^Great to see this project finally moving forward. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long to see the first tower rise at this site...feels like it's been on the drawing boards forever.

Ferren Deck: Moving fast, but simultaneously, painfully slow

Highland Park: Construction has started on the parcel at the corner of 27 and Adelaide. Huge potential, closest property to New brunswick...

"We recently broke ground on the former Y site, which has been approved for development of 23 townhouses."

http://highlandparkplanet.org/2016/0...loping-future/

WHAT A WASTE

5 minute walk from train station, entrance to city... Should be 200 apartments.

I have a feeling that Highland Park residents are fighting density as much as possible.

btw - anyone know if the steel-framed deck across from One Spring is getting torn down with Ferren?

Incidentally new renders have been posted at the website

http://www.thehubnewbrunswick.com/

The buildings are all smaller than the original, but the overall site plan is better.

However it assumed all the remaining buildings will sell and be demolished. The existing buildings cannot be removed by eminent domain so it is up the the owners.

I personally hope 2-3 of them remain

That's a shame about the downsizing...

The street presence of those is awesome and the architecture looks like something I never thought a small city like New Brunswick would have ever gotten!

Renders from the site.

^After The Hub is built and actually brings activity to that area. Perhaps some developers will take the cue and start earlier.

The HUB To Break Ground Next Month

From GlobeSt:

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ— Jones Lang LaSalle says New Brunswick Development Corp. began site preparation on the Ferren Mall Parking Deck for The Hub @ New Brunswick Station. New Brunswick Development expects site construction of its 1.7 million-square-foot mixed-use redevelopment project to commence in April 2017. JLL is Devco’s exclusive marketing agent for The Hub. The team managing the assignment includes Daniel Loughlin, managing director and New Jersey brokerage lead; Scott Lesh, managing director; Peter Ladas, senior vice president; and Scott Stange, vice president.

Cultural Center Tower FINALLY Happening; Aiming to Break Ground in August

I think plans for the tower were first announced back in 2004 or 2005, so this one has been a long time in the making. One more step forward toward becoming a substantial city!

Two interesting things that jumped out at me:
1. The residential component is targeting empty nesters, which is quite a contrast to the millennials that most new buildings are marketed to.
2. The building is getting some financing in the form of air rights, so I'm wondering who bought them and how tall they will seek to build.

From NJBiz:

State-of-the-art, $190M arts center coming to New Brunswick

By Tom Bergeron, April 4, 2017 at 10:55 AM

A rendering of the planned New Brunswick Performing Arts Center. - (NEW BRUNSWICK DEVELOPMENT CORP.)

The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center, a world-class facility that will host four companies in a state-of-the-art 22-story building that features two theaters, three rehearsal stages and 240 apartments in the heart of the city, is close to becoming a reality.

The project, which has been on the drawing board for more than a decade, will break ground this summer with a goal of opening in the summer of 2019, developer Chris Paladino, the president of New Brunswick Development Corp., told NJBIZ.

The project, which Paladino calls the “biggest public-private partnership in state history,” will cost $190 million.

The building will go up across the street from the Heldrich Hotel, on the spot that currently houses the George Street Playhouse and the Crossroads Theatre. Those two companies will be joined at the new facility by the American Repertory Ballet and the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers, Paladino said.

Paladino said two meetings in the coming days will finalize the project. Rutgers University is expected to announce the move of Mason Gross performances following a meeting of its Board of Governors on Thursday. And a final planning board meeting in New Brunswick is expected to give the final municipal land use approval April 10, he said.

It's about damn time!!! I heard about that tower so long ago and now it is finally happening.
The previous design was better because it had more glass on the sides. This looks like it was budget cut to pieces, but at least it is more Downtown apartments and theaters.

^Absolute travesty. Removes two great looking buildings to plop in generic tower c. Massive blank wall. Boring glass. No trees out front. And a large garage in the back.


A couple of weeks old, but the only thing that has changed is that the piles of rock have moved around

Those aerial views really give a sense of the massive scale of the downtown project. Hopefully they will actually begin excavation and piling on the site soon after all that concrete debris is ground up into gravel and removed.

I hope so, but they dont talk about dates.

The project is supposed to have underground parking, so at the very least, I hope they dig a little.

Also, the Nielson Street garage is almost completely gone as well. That one is turning into a park.

There are some more renders and details on that theater tower from Jersey Digs.
The 20 story tower will have 30,000 Square feet of Academic and Office space and 207 apartments above. Its base will contain the two theaters, one of which will seat 465 and have an 86 foot wide stage and the other will seat 253 people with a smaller unknown stage width. The whole project will be served by a 350 space parking garage on the current Bayard Street surface lot. Rutgers will contribute $17 Million towards the project for the theaters and academic space.

It also appears that the ugly side wall will have at least some narrow windows, and we will just have to wait and see for the material quality of the facade.
