Princeton University is able to move forward with a proposed Lake Campus project since receiving approval by the West Windsor Planning Board.
The approved project is part of the university’s Lake Campus General Development Plan, which proposes development of the campus for the next 20 years, according to a university presentation.
The project site location will include about 74 acres of development for graduate student housing for graduates and post-doctorate students. Three buildings proposed for the housing will be about a total of 330,000 square feet and consist of 379 units (253 one-bedroom, 63 two-bedroom and 63 three-bedroom). The three-story housing structures would also contain study rooms, storage rooms, a community room in one building, and a café on the first floor of another.
This latest approved site plan follows a Lake Campus South application, which was given the green light from West Windsor in April. The Lake Campus South complex 35-acre project area, also along Washington Road, includes the TIGER CUB (thermally-integrated geo-exchange resource central utility building), which will connect to two thermal energy storage tanks (TES), electrical transformers, and a generator.
