As the latest example of Newark’s revitalization, 325 Ferry Street will provide its residents with upscale amenities, plush living spaces, a high-tech/energy-efficient lifestyle experience, and a private daily shuttle to and from both Newark Penn Station and the Harrison PATH Station, in a thriving neighborhood with a Walk Score of 94, more than 170 restaurants and 570 businesses. It will include street-level retail that will be occupied by a 5,000 square-foot sports bar, a Neapolitan Express Pizzeria, and a pet grooming salon.

“325 Ferry Street will offer finely-crafted living spaces in one of the most exciting, unique neighborhoods in New Jersey, and that is something we are really looking forward to,” said T. Gary Gutjahr, who is developing the property along with his partner J. Gordon Gutjahr. “We are proud to offer our future residents an exceptional lifestyle with access to shops, restaurants, nightlife and mass-transit.”

Influenced by the many different ethnic groups who inhabited the neighborhood throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, North Ironbound is a prosperous, close-knit urban neighborhood teeming with culture. It is popular for its Portuguese bakeries, Brazilian steakhouses, upscale seafood restaurants and street festivals. Ferry Street is the neighborhood’s main artery, home to hundreds of unique businesses that contribute to the local flavor.

325 Ferry Street will put residents in the heart of it all, just a short, five-minute private shuttle ride from both Newark Penn Station and the Harrison PATH station, where commuters are whisked to the World Trade Center in about 20 minutes, and to 33rd Street in about 32 minutes via transfer.

Six distinct apartment designs will be available at 325 Ferry Street, ranging in size from 809 to 1,116 square feet of living space.

Three one-bedroom, one-bath home designs will offer open floorplan living and master bedrooms with huge walk-in closets. Most will also include private outdoor balconies. Select floorplans will include a den. Monthly rental rates for the one-bedroom residences will start from $2,150.

Residents who choose to use the service will be able to use multiple devices, stream television or videos, work from home, play games and enjoy an overall superior internet experience through the provider’s pure state-of-the-art data network.

Found through out the homes at 325 Ferry Street will be elevated nine-foot ceilings, expansive windows with opaque shades in living areas and room darkening shades in bedrooms, fully-insulated double walls and solid core doors for sound suppression, designer vinyl plank flooring, and ceramic tile in kitchen and baths. Chef-inspired gourmet kitchens will include quartz countertops, oversized peninsulas that seat four, undercabinet task lighting, GE stainless steel appliances, and a separate dinette area in most units.

A full washer and gas dryer, high-efficiency air conditioning and gas heating furnace, and bedroom walk-in closets with shelf and rods will be included in every residence.

“For more than 20 years, we have built custom, luxury homes in some of the most desirable locations in northern New Jersey, and now we are applying the same custom approach and meticulous attention to detail to the development of 325 Ferry Street,” J. Gordon Gutjahr said. “We look forward to providing our residents with an exceptional lifestyle experience and to launching a mixed-use building that contributes to the overall vitality of the neighborhood.”

In addition to the private VIP shuttle service, residents will enjoy a full complement of amenities designed to enhance their lifestyle. Amenities will include a custom fitness studio with cardio and weightlifting equipment, a relaxing lounge with flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, coffee bar, and fireplace, and a beautiful outdoor patio with seating and picnic area, fire pit and games.

Secure, covered parking and surface parking will be available, as well as electric car charging ports. Packages will be delivered to a generously-sized parcel/package room, with refrigerated parcel lockers. Climate-controlled storage units will be available, digital security cameras will provide surveillance, and an on-site building manager will be available to tend to the needs of residents. A smart and secure phone and residence app will manage the entrance system. 325 Ferry Street will be a pet-friendly community.

325 Ferry Street was designed with a walkable lifestyle and the day-to-day convenience of residents in mind. A full-service grocery store and new CVS will be located just steps from residents’ front door. Other nearby destinations include the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Prudential Center, home to a number of sporting events and concerts held throughout the year.

Residents of 325 Ferry Street will be well-connected to the city, the region, and the world, able to access the PATH system, NJ TRANSIT rail service, the Newark Light Rail, Newark Liberty International Airport, and several major highways all in a matter of minutes. Hoboken, downtown Jersey City and Harrison are just a few of the nearby destinations on this side of the Hudson River residents will be able to reach, often in under 30 minutes.

Arts Integration Professional Development Workshop At NJPAC

arts.jpg

When: Thu, March 14, 2019 – 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM

Where: 24 Rector Street – NJPAC Center for Arts Education, Newark, NJ 07102

This workshop explores the connections and commonalities between visual arts, music and dance through the lens of the famed Bauhaus painter Paul Klee.

A talented violinist himself, Klee’s paintings are filled with allusions to dreams, music, dance, and poetry. We’ll discover the musical and kinesthetic elements in Klee’s works, and then play around with some techniques to transform these elements into sound and movement. Extending sonic possibilities by building instruments from simple materials, we’ll compose and perform music inspired by specific paintings, then transfer those concepts to dance by creating and performing choreographies based on Klee’s works.

Course includes a Professional Development Certificate 
(6 credit hours), printed materials, catered breakfast and lunch.
