Developer Garden Communities has announced construction is underway at mixed-use development Legacy Place in East Brunswick. Located just off Route 18, at 110 Tices Lane, the 520-unit complex will offer a mix of apartments and townhouses.
The 25-acre site will be developed in three phases. Two apartment buildings with garage parking and 18,000 square feet of ground-floor retail will front on Tices Lane, with more suburban-style apartments and townhomes located toward the rear of the site. Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners is the Concept Architect and Architect of Record for this project.
Legacy is on track to begin initial marketing and leasing in mid-2023.
“Legacy Place has been designed as a pedestrian-centric, town center-style development,” said the managing director of Garden Communities, Scott Loventhal. “Its product mix – including one-, two- and three-bedroom residences – benefits every demographic, from young professionals and families to empty-nesters.”
According to Loventhal, the development’s desirable Middlesex County address and variety of housing options provide a decisive market advantage.
Amenities for the complex are slated to include a 5,000-square-foot clubhouse, a fitness center, and a co-working space. The mixed-use community will also offer a shuttle service for residents to the East Brunswick bus terminal, which offers direct non-stop service to Manhattan.
As part of the project’s development, Garden Communities is making improvements to the roads around Legacy Place. This includes relocating a municipal road to provide more vehicle capacity and building a new traffic signal that will help to alleviate existing traffic.
Garden Communities is based in Short Hills, New Jersey. They have a robust multifamily project pipeline that will introduce dozens of new communities in the tri-state area over the next several years.
