homeless individuals with disabilities.

Van Brunt Homes Complete

Garden State Episcopal CDC has completed another project: Van Brunt Homes! This project involved the acquisition of several scattered site vacant lots from the City of Jersey City for the infill new construction of five two family homes (total of 10 units). This project generated $1,081,765 in mortgage activity.

The Van Brunt Homes are named in honor of GSECDC’s longest standing Board Member, Peter Van Brunt.  He was the lead person responsible for the completion of our first housing project in 1993 which involved the adaptive reuse of an abandoned school building into 28 units of low income housing.  Peter remains active with the organization and our affordable housing efforts.  

What do you like best about your new home?

The feeling of a dream come true, thanks to support offered from the personal of Garden State Episcopal CDC. The house is perfect for my family of 5, very well laid out and thinking about the best distribution of spaces.
