About the Hub at Metuchen
Metuchen, New Jersey
The Hub at Metuchen is a mixed-use, infill project that built upon the success of Renaissance Properties’ The District at Metuchen project and Metuchen’s recent transit-oriented redevelopment trend. With Metuchen’s NJ Transit station only a short walk away and with frontage on one of Middlesex County’s most traveled county routes, this undeveloped site seemed particularly well-suited for a mixed-use development.
Renaissance Properties designed The Hub at Metuchen with a 4-story apartment building at the rear of the site and two mixed-use buildings at the front of the site with retail on the first floor and apartments above. The entryway bisecting the site lent itself well to having two symmetrical buildings. While not identical in footprint, the design team chose to treat the opposing building corners, architecturally, like bookends with identical and visually impactful design features on each. This not only created a powerful presence for the project but also helped to blend the buildings as they transitioned from 2-stories at the entrance to 4-stories at the rear.
The Hub at Metuchen consists of 79 rental apartments along with over 11,000 square foot of retail space.
Renaissance Properties handled the land acquisition, site design, entitlements, coordination of environmental remediation, site development, architectural oversight, construction, marketing, leasing and property management of this property through its ultimate purchase by a portfolio investor
