The Institute for Advanced Study is moving forward with plans to build housing on land immediately adjacent to Princeton Battlefield State Park.
The Institute will go before the Princeton Regional Planning Board on Dec. 1 with a proposal for a 7.3-acre residential complex. The proposed project site lies directly between the Institute and the Battlefield State Park on land owned privately by the Institute.
