The Democrats and Republicans have been divided on whether to allow another developer, James Demetrakis of Arilex Realty, to build the complex as well as up to 142 residential units on an abandoned industrial site.

The Republicans wanted to allow Demetrakis to build the complex and the residential units.
Democrats on the council wanted the borough to buy the property, the former site of the Sequa industrial building, and preserve some of the land around the complex as open space.
After the second deadlock vote on the plan during a March 21 public meeting, Democratic Councilman George Perry said that he opposed any residential units on the five-acre property. - Herald News: Local [cached]

Local developer James Demetrakis of Arilex Realty told the gathering that the new public safety complex would be located in a building formerly operated by the Sequa Corp.

According to preliminary designs, it would house 50,000 square feet of space for the police and fire departments and Emergency Management Services.
The property would include 62 market-rate town houses, 40 affordable housing rental units for seniors, and 40 other residential units.
Demetrakis said he purchased the Sequa property for "upward of $8 million" and was willing to redevelop the site over 10 months at a cost of $9.25 million for the public-safety complex.
Demetrakis replied that two-thirds of the building would be devoted to a new police station and that, except for a shared gymnasium, the facilities for each department would be separate.
If the project was financed with a bond issue, borough officials said, the cost of acquiring the property and creating a public safety complex, without Demetrakis, could cost more than $20 million.

In light of this, the special monitor will probably look favorably on developer James Demetrakis' proposal to build town houses on the former Sequa industrial site in the heart of the borough, because plans include 25 affordable housing units, East Rutherford Borough Attorney Pete Melchionne said Tuesday.

In January, Demetrakis, of Arilex Realty in Edgewater, pulled out of a $9.25 million deal with the borough to renovate a former Sequa Corp. building for a new public safety complex.
Demetrakis said Democrats and Republicans on the council could not agree on how to build the complex on the 5-acre property, which is at Paterson Avenue and Herman Street.
