This transit-oriented development created a vibrant new connection between downtown New Brunswick and nearby Rutgers University—fostering a greater sense of place and community. Anchored by a parking structure, the village includes a Rutgers University bookstore, housing and offices, a restaurant, and a walkway to the adjacent train station.

The village created value for the city, providing an attractive, pedestrian-friendly, urban destination and essential transit connections.

This complex TOD project has been recognized in design and smart growth competitions, earning an Award of Merit from the International Parking Institute, “Most Unique/Favorite Engineering Project” by the Mid Atlantic Real Estate Journal, and the Smart Growth Award for Transit-Oriented Development Partnership from New Jersey Future.
