We would like to invite all residents to get involved in the community. Our local volunteer organizations always need your support.

Main Street North Brunswick
Main Street North Brunswick is currently under construction off Route 1 North on the former 200-acre Johnson & Johnson property. The mixed-use development will feature residential living units, retail, office, restaurants and hotels.
The transit village will also feature a new commuter bus lot and a new passenger station for the Northeast Corridor rail line. A significant step forward in the development of the train station was made in April 2021 as WSP USA was selected as the design and engineering consultant for the project, which will consist of four phases.
Funding for the train station was announced in October 2017 as $50 million will come from state funding while Middlesex County committed to construction of the station’s parking facilities.
Middlesex County, through the Middlesex County Improvement Authority, was announced as project manager through an agreement with NJ Transit for the design and construction of the train station at a press conference in October 2019.
In October 2020, NJ Transit approved the release of a Request for Proposal for the design and engineering of the train station.
The transit village includes Costco, Target, the Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille, Panera Bread and The Courtyard by Marriott Hotel. Townhome residences at The Heights at Main Street are currently under construction.
