DMR Architects is progressing on a host of residential, governmental and education projects in New Jersey, with design and construction ongoing in spite of the coronavirus crisis.
The Hasbrouck Heights-based firm announced Thursday that close to all of the 150 projects within its nearly $1 billion pipeline have moved forward throughout the pandemic. For instance, its design and construction teams are near completion on The Residences at 30 Court, a 52-unit luxury apartment building in Morristown, and have begun work on the 555-unit Wyndham Place at Ridgefield Park.
DMR’s residential portfolio now spans 4,500 units, the firm said. That includes completed projects such as The Grande at Metro Park, a 355-unit development in Woodbridge, and the conversion of the historic Annin Flag factory in Verona into the 52-unit Annin Lofts.
The firm also noted that its teams are working at 80 schools, including new schools in Carteret, Plainfield and Paterson and renovation projects at 44 facilities in New York City.
“I’m very proud that across all our practice areas we’ve maintained our culture of collaboration despite our staff being physically separated by shelter-in-place directives,” said Lloyd Rosenberg, DMR Architects’ CEO and president. “Each of our team members are trained in the most innovative planning and communication tools available, and take personal pride in each project to ensure that the long-term goals of our clients are met in the same way they would without a quarantine and its complications.”
What’s more, DMR is working on public facilities throughout New Jersey, such as municipal buildings in Montgomery, Ridgefield and Red Bank. The firm’s municipal planning team is also working as in Dunellen and Roselle, following its role in Hackensack’s acclaimed downtown area revitalization and a planned town center along East Brunswick’s Route 18 corridor.
