Princeton Junction Transit-Oriented Development

OVERVIEW
Langan professionals worked with a team of planners, architects, traffic engineers, and financial and public relations consultants to create a plan for a mixed-use transit-oriented development. In addition, the team was tasked with creating a visioning plan for a potential off-site Main Street that flanks the train station in West Windsor, New Jersey. The conceptual design for the site and streetscape alternatives was presented to community residents and stakeholders over a series of meetings to provide input during the planning process. Langan was responsible for the design of streetscapes, public spaces, trail connections, innovative stormwater management, roadway design and site lighting for the conceptual design.
