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.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!
Theater tower project (20ish floors)So how many projects are under construction in NB now?

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