Valley & Bloom is a residential community situated in a previously underutilized area that is now connected to Montclair’s lively historic district via an impressive gateway. The M&GD program includes 258 residences and top-of-the-line amenities that accommodate for the building’s live/work mixed use. Highlights include: a spectacular lobby with built-in green walls, leather banquettes and designer touches; hallways featuring innovation wall coverings and built-in walnut mirrors; residences with sustainable design fixtures and appliances which marry seamlessly with high-end pieces; a fitness center with a separate yoga/dance studio; a stunning resident lounge with WiFi; a coffee lounge with library; a gaming area; and a children’s playroom. Four outdoor landscaped spaces — including 2 roof decks and 2 interior courtyards — feature green roofs with plants which reduce energy costs, assist in rainwater collection, and reduce air pollution. While Valley & Bloom is pioneering smart growth redevelopment and onsite renewable energy sources in their area, we just raised our own bar on beautiful, responsible design.
