Edison Village
West Orange, NJ
<< master siteplan

Prism Capital Partners in 2016 launched construction for Edison Village, the industrial-to-residential redevelopment of the historic Thomas Edison Invention Factory and Commerce Center in West Orange. Representing the largest non-waterfront adaptive-reuse project in New Jersey, Edison Village encompasses 21 acres on Main Street, in the heart of West Orange Township's Downtown Redevelopment Area.

The first phase of the project is highlighted by the adaptive reuse of the Historic Thomas Edison Battery Building and will contain approximately 334 residential units, 18,400 square feet of retail and a 630-space parking structure.

The studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom, market-rate residences at Edison Village range from 590 to 1,500 square feet, with 20 penthouse duplex residences. The design, by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, takes advantage of existing architectural features to incorporate ceiling heights ranging from 14 to 16 feet and 10-foot replica replacement windows. Residents will have access to a private fitness center, swimming pool, rooftop deck, personal and bike storage, meeting rooms, and doorman service, among other amenities. A mid-2018 opening is anticipated.

Edison Village's retail component, including 34 residences above, slated for completion by year end 2017, occupies the corner of Charles Street and along Main Street. The Shoppes at Edison Village will provide current and future residents with a new in-town shopping experience featuring restaurants and café-style concepts. An interior plaza with a fountain will be open to the public during the day.

The project's Phase II will incorporate 230 for-sale townhouses.

Built in 1913 by Thomas Edison, the Edison Invention Complex on the site of Edison Village for decades served as a manufacturing operation. The site is bounded to the west by the historic Llewellyn Park, one of New Jersey's premier gated communities. The newly refurbished Edison National Historic Site and museum also is located adjacent to the property.
