Independence Way is a community thoughtfully-designed by Z+Architects of Allendale, New Jersey.  It includes 62 independent living apartments spread across seven low-rise apartment buildings.  Apartment entries are accessible from an interior hallway.  Second and third floor apartments are accessible by elevator or stairs.

Living options include 26 one-bedroom apartments and 36 two-bedroom apartments. These barrier-free apartments offer ample living space, a full kitchen, a private bedroom and an in-unit washer and dryer.  The one-bedroom apartments average 800 square feet; the two-bedroom apartments average 1,100 square feet.

Each of the apartment buildings is equipped with amenities such as outdoor patios with barbecues and interior community rooms that foster a sense of community.  A walking path unites all the buildings and provides a safe and accessible option for daily exercise.

A highly-trained concierge will oversee day-to-day operations and provide support services as needed.  24/7 video monitoring will provide an added layer of security.

Independence Way was designed to take advantage of all The Green has to offer including on-site transportation through Access Link, employment opportunities at local businesses, educational events at Fairleigh Dickinson University as well as high-quality housing that allows for sense of community and ease of living.

Independence Way is located within The Green, a 268-acre mixed-use corporate campus developed by Rockefeller Group Development Corporation, LLC.  This master-planned development is centrally-located in Morris County.

Address: 1 – 8 Independence Way, Florham Park, NJ 07932*


*Because this is a new development, your GPS system will not recognize the above address. Please use this address instead: AVE Florham Park, 90 Park Avenue, Florham Park, NJ 07932. Once you turn into The Green, Independence Way will be on your right.

In 2016, Rockefeller Group Development Corporation, LLC, Bergen County’s United Way and Madeline Corporation created a partnership that would introduce supportive living into The Green.  Rock Group felt a development of this type would align with the community spirit of The Green.  More importantly, they believed that residents would enjoy a high quality of life on their campus with employment opportunities, recreation, education and transportation readily available.

“It’s a 5-minute village. Walk out your door and you find food, shopping, places to work – a true community. That’s The Green and we are happy to share it with our residents.”
