SAYREVILLE – Community, diversity, family, friends and sports have been cited as the most frequent reasons residents love Sayreville.

The responses were collected by representatives from multi-regional real estate operating and development company North American Properties as part of its “100 Reasons to Love Sayreville” collection.

The representatives were members of North American Properties’ Riverton team, a 418-acre, $2.5 billion mixed-used development that will be constructed in the borough.

At Sayreville Day, which was held on Sept. 15 in Kennedy Park, Riverton team members invited visitors to their booth to share reasons to love Sayreville, according to North American Properties representatives.

Alongside responses such as “motivation” and “home”, the most frequently mentioned reasons were “community,” “diversity,” “family,” “friends” and “sports.”

The reasons are being collected as part of Riverton’s support of Sayreville’s centennial celebration of its incorporation as a borough on April 29, 1919, according to representatives. Sayreville was incorporated as a township on April 6, 1876, before becoming a borough in 1919.

The centennial celebration is expected to coincide with the scheduled groundbreaking of the Riverton development, according to representatives.

The project will total 5 million square feet, through a joint venture with PGIM Real Estate, and be a “retail-driven, community-focused, hospitality-infused mixed-use destination with a blend of retail, residential, office and hotel connected by a series of gathering spaces for all to enjoy” according to the company.

“We are bringing together a world-leading visionary team to create New Jersey’s next great hometown,” said Mark Toro, North American Properties managing partner from Atlanta. “I’ve seen that Sayreville is a tight-knit family and this experience will be catered to this community and what Sayreville will support. [And] Riverton will create thousands of jobs and serve as an economic engine for the borough.”
