The Greater Princeton Area housing continues to expand.
The Regional Planning Board of Princeton approved the site plan on April 12. In June, work at the approximately 16-acre site will begin with environmental abatement and will continue through the summer and fall with the razing of the two existing buildings. The complex is expected to be completed in summer 2014 and to house up to 715 residents in 329 units.
Among the community’s specific elements will be:
- 74 townhome units featuring open-concept layouts, including three-bedroom, three-bathroom units, and four-bedroom, three-bath units in buildings that will be two and three stories tall;
- 255 apartment units featuring open-concept layouts, including one-bedroom, one-bath units; two-bedroom, two-bath units; and three-bedroom, three-bath units, in buildings four and five stories tall;
- a “commons” area with a fitness center, social lounge with a television, a computer cluster with a printer, a children’s playroom and a multifunction room;
- outdoor common areas, including a patio for barbecuing, a basketball court and a volleyball court; and
- a parking garage with 504 spots (408 for Lakeside residents and the others to be allocated by the University’s Transportation and Parking Services) that is served by the University’s TigerTransit shuttle service.
