New Brunswick along the Raritan River

New Brunswick, New Jersey, located in the central part of the state, is home to the main campus of Rutgers University and Johnson and Johnson, which built a new headquarters in 1983.[1][2] Both work with Devco in a public–private partnership to redevelop downtown, particularly with transit-oriented development.[3][4][5][6][7] While there no buildings over 100 meters (330 feet) in the city, since the millennium a number of high-rise residential buildings clustered around New Brunswick Station have joined those built in the 1960s on the city's skyline.[8][9][10][11][12] A new complex, The Hub, planned to break ground in 2016, will become the city's tallest buildings upon completion.[13]

Christ Church, originally built in 1742, was the tallest building at the time of construction. A steeple was added in 1773 and replaced in 1803.[36] The six-story First Reformed Church, bullt in 1812 was long the city's tallest structure.[37] One of the earliest tall commercial buildings in the city was the eight-story 34.29 m (112.5 ft) National Bank of New Jersey built in 1908.[38][39] The four nine-story 38 m (125 ft) buildings of the New Brunswick Homes housing project originally built in 1958 were demolished by implosion in 2000.[40][41][42]

Under construction and proposed

In 2008 there was a proposal to construct a 142 m (466 ft) New Brunswick Cultural Center Tower, which would have been the city's tallest building.[43][44] In 2017 it was announced that a new building that would include an performing arts center would be built on the site of the George Street Playhouse and Crossroads Theatre and would include 18 storys of residential units.[45][46] [47]

The original building was 55 feet wide, 45 feet deep, and 20 feet high...A steeple, consisting of a tower and spire, was added in 1773. The steeple design was based on that of St. Martin-in-the-Fields in London. At the time it was constructed, the steeple was the highest point in town. Unfortunately, it seems that the original construction of the steeple was not altogether sound as the congregation began taking subscriptions for steeple repair in 1786.Following the first repair job, the steeple was struck by lighting in 1803 and it burned to the ground. It was rebuilt the same year through new subscriptions, and the tower portion of the steeple (as opposed to the spire) still stands.
