REVA Rahway

Rahway, NJ

REVA Rahway is a new multi-family residential building, situated on 3.5 acres of land in downtown Rahway. The project includes 219 residential units within a 5-story building with two exterior amenity spaces. Both amenity spaces are situated at the second floor. The eastern courtyard is the active amenity space and includes multiple seating areas, a fire table, high table communal dining with pergola above, a large panel of lawn for sunbathing, three private dining and grilling areas, and a private living room area with an outdoor television. The western courtyard is more passive and includes a large communal lounge seating area with two additional smaller lounge seating areas. Screen walls enhance the privacy of both the resident’s units and the users of the amenity space. Each of these spaces provides residents with specific areas to socialize, dine and relax.

Bowman became involved during the conceptual phase, and during the entire site plan approval process which included site plan approval drawings and planning board testimony. The team also provided construction documents and performed construction administration services. Site improvements included site layout, stormwater and utility improvements, planting and site lighting. Bowman’s landscape architecture team worked closely with the development team and the interior designer to provide the material selection as well as the preparation of specific construction details for all improvements in the exterior amenity spaces. The team also provided full landscape and hardscape construction for the exterior amenity spaces.
