In 2009 Corey Jones with his twin brother and noted chef Craig Jones started a family-owned sauce company Jonesen Barbecue Sauce (https://jonesenbarbecue.com/), a coffee-infused sauce inspired by their love for barbeque. Little did Corey know at the time but his love for outdoor cooking and barbeque sauces would play a role in choosing a new home for him and his fiancé Domaninque over a decade later.
Corey and Domaninque had been renting a privately-owned condominium in Union City, NJ when they decided to begin looking for a building that was quieter and provided a stronger sense of community as they prepared for their future life together. With Domaninque poised to return to work in Manhattan, the couple wanted a contemporary apartment with space for a home office, fashionable interior features, modern kitchen where Corey could enjoy cooking, abundant amenities and a location on a New York City commuter line.
The couple visited apartments in traditional Hudson County commuter hotbeds, but none had all the right ingredients. Luckily, they soon uncovered the hidden residential treasure of Bayonne, NJ and its newest luxury rental Skye Lofts North, a collection of 98 upscale residences in the heart of the city’s downtown shopping, dining and business district. Located at 260 Avenue E, the eye-catching six-story building is also right next to the 22nd Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station with service to neighboring Jersey City and Hoboken where PATH trains connect into downtown and midtown Manhattan.
“We initially looked at a few different areas along the New York City commuter line before we discovered Skye Lofts North,” Corey said. “We weren’t familiar with Bayonne prior to learning about the building.”
Lying in the shadow of Jersey City and just 10 miles and a short commute to Manhattan, Bayonne has increasingly seen its luxury apartments filled with renters migrating from the Hudson River Gold Coast. Apartment seekers such as Corey and Domaninque are drawn to buildings like Skye Lofts North where they find designer homes, world-class amenities and commuter-friendly locations at attractive pricing
“We were really drawn to the interior finishes in the homes and the building’s shared amenities,” Corey continued. “One of the biggest draws were the BBQ grilling areas that overlook the city. Being a foodie and BBQ sauce purveyor, this hooked me. Skye Lofts North is also commuter friendly and discovering the light rail was within walking distance made our decision easier.”
Now more than 60% leased, Skye Lofts North features a collection of well-appointed one and two -bedroom residences lined with upscale appointments that include 10’ ceiling heights in the traditional floorplans and soaring 22’ ceiling heights in the lofts, lux hardwood plank flooring, and custom kitchens with Frigidaire stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops, two-toned cabinetry and Kohler faucets. Lavish bathrooms are adorned with porcelain tiled floors, mirrored medicine cabinets and custom vanities. Select homes feature loft-style living spaces.
Homes are attractively priced at $$2,100 (net effective) with two months free on a 14-month lease*.
Skye Lofts North offers a full suite of amenities to create a boutique hotel-like environment. The building offers a Penthouse communal space with an outdoor terrace and rooftop lounge, fully equipped fitness center, and virtual reality game room. There’s also a virtual doorman intercom system, bike storage, private storage and indoor garage parking.
Skye Lofts North is perfectly situated between the local boutiques, shops, dining and services along the historic Broadway corridor and brand name retail outlets, such as Bayonne Crossing and South Cove Commons, located right off Route 440. In addition to its location near the 22nd Street Light Rail, there’s also easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Routes 78 and 440 and the Holland Tunnel.
