Merwick Stanworth Faculty & Staff Housing
Tours Daily - Monday-Friday - 8:45am - 5:00pm
Princeton University has unveiled plans to redevelop the Merwick Stanworth sites north of campus as a residential community for University faculty, staff and their families. The project will feature a mix of unfurnished apartments and townhouses, including affordable units available to local residents with low-to-moderate incomes.
The sites, along Bayard Lane, include the former location of the Merwick Care Center rehabilitation facility that has been demolished, and the current Stanworth Apartments, which have served as faculty and staff housing for more than 60 years.
Plans call for a close-knit community that modernizes the existing housing units, adds a significant number of new units, incorporates sustainable design features, preserves the existing landscape and enhances the surrounding neighborhood.
The development is part of the University's ongoing Housing Master Plan to augment housing programs for faculty, staff and graduate students, as well as the Campus Plan, which guides campus development through 2016.
