FLORHAM PARK, NJ—The Rockefeller Group, in collaboration with LodgeWorks Partners, L.P., will bring Archer Hotel Florham Park here.
The new-build boutique property is under development at The Green at Florham Park, the Rockefeller Group’s 268-acre, master-planned development that is currently home to the New York Jets, BASF North American Headquarters and Summit Medical Group. To be situated adjacent to the Summit Medical Group facility, Archer Hotel will feature 161 guestrooms and suites, as well as a neighboring retail site with opportunity for local or national restaurant tenants.
“As we strive to create the highest quality and most sustainable multi-use environment in Northern New Jersey, we believe that Archer Hotel is the ideal fit for The Green at Florham Park,” said Clark Machemer, SVP and regional development officer, The Rockefeller Group’s New Jersey/Pennsylvania office. “Much in line with the environment we’ve created throughout the rest of The Green, the hotel will provide guests with a distinctive experience—sophisticated and refined design.”
The new Archer Hotel will serve as an amenity for neighboring companies which, in addition to the Jets, BASF and Summit Medical Group, include Novartis, Honeywell, ADP, Merck and Bayer. The hotel will offer a variety of services, such as an expansive on-site fitness center, indoor pool and bocce ball court. Archer Hotel will offer 4,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor event and meeting space; 2,000 sq. ft. of pre-function space; and 5,000 sq. ft. of outdoor entertaining venues. F&B offerings will include an à la carte breakfast; a full bar with evening small plates and appetizers; and indoor and outdoor seating with social gathering spaces.
While LodgeWorks has previously brought to market Archer Hotel in midtown Manhattan’s Garment District, with locations under construction in Austin, TX, and downtown Napa, CA, the Florham Park location aims to be unique to its locale as each hotel is designed to provide an independent, local experience.
