Morristown’s newest luxury living option opened its doors at the end of March, with town officials and development executives on hand to celebrate Max on Morris.
Located at 175 Morris St., steps from downtown, the collection of 85 studio and one- and two-bedroom residences, which made their official debut March 22, are designed with what residents are looking for, particularly post-COVID.
“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of Max on Morris as it offers a vision for inclusive multifamily design built around how everyone lives, works and plays today,” said The Hampshire Cos. President and CEO James Hanson. “Beyond our robust amenity package, innovative design and unmatched location, Max on Morris’ supportive housing will allow us to help individuals with special needs experience all that Morristown has to offer.”
Joining the The Hampshire Cos. team at the ribbon-cutting ceremony were executives from multifamily property management company RHO of Roseland and Lodi-based, full-service construction company Sharp Management. Morristown Mayor Timothy Dougherty and other municipal representatives were also in attendance.
“We thank our project partners as well as Mayor Dougherty and his team for helping us bring our vision to life and we are looking forward to welcoming more residents to our growing community,” Hanson continued.
The pet-friendly complex features four affordable residences and 14 supportive housing units designed for residents with special needs, according to a March 30 announcement about its debut.
At the event, Dougherty said that anytime “we can welcome new residents to one of New Jersey’s best places to live” is cause to celebrate.
“By bringing a wide variety of in-demand housing options to our growing community, Max on Morris represents a commitment to the continued growth of Morristown,” he added. “We thank The Hampshire Cos. for their work to bring Max on Morris to life and we are excited to see the positive impact it will have on our community for years to come.”
When the project secured $28 million in construction financing last April, JLL Senior Managing Director Jon Mikula – part of the Capital Markets team that arranged the funding – commented that demand for new luxury living options in Morristown had only increased since the pandemic “as the city has attracted business and residents alike,” he said at the time.
Within proximity to the Morristown Train Station, the community is ideal for commuters while the property’s coworking lounge, private meeting rooms and work pods offer a professional work-from-home environment for hybrid or remote employees.
Amenity offerings also cover the “fun” side of things, with a second-floor entertainment lounge and breakroom that opens onto an outdoor deck with BBQ stations. Apartments include in-unit washers and dryers, quartz countertops, tile backsplashes and luxury plank flooring throughout. Select residences offer kitchen islands or moveable walls and built-in furniture for enhanced flexibility and customization.
Max on Morris features bike storage and EV charging stations.
On the ground floor, there is 610 square feet of available retail space, ideally situated for a café.
