As home to some of the New York metro area’s finest dining, an enriched arts, culture and music scene and eclectic shopping and dynamic nightlife, it’s easy to see why Jersey City, NJ has the state’s fastest growing population, according to the 2020 Census. Helping to fuel an increase of 45,000 residents has been a considerable number of former Manhattan renters lured across the Hudson River to Jersey City where they can find luxury apartments in highly-amenitized buildings that still boast great proximity to the region’s major work centers.
Leading the pack is the Vantage Collection, which has seen a notable uptick in New York City residents since leasing opened for its second offering of 452 homes. Tucked into the waterfront in Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor neighborhood, the 45-story tower offers over 70,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities and a location near NY Waterway ferry service to downtown Manhattan and blocks from the Grove Street PATH Station. All these attributes came into play when Alex Marshall and his fiancé elected to upgrade their apartment lifestyle in a post COVID world.
Mr. Marshall was living in a high-rise elevator building in New York City when he and his fiancé decided they needed more space inside and out. The couple started searching apartments in Astoria, Bushwick, Boerum Hill and Long Island City.
“We needed more space in our apartment and in the surrounding neighborhood,” Mr. Marshall said. “We wanted a building which was in a quieter area, had homes with a larger kitchen and more closet space and provide access to outdoor amenities and onsite office facilities. Welooked across New York and New Jersey, but most apartments did not meet our criteria.”
Undaunted, Mr. Marshall continued his research online where he discovered Vantage Collection. Although unfamiliar with Jersey City, he decided to visit the striking new building and see what it had to offer. From homes to amenities to location, it checked all the boxes.
“The apartments have well-designed floorplans with open kitchens, walk-in closets and incredible views,” added Mr. Marshall, who rented a south facing two-bedroom home with uninterrupted views of Liberty State Park and the Statue of Liberty. “The building is in a very peaceful neighborhood and has a large communal space, outside pool and large gym. I am currently working remotely and the office facilities at the Vantage Collection played a critical role in my decision to live here.”
Homes at Vantage Collection are competitively priced from the mid-$2,000s and offered with limited-time incentives. The building features a selection of studio, one- and two-bedroom residences with some of the largest floorplans in the Jersey City market.
Developed by Fisher Development Associates, Vantage Collection boasts contemporary flooplans with designer kitchens with GE Stainless Steel appliances and quartz counters, lavish baths with custom vanities, Kohler fixtures and glass enclosed showers, recessed LED lighting, in-home washer and dryer units and innovative energy-efficient systems. Homes in the glass curtain wall building offer floor-to-ceiling windows to provide plenty of light and foster a healthier lifestyle.
Designed by S9 Architecture, Vantage Collection provides access to a comprehensive roster of social and recreational amenities. Exclusive to renters in the latest building are a 45th floor Sky Lounge, fully equipped fitness center, yoga studio, children’s playroom, business center, co-working lounge with private work pods, game room, media room, sculpture garden, covered parking, dog wash and more. Hotel-inspired services include 24-hour attended lobby, lobby lounge, Amazon package lockers, bicycle storage and more.
Expansive outdoor space is highlighted by a 6th floor deck featuring two outdoor pools, full court basketball court, great lawn, fire pits, 12-station BBQ area, outdoor children’s play area, dedicated outdoor dog run, outdoor fitness area, terrace and bar, shared gardening beds, and lounge and tiered seating, all with uninterrupted views of the New York Harbor, Manhattan skyline and Statute of Liberty.
The Vantage Collection lies in the coveted Liberty Harbor North neighborhood in Downtown Jersey City. Residents have tremendous access to transportation into Manhattan via the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH stations and New York Waterway ferry service. The buildings are adjacent to the charming Paulus Hook and Van Vorst Park neighborhoods and just steps away from the vibrant dining/nightlife scene on Newark Avenue. All the natural delights of Liberty State Park are also nearby. The new tower itself will deliver 6,300 square feet of retail space to be filled by highly desirable neighborhood retailers.
Bozzuto, the renowned property management company for Vantage Collection, has opened leasing for the second tower with fully furnished model apartments. For additional information on Vantage Collection, please call 844.288.6375, or visit www.vantagejc.com.
