Renaissance project reaches new heights

Renaissance at Rahway looks like it has reached its high point, literally.

Construction on the five-story, 88-unit rental development continues, taking shape along Monroe Street and East Grand Avenue. There will be ground floor parking spaces, along with 44 one-bedroom units and 44 two-bedroom units.

The image above was taken this past weekend. Here’s what the site looked like last month and in November.

Demolition of the several homes on the block, in addition the former Triangle Inn, took place last summer. A sketch of the proposal is below.
