On the Cover
epicted on the cover is the rst phase of the
Speedwell Avenue redevelopment proj-
ect. The rst phase of this project includesthe construction of a 268 unit four storyapartment building (Latitude) above a 357 spaceparking garage. The parking garage consists oftwo levels below grade. The unit compositionof Latitude will consist of 36 studio, 121 one-bedroom, 57 one-bedroom with a den, 50 two-bedroom and 4 duplex units. Of the 268 units,26 apartments will be affordable rental units.Phase I of the Speedwell Avenue redevelopmentproject is being constructed on an assemblage oflots that formerly contained multi-family homes,a municipal parking lot, and the Morristown DPWgarage. Phase II and III of the project propose toredevelop the remainder of the block (east of therealigned Prospect Street to Speedwell Avenue)with three additional apartment buildings. Thecurrent plans proposed mixed use with retail orcommercial uses on the rst oor for the build
ings with frontage on Speedwell Avenue. The Lati
tude building is the largest building proposed forPhases I, II and III of the redevelopment project.Latitude reects the current trend for luxury rentalswith amenities in redevelopment projects for mul
tifamily housing. The Latitude building offers suchamenities as a rooftop resort style deck, tness cen
ter, game room, lounge with replace, business cen
ter with computer stations, garage parking and up
scale interior treatments, and is pet friendly. Masstransportation options are also within walking dis
tance from Latitude as well as shopping, dining andnightlife opportunities. The rental housing marketis driven by young professionals and empty nesterswho prefer these amenities and proximity of tran
sit, restaurants, entertainment, services and stores.The multifamily housing market is increasing. In aninformal survey, the Morris County Planning Boardidentied 23 multi-family rental projects in variousdevelopment stages throughout the county. A to
tal of 6,434 residential units would be generated bythe build-out of these projects. With the soft ofceand industrial real estate market and limited avail
ability of vacant developable land, most of theseprojects are proposed on sites that were zoned for,and/or developed as, commercial or industrial use.While demand for multi-family rental housing iscurrently high, municipalities and the develop
ment community should monitor supply and de
mand so that the market in Morris County is notoversaturated. While upscale multi-family rentalhousing is viewed as a “clean ratable” by most mu
nicipalities, the density and design of this type ofresidential housing is best suited for locations inclose proximity to transit, services and shopping.
