Rush Crossing

Trenton NJ

Rush Crossing is a new affordable housing development located in the northwest section of Trenton, New Jersey that was partially funded through a $22-million dollar HOPE VI Revitalization grant from the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). The project is situated on the site of the former Carl Miller Homes public housing project—a previously blighted, once crime-ridden complex that had stood vacant and neglected for years—the new Rush Crossing neighborhood consists of thirteen three-story buildings, and provides a total of 204 units of affordable living to the community.

An important part of the city’s Trenton Station Redevelopment Area Plan, this Transit-Oriented Development project takes advantage of the site’s proximity to key transportation nodes within the urban fabric of the city, including the Trenton Transportation Center, located a half mile to the south, providing easy access to Philadelphia, New York City and beyond.

Rush Crossing community was thoughtfully designed to compliment the visual character of the surrounding neighborhood, and offers affordable rentals in one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom modern apartment units and townhomes. 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 isLEED® Silver certified.

Costing $105 million to complete, Rush Crossing, in tandem with other components of the Trenton Station Redevelopment Area Plan, is anticipated to act as a catalyst for future redevelopment in the area, and has already laid the groundwork for a successful, dynamic and vibrant local economy and community.
