w DEVCO : Projects : The Gateway Project







Working with the City of New Brunswick, the NJ Department of Transportation, NJTransit, and Amtrak, Devco has crafted a plan for a major redevelopment project on the block just north of the New Brunswick Train Station. The Gateway features an innovative mixed-use design comprising structured parking, a destination bookstore along with other considerable retail spaces, and a significant residential component. The facility will rise 295 feet above the train station, and will be directly connected to the Northeast corridor rail line platform by way of a sweeping pedestrian promenade. To maintain the current balance and scale of the redevelopment area, the 16-story luxury residence tower will be set back upon the retail podium. The unique façade of The Gateway was designed to enhance the adjacent historic setting of St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church and the nearby original historic Old Queen's campus of Rutgers. Devco is also working with the city's Historical Association to preserve some of the unique facades of the older buildings currently on site. By transforming the declining neighborhood adjacent to the train station through this high-density, mixed-use redevelopment project, Devco anticipates substantial benefits for New Brunswick. When completed, The Gateway will be the city's tallest building.
