The amazing thing is that they dumped thirty feet of dirt on the site, supposedly allowing it to compress and they're going to build on top of that. Across the way, the multiplex theater had to be shut down as unsafe because the floor sank. This should be fun to watch.

Hey, how many can remember the farce of the golf courses that were going to be built on top of the dumps in the meadowlands? What did we shell out there? New Jersey and you--perfect together.

Oh, I scanned the link without noticing that. I assumed this was a development on the Delaware River in Riverton, NJ. Didn't realize this is in Sayreville on the banks of the old Raritan. Seems they could have come up with an original name.

I fail to see any similarities with Xanadu... this is more like Newport: a city (or, large scale development area) within a city, facing a waterfront, and intended to act as retail/commercial/residential enclave. Locally, there is a similar proposed project: Bayfront, over by 440/Communipaw.


lol, what? Xanadu is a project in the middle of a wasteland with polluted backwater frontage. So is Riverton. Riverton isn't even near anything you can reasonably call a city, and apparently has zero mass transit planning.

I'd also be pissed if I lived in the real town of Riverton, NJ and this place was stealing our name.

Easily another Xanadu. Retail is slowly dying thanks to Amazon. The residential component will help, but who wants to live in such high density housing so far away from NYC?

I'm not opposed to this at all. Best of luck North American properties developing this boondoggle even with excessive state and local subsidizes. I'm also just shocked this thing doesn't become Xanadu II. (Or would that be III?)

Looks more like National Harbor in Maryland. This would be great for Riverton, though. That town has been on the outs for a long time.
