Madison Place, the brand new collection of 35 luxury condominium residences just steps from the heart of vibrant downtown Madison, announced today that it has received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Madison Place achieved LEED Homes Certification for implementing practical and measurable solutions aimed at achieving high performance in sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
“We spend 90 percent of our time indoors, so where we live greatly impacts our health and well-being,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, president and CEO, USGBC. “By achieving LEED certification, Madison Place has become a place that its residents will truly love to call home, not only because it’s energy and water efficient, but because it’s designed with the health of its inhabitants in mind.”
Located at 33 Green Village Road, Madison Place is a five-story brick building with metal accents in a quiet location that borders a leafy suburban neighborhood, but is just steps from downtown Madison and two blocks from Madison’s NJ TRANSIT rail station. The community was designed to offer residents a lifestyle of comfort and convenience, with open floorplans, classic interior features and upscale finishes. Prices start from the $600s for one-bedroom residences and the $700s for two-bedroom residences. More than 50 percent of the residences have been sold.
“The residences at Madison Place are modern, high-end condominiums with stunning interior spaces and upscale appointments, and that’s only one aspect of their appeal,” said Les Newlands, a builder representative for Coldwell Banker New Homes, which was tapped by developer Mark Built Homes to market and sell the community. “They offer an opportunity to enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle in a beautiful downtown setting full of shops and restaurants, excellent public schools, and mass-transit to New York City, not to mention proximity to three universities, parks, art galleries, and theatres. It’s one of the most desirable suburban locations in New Jersey.”
Madison is situated in eastern Morris County, about 27 miles from Manhattan. It is known for its beautiful parks, highly-ranked public schools and universities, and the charming, family-friendly character of its downtown. Enhancing the town’s desirability is its reasonable property tax rate, one of the lowest in the area. Route 287 and Route 24 are both easily accessible and downtown Morristown is just four miles away, offering many additional shopping, dining, entertainment and nightlife options.
Madison has a deep connection to the arts, with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey and the Writers Theatre of New Jersey both calling Madison home, as well as Shanghai Jazz, an internationally-known jazz club, bar and restaurant that regularly hosts world-class musicians.
The homes at Madison Place range in size from 1,138 to 2,836 square feet of living space and are available in a variety of layouts, including a small handful of two-story residences. All residences feature private outdoor space with maintenance-free composite decks or concrete terraces.
Residents of Madison Place enjoy state-of-the-art conveniences such as multimedia data ports in the living room, study, and all bedrooms, full-sized Whirlpool Duet front loading washer and dryer, and custom hydraulic elevator service on all floors. A “video doorman” provides 24-hour, seven days a week visitor and package delivery management, and also includes full monitoring of the lobby, elevator, and garage areas using high-resolution cameras. A security system with motion detector is included in all homes. Commercial grade oversized framing and a leading edge sound attenuation system helps to ensure minimal noise and vibration transmission between the floors and walls of each residence.
In providing Madison Place with its LEED certification, the U.S. Green Building Council praised the community, noting that its dedication to an innovative, environmentally-friendly design is not only helping to build a healthy, sustainable future, but also providing its residents with cost-saving benefits.
“LEED certification is an innovative way to tackle rising energy costs by cutting a home’s energy usage by as much as 60 percent,” Ramanujam added. “The homeowners of Madison Place will be saving money year round by living in a beautiful LEED-certified home.”
