Developers are responding to the explosive growth of Kiriyas Joel on the outskirts of the Hudson Valley, preparing the local Hasidism community for a number of new housing projects.

The municipality of Orange County is home to the Veyoel Moshe Gardens apartment complex. Times Herald-Record reports the development of the recently opened 1,600 units, eventually accommodating as many as 9,000 people on 70 acres.

So far, about 500 homes have been built and at least 300 have been sold. Many of the buyers come from Kiryas Joel or Brooklyn. Multiple buyers are buying multiple units, which may indicate that the investor is considering renting.

Development has become its own metropolis, with developers switching between three homes in favor of the commercial part. Buildings are likely to include supermarkets and other stores, eliminating the need for residents to cross crowded roads to go shopping.

The complex is separated from the rest of the village by Route 105, separating Satmar Hasidism from other communities. This sect is known for having large families and may only increase the need for housing as the community grows.

The increase in development activity came after Kiryas Joel increased 63% to 33,000 in the last decade, making it the most populous region of Orange County.

Akiva Klein, the developer of Veyoel Moshe Gardens, is also developing the Acres Enclave, which is expected to inhabit 543 condos with approximately 3,000 people. Projects are also underway, including 482, 457, 250 and 191 units, respectively.

The development boom was supported by the adjacent Woodbury. Woodbury has approved the use of wells to promote water supply for Kiriyas Joel.

The inhabitants of Kiryas Joel do not always get along with their neighbors. Tensions between Satmars and other locals are due to cultural differences, community use of Yiddish and its impact on local resources, and anti-Semitism. According to the forward.. After the town’s growth accelerated and there was a proposal to add 507 acres of new land in 2015, the town of Monroe resolved in 2017 to remove and create the new town’s palm tree. bottom.
