While Jersey City’s rental market has been making news, Hoboken certainly has its share of amazing new buildings and neighborhoods. 7 Seventy House, a new 424-home luxe-apartment complex near the 9th Street Light Rail Station, falls squarely into that category. Developed by Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation, the building has achieved the impressive mark of 50% leased just five months after opening to the public. The developers of 7 Seventy recently announced the milestone with The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
Offering modern studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences along with one of the most comprehensive amenity packages in the Hudson County market, 7 Seventy House has successful drawn a mix of renters from both sides of the Hudson River, according to a press release. Move-ins are well underway at the MHS Architects-designed building, which is now home to over 150 residents.
Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, noted in the press release, “Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation have been trailblazers on Hoboken’s western edge, creating cutting-edge properties that accentuate the neighborhood’s desirability and its ease of commute. 7 Seventy House embodies all these attributes with a rental lifestyle unlike any other found in Hoboken. Not only does it elevate urban living with stylish homes and a seemingly endless list of amenities, but the incorporation of public open space, plazas and park and playgrounds has created a sense of strong community that permeates throughout the building.”
Residences at 7 Seventy House feature open floor plans with red oak engineered wood floors and expansive windows that bathe the homes in natural light. Kitchens boast Quartz countertops, white ceramic tile backsplashes, custom cabinetry, and a premium GE stainless-steel appliance package, with in residence Bosch washer and dryers. Luxury baths are outfitted with grey mineral stone tile and Moen & Kohler fixtures. A selection of homes include private outdoor balconies and terraces up to 800 square feet.
The landmark building features a 14-story high rise tower with multiple terraced setbacks, a glass and brick exterior and a distinctive columned entryway. Monthly rents start in the $2,600s, with limited-time incentives that include one-month free on a 13-month lease. Immediate occupancy is available.
Enhancing resident lifestyle at 7 Seventy House is more than 90,000 square feet of resort-style amenities, including a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, expansive amenity deck with BBQ stations, multiple outdoor gardens, bocce ball court, state-of-the-art multi-level gym, play room, game room, indoor bike storage, on-site dog park, dog grooming room, alcove with co-working lounge and coffee station and a conference room with access to an outdoor lounge with a fire pit. The amenity spaces are strategically located on multiple floors with views that include the Manhattan skyline. Perfectly designed by Brooklyn-based interior designer Factioned, the amenities are merchandised with chic and fashionable furnishings and appointments that blend an industrial flair with a modern lifestyle environment.
Beyond the private amenities, 7 Seventy House will offer services that include a 24-hour attended lobby, Hello Alfred concierge service and covered parking. There’s also approximately 25,000 square feet of ground floor retail space that will serve residents and the Hoboken community.
Additionally, the building is just steps from Hoboken’s 9th Street Light Rail Station and blends an upscale living experience with the convenience of quick access throughout New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast.” Services include, Hoboken’s PATH and New Jersey Transit and Ferry terminals that travel to Manhattan. Closer to home, there’s a wide range of services and cultural attractions available in the Monroe Center, the premier arts and business community in Hoboken, which boasts artist studios, children’s activities, fitness facilities, eateries and much more.
7 Seventy House is a multi-faceted mix-use project that was developed in conjunction with a two-acre resiliency park donated by Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation to Hoboken. The initial installation of the park will open this summer and includes a children’s playground, a one-acre green space designed for active and passive recreation uses, a state-of-the-art 6,835 square-foot community gymnasium and infrastructure to capture over 450,000 gallons of rainwater to reduce flooding. A second phase is expected to open shortly and will include a one-acre public plaza with step seating and tilted lawn panel, play sculpture and a large plaza to accommodate vendors and seasonal markets. The project is part of the larger redevelopment of Hoboken‘s once-industrial western edge into a vibrant and active pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.
