Just over 40 miles from New York City, Morristown New Jersey has been endorsing incredible growth. MHS Architects has always recognized Morristown’s potential as a transit-oriented community since it provides direct train service to New York City. MHS Architect’s efforts of bringing downtowns back to small towns, design and planning for transit-oriented smart growth developments, and the critical trend of implementing green, sustainable architecture have all played a part in Morristown’s development.
Jersey Digs recently wrote about four MHS projects currently underway. The Speedwell Avenue Redevelopment Plan is a five-phase plan and was designed to create a walkable neighborhood and a sense of place. Modera 44, completed in Phase 1, 2013, will soon have a sister building Modera 55 which will contribute to this walkable community. Woodmont Properties and Roseland Residential Trust started construction on the 59-unit luxury rental building named Metropolitan Lofts and located at 11 DeHart Street.
Redevelopment of Bank and Market Streets will not only bring new multi-families to the area but also additional retail and some much-needed office space. Turner Construction and Hampshire Co. development will soon complete a new office building for Philadelphia-based law firm Fox Rothschild.
Morristown has plush history, an attractive suburb pull, and is uniquely positioned to continue creating a Morristown as it was designated in 1999, as one of New Jersey’s first “transit villages”. MHS has been very fortunate to be able to play a part in Morristown’s redevelopment and work alongside its diligent developers.
Jersey Digs covered each of these projects in their article which can be found here.
