First Residents Move into New Cornerstone at Howell Development 
Walters Completes Five Buildings in Green Income-Restricted Housing Community 

HOWELL, N.J., Oct. 16, 2020 Walters, an award-winning developer based in Barnegat, has welcomed the first residents to Cornerstone at Howell, a new LEED®-Gold and ENERGY STAR® certified housing development at 1000 Cornerstone Drive in Howell 

“We are so pleased to see families move into their new sustainable homes,” said Joe Del Duca, partner and director of affordable housing for Walters. “Cornerstone at Howell is important to the community, and is an example of Monmouth County benefitting from a successful public-private partnership.”  

New resident Nafessa Johnson says she enjoys living at Cornerstone at Howell with her five-year-old son.  

“It’s quiet and everyone is very pleasant. There are no loud noises at night and I can finally sleep peacefully,” she said 

While shopping for her new apartment, Johnson was drawn to the community’s well-maintained property and modern apartments, featuring private entrances and fully-equipped kitchens with storage space. The tot lot outfitted with an adaptive swing, suitable for children with special needs also benefited her son. “He loves it,” she said.   

With four buildings currently under construction, Walters expects to complete the premium income-restricted apartment community by year-end. At build out, the development will be comprised of nine buildings with a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.   

Key fob access for residents and amenities that encourage an active lifestyle are all part of the innovative design. Such amenities include full-size washer/dryer in every unit, fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops, outdoor BBQ and picnic area, children’s tot lot, clubhouse with fitness center, computer workstations, and on-site management and maintenance. Additionally, residents benefit from activities and events offered through a staffed social services coordinator. 

Cornerstone at Howell is open to individuals and families who do not make more than 60 percent of the county’s median income. Rental rates are based on income, family size and the number of bedrooms. Walters is scheduling virtual and phone appointments to tour apartments at Cornerstone at Howell. For leasing information, please call (732) 240-2787.   

Walters manages every aspect of a development from design and construction to property management. The developer has several income-restricted housing developments underway throughout New Jersey. For more information, visit
