Modera Berkeley Heights

Berkeley Heights, NJ

Modera Berkeley Heights is a new multi-family residential building, sited on just over 5 acres of land in downtown Berkeley Heights. The project includes 173 residential units within the 4-story building. The amenity areas include two courtyards, one pool courtyard and one passive courtyard, as well as a rooftop deck. The pool courtyard includes a pool with chaise lounge chairs, a grilling / dining area with an overhead pergola and a lounge seating area with an overhead pergola fronting the pool. The passive courtyard was programmed to be predominately viewed from the unit balconies that are situated on the courtyard and is mainly planting. The rooftop deck includes a private dining area and a living room lounge seating area with TV wall. Screen walls divide each space with string lighting overhead. Each of these spaces provide the residents specific areas to socialize, dine and relax.

Bowman became involved at the onset of the project and worked project stakeholders to create this concept from a township approved redevelopment plan. Bowman prepared site plans, traffic control plans, and construction plans in addition to obtaining various state and local approvals including the NJDEP. Site improvements include roadway extension and culvert design to access the property as well as enhanced planting, lighting, and streetscape improvements. Bowman’s landscape architecture team provided full landscape and hardscape construction documents including material and furnishing selection as well as specific construction details for all improvements in the exterior amenity spaces.
