New Rental Building by Fields Grade and Blumberg & Freilich Equities Delivers an Innovative Approach to the Resident Lifestyle Experience
The Agnes, a new collection of 145 thoughtfully-designed residences complemented by a full suite of amenities and culturally-infused programming, has launched it much-anticipated leasing program in Jersey City.
Developed by partners Fields Grade and Blumberg & Freilich Equities, the new design-driven, five-story building opened its rental program from an on-site leasing center with a fully furnished model residence.
The Agnes boasts a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom homes designed with the needs of today’s renter in mind. Monthly rents for the stylish new residences start at $1,480 with grand opening incentives that include up to four months free for a limited time. Immediate occupancy is available.
Found throughout the residences are designer features such as premium stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, custom kitchen cabinet colors, washer and dryer, built-in custom closets, built-in desks, and oak plank flooring. Selected floorplans include dens for additional living and entertaining space and the flexibility to utilize as a home office or for visiting guests. Residents can customize their contemporary living spaces with stunning paint colors chosen by the design team through a partnership with Backdrop.
“Jersey City’s west side is a rejuvenated neighborhood mixing long-time restaurants, bars and retail with a collection of new and trendy shops, cafés and more,” said Greg Russo, a principal with Fields Grade. “The Agnes enters this market with stylish residences and a thoughtful and innovative amenity package that will enhance the resident experience.”
With a strong focus on blending contemporary living spaces and design with personalized hospitality principles, the team of professionals behind The Agnes has created a boutique hotel experience that will set it apart in the marketplace. Under the creative direction of Fields Grade’s Dasha Faires, every detail from curated scents, sounds and touchpoints throughout the building to unique social spaces, custom programs and community collaboration have been implemented to meaningfully connect with residents.
The social heartbeat of The Agnes will be its more than 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities and sophisticated resident programs and services. Highlights include an outdoor pool and landscaped courtyard, club room, public and private workspaces, a relaxing lounge with a fireplace, state-of-the-art fitness center, communal kitchen, playroom, bike storage and dog run and dog wash. Creatives will find inspiration for their upcoming projects or just a great setting to enjoy some free time at the building’s HUSH artbook library. Street-level retail space will include a wellness-focused café called The Nell featuring local coffee roaster Afficianado Roasters.
The Agnes will also showcase a unique collaboration with contemporary artists, photographers, literary experts, designers, and others to create a deep connection between residents and Jersey City’s celebrated creative spirit.

With The Agnes as its hub, Fields Grade has plans to concentrate on the arts and hopes to create skill development opportunities for community members.
