A Residence to Showcase the Arts Culture of Montclair

Located on Bloomfield Avenue, the new collection of 200 rental residences features a variety of open layouts with modern finishes, all complemented by an array of lifestyle amenities highlighted by a roof deck with views of the Manhattan skyline. The six-story building also includes 38,000 square feet of street-level retail and arts space opening to an outdoor pedestrian plaza, the Wellmont Arts Plaza, that will open to the public soon this summer, enhancing the vibrant new arts district anchored by the Wellmont Theater located across the street. 


Monthly rents at Two South Willow start at $1,760 for studios, $2,330 for one-bedrooms, and $3,560 for two-bedroom apartments. Immediate occupancy is available

“After years of developing properties throughout the tri-state area, we were thrilled to be able to build in such a vibrant community like Montclair,” David Barry, CEO of Ironstate Development Company told Montclair Girl. “The dynamic, local culture heavily influenced the design of the building and development of the new Wellmont Arts Plaza to create a new destination for Montclair residents.”

Two South Willow’s exterior echoes the historic architecture and brickwork of adjacent buildings. Inside, you’ll find stylish apartments with bright, open, living spaces, modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances, large built-in closets including walk-in closets in many of the residences, in-home washer/dryers, and balconies and terraces in several units. A wide variety of layouts ensure that everyone can find an apartment to best suit their needs.


Shared social spaces designed to foster natural opportunities for residents to meet and interact include a private courtyard, a fitness center with Peloton bike, a rooftop study with a fireplace, and a roof deck with fire pits, BBQ grills, and a shuffleboard court. The building also offers keyless entry access and on-site covered parking.


The residential space will reflect the art district’s cultural influence with a tile mural in the lobby and a unique front desk fashioned from a whole tree trunk. Curated art and plants can also be found throughout the common areas giving a warm and textured feel to the building.


A Vibrant Community Offering Arts, Retail, and Entertainment

Just outside the door lies a burgeoning arts destination, with a portion of Seymour Street being converted into a pedestrian-only space, creating the Wellmont Arts Plaza. The plaza will include extensive landscaping, outdoor seating, and multiple art installations, as well as space to host open-air performances and other events, offering a vibrant gathering place throughout the year. Retail tenants Gravity Vault, opening soon this Summer, and One River School will be the first of many new businesses contributing to the fabric of the new plaza.


Two South Willow will not only place residents in the heart of a new arts district, but in the heart of Montclair itself, just steps from retail, restaurants, and mass-transit access. Montclair is known both for its vibrant shopping and dining options, in addition to its quiet tree-lined streets with beautiful homes. Residents of Two South Willow will find cultural treasures at the Montclair Art Museum and cozy art galleries throughout town, fine dining and eclectic international cuisine on Bloomfield Avenue, sidewalk cafes and boutique shops on Church Street, and numerous parks, bike trails, and dog parks nearby. The annual Montclair Film Festival attracts filmmakers from around the world, and the Montclair Jazz Festival brings in talented musicians for two weeks of outdoor performances every year.
