The Residences at Palmer Square delivers historic charm, modern luxury in downtown Princeton

via BuzzBuzzHome – With The Residences at Palmer Square, you have to start at the very beginning.

The 100-unit bespoke luxury development in downtown Princeton is the culmination of a vision that dawned in the late 1930s.

In the early 1900s, Edgar Palmer first conceived of the Square as a new municipal center with buildings for retail, office and residential use, a hotel, post office and a playhouse that would complement Princeton University, located directly across Nassau Street. The first buildings, running along Palmer Square West, were completed in 1937, and a new phase has been added every decade since.

Palmer Square Management developed the apartments, with extensive design input by the Princeton Regional Planning Board. “The Residences is what I’d call the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle,” said David Newton, Vice President of Palmer Square Management. “The vision was to create a commercial core of Princeton to complement the academic core, and in terms of ground-up development, the residences complete that vision.”

The Square currently consists of 150,000 square feet of office space, 110,000 square feet of upscale retail, the 188-room historic Nassau Inn hotel and more than 1,000 parking spaces in two garages. The Residences at Palmer Square is a carefully crafted array of multi-story townhomes, single-level and duplex condominium flats and rental flats. In designing the stately homes, Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners continued the Colonial Revival style of Thomas Stapleton, the original architect.

Located on Paul Robeson Place between Chambers and Witherspoon Streets, The Residences at Palmer Square completes the vision begun by developer Edgar Palmer in 1937 to create a vibrant, European-style town square for Princeton that would include shops, restaurants and residences as a complement to Princeton University.  Taking over where architect Thomas Stapleton’s original Colonial Revival style left off, Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners of Lambertville, NJ, has created a number of distinctive elevations which expertly complement the brick, Federal-style exteriors and Colonial-era structures of the immediate Palmer Square environment.

Steel and concrete construction offers the highest level of quality and privacy, while terraces in many homes and lushly-landscaped promenades, courtyards and common areas offer desirable outdoor space.  Homeowners also enjoy indoor parking.

Custom interior features and appointments include private elevators and 10-foot first-floor ceiling heights in townhomes, nine-foot ceilings in condominiums, and tray ceilings in living and dining areas and master bedrooms.  Extensive millwork, including striking fireplaces with marble hearths, pocket doors and elegant crown moldings, add style and elegance to the homes.  Gourmet kitchens are notable for maple cabinets, granite countertops and Viking stainless steel appliance packages, while spa-like Master baths feature whirlpool tubs, double sinks, glass showers, and marble countertops.
