Metropolitan Lofts Goes Vertical in Morristown, N.J.
Woodmont Properties and Roseland Residential Trust Enter the Final Phase of Redevelopment of Former Epstein Department Store Site
MORRISTOWN, N.J. (Dec. 13, 2016) – Woodmont Properties and Roseland Residential Trust, leaders in development of luxury apartment communities, today announced that it has commenced the construction of Metropolitan Lofts, a 59-unit, luxury rental apartment building, which is the final component of a mixed-use redevelopment project that combines luxury living with 53,000 square feet of first-class retail at the Shops on the Green and a 795-car public parking facility.
Located at 11 Dehart St., Metropolitan Lofts will feature a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments and the creation of 1,100 square feet of retail space on the ground level.
“As the steel begins to rise, we are eager to complete the final piece of the highly-anticipated redevelopment of the former Epstein Department Store site,” said Stephen Santola, executive vice president of Woodmont Properties. “Combined with 40 Park, The Metropolitan and the Shops on the Green, Metropolitan Lofts further solidifies Morristown’s position as one of New Jersey’s premier live-work-play destinations.”
“This project is transforming Morristown and is part of our commitment to transit-based development that allows residents easy access to retail, restaurants, and nightlife and impressive on-site amenities,” said Andrew Marshall, President and Chief Operating Officer of Roseland Residential Trust. “Our partnership with Woodmont and the town has been tremendously successful and we look forward to completing the final phase.”
With brick and zinc details, Metropolitan Lofts’ façade will emulate the cast iron loft buildings found in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. The building’s residences will be highlighted by sleek kitchens, featuring quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, and luxurious master baths.
Residents will have access to a vast array of amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness center with fitness on demand and a golf simulator. In addition to the amenities available at Metropolitan Lofts, residents will have access to the rooftop terrace, clubhouse and game room of the neighboring luxury apartment property, The Metropolitan.
Conveniently located in the heart of Morristown, near the historic Morristown Green, Metropolitan Lofts and The Metropolitan are only a short walk away from a variety of surrounding shops, restaurants and offices, and only a few blocks away from the NJ Transit Morristown train station. The communities’ locations also allow for access to major roadways such as interstates 287, 80 and 78.
