An ambitious, $300 million redevelopment project linking the University with Glassboro’s downtown retail district is fast redefining both the campus and the borough.
Through a unique public/private/public partnership between the borough, Rowan and developers, creation of the “quintessential college town,” one that promotes smart growth living with mixed-use buildings, is well underway.
Plans call for the construction of a one-third mile corridor linking Rowan's main Glassboro campus with the downtown. Upon completion, the corridor will be lined with shops and restaurants at street level with housing and offices above. Key anchors are an apartment complex for Rowan University students, a Barnes & Noble collegiate superstore, and a Courtyard by Marriott hotel and conference center.
