Rowan Boulevard Apartments
Built in two phases, the Rowan Boulevard Apartments complex houses 884 students in 28 one-bedroom efficiency units and 214 four-bedroom suites.
Barnes & Noble Collegiate Superstore
The boulevard’s first major retailer, the 36,000-square-foot store broke ground in August 2009 and opened for business on Dec. 1, 2010. The store, which offers more than 75,000 volumes, includes a Rowan University textbook section, a Varsity Spirit Shop, and an indoor/outdoor Starbucks café.
Marriot Courtyard Hotel and Conference Center
Construction began in the summer of 2012 on the five-story hotel and a grand opening is expected by September 2013. The hotel will feature 129 guest rooms, roughly 4,000 square feet of meeting space and a 6,000 square-foot restaurant with S-shaped bar.
The historic downtown end of Rowan Boulevard will feature an all new, 1.5-acre Town Square, a gathering place for community events and celebrations, outdoor concerts, and shows throughout the year.
The Whitney Center
This gorgeous, glass-front building opened on the circle in 2011 with housing for Rowan honors students on the upper floors and 22,000 square-feet of retail space below. It was designed with
four floors of apartments and multi-purpose space for up to 300 students in the Thomas N. Bantivoglio Honors Program.
Dubbed "E-1" during construction, the second mixed-use building on Rowan Boulevard, under construction between the Barnes & Noble and the Marriott construction site, will become the new home for Rowan's College of Graduate and Continuing Education and will feature first floor retail space and a large multi-level parking garage. It is expected to open by fall 2013.
Other retail space/residential housing
Rowan Boulevard is expected to draw dozens of shopping and dining outlets and is projected to boost the local economy by more than $48 million on completion. More than 7,000 square-feet of retail space already has been reserved along the boulevard and two additional mixed-use retail buildings are expected to break ground soon. Those buildings will offer an additional 100,000 square-feet of retail space, as well as 135 units of senior housing, bringing an intergenerational aspect to the boulevard.
