Designed by the world-renowned architect Eero Saarinen, this 2 million square foot site will be transformed into a mixed-use town center in Holmdel, New Jersey. The historic facility, originally opened in 1962, is the former site of the Bell Laboratories and is currently owned by Somerset Development
. Alexander Gorlin Architects will restore the building to its original glory through exploring the property’s maximum potential and creating a vibrant, urban experience within a rural setting.
The massive, six-story, mirrored-glass structure will feature a public “promenade” created by restoring the building’s existing atrium. The pedestrian friendly development will house a mix of businesses including retail, dining, healthcare and wellness, a hotel and conference center and educational facilities. The site’s surrounding 470 acres of land allows for potential residential and open space uses.
