RARITAN, NJ - Three years after the original groundbreaking, Stone Bridge at Raritan celebrated the opening of its final housing building, made especially for veterans.

The opening was held Oct. 29, as Raritan Mayor Jo-Ann Liptak cut the ribbon to officially open the building.

Andy Nowack, with Premier Development which oversaw the building of Stone Bridge on Route 202 in Raritan, said the land was once an abandoned factory before the apartments were built.

The newest building has 73 affordable housing units, all handicapped adaptable and with half of the units set aside specifically for military veterans.

“I have always said Raritan is the most patriotic town,” Liptak said. “For a town that sent almost the largest contingent of people who volunteered to fight in World War II, this is very fitting.”
