OCHELLE PARK, NJ — Tulfra Real Estate , the real estate and develop- ment firm be - hind Village Center of Ro- chelle Park, announ c ed t h a t t h e project has entered the next phase of development focused on beau- tification of the grounds. The 7.5-acre mixed-use prop - erty at 120West Passaic St. will undergo a series of improve- ments to its on-site retention R Sonny Jumani

pond, located on the south- west corner of the property, as well as extensive landscaping throughout. “This significant next stage of development will transform the old retention pond into a public park -- a beautiful setting to walk, get inspired and significantly enhance the quality of life for all residents of the community,” said Sonny Jumani , president and part- ner of Tulfra Real Estate. “We are eagerly looking forward to seeing these renovations come to fruition.” According to Jumani, plans for retention pond renovation

include dredging the pond, aerating turf around the pond and integrating extensive land - scaping designed to beautify the pond, and help maintain the integrity of the pond walls. “Retention ponds have a very important purpose managing stormwater to prevent flooding – but they can also be a beau- tiful respite on a lunch break or for an after-dinner stroll,” Jumani said. “These improve - ments are designed to do both: Ensure the pond continues to do its job while offering serene open space for visitors and residents of Village Center of Rochelle Park to enjoy.” According to Jumani, land- scaping plans call for planting trees, grass, shrubbery, and plants alongside the areas of the property that face West Passaic St. and throughout designated open space between the new apartment complex and Sprout Brook. Tulfra Real Estate acquired the property, a former AT&T data site, in late 2018. Plans underway at Village Center of Rochelle Park include con- struction of 8,000 s/f of build-to- suit retail space and a 160-unit luxury apartment complex. A 100,000 s/f, 816-unit self- storage facility was recently completed and is now open. “We are now actively search- ing for the right mix of retail tenants that will complement the project,” adds Jumani. “There are two pads that of - fer great visibility to the main road.” Located directly across the street from the Westfield Gar - den State Plaza, Village Center of Rochelle Park is situated in one of the most trafficked areas of Bergen County, at- tracting more than 25 million visitors annually. With more than 225,000 residents within three miles, it is one of the more densely populated areas as well, so retailers can tap into a large, nearby talent pool while staffing their stores and restaurants. Village Center boasts immediate access to Rtes. 17, 4, and 208, I-80, and the Garden State Parkway, and the development is only 15 minutes from New York City. “You can’t get a more perfect location than Village Center,” Jumani said. “Village Center offers hous- ing, shopping, and dining, all in one place that’s minutes from everything you could possibly need,” Jumani said.
