Developer seeking building permits

AvalonBay will ask a Mercer County judge on Tuesday to order the town of Princeton to issue the company building permits and sign off on a demolition plan at the old Princeton hospital site, where the company wants to build a 280-unit residential development.

AvalonBay also is trying to get out from under having to do extra environmental testing, the impetus behind the lawsuit that it filed earlier this year against Mayor Liz Lempert and the Princeton Council.

AS I SEE IT: Time to do something about trucks
People have long grasped that trucks were special vehicles that suggested special responsibilities. Vehicle weights that may be acceptable for a major highway would (and did) overwhelm a small road, which would need repair. To keep the roads safe and in good repair, our leaders classified roadways by capacity, so that inappropriately large vehicles would be prevented from driving on them. Read more...

I was among the 24,000 attendees who trolled the aisles, perusing and sampling some of the approximately 180,000 products that fall into the category of ''specialty foods'' - everything from cheese, chocolate, and condiments to snacks, spices, and sauces.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Robert Wood Johnson Hospital gets recognition
Congratulations I don't usually mention recognition from other publications in this column, but U.S. News and World Report recently honored Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital by ranking it as one of America's Best Hospitals for 2014-15. U.S. News evaluated hospitals in 16 adult specialties and ranked the top 50 in most of the specialties. RWJUH was recognized in 10 specialties, including cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopedics, pulmonology and urology.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Waiters' Race returns to Palmer Square in July
Fun surprises I grew up in a little fishing village on the tip of Long Island, except when tourist season came, when it seemed more like it was a part of the sixth borough of New York City. Anyway, I admit that I'm a seafood snob. Fresh fish to me means you go to the dock and buy it off the boat. So nobody was more shocked than me when I found myself having the best grilled tuna sandwich, ever, at Blue Point Grill on Nassau Street in Princeton. It was terrific. So, of course, I stopped into their fish market next store afterwards. It is full of fresh seafood like I remember as a kid and it also has some very unexpected surprises, like fresh local produce. Blue Point Grill is at 258 Nassau St. in Princeton. Read more...
