Rush Crossing

 
11.02.2015 — Rush Crossing, a new affordable housing community located in Trenton, New Jersey, recently received a 2015 Excellence in Housing and Economic Development Award from the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA) at their annual Governor’s Conference held at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City. The project was honored by NJHMFA in the Leading Housing Revitalization category for “advancing the vitality of the neighborhood and strengthening local economic growth.” We are proud to have been a part of this very important project and extend our congratulations to Pennrose Properties for this honor, and building another successful New Jersey community.

 
“This year’s award recipients have all shown dedication and commitment to strengthening communities across the state and forming a foundation for economic growth.”

— DCA Commissioner Charles A. Richman (The Trentonian, 29 October 2015)

 
Developed by Pennrose Properties and designed by Kitchen & Associates, Rush Crossing provides 204 units of new affordable living opportunities for Mercer County residents and their families. The project, partially funded through a $22 million HOPE VI Revitalization Grant from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development, replaces the former Carl Miller Homes public housing project—a previously blighted, and once crime-ridden complex that had stood vacant and neglected for years.

 
An important part of the city’s Trenton Station Redevelopment Area Plan, the planning and redevelopment of the Rush Crossing community aimed to take advantage of the site’s proximity to key transportation nodes within the urban fabric of the city, including the Trenton Transportation Center, located only a half mile to the south, providing easy access to Philadelphia, New York City and beyond.

 
Offering affordable rentals in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom modern apartment units and townhomes, the new Rush Crossing community is thoughtfully designed to visually fit in with the character of the surrounding neighborhood. Amenities include a community room, community gardens, recreational areas for small children, outdoor plaza areas for resident gatherings, and on-site maintenance facilities. There is on-site and dedicated street parking available for residents. The project is a New Jersey Energy Star Development and is certified LEED Silver by the United States Green Building Council.
