via Joshua Burd/ NJBIZ.com – The major mixed-use redevelopment project in Fort Lee known as Hudson Lights has added an indoor cycling studio, a liquor store and high-end fashion retailer to its tenant roster, its developer announced.
The firm, Tucker Development, said the new tenants include CycleBar, a fitness concept that pairs cycling with music and interactive entertainment, and Linwood Wine & Liquor Co. The third new tenant is SeeSaw, a boutique shop that sells women’s apparel and accessories.
The new deals bring Hudson Lights’ retail component to about 75 percent leased, Tucker said in a news release. All told, the development’s first phase will comprise about 140,000 square feet of retail space, which previously had commitments from iPic, which is building an eight-screen, 533-seat luxury movie theater, and tenants such as CVS and Capital One.
Retailers at the property are slated to open their doors in the second quarter, the news release said.
The 1 million-square-foot project, which sits at the foot of the George Washington Bridge is part of a long-awaited redevelopment plan in Fort Lee that local officials hope will breathe new life into the town. Tucker’s plans also call for 276 luxury apartments.
Tucker also has secured entitlements for a second phase, which calls for another 201 residential units, some 50,000 square feet of retail space and parking and a 175-room hotel, the news release said. The zoning also permits for the development of an office building of up to 430,000 square feet.
