Urban SoulsInnovative Yoga and Meditation Studio to Open with a Full Week of Complimentary Classes

Urban Souls, a new wellness studio designed to help busy urban dwellers unplug and recharge through a variety of innovative yoga, meditation and sound experiences, will open its doors to the public on April 15th, 2019.

Located on the fourth floor of 100 Hudson Street in downtown Hoboken, Urban Souls will offer a full schedule of classes taught by seasoned instructors, some with strong local followings.  Featuring a welcoming and airy setting with eco-friendly cork floors and expansive arch windows that bathe the space in natural light, the studio will serve as a peaceful escape from the bustling city and everyday stresses that can take a toll on minds and bodies.

Urban Souls is the brainchild of longtime Hoboken resident and Life Coach Karen Flannery and experienced Yoga and meditation teacher Brendan Gibbons.  The partners recognized a need for a tranquil space for both practiced yogis and beginners alike. Their inspiration for the studio stems from a desire to create a supportive, inclusive environment that promotes healthy connectivity on a deeper, more meaningful level.  Flannery notes that even though we are constantly connected through our smartphones, computers and social media, many of us feel disconnected with ourselves and those around us. Urban Souls aims to bridge that gap.

Urban Souls 1“At Urban Souls, seekers of all kinds can get reacquainted with how wonderful healthy connection feels,” she says.  “It’s a place for exploration, where a truly unique variety of classes and workshops are mindfully crafted to cultivate wellness—deep connection to mind, body, and spirit—simply by design.”

Visitors can begin to leave their stresses at the door as soon as they enter Urban Souls’ Open Space, a casual community room where they can enjoy a cup of tea, practice meditation, watch a Ted Talk, or simply take a moment to map out the rest of their day.

Urban Souls’ full slate of yoga and meditation classes will take place from morning to evening to accommodate busy schedules and life commitments.

“Each session incorporates varying practices to cater to shifting needs throughout the day,” explains Gibbons.  “Class offerings range from 30-minute “mind-resets” that are perfect for lunch breaks or after work, to full-length yoga flows to live music-infused experiences.”

In celebration of its Grand Opening, Urban Souls is offering its first week of classes from April 15 to April 21 at no cost.  Discounted rates on future classes will also be available until the end of the first week.

Iconic 79-Story Luxury Condominium Building Records 34 First Quarter Sales, Setting the Pace for the New York Metropolitan Market

99 HudsonJersey City, NJ — 99 Hudson, the new luxury condominium tower rising 79 stories above the Jersey City waterfront, is off to an incredible start in 2019 with a market-leading 34 sales recorded in just the first quarter of the year.

The strong sales velocity, which comes on the heels of a highly-successful 2018 sales campaign at the building, is buoyed in part by an influx of savvy New York City buyers who have been crossing the Hudson River to 99 Hudson to take advantage of its compelling value when compared with similar offerings in Manhattan, Long Island City, Queens, and Brooklyn, according to developer China Overseas America (COA).

“99 Hudson reflects our commitment to creating an iconic 21st-century residential property in a vibrant, urban setting,” said Xiaocheng Zhou, President of COA. “The extraordinary residences, exclusive amenities and breathtaking views are paired with a downtown Jersey City location that offers every lifestyle element one looks for in a convenient and culturally-rich destination. The robust sales activity we’re experiencing is a testament to the building’s widespread appeal to professionals and entrepreneurs from both sides of the river and beyond.”

Designed by Perkins Eastman, 99 Hudson features a distinctive limestone and glass exterior that embodies sophisticated residential architecture.

A collection of studio-to-three-bedroom homes including a limited number of expansive, topfloor Penthouse residences is available, many with balconies and terraces. Condominiums range up to 2,500 square feet of living space and are currently priced from $557,000 to $4,213,000. Initial occupancy is expected for late 2019.

Homes feature open layouts with floor-to-ceilings windows that bathe residences in natural light and frame dramatic vistas of the Manhattan skyline, World Trade Center, New York Harbor and Statue of Liberty. Stylish finishes include oak flooring, kitchens with quartz stone countertops, stainless steel sinks with Kohler fixtures and a premium suite of Bosch appliances; and spa-like

2 master bathrooms with Italian porcelain baths. All cabinetry throughout these elegant homes has been imported from Italy. Each residence will also have Bosch washer and dryers.

Enhancing residents’ lives will be 65,000 square feet of world-class indoor and outdoor amenities which begin with a dramatic and welcoming double height lobby with Jura limestone, a grand chandelier, stunning onyx feature wall and private, off-street porte-cochere providing secure access by car or foot.

99 Hudson LobbyInside, health and wellness will be fostered by a state-of-the-art 3,800 square-foot Fitness Center and dedicated yoga and Pilates studio. Social interaction and a communal vibe will be created by a game room with card rooms and pool and foosball tables, golf simulator, screening room with bar, children’s playroom, demonstration kitchen, and work café. The 99 Hudson Club Room will feature a library, flat screen TV, and lounging, dining and entertaining spaces. There’s also a 24-hour concierge.

Outside, a resort-style lifestyle awaits on the 8th floor amenity deck which will boast a 3,000 square-foot swimming pool, private cabanas, indoor and outdoor lounge and dining area with BBQ grills, playground, dog run and landscaped green lawn. 99 Hudson will also offer an exclusive, residents-only spa with hot tub, wet and dry lounges, steam room, dry sauna, showers, spa terrace and private massages. An impressive 7,500 square feet has been dedicated to open space and pedestrian plazas.

99 Hudson Pool“Soaring 900 feet into the Jersey City skyline directly across the river from the World Trade Center, 99 Hudson continues to capture the attention of Manhattanites,” said Jaqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the Manhattan-based national development advisory firm that was tapped by China Overseas America as 99 Hudson’s exclusive marketing and sales agent. “When they take the ultra-convenient ten-minute ride to Jersey City via PATH train or ferry, they discover spacious homes with incredible Manhattan skyline views, 65,000 square-feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, and a vibrant waterfront neighborhood booming with art, culture, dining and nightlife — all at a value-laden price point that is driving sales.”

Lying directly across the Hudson River from the World Trade Center, 99 Hudson boasts a prime location at the intersection of Hudson and Greene Streets, just steps from the Exchange Place PATH station which whisks commuters to business and entertainment centers in midtown Manhattan and New York’s Financial District. NY Waterway ferries provide service to the 39th Street and Battery Park City terminals. Also, right outside the front door is the Exchange Place Light Rail station which provides direct access to other “Gold Coast” locales.

Downtown Jersey City has fast made a name for itself in the New York Metropolitan social, arts and cultural scene and is bustling with shopping and entertainment venues. 99 Hudson lies a short walk from the pedestrian-friendly Newark Avenue — a hotbed of dining and nightlight. Residents also have direct access to 1,500 acres of waterfront park and 19 miles of Hudson River biking and jogging pathways.
