Nicole Rothman and her boyfriend experienced firsthand the trials and tribulations of apartment living.  The young Hoboken, NJ couple had settled comfortably into a home in an older midtown building when unforeseen circumstances forced them to quickly ramp up a search for a new apartment within this mile-square city.

We lived in an apartment on 6th and Jefferson for about a year and had plans to stay longer,” Nicole says.  “Unfortunately, a water heater leaked in the apartment above ours. Our apartment was deemed unlivable and we had to act fast.”

The couple hastily put together a strategy and set out visiting complexes such as 1000 Jefferson, and researching options including the Juliana and Park + Garden.  They also looked at older apartments in between.  None grabbed their attention.

“We searched for about a week and laid out almost every possible option we could,” she recalls.

One option was a location familiar to Nicole from her early days as a Hoboken resident. 7 Seventy House, an upscale 424-home rental building on this Hudson County City’s emerging west side, was rising on a site Nicole had passed frequently.  The new 14-story building would become the perfect destination to rectify their challenging situation.

“We fell in love with 7 Seventy House as soon as we walked in the doors!” she exclaimed.  “My boyfriend visited first and told me I had to come back to check it out. The next day I went back. We both knew we wanted to move to the building so we scheduled a tour to walk through different layouts together.”

Developed by Bijou Properties and partner Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation, 7 Seventy House offers upscale studio, one-, two -and three-bedroom apartments and approximately 90,000 square feet of private amenities and services just steps from the 9th Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station and the Monroe Arts Center.

“7 Seventy House had it all,” Nicole continues.  “After we visited the building, there was no comparison.  I unquestionably wanted to live here.”

Apartments at 7 Seventy House boast open floor plans with red oak engineered wood floors and expansive windows that bathe the homes in natural light.  Kitchens feature Quartz countertops, white ceramic tile backsplashes, custom cabinetry, and a premium GE stainless-steel appliance package, with in residence Bosch washer and dryers.  Luxury bathrooms are outfitted with grey mineral stone tile and Moen & Kohler fixtures.  A selection of homes includes private outdoor balconies and terraces up to 800 square feet.

Nicole and her boyfriend selected a well-designed one-bedroom home on the building’s northwest side.

“The floor plan is very balanced, which we really liked,” she says.  “The kitchen to living room ratio was wider and much more comfortable than in other buildings, and the layout provides ample space in the bedroom so we don’t feel crammed.”

Hotel-level services, such as the Hello Alfred concierge system, also played a key role in creating the lifestyle Nicole and her boyfriend were in search of.  There are also added conveniences such as a 24-hour attended lobby and private resident shuttle.

“I personally love the shuttle,” Nicole add.  “I use it to commute to the path every morning to get to work in lower Manhattan. I’ve found that if I take the 6:15 or 6:45 AM shuttle I can go door-to-door in 30 minutes.  It also takes me to The Bar Method location in downtown Hoboken.   Beyond that, they have little touches like the coffee machine downstairs and the partnership with Hello Alfred.  Management has also done a terrific job inviting in neighborhood retail vendors to enhance the resident experience.”

Strategically located on multiple floors with a range of views including the Manhattan skyline, the full suite of amenities at 7 Seventy House includes a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, expansive amenity deck with fire pits and BBQ stations, multiple outdoor gardens, bocce ball court, state-of-the-art multi-level gym, play room, game room, indoor bike storage, on-site dog park, dog grooming room, alcove with co-working lounge and coffee station and a conference room with access to an outdoor deck. Covered on-site parking is available.

“I can’t wait for summer so I can exclusively use the rooftop for the pool,” Nicole says.  “The views are to die for.  This has truly been the best case out of a worst scenario.”

Designed by MHS Architects, the landmark 7 Seventy House features a 14-story high rise tower with multiple terraced setbacks, a glass and brick exterior and distinctive columned entryway.  Monthly rents start in the $2,600s, with limited-time incentives that include one-month free on a 13-month lease.  Immediate occupancy is available. The Marketing Directors is the exclusive leasing and marketing agent.

7 Seventy House is a multi-faceted mix-use project that was developed in conjunction with a two-acre park donated by Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation to Hoboken.  The initial installation of the park open this summer and includes a children’s playground, a one-acre green space designed for active and passive recreation uses, a state-of-the-art 6,835 square-foot community gymnasium and infrastructure to capture over 450,000 gallons of rainwater to reduce flooding.  A second phase is expected to open shortly and will include a one-acre public plaza with step seating and tilted lawn panel, play sculpture and a large plaza to accommodate vendors and seasonal markets.   The project is part of the larger redevelopment of Hoboken‘s once-industrial western edge into a vibrant and active pedestrian-friendly neighborhood.

7 Seventy House recently received a 2019 Excellence Award in Sustainable Development from The Urban Land Institute-Northern New Jersey (ULI-NNJ) in recognition of the responsible development tactics and smart growth practices utilized to conceptualize and complete the upscale rental building.

The New York City Metro Area Offers Countless Options for Apartment Seekers. Here’s a look at How Former New York City Renters Found Luxury, Value at Hudson County’s 7 Seventy House

The lure of luxury New York City apartment living isn’t always what it seems.  Strong demand has the Manhattan rental market surging, and with escalating prices come high expectations for homes of distinction, high quality service and an elevated lifestyle.  Unfortunately, expectations fell short for Patrick Troy and his roommate, who were renting a two-bedroom apartment in a pre-war building undergoing renovations in SoHo.

“We were promised the moon from the management company and most of it ended up being false,” Patrick said.  “We were paying full price for an extremely incomplete project.  For example, we were promised a laundry room, two outdoor spaces, and closets when we signed our lease.  One year later, none of this happened or is even on the horizon.”

With his initial one-year lease coming to an end, Patrick and his roommate began to look at new Manhattan rental options, including homes at 123 West 23rd Street in Chelsea and 15 Cliff Street in FiDi.

“The buildings were fine but I wasn’t in love with them,” Patrick recalls.  “For the amount of money I’d be spending, I wanted to feel great about where I was living.  I didn’t feel great about the value of these two properties.”

A month into the search, Patrick got word of a brand new upscale rental building that recently opened just across the Hudson River in Hoboken, N.J from a college friend who had just moved in.  The building – 7 Seventy House – had everything they wanted and

“The value at 7 Seventy House is incredible,” Patrick explains.  “Our apartment is huge and beautiful.  I’ve never even fathomed having a walk-in closet in Manhattan.  The amenities are tremendous.  Hello Alfred, your own personal butler, is included with 7 Seventy House.  The two-story gym and shuttle to the PATH are perfect.  The rooftop is about as good as it gets.  I can’t wait to grill up there.”

Patrick and his roommate would rent an expansive two-bedroom residence at 7 Seventy House with Manhattan views.

“I love how wide open and spacious the floorplan is,” he continues.  “The bedrooms are large.  In fact, the walk-in closet is the same size as the bedroom in my SoHo apartment.  I also love the kitchen island.  The living room has huge windows that face the entire skyline of Manhattan.  The views are great.”

7 Seventy House features one of the most comprehensive package of world-class amenities.  Strategically located on multiple floors with views of the Manhattan skyline, the full suite of amenities includes a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, 7 Seventy House Poolexpansive amenity deck with fire pits and BBQ stations, multiple outdoor gardens, bocce ball court, state-of-the-art multi-level gym, play room, game room, indoor bike storage, on-site dog park, dog grooming room, alcove with co-working lounge and coffee station and a conference room with access to an outdoor deck.  Additionally, the community features a 24-hour attended lobby, Hello Alfred concierge service and covered parking.

“All of the amenities are incredible,” Patrick said.  “7 Seventy House went way above and beyond to ensure they are the best luxury apartment complex in Hoboken.”

7 Seventy House is located at 770 Jackson Street on Hoboken’s fast emerging west side.  The building is just steps from the 9th Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station and the Monroe Center for the Arts.  The area has experienced a lifestyle upswing in recent years with a vibrant new mix of retail, dining, parks and public amenities complementing its access to public transportation.

“The neighborhood is awesome,” says Patrick. “There are great bars and restaurants right around the corner.  There’s also incredible parks to play basketball within five minutes. Previously, I had a three minute walk to work as a commute.  That was the biggest thing to give up, but 7 Seventy House made this as easy as possible.  They have a shuttle that runs to the PATH every 15 minutes.  There are other options available as well.  The light rail stops right across the street from the building, and I love that Hoboken has Lime scooters everywhere.”
