One of the issues discussed was fire safety, given a blaze at another Avalon complex that was exacerbated by its design, The Record reported. A representative of the developer had said that the new complex will go beyond code requirements and have a more thorough sprinkler system and "masonry fire walls."

After Teaneck had previously rejected a proposal where Avalon would set aside 5 percent of the complex's until for affordable housing, the developer will now set aside 10 percent of them, according to The Record.
