Modera Uptown (Elizabeth)
Modera Uptown is located on the access road of the busy I-75 Central Expressway. The property is made up of two sites that create an L-shape, each with different zoning requirements. To maximize the site's potential, HLR designed a three-story structure with the club on the first floor and residential units above, adjacent to the pool. The main building is a 5-over-3 podium with six floors above grade. It includes the leasing office on the ground floor and fitness on the third floor, overlooking a large outdoor courtyard. To play off the dynamic nature of the freeway, the balconies move randomly along the facade of the building, which is punctuated at the main corner with an LED-lit frame.
