More time spent at home and flexible work schedules have prompted today’s savvy renters to reevaluate housing needs with many opting to upgrade to more modern, highly-amenitized rental buildings.
Spurred by this pandemic-induced line of thinking, a large populous of young professionals on New Jersey’s Hudson River Gold Coast are trading in older brownstone apartments for elevated living in larger, new construction and highly-amenitized rental buildings with great access to outdoor spaces including pools, BBQs, and firepits, lounges, fitness centers and more.
“I was living with a longtime friend/roommate in a Hoboken walk-up apartment,” said Deanna Cataldi, a professional who recently upgraded to an oversized one-bedroom home at One Ten, the new luxury rental building which is part of The Enclave Collection on Jersey City’s Hoboken border. “With COVID, turning 30 and work patterns changing, we both decided to move into our own place while we could enjoy being home 24/7.”
Ms. Cataldi, who is self-described as “very picky,” knew specifically what she wanted in a new home when she started her search.
“I was looking for an open concept, somewhere I could host,” she added. “I also wanted an in-home washer & dryer, gas stove, a bedroom large enough to fit a king bed and a residence on the top floor with a view. Of course, access to amenities is great when you’re always home.”
She first looked at homes in Hoboken, including a waterfront rental, a newish luxury building on its west side and privately-owned apartments. The initial inventory she viewed either felt old, compromised on location, or didn’t allow dogs. At the urgence of friends who lived in The Enclave Collection, she expanded her search range into Jersey City and specifically, One Ten, a newly built six-story building developed by BNE Real Estate Group, McKinney Properties and Hoboken Brownstone Company at 110 Hoboken Avenue. She was immediately attracted to the modern kitchen and spectacular city view from a top floor apartment at the stylish new building.
“I love having a gas stove and the open concept is perfect for hosting, and I live on the top floor with almost a full view of New York,” she exclaimed. “The outdoor spaces and pool also stood out to me! I am working remotely with no plans to return to the office yet. This new environment definitely played a role in renting at One Ten. I want to be comfortable and love where I live, sleep and work. Eventually, I hope to be commuting back into New York in midtown.”
One Ten’s inclusion in The Enclave Collection provides access to more than 100,000 square feet of lifestyle amenities, including a rooftop pool deck with private cabanas and NYC skyline views, a rooftop bar, multiple entertainment lounges and fitness studios, a bowling alley, movie theatre, and more. One Ten also features a private landscaped outdoor patio with BBQs and firepits, a private dog run and quick access to new community parks, including the planned 1.5-acre Coles Street Park.
The coveted outdoor space is complemented by a full suite of indoor amenities at One Ten, including a resident lounge, modern fitness center with virtual fitness programs, co-working lounge with private offices and a coffee bar. Additional conveniences include 24/7 concierge service, Amazon® package lockers, covered parking, complimentary shuttle service to the Hoboken PATH Station, and nearby Citi Bikes.
A leasing surge at One Ten spurred by young professionals and couples seeking oversized apartments has resulted in nearly 50% of its homes leased since opening earlier this Spring. The building features 238 upscale rental residences that include extra-large studio floor plans offering more than 600 square feet of luxe living space, as well as stylish one-and two-bedroom residences.
The residences feature upscale finishes and appointments, including nine-foot ceilings, kitchens with white quartz countertops, two-tone gray and white cabinets and stainless-steel appliances, gas cooking, full height tiled baths, custom modular closets, and in-home washer & dryers. Select residences offer private outdoor balconies or patios. Monthly rents currently start from $1,875 with new, limited-time incentives that include up to five months free rent.
One Ten is the final phase of the highly popular Enclave Collection, which delivered more than 600 luxury apartments across three separate buildings to the vibrant neighborhood over the past two years. One Ten’s ultra-convenient location provides easy access to some of New Jersey’s most dynamic urban centers. Within minutes, residents can enjoy all that Hoboken and downtown Jersey City have to offer. The building is also convenient to the New Jersey Turnpike extension for an easy commute into north and central New Jersey.
