Improvements Made to Cinnaminson Light Rail Station

Kaplan Companies of Highland Park, has completed a $50,000 retrofit to Cinnaminson‘s RiverLINE light rail station to improve access for homeowners in the company’s new Villages at Cinnaminson Harbour project. Improvements include a pedestrian crossing of River Road (Highway 543), sidewalks, handicap ramp, lighting, and pedestrian crossover of the tracks.

Located on the banks of the Delaware River, the 911-unit subdivision in Burlington County will include a mix of townhouses, carriage homes, condominiums, and villas, as well as several shops and a marina. Of these units, 511 will be condos and 400 will be rental units with 136 set aside as affordable housing. To date, 95 percent of the first 150 homes have sold. In mid-March, the company opened the next phase — 33 townhouses and 36 carriage homes. Units are currently listed to sell from $189,000 to $284,000.

RiverLINE runs through Mercer, Burlington, and Camden counties along the Delaware River, and serves commuters between Trenton and Camden, with transfers to downtown Trenton and Philadelphia.

In other activities near the Cinnaminson RiverLINE station, a developer (1714 Bannard Street LLC) is currently building a business park across River Road from the station. The 105,000 square foot park will include office, restaurant, and storage space.
