Rowan Boulevard forms a completely new 26-acre, 1/3-mile long corridor from the foot of the university campus to a 1.5 acre town square. The boulevard will feature several mixed use buildings offering 185,000 sq. ft. of retail space, 40,000 sq. ft. of office space and 307,000 sq. ft. of residential space, along with a hotel and conference center with more than 100 rooms and an adjacent 6,000 sq. ft. restaurant. The project, in the planning stage since 2004, began construction in 2008, having completed Phase I and Phase II of student housing apartments at the foot of the boulevard in 2010, and in 2011 a Barnes & Noble Superstore and the Whitney Center, a mixed use building of retail and University housing.  It is expected to attract 60 new retail stores, including a dozen restaurants, boosting the local economy by more than $48 million annually when completed.  It is currently under the direction of the Borough of Glassboro, NJ.
