The building enjoys three separate and unique active terraces; a world-class 20,000-plus-square-foot dining experience on the retail level, which will be open to the public; and an expansive landscaped rooftop complete with wellness areas for yoga and outdoor movement classes, entertainment and gardens, which will supply food and beverage offerings in the space.
The move to M Station by Sanofi represents a shift from a sprawling, multibuilding suburban campus to a seven-story, build-to-suit property in the heart of walkable, transit-oriented city within Morris County. Known for its lively arts, entertainment and restaurant scene, Morristown will enable a seamless work-life balance for Sanofi’s 1,900 employees, who will occupy the building upon completion in the first quarter of 2025.
“The topping out of M Station West is a landmark moment in redefining the modern workplace across New Jersey,” Steve Pozycki, founder and CEO of SJP Properties, said. “State-of-the-art, vertically integrated buildings are attracting the most influential corporations in the world. Sanofi joins Deloitte, which moved its headquarters to M Station East last year, and Valley Bank, which celebrated its grand opening at our new Speedwell Avenue property this fall. These tenants are turning to SJP for property solutions in amenity-rich locations with unrivaled aesthetics and the most advanced infrastructures ever built in the state.”
M Station was designed by Gensler to achieve LEED certification. The property’s floor-to-ceiling glass and metal panel façade will offer abundant light throughout, while its innovative side core design will enable maximum openness and flexibility on each floor. Further, energy efficiency will be enhanced with solar reflective roofing to enable daylight harvesting.
M Station’s two buildings will be bridged by a 1,000-car parking structure that includes public parking for the development’s on-site retail and electric vehicle charging stations. To enhance walkability and create a vibrant pedestrian experience, both buildings are set back 45 feet from Morris Street, creating a 10,000-square-foot landscaped promenade and two public plazas with seating, improving the area’s connectivity, particularly between the nearby New Jersey Transit station and the historic Morristown Green.
“I am thrilled to welcome Sanofi to its new headquarters in Morristown. SJP and Scotto Properties have successfully executed our vision of a project which would invigorate our business district, attract leading-edge companies and reinforce our position as one of the top towns in the country to live and work,” Morristown Mayor Tim Dougherty said.
