Bringing the Vision to Life

Anticipated to break ground in 2024 and slated to open to residents in 2026, the first phase of development at GSP will include 550 luxury apartment homes built by Mill Creek Residential. The residences will be integrated with the shopping center via a one-acre town green for residents, visitors, and shoppers to enjoy, and will include a ‘main street’ outdoor district featuring restaurants and everyday conveniences and services.  The first phase will also see the restoration of a section of the beloved Sprout Brook, part of the development’s commitment to the community and sustainable development.


A True Town Center

When all four phases of development are complete, surface parking areas to the west of the shopping center will be home to not just modern luxury apartments, but plazas, parks, gardens, health and wellness amenities, commercial office space, as well as a transit center – alongside new outdoor shops, restaurants, and community event spaces.  Garden State Plaza will be a must-see destination: the perfect place to find the latest fashions, enjoy premier dining, socialize, take a walk or ride a bike, enjoy concerts and cultural festivals, and so much more.


“Our bold vision for Westfield Garden State Plaza is about transforming the shopping center into a true town center where the local community can come together to live, shop, work, and play.”
