Denville, NJ, was enjoying a period of regeneration, but still had a few complex challenges facing the community. Specifically, the former Elm Manufacturing building, ideally situated along Estling Lake Road, had been vacant for five years, was two years in arrears on its taxes, and had countless environmental issues. Enter JMF with a vision for transformation.
Fifty acres of a former vending machine plant lay vacant and environmentally contaminated. Hanover Township foresaw the development of a bustling 50 single-family home community, but the clean up of contaminated land alone required a developer with passion and expertise in navigating complex laws and multi-party resolutions.
