HAMILTON, NJ -- Just months after site work started on the project Robbinsville Township officials including Mayor David Fried, Business Administrator Joy Tozzi, members of Township Council joined representative from Project Freedom, led by Director Tim Doherty, celebrated the long-awaited ceremonial ground breaking on the new South Commerce Boulevard project.
Fried initially announced the Township would donate approximately 10 acres of the northeast corner in Town Center South along Route 33 to Project Freedom, a non-profit which develops and operates barrier-free housing throughout New Jersey to enable individuals with disabilities to live independently, in January 2018.
Robbinsville is home to the very first Project Freedom on Hutchinson Road, providing services such as recreation, training and advocacy in the form of 35 units designed specifically for people with disabilities and/or mobile impairments.
The Town Center South location will consist of 72 units, 18 percent of which will be restricted to supportive housing for the developmentally disabled. All 72 units are considered “affordable” and helped Robbinsville Township reach the 638 credits needed to satisfy its affordable housing obligations with both the New Jersey Superior Court and the Fair Share Housing Center through 2025.
The project is expected to be completed by December 2020.
