Labelled as a new "smart growth" project, this is the official website for a new Transit Village on the Northeast Corridor in North Brunswick. The proposal is to take the old Johnson & Johnson site on Route 1 and convert it into a significant community hub. While the words "New Urbanism" seems to be conspicuously absent, I do see TND and TOD popping up in an early newsletter. For those unfamiliar with the site or or concepts, I would encourage you to watch the main video/ad for the project.
The project team includes Hillier and the relatively new firm of MelvinKernan which brings some great experiences to bear on planned communities.
The participatory elements are particularly interesting as they have insisted on running a series of public workshops. Their website includes photos and videos from the workshops which seem well run. The challenge, as with most public participatory work, is how to respond to the public comments while doing something creatively original and financially successful.
