NHA has developed a number of new communities that challenge old assumptions about public housing. Since 2002 NHA has completed over 850 units of affordable housing. These units include Millennium Way, Oak Brook, Park Place, North Point, South Point, Kretchmer Homes and Riverside Villa. This rivals the pace of construction in the private sector.


NHA is making an investment in the community it serves through the construction of mixed-income developments that combine low income, affordable and market rate rentals, homeownership and business development opportunities. Many of our new developments combine residential, retail and other commercial uses. Through its redevelopment powers, NHA is the agent and instrument for development of projects as diverse as the 5th Police Precinct, The Waterfront, Prudential Center, the Star-Ledger headquarters and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). It continues to diversify its portfolio through public and private partnerships.


NHA has made substantial improvements to existing senior residences: we have upgraded common areas, with special attention to the community room/lounge areas. We'd like to think that the popularity of these spaces with the residents is a testament to a job well-done. We have also paid attention to landscaping and implemented high tech security and access systems to improve our seniors' sense of well-being.
