Construction has begun on the first 49 townhomes at the Ewing Town Center, a residential and retail complex.

“This first phase is just the beginning of what we see as a game-changing decade for Ewing and everyone who lives here,” Robert Gelbard, a managing partner of the Ewing Town Center, said.

The 80-acre project in downtown Ewing will feature retail spaces along Parkway Avenue, a mix of restaurant and commercial assets, and brand-new residential rental units connected by bike and walking paths.

“Nothing like this has ever been built in Ewing,” Gelbard said. “We are very excited to bring a new and invigorating place to Ewing that people from all around the area will be interested in exploring.”

The transit village is located within proximity to many commuting options such as the Trenton-Mercer Airport; public bus and rail; and Interstate 295, Route 1 and the Garden State Parkway.

“Ewing has a lot of wonderful things going for it — and ETC is going to showcase all these great attributes,” Gelbard said. “We want to make Ewing a dynamic destination where you want to live. To work. Visit with friends. Have a dinner or date night. All of which, in turn, will have a positive impact on the community.”

The completed ETC will add 1,182 apartment units as large as 1,950 square feet in 12 walk-up buildings; 94,750 square feet of retail; and 14,375 square feet of office space in four live/work buildings; to Ewing’s downtown area.

“And every one of the townhome rentals we’re now building comes with its own private garage — which is unheard of in this area,” Gelbard said. “It’s extra details like this that are going to make not only living here exceptional, but also make visiting and working here very special, too.”
