In today’s residential market, living in luxury doesn’t necessarily require the purchase of a home.  From Millennials to Generation X-ers to Baby Boomers, more and more people are choosing to rent, and in some cases, the high-end options available to them have become virtually impossible to distinguish from for-sale properties.

In downtown Princeton, for example, Palmer Square has successfully drawn discerning homebuyers with an incomparable location directly across from Princeton University, a vibrant array of shopping and dining options, and a collection of new condominium and townhome residences that combine sophisticated living spaces with architectural charm.  Those same attributes are also present in the community’s rental residences, which come with a level of flexibility some new Princeton residents are looking for.

“The common denominator is the appeal of Palmer Square’s location in the heart of this dynamic setting which allows residents to live just steps from acclaimed shops, restaurants, culture, arts and education,” says Lori Rabon, Vice President of Palmer Square.  “While some are ready to make a long-term commitment to the area with a new home purchase, others prefer the freedom of renting which might align with employment contracts or their children attending Princeton schools.  In either case, Palmer Square delivers the quality, luxury and lifestyle they’re looking for.” Read more

How Palmer Square Meshed Yesterday with Today

via BisNow – While Philadelphia and New York City have been attracting New Jersey’s Millennials, Princeton—equidistant from both cities—is having its time in the sun again. “People are beginning to rediscover the quality of life we have right here,” says Palmer Square Management VP David Newton, who’s been watching its rise since joining the ongoing Palmer Square mixed-use development in 1995.

This renewed interest is particularly benefiting the nearly 80-year-old Palmer Square, which is built around (you guessed it) a square across from Princeton University’s main gate. “A lot of people want to live where they work and play,” notes David, snapped above with Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners’ Greg Mardirossian, whose firm has been the development’s architect of record since 2005. Today, the development—which opened in 1937 and was first conceived in 1906 by Edgar Palmer, heir to the New Jersey Zinc Co and a 1903 Princeton grad—boasts 150k SF of Class-A office space, 110k SF of retail, 228 residential units over 1,000 parking spaces in two garages, and the 188-room historic Nassau Inn.
