WEST NEW YORK, NJ-Del-Sano Contracting Corp. has completed new construction on an 11-story senior independent living community here. West New York Urban Renewal II-owned Kennedy Tower II is an affordable housing community consisting of 71 one- and two-bedroom apartments and 82 parking spaces, 76 of which are located in structured parking facilities.

Del-Sano served as the general contractor for the federally subsidized $16.7 million project, which was funded by the Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency. Construction began in July 2008, and the property was ready for occupancy in early July 2009.

Located on 62nd Street, Kennedy Tower II is adjacent to the original Kennedy Tower, which was constructed in 1968. The property offers proximity to bus routes and features safe shelters for commuters.

According to Del-Sano contracting founder and CEO Angelo Del Russo, the senior living community was built to New Jersey affordable green program standards, utilizing daylight lighting wherever possible, Energy Star appliances, heating units, water saver plumbing fixtures and high efficiency elevators. He tells GlobeSt.com that there is also recycled content in the flooring material, backfill material and concrete used in the building. In addition, all plantings are drought resistant and indigenous to the area.

Del Russo also notes that during construction, 80% of the construction waste was recycled. “Both West New York Urban Renewal II and Del-Sano shared a commitment to clean, accessible, energy efficient and affordable housing throughout this project.”
