Lennar Plans Winter Start On Durrell

During last Thursday night’s tempest, the Verona Planning Board approved a plan by Lennar Corp. to build a 33-unit townhouse development on the site of the former Bahr lumber yard on Durrell Street.

A Lennar spokesman now says the home builder will begin work on the site this winter, and will also start gathering a “wait list of interested home buyers” then. Each townhouse in the complex, which has been dubbed Huntington Park, will have two bedrooms, a finished basement and a total of 2,600 square feet of interior space. The units are being grouped into six buildings set perpendicular to Durrell and the ends of each unit (shown below) have been styled to look like a single-family house.

The development still faces opposition from a group of Durrell Street residents, who filed a suit in April against the Township of Verona, the mayor and Town Council and the Planning Board. The suit alleges that the town did not follow proper procedure when it reclassified the Bahr lot from an M-1 manufacturing zoning to A-3 residential in August 2011. The 3.6 acre property had been home to the Bahr business from 1924 until January 2011.
