Bijou Properties and The Marketing Directors are executing one of the most successful leasing programs in the Hudson County market at Park + Garden, a new collection of upscale apartment homes and first-class recreational amenities and services in the Hudson County City of Hoboken.

More than 50% of the 212 luxury residences in the 12-story building have been leased just three months after the property officially opened to the public.  Move-ins are well underway as Park + Garden quickly becomes the signature address along New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast.”

Designed for LEED® Gold certification, Park + Garden is the third LEED-certified building from locally-based Bijou Properties in uptown Hoboken and boasts innovative, environmentally-sensitive features to minimize its impact on the environment.

“Bijou Properties has a strong reputation for creating trailblazing properties designed to elevate urban settings with high quality homes, community-oriented services and amenities and responsible development practices,” says Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive leasing and marketing agent.  “Park + Garden has set a new standard by delivering a unique lifestyle experience that combines modern design and amenities with eco-friendly features, dedicated common spaces and sponsored neighborhood events.”

Located at 1450 Garden Street on the north end of Hoboken, Park + Garden features a collection of well-appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.  Thoughtfully-designed residences feature high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, bamboo flooring and kitchens with granite countertops, sleek cabinetry and Energy-star stainless steel appliances.   Select homes boast spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.  Monthly rents at Park + Garden start at $3,250.  Fully-furnished model homes are available to tour.

Lennar fashioned a full suite of private amenities and services to enhance that lifestyle experience, including a grand salon lobby, library lounge, media screening room, children’s playroom, and state-of-the-art fitness center with men’s and women’s locker rooms with sauna and steam showers. On the 7th floor, the Skyline Social Room features a lounge-like space to relax and entertain, where a catering kitchen and bar, multiple gathering areas with fireplaces, sound system and televisions, and an internet lounge are available, all against the backdrop of the New York City skyline.

Outside, a dramatic third-floor landscaped plaza features an expansive open-air amenity space that includes a sun shelf swimming pool, sun deck with outdoor showers, pool house with catering bar and restrooms, open lawn and garden spaces, and fire pit with motorized shade trellis.

Residents of 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial also enjoy concierge services, cold storage facilities, an integrated building security system with controlled access, a bicycle storage room, and an enclosed parking garage with at least one parking space per residence.

Hudson River and New York City views stand out at 1000 Avenue, a collection of 74 luxury condominiums.

Luxury living on the Hudson River waterfront doesn’t only come in the form of flashy high-rise buildings with homogenous designs. A growing number of discerning buyers are es-chewing the larger buildings in favor of boutique residential properties that offer a more inti-mate and private lifestyle.

1000 Avenue at Port Imperial, a collection of 74 condominium residences in a seven-story, glass-encased building on the Weehawken waterfront facing midtown Manhattan, continues to be the gold standard for these boutique residential communities on the New Jersey Gold Coast. Developed by Lennar, one of the na-tion’s leading home builders, the property delivers everything luxury buyers have come to expect from a modern, urban property. Yet it is the unique, chic vibe that makes the com-munity stand out, with hotel-inspired amenities, spacious new residences and dramatic views of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline.

The building is set in the heart of Port Imperial, a two-mile stretch of waterfront featuring shops, restaurants, parks and a riverfront promenade that runs parallel from 33rd to 85th Street in Manhattan. Just steps away is the Port Imperial Ferry terminal — with service to midtown and downtown Manhattan. The Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, and George Washington Bridge are just minutes away. The New Jersey Turnpike and Route 3 are easily accessible, as is NJ Transit bus service and the Hudson Bergen Light Rail.

Residents don’t have to leave home, however, to enjoy a lifestyle rich in luxury and service. The building’s all-glass façade provides impressive skyline views stretching from The Freedom Tower to the George Washington Bridge. Designer finishes and appointments throughout the residences include Brazilian Chestnut hardwood floors in main living areas, and gourmet kitchens with a GE Monogram Appliance Suite including Pro Style Range, Avantium oven with SpeedCook Technology, direct-vented Avantium hood to outside air exhaust, and an Energy Star-rated refrigerator and dishwasher. Kitchens also feature under-counter wine coolers in select residences, Spazzi European cabinetry in a raked wood finish with integral handles, DalTile marble kitchen floors and marble backsplash, and granite counter tops.

Lennar has also fashioned a private suite of amenities to foster an upscale, hotel-like life-style within the intimate setting. A two-story lobby lounge with reception and 24-hour concierge welcomes residents and guests. There’s also a social room looking out onto New York City and a state-of-the-art fitness center with sauna and steam showers. For coveted outdoor space, a third-floor plaza overlooking the Manhattan skyline features an open lawn, seating areas, fire pit, sundeck, cooling sprays and a convenience kitchen. Fully-furnished guest suites are available for visiting friends and family.

UNION CITY, NJ – All signs point to a very successful spring and summer selling season at The Lenox, the collection of upscale condominium homes in Hudson County’s Union City.

Strong buyer activity at the 16-story high-rise building over the early spring has yielded ten condominium sales within the past two weeks alone, according to Sun Equity Partners, which released newly-renovated homes and a suite of five-star amenities at The Lenox last year.  The tremendous interest expressed in the studio, one- and two-bedroom homes at the building has propelled sales well past the impressive mark of 50% sold.

Located at 500 Central Avenue just minutes from Manhattan, The Lenox has drawn a large number of first-time buyers looking for a vibrant and complete urban lifestyle at home prices much more affordable than neighboring Cities on New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast.”  Homes at the building are priced from just $179,000.

“Word has spread quickly about the excellent housing opportunity at The Lenox,” says Kelly Marzullo, Director of Marketing for The Lenox.  “Single professionals, young couples and growing families priced out of nearby Hoboken and Jersey City are turning to this exceptional building which offers a lifestyle similar in terms of amenities and services, downtown atmosphere and location a short commute from the business and entertainment centers of New York City.  It’s translated to strong sales volume since the initial release last summer.”

Homes at The Lenox have been fully renovated and include a long list of designer interior appointments, including hardwood floors, kitchens with stainless steel GE appliances, custom white gloss kitchen cabinetry and quartz countertops with marble backsplashes; and spa-like bathrooms with imported tile walls and floors and Moen shower fixtures.  Residences range in size from 535 to 1,089 square feet of living space.

“Select homes also offer balconies with incredible views,” adds Ms. Marzullo.  “Residences facing east enjoy the spectacular expanse of the Hudson River and Manhattan Skyline, while other exposures include sunsets over the preserved wetlands to the west and nearby Washington Park.”

The Lenox LobbyBolstering the enviable lifestyle at The Lenox are a number of Manhattan-style amenities, including an onsite 24-hour concierge to handle specific needs and requests, magnificent lobby, state-of-the-art fitness center, residents’ lounge and a clubroom with pool table and flat screen TV.

In addition to its attractive pricing, stylish homes and exciting amenities, The Lenox also offers residents an ultra-convenient location close to mass transportation and major thoroughfares, providing easy access to New York City, New Jersey’s Hudson River ‘Gold Coast’ and Bergen, Essex and Passaic Counties.

“The building is also one block away from NJ Transit Bus Stop with direct service into New York’s Penn Station, and the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is a 15-minute walk away at Hoboken’s 8th and Jackson Streets platform,” Ms. Marzullo points out.

An abundance of shopping, restaurants and nightlife can be found near The Lenox in downtown Union City, Edgewater, Hoboken and Jersey City.

Fully furnished model homes are now open at The Lenox.  Merchandised by prominent interior designer Debbie Weisman of T.D. Designs, the residences illustrate the comfort, value and appeal of the building.

The Lenox is approved for favorable financing programs offered by the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) that require only a 3.5% down payment.

For additional information on The Lenox, please call (201) 866-8768 or visit www.thelenoxcondosnj.com.  The building’s Sales Center is open by appointment only.  Open Houses are conducted on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
