Garden Communities: Legacy Place in East Brunswick welcomes first residents 

On the heels of its marketing launch this fall, Legacy Place in East Brunswick has welcomed its first residents. The first phase of Short Hills-based Garden Communities’ development is ready for occupancy amid brisk leasing activity; upon completion, the community will include 520 luxury rental apartments and townhomes with retail and state-of-the-art amenities.

Located at 110 Tices Lane, Legacy Place has drawn strong attention from prospective renters since it was first announced; leasing efforts began with an extensive list of inquiries – many of which are translating to resident commitments.

“Legacy Place is a pedestrian-centric, town-center-style development that immediately resonated with the public – underscoring continued demand for this type of amenity-rich multifamily living in vibrant towns like East Brunswick,” Garden Communities’ Scott Loventhal, managing director said. “We are excited to now be at the leasing and occupancy stage.”

Legacy Place features a mix of alcove studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Two urban-style apartment buildings with garage parking and 18,000 square feet of ground-floor retail will front on Tices Lane. More suburban-style apartments and townhomes will be located toward the rear of the 25-acre site. Legacy Place will be developed in three phases.

A 5,000-square-foot clubhouse at Legacy Place will house the community’s permanent on-site leasing and management office. It also will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center, an entertainment lounge with fireplace, and co-working areas. A resort-style swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and grilling stations are among the community’s outdoor amenities. The grounds will include walking paths, plenty of open space, a dog park and a central green space for residents to gather, along with several pocket parks for residents to enjoy.

Additional highlights include East Brunswick’s top-rated public schools, exceptional municipal services, and proximity to area malls and retail along Route 18. A new township ice skating/hockey rink is being built adjacent to the property. Rutgers University, regional corporate campuses and employment centers, and respected medical institutions are just minutes away.

Monthly rents at Legacy Place start from $2,295 for a one-bedroom apartment.
