Young Families Choose Luxury Condo Living at #Trio Palisades Park, N.J.

012216-d-trio-penthouseNearly half of the homeowners at Trio in Bergen County’s Palisades Park are young families, joining the growing trend of couples with children opting to stave off the traditional migration to suburban single-family homes and choosing instead to reside in full-service high-rise condominiums.

46% of the residents at the two nine-story buildings located near the George Washington Bridge are young families, according to The Marketing Directors, exclusive marketing and sales agent for Trio.  The high percentage is a testament to the building’s great commutability to work centers in Manhattan, child-friendly atmosphere and spacious homes – all attributes today’s parents seek.

“Young parents want to be able to enjoy time with their children and a condominium building allows them the freedom and flexibility to savor all the moments,” says Brandon Ochs, Sales Representative for The Marketing Directors.   “Our location near New York City eliminates unnecessary weekly hours commuting to work and our maintenance-free environment rids the worry and time it takes to upkeep a single-family home.

“The building itself is perfect for families with large floorplans that provide plenty of room to grow, an on-site concierge that handles daily tasks and service requests and recreational and social amenities geared to both children and adults.” Continue reading

PALISADES PARK, N.J. –  With a quick rack of the billiards table and chalk of the stick, the most recent “Happy Hour” party for Bergen County real estate brokers was underway at Trio in Palisades Park.

The fun-filled event got off to a spirited start with many local agents who’ve already completed sales at the upscale condominium building getting the opportunity to personally enjoy its world-class amenities with a friendly game of pool.  For others, it was their first visit to the full-service high-rise building, providing them an up close look at the active lifestyle and well-appointed homes that have made Trio a preferred choice of the local real estate community.

The festive Happy Hour was held in the building’s resident lounge, which features the billiard table, ping pong, a large screen TV, and catering kitchen.  The modern lounge joins a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, game room, virtual golf simulator, outdoor terrace and a business center to offer residents at the building an upscale, well-rounded living environment.  Continue reading

Ready for their close-up!

There’s certainly no shortage of new residential developments on tap right here in NJ’s “Gold Coast North”.  However, many other cities along New Jersey’s Hudson River also have exciting projects underway.  Here’s a look at two new rental buildings in Hoboken that have recently made the news:

Vine ExteriorIntercontinental Real Estate Corporation and Bijou Properties have announced the launch of Vine, a new 11-story building featuring 135 rental residences located at 900 Monroe Street in Hoboken, NJ.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer joined fellow municipal officials, union leaders and development principals for a special ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the building, which is conveniently situated adjacent to the 9th Street Hudson Bergen Light Rail Station.  In addition to the new residences, Vine features 13,500 square feet of street-level retail space, occupied in part by a Daycare Center.  The developers are also creating an adjacent 7,000 square-foot public park.  The overall development will further the City’s vision of a vibrant commuter neighborhood on Hoboken’s western edge.

Ready to move: Everything you need to know about Union City

-3449e42caf9d30a8Shawn Choi never planned to move to Union City. 

He had been living in Jersey City for nine years and commuting to his job in Queens. But with his wife expecting their first child next month, they needed a bigger space than their studio in Newport. They looked in Fort Lee, but were unable to find something that suited their needs, he said.

Then they found a two-bedroom condo in a recently renovated high-rise on Central Avenue. They moved into The Lenox in February.  

“It was much better priced than any other location,” he said. “With our budget, we’re not even able to get a studio in [Newport].”

Gold Coast without a coast

Union City is part of the “Gold Coast”–the roughly 19 mile stretch along the Hudson River that spans several municipalities in Hudson and Bergen counties. Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken and Edgewater tend to dominate the discussion when it comes to growing demand for property in the region, and a quick drive along the waterfront partially explains why. 

Union City–bounded by Jersey City, North Bergen, Weehawken, Hoboken and West New York–doesn’t have waterfront property and doesn’t have direct access to a PATH station or ferry. What the city does have is pedestrian-friendly residential and commercial areas that are not only close to transit options, but offer a diverse mix of restaurants, businesses and entertainment.

The Ultimate Commute

1000 Avenue at Port Imperial Model Interior 1via Laura D.C. Kolnoski/Industry Magazine

A comprehensive development like no other, Port Imperial along the Hudson River continues rising as new residents clamor to be part of a whole new thing. A community in itself, the $2 billion devel­opment stretches over two miles along the waterfront. It is rapidly transforming the area with soaring residences, shops, restaurants, parks, playgrounds, and a waterfront promenade. Access to a con­venient intermodal transportation sys­tem, anchored by the Port Imperial Ferry terminal — with service to midtown and downtown Manhattan —is a major draw. A pantheon of notable developers had a hand in this futuristic complex, projected for completion within five years.

At the heart of it all, the Lennar Corporation is responsible for The Avenue Collection — five ultra-luxury condominium buildings comprising 669 total units. The residences are located on a prime waterfront site in Weehawken facing midtown Manhattan, where ten­ants enjoy skyline views from every room. Opened in July 2014, the first building, the seven-story, 74-unit bou­tique 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial, is nearing 75 percent occupancy. Four new designer model residences were unveiled recently, showcasing the high-rise’s upscale living spaces. A fifth model is expected soon.

Units offer a variety of floor plans, including a three-bedroom, three-bath residence with a spacious out­door balcony and sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline, to two-bedroom homes offering northwest vistas, then a one-bedroom duplex with a den and private street entrance. The three-bed­room model was designed by renowned Connecticut interior design firm Linda Ruderman Interiors, while the one- and two-bedroom models were merchandized by Tui Pranich of Tui Lifestyle. Based in Manhattan and Miami, the designer is known for creating turnkey, thoughtfully-styled, fully-decorated room settings replete with luxury furniture solutions, decorative accessories, and lifestyle amenities.

Palisades Park Condominium Records Several New Home Sales In Past Month

PALISADES PARK, NJ  – Trio in Palisades Park is poised to end 2014 on an upbeat note, according to MWHF Palisades Park, sponsor of the Bergen County high-rise.

Despite the hectic Holiday season, the two nine-story buildings located at 800 12th Street are riding a wave of success that has seen several new home sales recorded in the past month alone.  The inspiring sales pace can be attributed to historically low interest rates, affordable pricing and limited-time incentives that are spurring homebuyers to act and receive a luxurious home at great savings before it’s too late.

“Our homebuyers are savvy and realize now is the time to buy at Trio to receive the most home for their money,” says Honey Hwang, Sales Manager for The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and sales agent for Trio.

“The general consensus is mortgage rates will surely start rising in 2015.   Our incentive program, which provides up to $30,000 in savings, will expire and our pricing structure will increase as our sales program grows stronger.  When all these factors are considered, our prospects understand now is the time to purchase and get the best possible deal.”
