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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASpacious, Modern Residences and Superior Amenities Attract Renter

HARRISON, N.J. – While living in a nearby apartment, Harrison resident Liang noticed a modern, attractive rental development rising along the Passaic River waterfront. During his commute to nearby Rutgers University, he watched as construction progressed just a few blocks from his home, the warm brick-and-glass façade piquing his interest.

When Water’s Edge at Harrison recently opened for lease this fall, Liang was among the first in line to tour the community, and upon first impression decided that he wanted to move in. The monthly rental prices are comparable to what he was paying in his older rental, but these apartments are much more spacious and bright. Plus, the entire community exudes a sense of luxury only found in new construction development. The apartment interior finishes are top-of-the-line, boasting hardwood flooring in living areas and condo-style kitchens and baths, while the clubhouse and two-level outdoor terrace boast a clever array of lifestyle amenities he could see himself using.

“The apartment I was living in was nice, but small, and I just wanted to make a change,” Liang said. “I lived nearby and I saw that Water’s Edge was beautiful, so I logged on to their website and they informed me that they were going to launch. When I visited the community I saw that the living conditions at Water’s Edge are excellent, so I made my decision right there.”
