March 14, 2007

RARITAN TOWNSHIP, NJ –- Garden Commercial Properties has begun construction on its latest retail and commercial complex, Raritan Town Square, a new 520,000-square-foot mixed-use center in Hunterdon County, N.J.’s Raritan Township

Development on the new complex, which has been designed as a power retail center with elements of a community shopping complex, entertainment and civic center and office park, commenced with two prominent national retailers already signed on as anchor tenants.  Lowe’s Home Improvement and Wal-Mart lead the impressive roster of tenants expected to open for business in the Spring of 2008.

Raritan Town Square will be a pedestrian-friendly destination where shoppers can stroll along the sidewalks and browse through stores in a distinctive ‘downtown’ atmosphere, indicates Scott Loventhal, Director of Development for Garden Commercial Properties.

Hunterdon County’s suburban environment and relatively low cost of living has resulted in a significant rise in population over the past few years,” Mr. Loventhal says.   “The growing residential base has led to a need for additional local shops, services and national retailers.

“As a result, the Route 31 commercial corridor has become a popular and sought-after retail destination.  Raritan Town Square will fit perfectly into this corridor by adding some of the country’s most recognizable brand stores.”

Located at the intersection of State Route 31 and County Route 523 in Raritan Township, Raritan Town Square lies in the heart of Hunterdon County’s booming retail development.  The complex will feature 12 buildings on a professionally landscaped site.
