Riverside, once called “Progress,” certainly
strives to live up to its original name.
Over the past several years, Riverside has begun to revitalize and reinvent itself,
focused on molding its Downtown and surrounding redevelopment areas into a vibrant hub of shopping, dining, living and leisure.
Riverside is a small, transit-oriented community situated between the
Route 130 Corridor and the Rancocas Creek. It is a
"Riverfront" community in the truest sense, as it located on the
River and the New Jersey Transit River LINE. Riverside is just 20 minutes from Philadelphia,
30 minutes from Trenton and 1 hour and 30 minutes from New York
Riverside's redevelopment has been, and will continue to be, focused in
four main areas, which consist of the Downtown Central Business District, the Golden Triangle Watchcase Site, the Golden Triangle Zurbrugg Hospital Site, and the Taubels Mill Site.
The Downtown Central Business District is a true, walkable downtown
with a mix of apartments over first floor commercial establishments.
Several properties are undergoing renovation, bringing both new life
and new blood to this already spectacular Downtown. The three
remaining sites will see predominantly residential development with
design concept and preliminary site plans underway from each of the
Our Township provides endless opportunities for all
who wish to live and work along the Riverfront. We have made
significant strides in redevelopment with several more great strides
to come and are proud to welcome new businesses and residents to our
community. Come see for yourself!
