HOBOKEN, N.J. – Vine, the upscale rental building located at 900 Monroe Street on Hoboken’s burgeoning western edge, is almost fully leased, according to developers Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation.
Over 90% of the 135 luxury residences at the 11-story building have been reserved in the first nine months since opening The high level of leasing velocity at Vine gives credence to the appeal and market acceptance of this emerging neighborhood setting, which offers luxurious homes, first-class amenities and an ultra-convenient location steps from the 9th Street Hudson Bergen Light Rail Station.
The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent, conceived and executed a comprehensive program that from the onset successfully reached the target market and positioned Vine as the signature new rental building in Hoboken.
“Achieving such a high leasing pace since opening to the public in late January is proof the public is fully embracing this location and its stylish new homes, retail services along with its convenient access to mass transportation,” says Larry Bijou, Managing Partner of Bijou Properties, the locally-based development company with strong ties to the Hoboken marketplace. “Vine has brought an upscale urban lifestyle experience to a neighborhood that’s quickly become one of Hoboken’s coveted residential addresses.”
