Angela Biancamano was going to need a little convincing to make the move to a multi-family rental community. Seeking more space for her two dogs and wanting more convenience and a better ease of living than her second floor Elmwood Park walk-up apartment provided, Angela set her sights on finding a single-family home she could rent with her roommate.
“I always lived in a single-family home, and I thought one would provide the perfect amount of space and the homey feel we were looking for,” she said. “That was my initial preference.”
Wanting to stay in or near Bergen County, Ms. Biancamano and her roommate searched single-family rentals in the area but couldn’t find a home that fit their needs. At the urging of her roommate, she agreed to expand their search to larger, amenitized rentals, starting with an apartment community on Route 46 in Wayne. The Wayne complex wasn’t what we were looking for in terms of space, and they weren’t happy with the amenities, she recalled.
Undaunted, Ms. Biancamano and her roommate decided to check out the multiple new rentals in Hackensack. While they didn’t find the perfect home there either, the decision proved to be very fruitful.
“While we were driving in Hackensack, we saw The Atwater and it looked gorgeous,” Ms. Biancamano said. “We couldn’t tour it that day, but as soon as we got home, we went online to get a better feel of the community and schedule a time to visit.”
The Atwater is an ultra-luxurious rental community developed by PCD Development on the banks of the Hackensack River in Bogota, NJ. The Atwater boasts a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, each with a private balcony or patio, and a full suite of resort-like amenities.
“We immediately fell in love with The Atwater,” Ms. Biancamano exclaimed. “The home is perfectly sized and boasts top-of-the-line appliances, high ceilings and a water-facing balcony with room for the dogs. We also appreciated the fact that these were brand new homes, and no other renters had lived there before.”
The modern and contemporary amenity package was also great for both Ms. Biancamano, her roommate, and the fur babies.
“The amenities are amazing,” she continued, “and the riverfront walkway is the perfect place to take the dogs. The staff at The Atwater, from the leasing team to management, are exceptional as well.”
In addition to the approximately 2,000-foot-long riverfront walkway meandering along the Hackensack River, The Atwater provides 20,000 square-feet of resort-inspired outdoor amenities which include a magnificent pool, expansive sun deck, cabanas and sunbathing/yoga lawn. There’s also an outdoor work-from-home space, fire pits and dining area with four BBQ grills. What’s more, a resident-only outdoor theater is in the works.
The dynamic outdoor amenities join a long list of indoor amenities to create a lively and social vibe at The Atwater. Highlighting the indoor lifestyle opportunities is The Atwater Club, featuring a clubroom with billiards and a bar, resident lounge with a fireplace, 2,200 square-foot fitness center with a yoga studio, a game/arcade room, business center with individualized working spaces, coffee bar, children’s playroom, and an Amazon package locker system. Upon completion, the community will also include other on-site conveniences such as retail services, indoor bike storage, dog wash station, and a public dog park.
“From the gorgeous pool, fire pits and barbeque stations to the luxury accommodations in The Atwater Club, this community provides a complete package of five-star amenities that’s a rare find in Bergen County’s rental market,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for The Atwater.
More than 80% of the homes at The Atwater are now leased. Stylish apartments are loaded with designer interior features and appointments, including 9’ ceilings, luxury plank flooring, a smart lock system, full-size, in-home washer and dryer, modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances and Quartz countertops, and lavish baths with double vanities in most homes. Monthly rents start in the $2,000s. Limited time incentives are currently being offered, including up to two months free on a 26-month lease. Immediate occupancy is available.
The Atwater’s location in the heart of Bergen County gives it a decisive advantage in the market. Though mostly laid back and residential, Bogota offers many local restaurants, bars, boutique shops and services, including Luka’s Italian Cuisine and Riviera Maya’s authentic Mexican fare. There’s casual nightlife at 101 Pub or Andy’s Corner Bar, while everyday conveniences and services can be found at the many grocers, bakeries and personal care salons located throughout the borough. Some of the best shopping in the country is located within a 10 minutes’ drive of the community, including major national retailers at the Garden State Plaza and Paramus Park Mall. The Shops at Riverside® offers a sophisticated mix of shopping, dining, and entertainment, including Bloomingdales, Louis Vuitton, Tory Burch, Morton’s Steakhouse, Houston’s, and The Oceanaire Seafood Room.
Bogota is also ideally situated near a multitude of transportation options. Its southern edge is bordered by Interstate 80, delivering commuters to the George Washington Bridge in just under 10 minutes, and is easily connected to Routes 17, 4 and the New Jersey Turnpike. New Jersey Transit bus service is available via the 182 and 167 lines into the New York Port Authority Bus Terminal.
