Mass Tort Law Lawyers In Kendall Park New Jersey

Kendall Park is a census-designated place and unincorporated area located within South Brunswick Township, in Middlesex County, New Jersey. As of the United States 2000 Census, the CDP population was 9,006. Kendall Park gets its name from its builder, Herbert Kendall, who built it as a planned community between 1956 and the early 60s. It was built in three stages: the initial development in 1956-7 (between New Road and Sand Hill Road), the Constable development in 1959 (south of New Road), followed by the Greenbrook development (north of Sand Hill Road) a few years later. The initial development offered 2 styles of 3-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath ranch-style homes, mostly built on 1/3 acre lots, typically selling for around $16000 in 1957. The subsequent sections offered a wider selection of styles, including 4-bedroom ranches and 4-bedroom colonial-style homes. Prices appreciated rapidly in the 1970's and 80's. The development of Kendall Park doubled the population of South Brunswick township and marked the beginning of its transformation from a rural farming area to a suburban bedroom community.
