NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ — Earlier this week, TAPinto New Brunswick reported on a nine-story, 181-unit apartment building that’s poised to take root on the corner of Easton Avenue and Hamilton Street.

The story drew plenty of interest on the website and across social media. But what it didn’t include were high-resolution renderings of what the building and how it fits into the neighborhood.

Collegiate Development Group, the company behind the project, provided two renderings to TAPinto New Brunswick. Scroll above to see them.

The developer designed the building to act as a transition between Rutgers University’s College Avenue Campus and the nearby residential neighborhood. What do you think? Do these designs accomplish that? Let us know on social media.

The site, which sits on less than 1 acre of land, currently houses a three-story medical building and a private parking lot. In the past, it was home to a fraternity house that carried quite the reputation in the Hub City.

In the near future, roughly 575 bedrooms will occupy a building that will stand 115 feet tall, according to the developer. That will also include 9,000 square feet of ground-level retail, outdoor courtyards, game rooms, fitness areas, lounges, two levels of private underground parking, 160 private bike-parking spaces, an on-street car-share spot and, if all goes as planned, a section designated for Rutgers’ coming bike-share program.

The apartment building will be marketed to Rutgers students. But anyone may choose to live there, according to the developer.

Hype aside, some neighboring residents and rental property owners have questioned whether the parking would be adequate enough to not overburden already-squeezed nearby roads.
