The Residences at Vail Mansion Named Best of the Best in National Multifamily Housing Industry...
The Residences at Vail Mansion, designed by BartonPartners Architects Planners, Inc., was named "Best Garden/ Small Scale Condominium Community" by NAHB at the annual Pillars of the Industry Awards Program.
By: Nicole Benner, Marketing Manager
Vail Mansion, built by AT & T President Theodore Vail in 1917, was owned by the town for most of the subsequent 90 years, hosting a variety of municipal uses while its classical garden and grounds served (and will continue to serve) as a public park. Now privately owned, the residences restored and augmented a treasured landmark in the middle of town, while augmenting the historic mansion with a 36-condominium five story midrise situated behind and attached to the mansion. The project has served as a catalyst to the successful redevelopment of Morristown's downtown. Despite square foot pricing far higher than any residential property ever sold in Morristown, demand was phenomenal, and 90% of the residences sold before completion at prices ranging from $700,000 to more than $1,500,000.
The Vail Mansion's location in Morristown's revitalized, pedestrian-oriented downtown is near Morristown's Community Theater and restaurants. A few blocks from the train station and close to highways, Vail also provides residents with easy access by rail or car to the commerce, culture and vibrancy of nearby New York City.
