38 Units Above Ground Floor Retail Space Proposed

morristown-real-estate-development-45-morris-streetOver the last decade, like many other communities across the state, Morristown has experienced a surge in residential and commercial development, particularly in its downtown area close to the Morristown Green.

According to records from the Morris County Planning Board, the latest project could be built next to the Grasshopper Off The Green pub and restaurant at 45 Morris Street, at the corner of Wilmot Street. The proposal calls for the structure to contain 38 residential units along with retail space, and for the structure to be five stories tall. “The number of proposed parking spaces is fewer than the number of proposed apartment units,” the records state.

Read on to learn the five design elements she always notices first and wants you to focus on first as well.

Declutter (In a Big Way!)

2017-07-12_10-39-19I recently moved to a new place, and most of my things came with me. The moving process gave me a much-needed opportunity to survey the things I own and decide if I wanted to keep them and bring them to the new place, or find a new home for them (which, yeah, includes the trash can in a few instances).

It was tough to decide what would stay and what would go, but one question helped me along the way:

If I was shopping right now, would I buy this?
