Broadway Village Affordable Housing. “Low Cost Housing, High On Aesthetics.”
Broadway Village Affordable Housing. “Housing: Affordable Units Distinguished by Dutch Colonial Look.”
In response to the Mount Laurel decision mandating NJ municipalities to provide affordable housing, the Borough and the Bergen County Community Housing in Partnership sought a design concept that would infuse low income housing with elegance and dignity.
Morpurgo Architects was chosen from among 23 firms for its unique architectural solution that paid homage to Woodcliff Lake’s roots in the Dutch Colonial vernacular of the Pascack Valley.
The acclaimed Broadway Village is interspersed with stepped facades, stone walls and porches, which contribute to a lively, planned neighborhood atmosphere. It is one of two NJ COAH projects honored for exceptional design. This community surpassed Borough expectations and led to renovations of their 1920’s Municipal Building, Firehouse, Maintenance Facility and the highly anticipated Broadway Village II, an Affordable Housing Community for the Disabled.
