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. The community, which is the county seat of Morris County, is known for its wide variety of shops and restaurants, historical attractions, walkability, and transportation access, which has prompted many from across the state and the world to relocate there.

From the Century 21 department store on the Green to Colombian bakeries along Speedwell Avenue to the Mayo Center for the Performing Arts on South Street, there is a lot to see and do despite the town’s relatively small size. Now, another new mixed-use development is being proposed for the community.

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.

The 5 Things Interior Designers Always Notice in Your Home

what-interior-designers-notice-homesWouldn’t it be so nice to know what an interior designer actually notices in your home? Having this information would make it that much easier when you clean or decorate new spaces, or even when you decide what to renovate and what to leave as is. It can be somewhat difficult to take a critical eye to your own space that you see consistently day after day, but knowing where to place your focus and creative energy would certainly help to take out some of that guesswork, so we decided to reach out to design professional Shelly Gerritsma from Canter Lane Interiors instead. Read on to learn the five design elements she always notices first and wants you to focus on first as well.

Morristown Juniors’ All-Stars win game 1 of District Finals!

1-14_softball-bat_slideBehind a stellar, 7 inning complete game shutout and a timely 2-out, 2-run single, the Morristown Nationals All-Star softball team won game one of the 2 out of 3 District One Little League Championship on Monday night against the combined Rockaway/Parsippany team. The final score at Veteran’s Field in Morristown was 4-0 in favor of the home team, setting up the opportunity for Morristown to win the District crown tonight at Rockaway’s Donatoni Park at 6pm.

Pitcher Abby Edson was sharp all night long, striking out 5, allowing only 3 hits, with no walks and no runs while recording 9 ground ball outs. She kept Rockaway/Parsippany off balance throughout the game, snuffing out a last inning, 2 base runner threat with a pick-off at second base to end the game. Offensively, Morristown got things going in the bottom of the 3rd inning with a lead-of bunt single by Grace McKenna. After a stolen base and a passed ball, McKenna came in on a perfectly placed rbi single by Victoria Cote. In the bottom of the 4th, the Nationals came through again, this time in clutch fashion. After singles by Krista Vargas and Layla Moroses, followed by an error to advance the runners, Nina Lolli came up in need of a big hit and she did not disappoint, as she laced a 2-run single into right center field, increasing the lead to 3-0. Morristown tacked on their final run in the 5th inning as Cara Minter reached first on an error, moved to 3rd on a single by Chloe Saia, and came in to score on the next pitch on a double steal.

Morristown managed 6 hits of their own with Moroses leading the way with 2 hits in 2 at bats, including a double.
