Architectural Design for Borough of East Rutherford Police & Municipal Court
East Rutherford, New Jersey
The architecture firm of Guzzo + Guzzo has been shaping the Meadowlands area for more than 40 years. Taking on its newest venture, the second-generation family-run business is designing and developing the new East Rutherford Police and Municipal Court complex from the ground up. With all the approvals in place, the project broke ground in late 2010 and will be completed with the anticipated opening of the American Dream Mall at the Meadowlands, former Xanadu. The existing police station is currently housed in extremely tight quarters on Grove Street, in the middle of a residential neighborhood with no room to grow. To remedy the situation, the borough teamed with a private developer and created a committee consisting of several councilmen and the police chief to oversee the design. Guzzo + Guzzo Architects worked closely with the committee to design the new two-story, 28,000 sq. ft. complex that will house the new East Rutherford Police Department and Municipal Court. The new building will contain many “Green” building materials and elements that will provide a modern and sustainable building for the borough for years to come. Also, the new site will be located in a more suitable location, just off of Route 17 on Stanley Street next to the Homewood Suites by Hilton and across the street from the Federal Reserve building, away from the residential area and closer to Meadowlands Stadium and new American Dream Mall which it needs to oversee.
