JERSEY CITY, NJ – Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop joined officials from Manhattan Building Company on Wednesday, May 25th to officially open Cast Iron Lofts II, a new 27-story, 232-unit luxury residential building in this Hudson County City.

Located at 300 Coles Street, the industrial-inspired building is the 2nd property to open within the Cast Iron Lofts collection which is spearheading the creation of SoHo West (South of Hoboken, West of New York City), a vibrant new neighborhood of oversized residences in highly-amenitized buildings on the border of Jersey City and Hoboken.  Cast Iron Lofts II boasts expansive one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with a full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities and 20,000 square-feet of street-level retail space.

The Grand Opening of Cast Iron Lofts II follows the successful lease up of the 155-unit Cast Iron Lofts I apartment building, giving credence to the appeal and market acceptance of this emerging neighborhood setting.  Current retail providers include 8 Springs Studio, a Pilates and Yoga studio; Brewshot, a coffee shop that has several other locations in Jersey City and NYC; and Viaquenti Academy, a bilingual pre-school.

Construction is well underway on the next two-tower building which will include 377 residences.  When completed, the SoHo West development will comprise 1,360 residences in multiple buildings and street-level retail space.

“Cast Iron Lofts has brought a whole new community to this part of the city, truly creating a neighborhood blended with residences and small businesses,” said Mayor Fulop.  “We look forward to meeting our newest residents and welcoming more as we continue to grow this into a vibrant area.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony, which took place in the building’s fully-decorated lobby, occurred with Cast Iron Lofts II fast approaching 70% leased since the start of its rental program less than four months ago.   Continue reading
