Is the Easton Ave development above street level yet? About a month ago I drove past there at night and looked like they at least had the foundation walls in place. Really looking forward to that midrise and this new one in the downtown area!

Ill let you know once it warms up and I feel like going over there LOL. It doesnt help that it gets dark before I leave work so even if I were to bundle up, it would be very dark.

By popular demand, the Easton Ave project.

Nearby, by the RU student center, this ugly piece of crap is done

The theater building has all hands on deck when it comes to wiring. Over a dozen trucks, maybe they should carpool?

Bonus: The bottom of the building on New and George is being renovated

So how many projects are under construction in NB now?
Theater tower project (20ish floors)
New street tower (20ish floors)
Easton Ave building (9 floors)

And then a couple smaller 3-4 story buildings aimed at students along Hamilton Ave

This one just went before the zoning folks

Nothing under construction right now at Rutgers in New Brunswick. 1-2 new buildings going up on Busch campus.

Thanks! I can't wait to see the midrise on Hamilton/Easton top out. It's going to go a long way in spreading the big city feel to that area.

FRANKLIN (Somerset) – As the township builds more off-campus housing that targets Rutgers University students in neighboring New Brunswick, the council and Hamilton Street Advisory Board will meet Monday to discuss parking and obtain public input for an economic development study.

The study by Todd Poole of New York City-based 4Ward Planning will help the Hamilton Street Special Improvement District continue to develop in the wake of $190 million in investments that followed 40 years of financial inactivity, said Vincent Dominach, the township's economic development director and executive director of Hamilton Street Advisory Board.

“We’re going to change the zoning to go from four to five stories in the portion of town closest to New Brunswick for student housing and put the commercial on the first floor further up the street,” Dominach said. “We also have no parking standard.”

Student housing developer Alliance Realty Solution, which built two multi-use buildings each with three retail and 12 apartments, plans to build a 50,000-square-foot apartment complex that he will target to students with 172 units but no retail.

That project would come with 165 parking spaces, developer Dean Adi said.

“Parking we’ve provided will be more than sufficient because of the type of clientele,” Adi said. “Students have much lower parking ratios per unit than conventional tenants with multiple adults and families.”

Adi’s project will follow a soon-to-open apartment complex with 84 units and about 128 parking spaces, Dominach said. Built by Hamilton Street Associates, that building is fully leased to Rutgers students, the zoning officer said.

what are these tall, skinny towers?
The core of the building, where the elevators and emergency stairs go (and the main water and electric pipes)

The rest of the building will be steel, which is MIA right now. Usually in the US, the steel is 3-4 floors behind the concrete core as they build up.


The Livingston building was all concrete

An abandoned home has been demolished on Bayard Street. Unsure if there is a development plan.
