URBAN-SUBURBAN LIVING MINUTES FROM NJ GOLD COAST MAKES CLIFFSIDE PARK A DRAW FOR TODAY’S HOMEBUYERS

One Park Model Living Room - Designs by Human (1).jpgOne Park, the upscale condominium in Cliffside Park, has quickly made its mark on the New Jersey Gold Coast housing scene.  The 14-story building is the first large scale luxury building to open in this Bergen County borough in a generation and its sales success is validation of Cliffside Park’s ascension into a preferred residential destination for buyers from both sides of the Hudson River.

It’s also indicative of a larger trend that’s building steam in today’s real estate market.  While the growing popularity of City living in places such as Ft. Lee and Jersey City in New Jersey, and Long Island City in New York City is certainly well documented, there’s also a significant segment of buying public heading in the opposite direction and choosing to reside in inner ring municipalities that provide both a slice of an urban lifestyle and the high quality of life of the suburbs.

On New Jersey’s Gold Coast this shift can be seen by the many bypassing the expensive “City-centric” lifestyle in Hudson County and moving to hidden Bergen County residential treasures that still provide access to vibrant downtown centers, shopping and lifestyle services and a commuter-friendly location a short trip from Manhattan’s work centers, but offer a more relaxed, quiet hometown environment.

One Park Pool.jpgSuch is the case in Cliffside Park which is located high atop The New Jersey Palisades Cliffs overlooking the vibrant Hudson Riverfront district below and a short trip to Manhattan.  Conveniently situated between the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel, and just minutes from NY Waterway ferry service into New York City in Edgewater and Weehawken, Cliffside Park has seen a surge in many families and young couples moving to the area.

This influx of new residents in the Borough has been further amplified by a large number of professionals relocating and establishing roots for employment at major companies such as LG, which is building a brand new 27-acre headquarter in nearby Englewood Cliffs, as well as the upcoming American Dream, an entertainment, recreation and shopping mega-center expected to open this spring in East Rutherford.   This has unquestionably cemented Cliffside Park as the leader of the next generation of desired residential addresses near New Jersey’s Hudson River waterfront.

The advancement of Cliffside Park into a fashionable “Gold Coast” neighborhood can initially be seen along Anderson Avenue – affectionately referred to as “The Avenue” – as it stretches along the borough’s eastern border.  With updated and modern storefronts, Anderson Avenue is adding a new wave retailers and eateries to existing establishments to serve a growing clientele which includes everything from Italian to Turkish.  The result is an appealing suburban/urban environment and “City-centric” ambiance.  An eclectic offering of dining, shopping and waterfront recreational and nightlife pursuits are also just minutes away along famed River Road and in Edgewater, Weehawken, North Bergen and Hoboken.

With its popularity growing, Cliffside Park is currently experiencing a bit of a development surge, with new residential projects that provide an upscale living environment that rivals counterparts in Hoboken, Jersey City Manhattan and Long Island City.   The rush is being led by One Park which has been developed by DMG Investments on the edge of the Palisades Cliffs with uninterrupted views of the Manhattan skyline.   The first buyers started moving into the building in October, 2018.  One Park features 204 luxury condominium homes.

Designed by Architectura, with interior spaces curated by VLDG, One Park features a glass window wall facade that incorporates elements of the building’s unique location and amplifies a sense of privacy and security.  The stunning building features a mix of one- to four-bedroom homes ranging from 752 to 2,983 square-feet.   The condominiums are fully customizable with interior features and selections that create a luxury living environment perfectly tailored to each buyer’s personal lifestyle.  Each residence has private outdoor space. The homes are priced from the $500,000s and available for immediate occupancy.

“One Park has delivered a new, modern living experience to Cliffside Park that quickly resonated with buyers,” said Jacky He, CEO of DMG Investments. “This is one of the most unique sites along the New Jersey Gold Coast and purchasers have been drawn to the opportunity to own a luxury home in a building with a wealth of resort-like amenities and an unrivaled cliff side location with easy access into Manhattan, all at a price point that’s incredibly attractive when compared to similar new developments in Hudson County and New York City.”

Residences at One Park are equipped with opulent and comfortable finishes.  Bedroom suites are calm sanctuaries for rest and relaxation, with floor-to-ceiling windows flooding the space with light. Spa-inspired master bathrooms are adorned with a freestanding sculpted tub, large open shower, porcelain flooring and richly-toned wall tiles.  Many homes boast majestic views of New York City and the Hudson River.

The dramatic elegance and sophistication of One Park are further enhanced by its more than 25,000 square feet of  hotel-like indoor and outdoor amenities.  These will include a 24-hour attended front desk, an Aquatic Center featuring an indoor 55-foot heated pool with sauna and steam rooms and adjoining outdoor sun deck; private furnished roof deck including dining terrace with grilling stations, fire pits, intimate seating areas and outdoor movie theater.  There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center with private Pilates room, squash court, golf simulator, children’s playroom, pet spa, guest suites and a secure parking garage with a fully-automated Unitronics system. Also expected is a resident’s-only shuttle bus directly into midtown Manhattan.

Three model homes are open at One Park, providing visitors the opportunity to see first-hand its elegant and sophisticated housing styles.  For additional information on One Park, and to tour the building and models, please call 201-633-7600 or visit www.OneParkCondosNJ.com.  One Park is located at 320 Adolphus Avenue.

URBAN SOULS ANNOUNCES APRIL 15 HOBOKEN STUDIO GRAND OPENING

Urban Souls.jpgInnovative 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.
