Local Developer to Convert Historic Courthouse in Flemington, New Jersey, into 206-Unit Apartment Building

by Taylor Williams

FLEMINGTON, N.J. — Local developer Jack Cust will undertake a project in Flemington, about 60 miles west of New York City, that will convert the historic Courthouse Square into a 206-unit multifamily building with 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The project is part of a larger effort to redevelop and revitalize the town’s business districts and improve walkability via new zoning ordinances and promotion of shovel-ready development sites. Cust will also renovate and expand the Union Hotel, which has been in operation since 1814, with an additional 85 rooms. Redevelopment of Liberty Village, the 162,000-square-foot outlet mall, is also expected to be part of the long-term plan. Global design firm Stantec is currently compiling visual recommendations for the design of the revitalized downtown area. Their conceptual work utilizes stakeholder feedback, and the firm will offer visual recommendations in early 2021. Completion of the separate multifamily redevelopment project is slated for 2022.
