Which town saw the biggest population boom last year in Hudson?

2016-06-08_13-31-20via NJ.com – Jersey City is in the midst of a real-estate development boom that its mayor hopes will allow it to overtake Newark as New Jersey’s most populous city, but another Hudson County town has edged out Jersey City as the fastest growing town in the county.

After Secaucus, Harrison saw the second fastest growth in 2015, with its population rising by 3.14 percent from 2014, and West New York came in third, growing by 2.12 percent, the fastest growing town with a population over 50,000 in all of New Jersey.

No other Hudson town cracked 1 percent population growth. East Newark, Guttenberg, Kearny and Union City saw population decreases of less than 1 percent.

The fully attended chic lobby/lounge of Harrison Station 330 features contemporary interior design with a cactus garden. The new building is part of the multiphase development by the Ironstate Development Co. and The Pegasus Group in Harrison, that already includes 275 rental residences, street-level retail space and a Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc. property.

via NJ.COM – Harrison, New Jersey’s transformation into a dynamic transit-oriented neighborhood, has taken another step forward with the launch of Harrison Station 330, a new collection of 329 modern rental apartments located next to the town’s PATH station.

Harrison Station 330 blends studio, one- and two-bedroom residences with a full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities and street-level retail space. Immediate occupancy is available.

The architecturally distinctive building is the third phase of a multiphase development Ironstate Development Co. and The Pegasus Group are executing adjacent to the Harrison PATH station that is spearheading the revitalization of the once-industrial town.

The project’s first two phases, which are completed and occupied, include 275 apartments, more than 20,000 square feet of street-level retail space and the 138-key Element Harrison hotel, part of the American hotel and leisure company Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc.

Once completed, the overall development will feature 2,250 residences and 80,000 square feet of retail space, in addition to the hotel.

“We’re thrilled to introduce the latest offering of residences, which will continue to shape this new neighborhood while providing an exciting alternative to more expensive options in Jersey City and Hoboken,” Barry said.

Harrison Station 330 builds on the success of the earlier development phases while carving out its distinct identity.

The building’s aesthetic provides a nod to the area’s industrial past yet showcases contemporary architecture and interior design.

Monthly rents start from $1,725.  Three fully furnished model homes are open for viewing.

“Each home at Harrison Station 330 was designed to maximize resident comfort,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the community’s leasing and marketing agent. “High ceilings, oversized windows, designer finishes, washers/dryers and chef-inspired kitchens with top-of-the-line General Electric appliance packages are just a few of the details that make the living experience so exceptional.”

Also enhancing the living experience are imaginatively designed amenities, including a fully attended chic lobby/lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center, residents’ lounge with business bar, an additional lounge with Ping-Pong and a landscaped courtyard with a swimming pool, barbecues, a fire pit and an expansive lawn area.

A parking garage and surface parking lot also are available.

Residents will appreciate Harrison Station 330’s proximity to the Harrison PATH station, which provides convenient service to Newark, Jersey City, Hoboken and Manhattan. The New Jersey Turnpike and I-280 are easily accessible for motorists. Numerous shops, restaurants and attractions are a short walk away, including Cork Wine & Liquors, Pronto Marketplace & Deli, Dunkin’ Donuts, Five Guys, a dry cleaner and the Element hotel,  all located within the development.

Harrison Inspires Newark Ironbound Sale

According to a recent report by Dan Ivers at NJ.com, the recent development boom in Harrison has spurred the owners of the Ironbound Iberia Restaurant to market their property for development.

Bidding has opened on a large piece of property in the Ironbound District that stakeholders say could forever change the course of Newark’s most iconic neighborhood.

The owners of the famed Iberia restaurant placed the 5.2-acre site on the open market earlier this month, and are courting developers who may see it as a prime parcel for a high-rise office or residential tower.

Frank Giantomasi, a real estate attorney with Chiesa, Shahinian & Giantomasi who is representing the owners in the potential sale, said the site – with frontage on major thoroughfares Market Street and Ferry Street – could be key in the city’s plans to attract new professionals seeking both easy access to Newark Penn Station and amenities including restaurants, shopping and nightlife.

“This could be the first development that truly creates a walking class of commuters,” he said.

{SNIP}

The Iberia property is currently home to both the restaurant and two storage facilities, but is mostly occupied by blacktop parking spaces, which city officials have often lamented as a deterrent to major development as they look to create a transit-oriented district similar to what has sprung up around the PATH station in Harrison.

“We’re slowly losing against towns like Harrison, Jersey City, Hoboken to develop the area around Penn Station, so we can create the conditions to attract new people,” East Ward Councilman Augusto Amador told the Star-Ledger last year.

BNE Real Estate Group Announces the Lease-Up of Water’s Edge at Harrison Luxury Rental Community

The Clubhouse of Water’s Edge at Harrison

The Clubhouse of Water’s Edge at Harrison

HARRISON, N.J. – BNE Real Estate Group, a national real estate development organization with more than 60 years of experience, announced today that it has leased 100 percent of the residences at Water’s Edge at Harrison, its popular rental community in Hudson County, NJ.

The lease-up of the 141 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments at Water’s Edge comes just six months after its grand opening. The community was successful in attracting renters from day one, thanks to a combination of well-appointed rental residences, a full complement of amenities and services, and an excellent location in an emerging commuter-friendly neighborhood near the Harrison PATH station.

The success of Water’s Edge reflects BNE’s commitment to the development, investment and management of high-quality diversified real estate assets in its home state of New Jersey, and across the country.

“Going into this project, we were big believers in the Harrison market, but we knew we were going to have to create an exceptional product to compete with more established commuter neighborhoods like Hoboken and downtown Jersey City,” said Jonathan Schwartz, Executive Vice President of BNE Real Estate Group. “We set out to create a total lifestyle experience at Water’s Edge, with amenities, services and luxuriously-appointed residences, all offered at competitive prices that represented clear value. From a consumer standpoint, it was a very appealing combination. The reaction from renters was swift and sustained, allowing us to lease-up the community well ahead of our projected pace.”

The location of Water’s Edge was a significant contributor to its success. Harrison is a former industrial town that is undergoing a tremendous renaissance underscored by the numerous residential buildings under construction and a $256 million upgrade to the PATH station the Port Authority began last year. BNE Real Estate Group took maximum advantage of Harrison’s natural assets by building on the banks of the Passaic River. The community’s amenity spaces and many of its apartments feature views of the river and the Newark skyline, all just a short walk or shuttle ride away from the PATH.

Renters were also attracted to the value Water’s Edge offered, as they were able to afford spacious residences with upscale, condo-style finishes at monthly rents that would have been out of their price range in other markets.

“Getting prospective renters to visit the community was our primary marketing objective,” said Kristina Hedden, Vice President of Marketing for BNE Real Estate Group. “We knew we had a product that was capable of selling itself once renters saw just how much we were offering for their rental dollar.”

The lease-up of Water’s Edge comes at a time of tremendous growth for BNE. The developer is currently leasing luxury rental communities in Livingston and East Rutherford, following the successful lease up of properties in Jersey City and Fort Lee in 2014. Additional communities are scheduled to open this year, including a rental community in Neptune, NJ and a hotel in Hollywood Beach, Florida.

Honeymoon in Harrison: Newlyweds Choose Water’s Edge Luxury Rental Community for Their First Home

??????????????????????New Construction Apartments in Emerging Neighborhood near NJ PATH Now Over 85 % Leased

HARRISON, N.J. – While Noorin Hamid and Zain Naqvi were making arrangements for their wedding earlier this year, they were also busy choosing their first apartment together. The Monmouth County couple wanted to move somewhere where they could have an easier commute to Manhattan and also enjoy the comforts of a modern, spacious residence.

After an online search led them to Water’s Edge, a brand new community located in an emerging commuter neighborhood in Harrison, NJ, the couple was quick to decide it was the perfect place to call home. The location near the Harrison PATH station makes commuting to their respective offices in midtown Manhattan convenient, and the new-construction ambience makes them feel relaxed when they return home from work. They got married in January and recently moved into their new apartment in February.

“We both work in the city, so Water’s Edge made sense for us,” Ms. Hamid said. “The shorter commute gives us more time together and we both love the layout of the apartment. It’s a good size for two people and it feels very comfortable, so overall, it is a good living situation for us.”

Mr. Naqvi and Ms. Hamid live in a one-bedroom apartment with an especially airy, spacious living room that boasts hardwood floors and an idyllic bay window, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a carpeted bedroom with an oversized walk-in closet. Ms. Hamid believes Water’s Edge offers more than enough space for both living and storage, especially for an urban, mass-transit area.

“We haven’t had to fight over closet space. That is always a plus,” Ms. Hamid joked. “I have a lot of clothes, but with the walk-in-closet, we are doing well as far as space goes.”

Mr. Naqvi and Ms. Hamid particularly enjoy all of the amenities and services Water’s Edge offers. Ms. Hamid said she likes having a state-of-the-art fitness center right in the community, because it doesn’t require any more travel to get to, which means she exercises more often. Mr. Naqvi is looking forward to the outdoor pool opening this summer. They also enjoy relaxing in the resident’s lounge occasionally.

The couple is just beginning to explore everything the Harrison area offers them, but they are happy to live in a growing community with plentiful retail options. Every morning, they either walk to the PATH or take the complimentary shuttle the building offers, passing numerous shops and restaurants along the way. Harrison offers a blend of long-time staple businesses with a loyal following, like the Spanish Pavillion restaurant, and new businesses that are flocking to the neighborhood near the PATH to provide services for the growing population base.

Mr. Naqvi and Ms. Hamid have noticed that there are a lot more residents around than when they first moved in. Water’s Edge has leased more than 85 percent of the available residences in the community, as renters continue to respond to the outstanding value, spacious floorplans and sophisticated array of amenities the building offers.

Located at 301 Dey Street, Water’s Edge is a pet-friendly community managed by BNE Management Group. It is part of a Harrison rental market that is currently on fire, offering many of the same conveniences and mass-transit options that sparked the revitalizations of Hoboken and downtown Jersey City. But the rental apartments at Water’s Edge offer value superior to those other transit-friendly neighborhoods, with monthly rents for the collection of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments starting from as low as the $1,600s.

The interior spaces at Water’s Edge are attractive and modern. All residences include upscale appointments such as hardwood floors in living areas, plush carpeted bedrooms, soaring 9-foot ceilings and high-efficiency washer/dryers. Chef-inspired kitchens boast stone countertops, custom cabinetry, and an enviable collection of stainless steel appliances, which include a dishwasher and gas range. The homes range in size from 545 to 1,232 square feet. Private outdoor space is available and residents receive complimentary window treatments.

Water’s Edge includes all of the amenities that today’s sophisticated renter has come to expect. A 24-hour concierge is available to assist residents, as well as 24-hour on-site management and maintenance, and a complimentary shuttle that whisks residents to and from the PATH station within minutes. A state-of-the-art fitness center, WiFi business lounge, residents’ lounge, game room and landscaped terrace with heated outdoor pool, lounge seating and a fire pit are all included for residents’ enjoyment. The game room features a billiards table, shuffleboard and other activities, while the lounge includes a fireplace and a bar. Free WiFi access is available in all common areas. On-site covered parking is also available.

Immediate occupancy is available at Water’s Edge. For more information, please visit http://www.RentAtWatersEdge.com or call 855-865-1560. The leasing office is open seven days a week.
