Situated between a medical center and a single-family residential district, Avalon Old Bridge is a compact, pedestrian-friendly community thoughtfully sited on 20 acres of a larger 101-acre site. Preserving the surrounding natural woodlands, this 252 unit Energy Star-certified development features a diverse mix of two- and three-story small-scale housing types, including 11 townhome buildings, six buildings with stacked flats, and a single courtyard building with elevator access. Complementary to the scale and character of the surrounding area, the buildings are designed to contribute towards attractive, coherent, and walkable streets with the incorporation of front entrances, well-proportioned windows, and architectural features such as balconies, bay windows, and gable ends.
The focal point of the master plan is a 6,400 square foot clubhouse designed to act as a neighborhood wellness hub and community center. Streets, walking paths, and view corridors are oriented toward this shared amenity space, which includes an outdoor pool, resident lounge areas, grilling stations, a state-of-the-art fitness and yoga studio, playground, and dog park.
A sophisticated color palette of rich navy blues and teals combine with gold and black metal accents to create a dynamic and contemporary amenity space. Custom designed multi-dimensional and angular screen dividers distinguish programmatic areas, while vibrant color accents, artwork, and contrasting floor-to-ceiling finishes add unique elements to the overall aesthetic.
Both outdoor parking and garages are located to the rear of structures so as not to compromise the quality, interest, or presence of the buildings, particularly when viewed from the streets and open spaces.
