MAPLEWOOD, NJ - Avalon Maplewood held their official ribbon cutting and grand opening party at the apartment complex on Springfield Avenue on Wednesday, May 2.

Ron Ladell, Avalon's Regional Vice President, gave an overview of the building which has 235 units, which he called "apartment homes," ranging in size from studios to 1- and 2-bedroom units. Ladell said that 75% of the units are currently occupied.

The complex also has three courtyards, a large fitness center, a dog run, an onsite lounge and clubroom, and a parking deck, said Ladell.

Ladell mentioned that he first met with Maplewood Mayor Vic DeLuca ten years ago, and thanked the mayor and the Township for their support for the project in general, and especially for their help after the fire in February, 2017 when the building was still under construction. 

DeLuca thanked Ladell and Avalon and said the development "is a great addition to Maplewood" and to the Springfield Avenue community. "I’m looking forward to a great partnership going forward,” said DeLuca.

Andrew Kuryllo, the Project Manager for Avalon Maplewood, spoke about the project in general, and about moving ahead after the fire during the construction period. "We broke ground in November of 2015 and were close to completion in February of 2017," said Kuryllo. "I give a terrific shout-out to all the first responders who answered the call that night of February 3, 2017."

Dean Dafis, a member of the Maplewood Township Committee shared, "it's really a vote of confidence in Maplewood that so many have picked this property over Avalon communities in neighboring towns.”
