NCA has created numerous design studies through the years for this prime site on College Street adjacent to our own offices. 138 College Street is a six-story mixed use structure that is the fruition of decades long plans of development by many public figures in downtown Middletown.
The new 90 market rate luxury apartments offer a variety of open floor plan layouts with an on-site fitness room, rooftop deck and garage parking. The new construction is housed above a concrete framed podium level of commercial space. The building faces Broad and College Streets with a tower entry at the corner and encloses a landscaped courtyard at its center.
The facades complement the original 14-story office tower on the site, but with an updated palette of materials reflect the new mixed use so the new brick matches the original color. The ground floor reinterprets the monumental curtain wall system in a new champagne color and allows vistas through the building into the courtyard beyond.
“This is a paradigm, shift, it’s a game-changer in the development of downtown Middletown. It’s going to bring a lot of people into downtown Middletown … it is our belief that the inclusion of those people in downtown’s landscape will continue to enhance the economy, it will continue to attract additional business.” – Mayor Daniel Drew
