Palmer Square’s Luxury Rental Residences Provide an Appealing #Princeton Living Alternative

palmer-square-exteriorIn today’s residential market, living in luxury doesn’t necessarily require the purchase of a home.  From Millennials to Generation X-ers to Baby Boomers, more and more people are choosing to rent, and in some cases, the high-end options available to them have become virtually impossible to distinguish from for-sale properties.

In downtown Princeton, for example, Palmer Square has successfully drawn discerning homebuyers with an incomparable location directly across from Princeton University, a vibrant array of shopping and dining options, and a collection of new condominium and townhome residences that combine sophisticated living spaces with architectural charm.  Those same attributes are also present in the community’s rental residences, which come with a level of flexibility some new Princeton residents are looking for.

“The common denominator is the appeal of Palmer Square’s location in the heart of this dynamic setting which allows residents to live just steps from acclaimed shops, restaurants, culture, arts and education,” says Lori Rabon, Vice President of Palmer Square.  “While some are ready to make a long-term commitment to the area with a new home purchase, others prefer the freedom of renting which might align with employment contracts or their children attending Princeton schools.  In either case, Palmer Square delivers the quality, luxury and lifestyle they’re looking for.”

Incorporated into Palmer Square’s overall residential offering, the rental residences feature the same architectural charm, elegant living spaces and upscale finishes and appointments as the for-sale homes.  Available residences offer one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with monthly rents starting at $4,490.

Palmer Square also features two- and three-bedroom, single-level flats priced from $1,230,000, and multi-level, two- and three-bedroom townhomes with private street-level entrances priced from $1,825,000.

Designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners of Lambertville, NJ, the community’s distinctive elevations expertly complement the brick, Federal-style exteriors and Colonial-era structures of the immediate Palmer Square environment.

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 fire- places 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.

Steel and concrete construction provides the highest level of quality and privacy, while terraces in many homes and promenades, courtyards and common areas offer desirable outdoor space. Indoor parking is also available.

The community’s sophisticated residences are integrated into Palmer Square’s acclaimed collection of more than 40 brand-name stores, boutique shops, specialty food stores and restaurants. Residents also enjoy proximity to Princeton University, award-winning public and private schools, and world-class entertainment and cultural offerings.  NJ TRANSIT access to New York and Philadelphia (and beyond) is only a short walk from the community, while businesses and shopping venues of the nearby Route 1 corridor are also within easy reach.

THE RESIDENCES AT PALMER SQUARE IN DOWNTOWN PRINCETON

Four new closings ranging upwards of more than $2 million were recently recorded at The Residences at Palmer Square, downtown Princeton’s premier luxury residential development.

The new sales has prompted the developer to release the community’s final homes for sale — a move that will bring to fruition an historic plan to create a sophisticated lifestyle experience in one of the most unique and culturally-rich residential settings.

The flurry of new high-end sales activity demonstrates the market’s confidence in Princeton in general, and in The Residences at Palmer Square specifically.

Downtown Princeton has long been viewed as a desirable place to live, thanks in large part to its comfortable, small-town existence that’s coupled with an urban vibrancy and international presence usually found in a big city. Its appeal grew exponentially with the continued development of Palmer Square. Today, the carefully-curated array of one-of-a-kind boutiques, brand name shops, great restaurants and open space situated directly across Nassau Street from Princeton University is the cornerstone of Princeton’s celebrated Downtown.

HOW PALMER SQUARE MESHED YESTERDAY WITH TODAY

56f158f13a078_PalmerSquareRetail

via BisNow – While Philadelphia and New York City have been attracting New Jersey’s Millennials, Princeton—equidistant from both cities—is having its time in the sun again. “People are beginning to rediscover the quality of life we have right here,” says Palmer Square Management VP David Newton, who’s been watching its rise since joining the ongoing Palmer Square mixed-use development in 1995.

This renewed interest is particularly benefiting the nearly 80-year-old Palmer Square, which is built around (you guessed it) a square across from Princeton University’s main gate. “A lot of people want to live where they work and play,” notes David, snapped above with Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners’ Greg Mardirossian, whose firm has been the development’s architect of record since 2005. Today, the development—which opened in 1937 and was first conceived in 1906 by Edgar Palmer, heir to the New Jersey Zinc Co and a 1903 Princeton grad—boasts 150k SF of Class-A office space, 110k SF of retail, 228 residential units over 1,000 parking spaces in two garages, and the 188-room historic Nassau Inn.

Longtime Princeton Resident Feeds her City Living Passion with a New Adventure at Palmer Square

PRINCETON, NJ – Peggy Hughes-Fulmer has lived in Princeton for the better part of 50 years.  With her daughters now grown and living with their children close by, Ms. Hughes-Fulmer’s expansive single-family home on two acres of property in a quiet, serene part of Princeton no longer seemed necessary — or all that appealing.

“I was ready for a new adventure,” said Ms. Hughes-Fulmer.  “My late husband loved the big house and the acres.  I’m a city girl at heart.”

An active member of the community, including serving on the Boards of the Princeton Symphony and McCarter Theatre, Ms. Hughes-Fulmer had no intention of leaving Princeton.  What she desired was a new lifestyle experience, which is where her professional and personal lives intertwined.  Working as a real estate broker at what is now Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty in Princeton for 40 years, Ms. Hughes-Fulmer was quite familiar with Palmer Square, the vibrant epicenter of downtown Princeton featuring boutique shops, restaurants and a new collection of townhomes, single-level flats and rental residences – all situated directly across from Princeton University.

Palmer Square Townhomes Exterior SMALL“Before The Residences at Palmer Square opened, there really wasn’t an opportunity to live in the heart of downtown,” Ms. Hughes-Fulmer points out.  “When the new homes were introduced, I brought many customers to see them, and always thought how much I’d like to live there.”

Deciding earlier this year that there was no time like the present, Ms. Hughes-Fulmer moved from the no-longer-needed single family home to an elegant-yet-manageable single-level residence in Palmer Square.

“Palmer Square offers what we never had before but so sorely needed; the ability to live within walking distance of all that downtown Princeton has to offer,” she said.   “And I am taking full advantage of it, attending McCarter Theartre, lectures at the library, visiting the Princeton Art Museum, enjoying the Princeton campus with the various activities offered, running errands, all of which I do walking.  What could be more appealing?”

Ms. Hughes-Fulmer also appreciates the energy associated with living downtown.

“On a recent Saturday evening, I realized I had nothing to eat in my refrigerator and decided to go out for a meal,” she recalls.  “I walked outside my door and there was a band playing, people were dining outside at the many eateries, kids were playing in the Square.  It was such a lively atmosphere, it felt a little bit like New York.”

While Ms. Hughes-Fulmer is embracing the downtown lifestyle she often dreamed about, she also appreciates the privacy and scenic beauty of Palmer Square’s residential enclave.

“The residences are surrounded by beautiful landscaping that is extremely well maintained, which creates a picturesque buffer from the shops and restaurants,” she said.  “It’s just a very desirable place to live and has added to the overall image of Princeton, becoming a destination in its own right.” Continue reading

Proximity to Shops, Restaurants, Transportation and Culture Attracts Home Buyers of All Ages to Princeton

2015-03-31_14-28-58When courting the “young professional” demographic, towns like to boast about their numerous restaurants and shops, cultural attractions and proximity to mass-transportation. But the desire for convenient, walkable neighborhoods, quality dining and a full assortment of entertainment options is hardly unique to 20- and 30-somethings. More and more, people of all ages say they flourish in vibrant town center settings, and are actively seeking them out.

Downtown Princeton epitomizes the type of neighborhood where people from multiple age groups thrive. The well-connected local street network makes navigating the downtown easy, and the variety of destinations allows several tasks to be completed at once, which is especially convenient for older demographics. More than 40 brand-name stores, boutiques, restaurants and specialty food shops are located in the heart of town at Palmer Square, and even more options are available on Nassau Street, the town’s main thoroughfare.

Princeton’s natural “walkability,” accessibility, and wide variety of businesses were a few of the core qualities that helped it become the first municipality in New Jersey to earn the World Health Organization’s (WHO) “Age-Friendly Community” designation last year. The WHO cited the ability for older adults to easily access numerous amenities and social interactions near their homes as additional factors it considered before adding the town to its global network of age-friendly places.

“The pedestrian-friendly character of Princeton makes it a highly-desirable place to live, work and play for people of all ages,” said David Newton, Vice President of Palmer Square Management, which is actively marketing a collection of luxury residences in the center of the community’s downtown. “The Residences at Palmer Square puts residents right in the middle of it all, with charming sidewalk bistros, upscale boutiques and world-famous Princeton University just steps from their front door. It’s a compelling lifestyle that’s further enhanced by the variety of home designs we have and the privacy provided by the community’s lushly-landscaped promenades which create a scenic buffer from the retail landscape. The result is a best-of-both worlds setting for all of our residents.” Continue reading

New Sales and Rental Activity Push Palmer Square to 80% Occupied in Downtown Princeton

PRINCETON, NJ – The final piece of a grand development puzzle that has successfully delivered a vibrant and walkable downtown setting in Princeton is nearing completion with an impressive 80% of The Residences at Palmer Square now occupied.

The bespoke collection of residences, a carefully-crafted array of multi-story townhomes, single-level and duplex condominium flats and rental flats, is the culmination of a vision that originated in the early 1900s.  It was then that Edgar Palmer first conceived of the Square as a new municipal center with various buildings for retail, office and residential use; a hotel, post office and a playhouse that would all complement Princeton University, located directly across Nassau Street.   The first buildings were completed in 1937, and a new phase has been added every decade since.

“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,” said David Newton, Vice President of Palmer Square Management.

With Palmer Square’s charming collection of more than 40 brand-name stores, boutiques, restaurants and specialty food shops, as well as the historic Nassau Inn, successfully imbuing Princeton with the energy of an urban-inspired, downtown environment, the new residences provide the sought-after opportunity to live in the center of it all.

“The homes are exquisite and offer the privacy and quiet of an urban oasis, with lushly-landscaped promenades creating a picturesque buffer from the retail landscape, yet residents can easily walk to everything the Square and Princeton University have to offer,” Mr. Newton points out.  “It’s the type of active and convenient lifestyle many people are looking for today.”

In designing the homes, Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners took over where architect Thomas Stapleton’s original Colonial Revival style left off, with a number of distinctive elevations that complement the brick, Federal-style exteriors and Colonial-era structures of the immediate Palmer Square environment.

Palmer Square Townhome Living Room SMALLTwo- and three-bedroom, single-level flats range from 1,623 to 3,195 square feet of living space, priced from $1,590,000.  Multi-level, two- and three-bedroom townhomes range from 2,516 to 4,476 square feet and are priced from $1,640,000 to $2,950,000.

A limited collection of rental residences is also available, with two- and three-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,417 to 3,195 square feet of living space.  The rental residences are available with monthly rents starting at $4,543.

Steel and concrete construction offers the highest level of quality and privacy, while terraces in many homes and 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.

Ideally situated across from the main entrance of Princeton University, Palmer Square allows residents to enjoy Princeton’s cherished suburban ambiance, award-winning public and private schools, renowned university attributes, and world-class entertainment and cultural offerings.  NJ TRANSIT access to New York and Philadelphia (and beyond) is only a short walk from The Residences at Palmer Square, and businesses and shopping venues of the nearby Route 1 corridor are also within easy reach.

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.

The Appeal of Downtown City Living Draws A Couple from London to Philadelphia to Princeton’s Palmer Square

Picture2Dan and Mary Beth Scheid are self-described urban dwellers.  Passionate about the vibrancy, convenience and architectural styles of city settings, the couple lived in London before retiring in 2006 to Philadelphia’s famed Center City District.  While the bustling downtown’s walkable, amenity-rich atmosphere spoke to their urban sensibilities, the classic row house they purchased didn’t offer the ideal layout to age in, leading them to accept that there would be one more move.

With their daughter married to a professor at Princeton University and living in Princeton, the Scheids became frequent visitors to the area and quickly fell in love with the town.  At the time, construction was just getting underway on The Residences at Palmer Square, a new collection of luxury multi-story townhomes and expansive single-level condominium flats integrated into the retail landscape of Palmer Square.  The seeds of temptation had been planted.

“As soon as the new residences became available, we were the first ones knocking on the door,” said Dan.  “The promise of living in the center of downtown Princeton and being able to walk to everything was very enticing.  It was similar to everything we liked about Center City.”

The Scheids also embraced the idea of living in a new-construction home that met their classic design aesthetics, but in a more convenient scenario than what they had in Philadelphia.

“The floor plan of the Palmer Square townhouse was strikingly similar to our row house, including compatible design details and a classical layout, but with clear advantages,” Dan pointed out.  “A brand new home compared to an 1830’s building meant more efficient space, improved energy efficiency and fewer maintenance issues.  The elevator in the townhouse is also a great convenience.”

As one of the first buyers to visit The Residences at Palmer Square, the Scheids were able to walk through numerous homes in various stages of construction, giving them a behind-the-walls view of the bones of each residence.

“I believe that the level of quality of what you don’t get to see is the best predictor of the quality of the end result, and we were extremely impressed with the way these homes were being constructed,” Dan said.  “Not surprisingly, the custom finishes, appliances and systems were all well above standard and built to last.”

Sold on the area and the homes, the Scheids purchased a three-story townhouse with a basement on Chambers Street.

“It’s everything we had hoped for,” said Dan.  “Downtown Princeton offers a best-of-both-worlds living environment that few places can match.  There’s the ease of a comfortable, small-town existence, but it is coupled with an urban vibrancy and international presence that you usually can’t find outside a big city. Princeton also has the advantage of being convenient to both Philadelphia and New York City.  And The Residences at Palmer Square enjoy the best location in Princeton without question.  We regularly attend the McCarter Theatre and Princeton University Art Museum, and love being able to walk to all of the restaurants and shops within Palmer Square and around town.”

The Scheid’s requisite for a more maintenance-free style of living has also been met.

“When you move into a community of this nature, you worry about how responsive and stable the management will be,” said Dan.  “Since this development is overseen by Palmer Square Management and linked to the entire Palmer Square community and structure, you know you’re going to be well taken care of, and that’s exactly what we’ve experienced.  Everyone is very professional, accommodating and courteous, which adds to the quality of life here.”

Palmer Square’s Speaker Series Provides a Unique Cultural Amenity for Discerning Residents

Palmer Square Townhomes Exterior SMALLPRINCETON, NJ, – From respected artists to renowned experts on such relevant subjects as the JOBS Act, Crowdfunding and the turmoil in Russia, the Speaker Series launched earlier this year at The Residences at Palmer Square in downtown Princeton has provided residents with personal access to dynamic and thought-provoking authorities in a private, intimate setting.

Sponsored by Palmer Square Management, which is developing The Residences at Palmer Square directly across Nassau Street from Princeton University, the Speaker Series has engaged, enlightened and entertained residents with profound insights and compelling discussions on a broad scope of issues.

“Palmer Square is surrounded by a tremendous wealth of intellect, business acumen and artistic talent, and we wanted to harness those resources in an exclusive cultural and intellectual forum for our residents,” notes David Newtown, Vice President of Palmer Square Management. “We’re catering to a discerning clientele that appreciates a sophisticated urban atmosphere and cultured environment, and events at Palmer Square like the Speaker Series resonate with them and allow residents to be a part of something truly special.”

The Speaker Series, which is hosted in one of the expansive residences at Palmer Square across from the Arts Council of Princeton, kicked off in February with Our House Your House Pop-Up Gallery which attracted an array of artists from Princeton, New York and Philadelphia. The March installment, Turmoil in Ukraine and Russia’s Uncertain Future, featured a lecture from David Satter, a senior fellow of the Foreign Policy Research Institute and the Hudson Institute and one of the world’s most prominent commentators on Russia. Local Princetonian, Chris Tyrell, headlined the May event, “Revolution in Capital Formation.” Tyrell, a JOBS Act expert and national Crowdfunding leader, addressed how the JOBS Act has fundamentally changed the way businesses of all sizes will raise capital and the effect it will have on businesses globally and in Princeton.

“It’s been a fascinating and informative compilation of topics,” Mr. Newton points out. “We will continue to look for new and creative ways to provide interesting and relevant experiences for our residents.”

The success of the Speaker Series speaks to Princeton’s unique and sought-after balance of intimate, small-town living and an internationally-acclaimed offering of education, arts and culture that is typically reserved for a much larger city. While most associate Princeton’s educational prowess with the namesake university, the area also offers a long list of renowned secondary prep schools, including The Hun School, Princeton Day School and Lawrenceville School.

Significant works of arts and world-class entertainment and cultural offerings can be found at the McCarter Theatre and Princeton University Art Museum. In addition, Princeton offers convenient commutes to New York and Philadelphia via NJ TRANSIT service.

For upscale dining and shopping, Palmer Square features more than 40 brand-name stores, boutiques, restaurants and specialty food shops, as well as the historic Nassau Inn — all ideally situated in a pedestrian-friendly setting.
