The Hazel Launches Leasing in Jersey City’s Bergen-Layfette Neighborhood

Leasing has officially kicked off at The Hazel, a new collection of 114 stylish residences and modern amenities in Jersey City’s historic and culturally-rich Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood. 

The new six-story building opens with an onsite leasing office and furnished model homes, according to development partners Alpine Residential and Fields Grade which tapped The Marketing Directors as exclusive marketing and leasing agent.  The property will be managed by the Developer’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.

Located at 89 Monitor Street, The Hazel delivers a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments to a dynamic neighborhood setting that marries a convenient location easily accessible to Liberty State Park, Downtown Jersey City and Manhattan with a vibrant art, dining, and nightlife scene. Homes are available at net-effective monthly rents starting at $2,290 with a limited-time grand opening incentive of up to one month free on select lease terms.  Initial occupancy is scheduled for February 15.    

“This neighborhood continues to attract new residents who see it as an appealing alternative to the towering high-rises and congestion of Downtown Jersey City,” said Bill Rosato, Managing Partner of Alpine Residential.  “Liberty State Park, with its more than 1,200 acres of public open space and a waterfront walkway, and Berry Lane Park offer a green oasis for relaxation, recreation, and peace of mind, while an ever-growing list of places to eat, drink and shop bolster the area’s unique vibe.  We’re excited to now introduce The Hazel to Bergen-Lafayette as a modern residential complement to the neighborhood’s charm, convenience and connectivity.”

Inspired Design, Modern Living 

Designed by Fogerty Finger Architecture, The Hazel features a distinctive façade comprised of gray and green brick punctuated by large floor-to-ceiling windows as a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage. 

Inside, light-filled residences are generously sized and outfitted with upscale finishes and appointments including nine-foot-plus ceilings, luxury plank flooring, custom modular closets, complimentary window treatments, in-home washer and dryer and smart lock entry.   Gourmet kitchens boast stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, soft-close cabinetry, full height backsplashes, and under-cabinet lighting, while spa-like baths are lavishly appointed.  Select residences offer a bonus den for added living space and flexibility.

Thoughtfully Curated Amenities

Residents will appreciate The Hazel’s pet-friendly, smoke-free atmosphere, as well as its full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities, social spaces, and premium services.  These include an onsite Concierge, rooftop terrace with barbecues and mist station, Sky Lounge with New York City views, outdoor courtyards, co-working space, library with fireplace, state-of-the-art fitness center, demonstration kitchen and an amenity guest suite.  Additional conveniences include a package room, bike storage, covered parking with electric car charging stations, onsite electric scooters, and ground floor retail space. 

An exciting new amenity added to The Hazel is TuLu,an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products. This will be available specifically to Hazel residents and will also come with some fun give aways and perks for first time users.

“The Hazel offers an elevated lifestyle experience for residents who recognize the authentic character and convenience of this burgeoning neighborhood,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors.  “We expect this new offering to quickly resonate with the public and become the signature address in Bergen-Lafayette.”

A Greener Side of Jersey City Connected to it All

Lying just west of Downtown Jersey City, Bergen-Lafayette is considered by many as a hidden gem for its open green spaces, small-town neighborhood charm and eclectic lifestyle options.  The Hazel lies in the heart of this cherished neighborhood and is just a few blocks from Communipaw Avenue, the vibrant business corridor that offers hip and authentic bars, eateries, shops, and everyday conveniences.  Local favorites include The Grind Shop, a specialty coffee shop; the popular Pacific Pizza, Harry’s Daughter Gastro Pub, Café Lafayette, Nurish, the Brooklyn-based healthy eatery crossing the Hudson River to open its second location in Bergen-Lafayette, and more. 

Convenient access to Downtown Jersey has never been easier thanks to the opening of the Liberty State Park Bridge.  This extension of Jersey Avenue was a landmark moment for Bergen-Lafayette residents who now enjoy greater connectivity to Jersey City’s downtown district, complete with bike lanes and sidewalks.  The new scenic route through the park strengthens existing means of connecting neighborhoods, including the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Liberty Park Station, which is just steps from The Hazel, while nearby Route 78 provides a pathway to the Holland Tunnel, as well as points west.  

For outdoor recreation, Liberty State Park offers a green oasis in the middle of the metropolis, with more than 1,200 acres of open space, a two-mile waterfront promenade, an outdoor performance area, and a celebrated restaurant with sweeping views of the Hudson River, Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty. The park also offers a full-service marina, ferry service to Manhattan, charter boat excursions and maritime sightseeing tours.  Also anchoring the neighborhood is the Liberty Science Center with its ever-evolving interactive museum experience and the largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in the Western Hemisphere.
