When complete, the Gateway Transit Village will create 194 units of new residential development, a 650-vehicle garage and more than 120,000 GSF of commercial space that includes a pedestrian bridge intended to link the larger community and Rutgers campus to the local train station.

Tenants will include a Barnes & Noble College Bookstore, offices for the New Brunswick Parking Authority and the Rutgers University Press, and a series of smaller retail spaces.  A Rutgers donor has provided a large, iconic clock which will illuminate the walkway between the building and the university campus.

The building is comprised of a series of discrete structural systems: a pre-cast concrete for the parking structure and a steel frame for the residential tower and commercial spaces.  The façade is to be comprised of a series of pre-fabricated and thin brick panels along with stone lintels and steel channels.
