Garden Communities’ Legacy Place to Introduce Multifamily with Street-Level Retail
EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. (Nov. 18, 2022) – Construction is underway at Legacy Place in East Brunswick, announced developer Garden Communities. With framing up in advance of the winter months, the mixed-use community is on track for initial marketing and leasing in mid-2023.
Located at 110 Tices Lane, just off Route 18, Legacy Place will feature 520 luxury apartments and townhomes. The development’s desirable Middlesex County address and variety of housing options provide a decisive market advantage, according to Garden Communities’ Scott Loventhal, managing director.
“Legacy Place has been designed as a pedestrian-centric, town center-style development,” said Loventhal. “Its product mix – including one-, two- and three-bedroom residences – benefits every demographic, from young professionals and families to empty-nesters.”
Two urban-style apartment buildings with garage parking and 18,000 square feet of ground-floor retail will front on Tices Lane. More suburban-style apartments and townhomes will be located toward the rear of the 25-acre site. Legacy Place will be developed in three phases.
A 5,000-square-foot clubhouse at Legacy Place will house the community’s on-site leasing and management office. It also will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, community rooms and a co-working space. A resort-style swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and grilling stations are among the community’s outdoor amenities. The grounds will include walking paths, plenty of open space, a dog park and several small parks for residents to enjoy.
Shuttle service will transport Legacy Place residents to the nearby East Brunswick bus terminal, which offers direct non-stop service to Manhattan. Additional highlights include East Brunswick’s top-rated public schools, exceptional municipal services, and proximity to area malls and retail along Route 18. A new township ice skating/hockey rink is being built adjacent to the property. Rutgers University, regional corporate campuses and employment centers, and respected medical institutions are just minutes away.
As part of the project’s development, Garden Communities is making significant improvements to the roadway network 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.
As one of the region’s most active developers in its high-end niche, Short Hills, N.J.-based Garden Communities has a robust multifamily project pipeline that will introduce dozens of new communities in the tri-state area over the next several years. The company is recognized for its responsive, hands-on approach to property operations, and its focus on meeting the needs and desires of modern renters.
