Redevelopment in the Township of Union

Spotlight on current redevelopment

The buzz is on, exciting things are taking place in and around Union Center and everyone is interested in what's happening!

We are so pleased that developers see the value in developing properties throughout Union as well as in the Center.  In 2018 the Township of Union was named the 43rd best place to live in the US and the 41st safest place to live in the US!  We believe that those remarkable designations are a primary reason that developers, businesses and new residents are heading to Union and we are immensely proud of that.

Adding a residential component to a downtown is one of the ways in which cities and towns across the state and the country are helping to revitalize their downtowns.  This is exciting as it will lead to an economic boost to Union Center businesses and stores and will bring in other appealing and exciting new businesses.  This is a model followed by many including, Cranford, Garwood and Springfield is embarking on a similar program.

Phase two of the American Landmark project is coming soon and will take place at the old Rite-Aid site.  This site will house the upscale amenities for all of Landmark developments residents in the downtown such as a gym, conference space, etc and there will also be new retail and commercial space on the ground floor.

Outside of Union Center, Russo Developments is well underway with their Vermella Union project at the former Merck site which is a 41-acre site right across the street from the Union Train Station!  This is exactly where you want smart growth to occur, near a train station just like many other communities across the state have successfully done.  Phase 1 of their project includes 424 luxury apartments and retail commercial space which will house national chain stores and eateries such as Chipotle and Panera Bread.  This project was recently named one of the ten most amazing projects in New Jersey!  Check out the article here.
