SOMERVILLE, NJ – Edgewood Properties, the developer of the Somerville Town Center luxury apartments on West Main Street, was given preliminary and final site plan approval by the borough Planning Board Wednesday night for a second five-story building with 153 luxury units and parking garage for 521 vehicles.

Ground breaking is expected mid- to late summer 2019, according to Colin Driver, the borough’s director of Economic Development, once the developer secures the required permits from several local, county and state agencies.

The developer will then have to relocate existing underground utility lines before a concrete foundation can be poured. Construction of the parking garage will follow, after which the steel girders will be erected, according to Driver.

Construction of the parking garage is estimated to take one year, according to Driver, after which time the developer will begin erecting steel for the five-story Main building facing West Main Street. The third phase of construction will begin on the smaller building that will face South Doughty Street; the façade facing South Doughty Street has been designed to imitate early 20th-century brownstone buildings, according to Driver.

The mixed-use building will be bordered by South Davenport Street, Veterans Memorial Drive West and South Doughty Street.
