SOMERVILLE, NJ - Borough officials and other dignitaries joined with New Brunswick developer Robert Weiss to officially open the Cobalt Apartments on Veterans Memorial Drive East Thursday night, with a ribbon cutting and reception for the invited guests.

The distinctive blue, white and orange façade of The Cobalt symbolizes a shift in the New Jersey housing market, one that focuses on lifestyles and a younger demographic not interested in, or unable to purchase their own home, preferring affordability, mobility, a short walk to the train, and a vibrant downtown offering ethnic restaurants and unique retail shops.

The Cobalt emphasizes a two-minute walk to the train and Main Street restaurants on its website.
