Rents on the one- to three- bedroom apartments will range from $449 to $1,361 for the affordable units and $1,500 to $1,795 for market- rate units. The development also includes onsite parking, a community room, and common laundry facilities. Construc- tion is expected to be complete by the end of the year. The developers include: • The Alpert Group, based in Fort Lee, a family-owned, full-service real estate man- agement and development company. • Ironstate Development , a developer, owner and man- ager of innovative, large-scale real estate developments in New York and New Jersey. • HANDS (Housing and Neighborhood Develop- ment Services, Inc.) , which has worked since 1986 to implement a neighborhood revitalization effort in the City of Orange and its urban neighbors. 
