The Montclarion at Bay Street Station, a 40-unit apartment building in downtown Montclair, has been awarded LEED® certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for achievement in green homebuilding and design.
Located at 125 Bloomfield Avenue, the five-story building has been LEED certified to the Silver level. The Montclarion at Bay Street Station achieved the recognition by implementing practical and measurable strategies and solutions aimed at achieving high performance in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality.
The Montclarion at Bay Street Station’s commuter-friendly location, steps from New Jersey Transit’s Bay Street train station, reduces dependence on automobiles. New Jersey Transit buses also stop outside the complex.
“The Montclarion at Bay Street Station is an excellent example of green residential development and we couldn’t be prouder of this all-important achievement,” developer Richard Polton says. “To be recognized by the USGBC is a testament to the hard work of a dedicated team of experienced professionals working toward the common goal of responsible design, development and improving the environment.
“The LEED Silver certification also means that tenants have very efficient systems, lowering utility bills every month. This makes the Montclarion even more affordable to our renters.”
The Montclarion at Bay Street Station features one- and two-bedroom rental residences, including only seven exclusive top-floor Penthouse apartments with expansive outdoor terraces.
