Le Léo, a new luxury rental building featuring 99 well-appointed residences and a full suite of modern amenities and social spaces, has launched leasing in Jersey City’s historic Journal Square.
Located at 244 St. Paul’s Avenue, Le Léo is just a short walk to the Journal Square PATH Station and centrally located in a culturally-rich, well-connected neighborhood that is regaining its distinction as the business, arts and shopping hub of Jersey City – with a modern-day residential facelift.
The distinctive six-story building was developed by Park Stone Management and Fields Grade, two prominent companies with strong ties to the Jersey City marketplace. The partnership has tapped The Marketing Directors to serve as the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
Le Léo opens with studio, one- and two-bedroom homes at prices starting in the $2,500’s and Grand Opening incentives that include one month free. The residences are available for immediate occupancy.
“Journal Square’s return as the center of Jersey City is on full display throughout the neighborhood which is teeming with dining, shops, entertainment and culture, all centered around a transit-rich infrastructure,” said Jonathan Feifer, Founder/Owner of Park Stone Management. “The area has also emerged as a residential destination, drawing residents from New York City, Downtown Jersey City, the state’s suburban communities and beyond. We’re excited to add Le Léo to the mix and introduce a contemporary, boutique offering to the neighborhood.”
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Le Léo features well-designed apartments with nine-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring, and lavish kitchens with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, full-height backsplashes, soft-close cabinetry, and under-cabinet lighting. Sumptuous baths are outfitted with porcelain tile floors and full-height tiled walls.
Enhancing Le Léo residents’ lifestyle is a wide offering of thoughtful amenities and social spaces. These include a welcoming lobby lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, resident lounge, and co-working space with a conference room. An outdoor rooftop terrace features private dining areas and BBQs, sun loungers, a misting station, and firepits with seating. Conveniences include an outdoor dog run, resident storage, bike storage, and enclosed garage parking.
Residents and the community at large will also appreciate having local favorite Choc-O-Pain French Bakery + Café located in the building’s street-level retail space and integrated into the lobby lounge.
“Le Léo’s stylish living spaces, curated amenities and convenient location should resonate with residents looking for a brand-new residential option in this dynamic neighborhood,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. “We also expect it to appeal to those who prefer a more boutique setting over the much larger high-rises that dot the area.”
Situated just off John F. Kennedy Boulevard, Le Léo is less than a ten-minute walk to the neighborhood’s extensive transportation network anchored by PATH service to lower and midtown Manhattan, Jersey City, Hoboken and Newark. NJ Transit and private buses also serve the neighborhood daily, providing convenient access to major employment and recreation centers on both sides of the Hudson River.
The rebirth of Journal Square is clear by the seemingly endless array of lifestyle activities available in the neighborhood. The widely known Mana Contemporary arts center offers visual and performing arts programming and exhibitions, and entertainment and culture are soon to be found at the restored Loew’s Theatre and much anticipated Parisian museum, Centre De Pompidou. There’s also an eclectic offering of restaurants, bakeries and cafes, and plenty of shops, boutiques and community activities such as the JSQ Farmers Market and annual Bergen Square Day.
