One of the first steps in the launch of Sabrina Browne’s professional
career was to find the perfect community to call home after she completed her studies. Like many young-singles before her, a great access to the work and entertainment centers in Manhattan and the vibrant, welcoming scene of the Hudson County, N.J. City of Hoboken made it the ideal place to begin her path.
Ms. Browne established her connection to this mile-square city in 2016 after graduating Summa Cum Laude with a master’s degree from Seton Hall University in South Orange, N.J. She first shared an apartment with a roommate at 4th and Jackson on Hoboken’s west side. As she ascended and grew in her professional and personal life, Ms. Browne began to search for upgraded rental options that would better suit her advancing lifestyle needs.
“While my previous building had a welcoming community, I desired more amenities to work, learn and play,” she says.
Once the calendar turned to 2020, Ms. Browne dedicated herself to finding a new apartment, relying on previous experiences that dictated January to March as prime months for new rental listings in Hudson County. She initially cast a wide net, considering studio and one-bedroom apartment homes at Cast Iron Lofts on the Jersey City/Hoboken border, as well as apartments in Hoboken on Jefferson Street, Monroe Street and along the Hudson River waterfront.
“It was important for me to find a place where I could maximize my budget in terms of size, space, amenities and community,” Ms. Browne points out. “The last one is so important to me, as I love to feel welcome when I walk through the door every day.”
The communal environment she sought was front and center at 7 Seventy House, an upscale new rental building developed by Bijou Properties and partner Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation on Hoboken’s fastest emerging western edge. The collection of 424 luxury homes checked all the boxes for Ms. Browne, starting with its close-knit, welcoming community and extending to its socially-infused atmosphere and designer homes.
“7 Seventy House attracted me in so many ways, including its exterior and interior design,” she says. “The building seamlessly blends modern design with eco-chic and that is so fabulous to me. When I walked through 7 Seventy House and saw the studio and one-bedroom floor plans, I immediately fell in love with the high ceilings.”
The resort-inspired amenities so important to Ms. Browne are in abundance at 7 Seventy House, which boasts world-class amenities and service. It’s one of the most comprehensive packages in Hoboken and includes 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 including the Manhattan skyline.
Beyond the private amenities, 7 Seventy House offers services that include a 24-hour attended lobby and Hello Alfred concierge service.
“Having access to numerous, five-star amenities, all in one building, is a dream come true,” she says. “Topping the list is the rooftop and pool, the two-story gym and laundry services. Of course, there’s also multiple gardens. bike racks, workstations, rooftop, lounges, gardens and so much more. I love it all! Previously, when I needed a change of scenery or a quiet place to work, I would go to Starbucks or the waterfront. Now I have endless options from 7 Seventy House’s outdoor spaces. At home, I have loved the virtual fitness classes offered through Hello Alfred and 24/7concierge service.”
When not enjoying all the recreational and social pursuits at 7 Seventy House, Ms. Browne will relax in her stylish one-bedroom apartment and its soaring ceilings and magnificent views.
“When I toured 7 Seventy House, my eyes lit up when I saw the layout of my exact apartment and its view was everything,” she comments. “As noted, the high ceiling is amazing since few apartments in Hoboken have them. The view is so nice and brings in tons of natural light. Third, the bathroom is perfect because I can shower or soak in the bath after a long workday, plus it’s incredibly spacious for all my beauty products. Lastly, my closet or ‘fashion closet,’ as I love to say because it holds all my clothes, shoes and purses incredibly well. The closet is spacious, fabulous and fun.”
7 Seventy House is steps from the 9th Street Light Rail Station and backs up to the famed Jersey City cliffs on Hoboken’s west side, providing it one of the city’s most unique locations in terms of ambiance and commutability, other favorable characteristics Ms. Browne has trumped since her move.
“7 Seventy House is a fabulous location for those seeking an elevated, luxury experience in Hoboken,” she said. “The property invites you into a new world in the Mile Square where you are able to access a pool, rooftop, gardens and panoramic views of New York City. You also feel incredibly safe in this building with the 24/7 concierge and high-tech security system. The building’s proximity to-and-from the PATH Station and its free shuttle service was also critical and allowed me to maintain a seamless commute into Manhattan.”
