NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ | New Brunswick Performing Arts Center | 220 FT | 20 FLOORS



Quote:
All the pieces are in place for construction to begin on the New Brunswick Performing Arts Center, a theater project that will feature dedicated rehearsal studios, 30,000-square feet of academic and office space, and 207 residential apartments in a 20-story tower. The $167 million plan will be developed on the site of the existing George Street Playhouse and Crossroads Theater Company on Livingston Avenue, both of which are scheduled to be demolished this month.

The PAC itself will include two theaters, the first of which will sport 465 seats and an 86-foot stage and an orchestra pit that is designed to accommodate musicals, drama, dance, and opera. A smaller theater will seat 253 people and is designed for theatrical performances, smaller dance acts, lectures, and musical events.

The initiative will also include the construction of a new 350-space garage facility on a current Bayard Street parking lot. Rutgers University will be a partial owner of the PAC facility and is chipping in $17 million towards the construction.

The project, expected to officially break ground this Fall, is a public-private partnership between Devco, The City of New Brunswick, Middlesex County, The New Jersey Economic Development Authority, New Brunswick Cultural Center, Rutgers University, Pennrose Properties, and The New Brunswick Parking Authority.

Devco, short for New Brunswick Development Corporation, is a non-profit that has participated in over $1.5 billion in real estate investment, much of it coming in their hometown. Their most recently completed project was the College Avenue Redevelopment Initiative – a $330 million, 660,000 square foot redevelopment initiative that transformed 10 acres of Rutgers’ historic College Avenue campus into new housing, academic buildings, and a public green space called The Yard.

Groundbreaking Imminent For New Brunswick Performing Arts Center, New Jersey





Quote:
The city of New Brunswick, New Jersey, is only a 36-mile train ride from Penn Station, and no stranger to exciting new development. Now, the New Brunswick Development Corporation (DEVCO) hopes to utilize the community’s proximity to New York City to build an enormous Performing Arts Center.

This project aims to be a game-changer for the whole town. $170 million will be invested into the 450,000 square foot structure, bringing two new theaters, three rehearsal theaters, a parking garage with 344 parking spaces, room for academics and offices, as well as 207 residential units in the apartment tower and rooftop recreation space with a swimming pool. Included in the renderings below are advertisements for the musical, West Side Story, which is famously set in New York City. The message isn’t definitive, but it certainly echoes ambition to foster a cultural center rivaling the Big Apple.

I'll be in New Brunswick the 17th, I'll see if I can drive past the parcel. Pending weather, might go on my walking tour of the city this Sunday, so if we see 10000 construction updates, you'll know. Essentially its were I hit every damn site, walk like 20+ miles, and my feet are in a coma the next two days.

I really think one of the best ways to take in the boom is on foot. Driving is one thing, but being right there, you can absorb the fine details without fear of rear-ending someone or hitting a 4 ft Chinese lady on the street.

The 23-story New Brunswick Performing Arts Center (NBPAC) complex opened on September 4 with an event drawing 450 guests to celebrate the long-awaited $172 million project, which includes two theaters, office space, and 207 apartments for artists and performers.

The building at 11 Livingston Avenue, adjacent to the 98-year-old State Theater and massive Heldrich Hotel, is expected to “transform New Brunswick’s downtown cultural arts district, setting a new standard for performing arts excellence throughout the Northeast,” said a spokeswoman.
