Wright Place is part of the overall Westmont Station Redevelopment Plan. Years in the making, the Plan is essentially the “re-purposing” of the old Curtis Wright Aircraft Facility located in Wood-Ridge, NJ. The first phases of the redevelopment plan include development of what used to be the parking areas for workers in the plant. The focal point of the redevelopment area is “Rosie Square” paying homage to the icon representing women working in factories to support the World War II effort. The other side of the site is home to a newly constructed New Jersey Transit Rail Station, appropriately named “Wesmont Station”. The construction of this station was funded by the developer/owner of the site, with construction oversight provided by Somerset Development, one of the developers of Wright Place. The Station, located on the Bergen County Line, opened successfully in 2017 and has been accommodating residents of the Wesmont Station community since, with a 22 minute ride to Penn Station, NYC.
In between the new station and Rosie Square, there are four (4) residential developments, one a rental community by Avalon Bay, one an “affordable” housing development by Ingerman, and two market rate developments, one by Pulte Group and the other by Somerset Development and High Point Development, called Wright Place. Wright Place sits at the highest point of the site, and its current community consists of 54 elegant townhomes, specifically designed for the community by renowned north Jersey architect, Robert Zampolin. The homes are 2,250 square feet, with 4 models to choose from, each three stories and each living a little differently. Wright Place boasts twenty four foot wide townhomes, with front and rear access, and upscale included features. Numerous windows, dramatic staircases, flexible rooms, solid hardwood second floors and many other features are included, features that other builders charge as extras. The site enjoys a 5-year phased tax abatement and the townhomes are owned through Homeowner Association form of ownership and this community, which is 40% sold is the last opportunity to be part of Wright Place at Wesmont Station.
