DMR designed The Crescent, a 70-unit residential development in Allendale, N.J. The building was designed to be harmonious with the adjacent Municipal Building, which sits in front of the 4-story residential building. The Municipal Building acts as a liner, projecting its civic presence outward toward West Crescent Ave.
The 100,000 SF building is configured around an internal courtyard which serves an amenity and outdoor passive recreation space, including a fireplace, BBQ area, pergola, turf lawn area and multiple seating areas. The interior boasts a large well-appointed lobby with multiple seating and lounge spaces along with an expansive club room that opens directly out to the courtyard.
The project consists of one- and two-bedroom market rate units, along with a compliment of affordable units for seniors and first responders.
