Cranbury Township Planning Board to hear full application of Toll Brothers development in June

STAFF/ANDREW HARRISON

Toll Brothers, Inc. representatives will soon make their case to the Cranbury Township Planning Board for a proposed 167-unit age-restricted residential development.

Representatives are scheduled to present the full application for Regency at Cranbury during a public hearing on June 4.

Toll Brothers’ new proposal offers 167 units, which is a seven-unit decrease from the original proposal on the Protinick property located at the corner of Dey and Petty roads.

The first plan was a 174-unit age-restricted development on the 71-acre property.

In March, Toll Brothers had been denied a variance to alter the riparian zone buffer that surrounded a surface water body to the east of the Protinick property, which altered the number of housing units Toll Brothers would go on to propose.

Access to the residential site will be through two full movement access driveways proposed to intersect Dey and Petty roads, according to documents.

Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, a Lawrenceville firm, hired by Toll Brothers, states in its impact traffic study that the proposed development is not expected to significantly impact traffic during peak hours.

According to figures from the firm’s analysis, Langan estimates that the residential project will generate about 60 trips (20 enter, 40 exit) during the weekday morning peak hour and 72 trips (44 enter, 28 exit) during the weekday evening peak hour.

Along with the housing units, Toll Brothers plans to construct a one-story clubhouse that would include a pool, a spa, two tennis courts, two bocce courts and bicycle parking. There will also be a putting green and outdoor gathering center as part of the recreational facilities.

Representatives estimate that the development will generate $2.19 million in property tax revenue.

The property currently consists of an active farm and contains a single-family home and two accessory structures on the northern part of the site along Dey Road.

In 2016, Cranbury officials entered into an affordable housing settlement agreement with the Toll Brothers.
