ROSELLE, NJ - It took seven years in the making and on Thursday morning, the long-awaited “Ribbon Cutting Ceremony" made it official, the PARK is open for business! 

The “Park”, a multi-family community complex, provides a great place for residents to call home while preserving open space for the residents of Roselle.

After first proposing to redevelop the historic Roselle Golf Course into a luxury apartment complex, David Lloyds, developer of the Park, unveiled a unique amenity multi-family development in Roselle’s Fifth Ward area on Raritan Road.

Assemblyman Jamel Holley who has always resided in Roselle has moved into one of the units, stating that he believed so much in this project that he wanted to live there himself. Mayor Christine Dansereau and Councilman Samuel Bishop, were also part of the ribbon-cutting event. Dansereau who was a councilwoman at the time and Holley who was then the Mayor of Roselle were both instrumental in the early planning phases of this project. 

This weekend’s official opening of the clubhouse, pool, fitness center and dog grooming facility would all be more of the same in New Jersey’s crowded, can-you-top-these amenities contest. Except the Park comes with 20 acres of open space and a 3.5-mile fitness trail that is open to the entire Roselle community, and makes it one of the largest preservation of open space in Union County. 

Mr. Lloyds’ preservation of this amount of open area would not be possible on any other site under consideration for multi-family development – and not just because most developers want to cover as much ground as possible:  There simply are no sites where such a land mass has been preserved to this point in history. 

Highlights from today's ceremony can be viewed below.

Other golf course conversions – which are not unknown, especially in Bergen and Morris Counties – typically become home to single family or townhouse clusters, which have pockets of open space.  In the case of the Park, architects and planners recognized the unique opportunity to densify part of the site with three-story apartment structures while preserving a contiguous area for open space that includes plantings, natural areas, a dog run and a substantial pond with a running brook.  

Anyone interested in getting more information can contact the Park at 908-336-3251 or stop into the office at 417 Raritan Road, in Roselle.
