Robbinsville, NJ, January 2024: This year, Sharbell Development Corporation (Sharbell) celebrates 40 years of diverse, quality development of residential, commercial and mixed-use communities. Since establishment in 1984 as a residential builder, Sharbell has earned a reputation for innovation and integrity while focusing on strategic and significant opportunities throughout Central New Jersey, where it successfully develops and manages a portfolio of apartment, retail, office and mixed-use properties. The award-winning builder has built thousands of new residences, from custom estates to planned active adult communities, townhome, multi-family and rental apartments. Most recently, Sharbell expanded its development footprint to South Carolina, with its mixed-use Downtown Nexton community located just outside of Charleston in the national award winning Nexton Master Planned community. 

 Sharbell was one of New Jersey’s first developers to adopt Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND) and Smart Growth principals with the design and construction of the Town Center located in Robbinsville, NJ, demonstrating the ability to embrace evolving trends and lifestyles. Defined by maximizing sustainability, affordability and pedestrian-friendly development patterns, the company’s mixed-use village and community environments have cohesively blended retail and office space, while integrating various types of residential homes.  

“I attribute much of Sharbell’s success to our team of professionals that has worked together for many years. The level of experience they contribute is unquestionably vital to our sustained growth and accomplishments,” says Thomas Troy, Sharbell’s president. “Additionally, Sharbell is consistently ahead of the curve when it comes to our ability to respond quickly to opportunities requiring flexibility in terms of financing, design, market positioning and execution.” 

Throughout the company’s four decades of building, Sharbell has earned numerous national and local honors and awards, including Home Buyers Warranty’s acclaimed “Diamond Home Builder” designation, New Jersey Future’s Smart Growth Award, the Congress for New Urbanism Charter award, Best in American Living award, Best Rural/Exurban Smart Growth Neighborhood Community award and numerous Community of the Year designations from local and state builder associations.

“While we will continue to grow our operations throughout our home in central New Jersey, our future plans include the pursuit of intelligent opportunities in select markets in the Southeastern U.S.,” Troy said.
