OK, so it wasn’t a huge majority or a overwhelming mandate. In fact, it was one of the weakest showings in our history of polls — a scant nine votes. Even so, Park Square came out on top among the handful of people who put their two cents in:
Of the new construction in recent years, which residential development is most appealing?
Park Square, 55 percent (5/9 votes)
Sky View at Carriage City Plaza, 33 percent (3/9)
Riverwalk, 11 percent (1/9)
Brookside at Rahway
A couple of readers made good points: Colin was familiar with some new construction but didn’t know these by name. And Sivyaleah offered her take on each complex.
As I mentioned in the earlier post, “most appealing” could mean different things to different people. Some comments over on our Facebook page took issue with the amount of development in recent years, as well as the high-rise complex. Others just weren’t comfortable voting without knowing much about the buildings other than their exteriors.
We’ll make sure to get back to what people are comfortable with in the next poll. Thanks – and stay tuned!
