UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey’s largest office landlord has filed a federal lawsuit, saying a town is engaging in housing segregation.

The Record newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1OJTzfa ) Mack-Cali Realty sued Upper Saddle River last week over a proposal to build up to 560 units of multifamily housing at a 47-acre site in the borough.

The real estate investment trust says the borough is refusing to change zoning to allow the project. The proposal calls for low and moderate income housing and Mack-Cali says Upper Saddle River is discriminating against racial minorities.

Mack-Cali is asking the court to force the borough to keep the town from enforcing discriminatory provisions of its zoning ordinance.

Mayor Joanne Minichetti didn’t comment on the lawsuit to the newspaper.
