Somerset Development is one of the region’s preeminent real estate firms specializing in transit-oriented, adaptive reuse, and large-scale redevelopment projects.
Somerset Development is led by a senior executive team, the members of which have more than 60 years of collective development experience. Somerset is highly regarded for its expertise in the planning and development of innovative and environmentally conscious communities that evoke a strong sense of place and reflect a distinctive character. In addition to its experienced in-house staff of professionals, Somerset teams with world-class architects, planners and other consultants to work with owners, responsible parties, town officials and residents to create dynamic, sustainable communities.
Somerset’s propensity for genuine “placemaking” permeates each of its innovative development endeavors. Its reputation for complex, ambitious, and sustainable projects is on display in such landmark redevelopment initiatives as the 50-acre Anchor Glass site in Aberdeen, New Jersey; Parklawn Center, the 1.5 million square foot mixed-use office complex in Rockville, Maryland; and Wesmont Station, the mixed-use redevelopment and new train station in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey.
Somerset is renowned for its keen ability to capture the hearts and minds of the communities in which they work, both residents and elected officials alike. The company conveys a unique imagination not only in physically transforming ordinary buildings, but also in creating a distinguishing narrative rooted in culture and historical context. This results in developments that are crafted to blend walkable urban design with the character of the communities that they comprise.
