The University of Connecticut’s Senior Project Inc. has been contracted by the sponsor Kimley-Horn & Associates to prepare a full solar & land development design in Hamilton, New Jersey. The property is currently home to The Shoppes at Hamilton, comprising 120,000 SF of retail space with two pad sites (a bank and a restaurant). The Shoppes at Hamilton opened for business in 2009, but the shopping center had issues immediately. One of the biggest issues this site faced was particularly due to a lack of direct access to the site from Route 130 South. While a jug handle and traffic light have since been implemented in an attempt to provide better access, the shopping center has still struggled to maintain tenants over the years. As a result, our indirect client, Metrix Real Estate Services, would like to redevelop the retail portion of the site to replace it with a +/-170,000 SF solar powered industrial warehouse. A project team has been assigned to work with Kimley-Horn & Associates to design and develop a plan of action for this site.
