IRVINGTON, NJ —To link the vitality of Irvington’s urban downtown district to its overall economic development, Novus Equities, LLC is partnering with Irvington officials and economic development leaders to strengthen the city’s commu- nity core. The company, which acquired the 40 and 50 Union Ave. Medical/Professional Of- fice Campus less than a year ago, has contributed toward a preliminary plan that focuses on improving access to trans- portation links and parking, enhancing visual appearance and implementing pedestrian improvements. “In cities like Irvington that have undergone numer- ous transformations over the course of several decades, eco- nomic progress can be acceler- ated through revitalization ini- tiatives rooted in a village-like downtown streetscape,” said Scott Seale , principal with Novus Equities. “Irvington has its own unique identity where history merges with contempo- rary city living.” At the center of this revi- talization effort is the 40 and 50 Union Avenue Medical/ Professional Office Campus, lo- cated in the heart of Irvington’s emerging downtown district. Boasting a rich, distinct façade along the city’s commercial skyline, the office buildings are undergoing extensive interior and exterior capital improve- ments. According to Seale, “This medical/professional office campus is ideally suited for service providers with a cli- ent base throughout Irvington

There is very little competition in the market for facilities in that size range, and no space like it currently available in the Meadowlands market.” n
