There’s certainly no shortage of new residential developments on tap right here in Jersey City. However, many other Cities along New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast” also have exciting projects underway. Here’s a look at a new rental building that has recently made the news:
Bijou Properties and The Marketing Directors are executing one of the most successful leasing programs in the Hudson County market at Park + Garden, a new collection of upscale apartment homes and first-class recreational amenities and services in the Hudson County City of Hoboken.
More than 50% of the 212 luxury residences in the 12-story building have been leased just three months after the property officially opened to the public. Move-ins are well underway as Park + Garden quickly becomes the signature address along New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast.”
Designed for LEED® Gold certification, Park + Garden is the third LEED-certified building from locally-based Bijou Properties in uptown Hoboken and boasts innovative, environmentally-sensitive features to minimize its impact on the environment.
“Bijou Properties has a strong reputation for creating trailblazing properties designed to elevate urban settings with high quality homes, community-oriented services and amenities and responsible development practices,” says Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive leasing and marketing agent. “Park + Garden has set a new standard by delivering a unique lifestyle experience that combines modern design and amenities with eco-friendly features, dedicated common spaces and sponsored neighborhood events.”
Located at 1450 Garden Street on the north end of Hoboken, Park + Garden features a collection of well-appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom residences. Thoughtfully-designed residences feature high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, bamboo flooring and kitchens with granite countertops, sleek cabinetry and Energy-star stainless steel appliances. Select homes boast spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. Monthly rents at Park + Garden start at $3,250. Fully-furnished model homes are available to tour.
A full suite of recreational and social amenities enhance residents’ lifestyles, including an attended lobby, state-of-the art gym, multiple club rooms, courtyards, outdoor pool and landscaped deck, additional laundry facilities, bike storage and a 383-car on-site fully automated parking facility. Renters also have access to a shared multi-use recreational room/basketball court.
Situated directly across the Hudson River from midtown Manhattan, Hoboken is well-known as one of the most dynamic City environments along the Hudson County “Gold Coast” with a bustling main street, exciting nightlife and well-rounded recreational and social opportunities. Park + Garden offers a pedestrian-friendly design with a private street entrance to create an intimate atmosphere while allowing residents to fully embrace all the elements of this walkable residential setting and its easy access to mass transportation.
“Uptown Hoboken blends the vibrancy of an urban downtown with a family-friendly atmosphere featuring multiple parks, playgrounds, new athletic fields and the scenic Hudson River Waterfront Walkway,” Ms. Urgo adds.
“There’s never a shortage of activities, with boutique shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars along Washington and 14th Streets and the nearby Bow Tie movie theatre. The City also hosts numerous waterfront concerts and seasonal fairs and street festivals. Within minutes of the Lincoln Tunnel and the 39th Street NY Waterway terminal, Park + Garden also brings all that Manhattan has to offer within close reach.”
Bijou Properties also sponsors a summer Farmer’s Market held right outside the doors of Park + Garden. Entering its 4th season, the Garden Street Farmer’s Market is located at Garden Street Mews and held every Saturday from June to November. Filled with products from New Jersey farmers and the local Hoboken community, as well as festive music, the Farmer’s market was created by Bijou Properties to support sustainable agriculture, small businesses and make farm-fresh produce available to the community.
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Park + Garden is the first large-scale rental building to open in Hoboken in years. The design features two 12-story residential towers consisting of a lavish amenities center and an enclosed parking garage. There’s also 13,000 square feet of street-level retail space and 32,000 square feet of educational space.
The community’s onsite Leasing Center is located at 1450 Garden Street, Hoboken, N.J. 07030
