Hillsborough Village Center ATLANTIC CITY, NJ 04/11/2023

Larken Associates, a regional leader in commercial and residential real estate building, development and management, announces it received three Sales & Marketing (SAM) Awards for Hillsborough Village Center, a brand-new multifamily community in Lopatcong, NJ, at the 35th annual Atlantic Builders Convention hosted by the New Jersey Builders Association.

Each year, the SAM Awards recognize excellence in design and marketing by celebrating the industry’s most creative and successful sales and marketing professionals as well as groundbreaking projects and initiatives. This year marks the second time that Larken Associates has been recognized at the SAM Awards and exemplifies the firm’s continued growth as one of the region’s premier multifamily developers and managers.

Covering twelve buildings and 191 units, the newly constructed Hillsborough Village Center took home the prestigious Best Home in a Rental Community with 200 Apartments or Less award as well as the Best Use of Social Media and Best On-line Video/Youtube awards.

Located along Hillsborough’s vibrant Route 206 retail corridor, Hillsborough Village Center combines the best of suburban and urban living all in one concept. The community features a clubhouse and nine garden-style buildings, as well as three mixed-use buildings with elevatored apartments, and 28,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.

Completed in 2022, Hillsborough Village Center was quickly leased through a combination of data-driven and tailored marketing strategies executed by Larken Associates’ Creative/Marketing Director Melissa Nascimento and her team. Harnessing their creativity, vision and unique understanding of how to market and build a sense of community at multifamily properties, Nascimento’s team was able to fully lease the community prior to its opening.

Hillsborough Village Center is the latest property to join the firm’s rapidly growing Larken Living portfolio. Comprising 22 unique communities made up of approximately 2,500 owned and managed residential units across the northeast, the Larken Living portfolio defines excellence in residential real estate development and management. Currently, Larken Associates has nearly 1,800 multifamily units in the development pipeline and recently celebrated the completion of The Reserve at Crosswicks, a 272-unit luxury multifamily community in Bordentown, NJ.
