Project Team Awarded with New Town Center & Traditional Neighborhood Development Acknowledgement at Reception. At the recent New Jersey Future’s Smart Growth award reception held at the Newark Club, Sharbell Development Corporation, along with Feinberg and Associates, P.C., a Voorhees, N.J.-based architectural design firm, and the town of Robbinsville, N.J., received the award in the New Town Center & Traditional Neighborhood Development category for Robbinsville Town Center.
“Our primary goal for Robbinsville Town Center was to create a community-oriented property,” said Tom Troy, a principal of Sharbell Development Corporation. “It is an honor to have this project now recognized by New Jersey Future as a desirable place to live.”
The team’s core goal for the winning project involved creating a walkable and friendly, yet diverse community. Housing styles within the center range from small-lot single-family homes, duplexes, townhomes and loft units – integrating many options as well inclusionary affordable housing all in the same project. The result has attracted a wide range of residents – an appealing alternative to the typical “cookie cutter” community, where each home looks alike and each resident fits the same profile.
“Robbinsville Town Center was designed to be a community where residents can easily access office buildings, stores and restaurants on foot,” stated Bill Feinberg, president of Feinberg and Associates. “This encourages a friendly environment where residents can get out and meet their neighbors.”
