The George–Renovated By Willow Street Partners and Architect, Paul Sionas of Sionas Architecture, Wins Prestigious “Bricks and Mortar Award,” Presented by the Township of Montclair’s HPC.
The 1902 home, built by Charles Van Vleck, has been completely restored and converted into the sleek, modern, and cozy, George inn, while the carriage house, which originally resided behind the inn at the rear corner of the property, now resides on Claremont Avenue.
In 2017, The Georgian Inn Carriage House which was built in 1902 and weighing in at 6400,000 lbs., was moved by the Wolfe House & Building Movers of Bernville, PA. This was to accomodate the new architectural plans. Watch a time-lapse video of the building move.
The Westerly-256 Park Street–Developed By Molfetta Corporation and Architect, Paul Sionas of Sionas Architecture, Wins Prestigious “Bricks and Mortar Award,” Presented by the Township of Montclair’s HPC.
The newly constructed Wesley building stands out in town with its use of quality materials and its design. Although it’s one story higher and bulkier than adjacent properties, the developer complimented the Watchung Plaza Historic District’s architecture with an engraved building name, layered dental molding and a brick exterior in a variety of colors and patterns to provide the texture and interest of bygone craftsmanship. The building is elegant in its simplicity, combining historical features with a now popular industrial look of iron balcony railings and black awnings.
Hillside Square: A Historic Masterpiece in Montclair
Blown away and inspired—that is the only way I can describe my feelings after touring the Hillside Square renovation project on Hillside Avenue in Montclair. As a parent of a Hillside School student I had watched the renovation project all of last year wondering and waiting. Little did I know they were creating not just any refurbished building, but a bright, energy efficient mini-Montclair museum and a work of art. But before we hear the juicy details of the gorgeous project let us go back in time a bit.
