Seeds Planted by Mayor Emeritius Wayne Smith Are Still Growing In Irvington,NJ

The massive 700-residential unit complex, called the Hilltop Residential Development, will replace the former Irvington General Hospital site, which has been closed since roughly 2006. Hilltop LLC today presented Mayor Wayne Smith with a $1 million check to purchase the six-acre township-owned property on Chancellor Avenue.

“This is a game changer,” Smith said of the project, which is slated to break ground in the West Ward in the fall. Irvington is expected to receive about $9 million during the next 30 years as payments in lieu of taxes for the first phase of the project, he said. The township council finalized approval of selling the property in May, according to Smith.
