New Phase Exemplifies Healthy Lifestyle and Green Building Practices
At Upscale Bayonne, NJ Waterfront Apartment Community

BAYONNE, N.J. – Trammell Crow Residential has unveiled the second phase of upscale apartments at Alexan CityView on the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor with a 100% smoke-free environment, a unique lifestyle feature that is the first of its kind in New Jersey and nearly unheard of in the New York Metropolitan marketplace.

The distinctive new building housing a variety of one-, two- and three-bedroom residences at the upscale waterfront neighborhood will further exemplify the environmentally-conscience nature of the community which is the largest LEED-Certified multifamily development in the United States.

Offering stunning direct views of the waterfront and Manhattan skyline, the new phase will also feature a number of new apartment designs offered for the first time at Alexan CityView, including residences with oversized curved windows that maximize the waterfront views. Initial occupancy for the new apartments is scheduled for April.

Alexan CityView has already carved a niche in today’s marketplace by attracting renters who want luxurious homes and world-class recreational amenities in a neighborhood developed responsibly and with the sensitivity of the surrounding environment in mind,” notes Richard Murphy, Managing Director of Trammell Crow Residential.

“We believe the decision to introduce this new building which will be the only 100% smoke free rental offering in the State will be embraced by a growing segment of the public that seeks a healthier lifestyle at home.”

The opening of the leasing program on the second building at Alexan CityView follows the success of the community’s initial phase with more than 160 apartments now leased and nearly 150 residents moved in. The impressive leasing numbers demonstrate the strong demand for apartments that offer elegant and graceful interior designs, spectacular Manhattan-inspired amenities and a commuter-friendly location, all at attractive rental rates considerably lower than those found at other rental communities lesser in quality and luxury throughout the “Gold Coast.”

“We’ve created an exciting new alternative in the area with apartments that masterfully blend expansive living spaces with upscale finishes and appointments, a comprehensive suite of amenities and services that approximates to a luxury resort, and a sprawling waterfront site that’s just blocks from the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and a short trip into neighboring Hoboken, Jersey City and Manhattan,” Mr. Murphy points out.

Alexan CityView offers spacious studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments at monthly rents currently starting from $1,595. A selection of townhomes is also available with rents starting at $3,265. Renters can take advantage of special lease programs, including two months free for those who lease now and options of up to 24 month lease terms.

While the apartments embody all of the elements of an elegant lifestyle, the hallmark of Alexan CityView is the community’s dramatic 9,000 square-foot WiFi-enabled clubhouse which features a fully-equipped fitness center with children’s playroom, indoor half basketball court, executive business center, media lounge and club with billiards, tabletop shuffleboard, teaching kitchen and numerous HDTVs. Outside, a magnificent heated pool and sundeck can be found.

Residents can also take advantage of a 24-hour virtual concierge service and controlled-entry enclosed parking garage.
“A neighborhood dog park is now open and plenty of open green space with well-manicured courtyards will be added as development progresses,” adds Karen Kossow, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kettler Management, which is handling leasing and property management services for Alexan CityView. “What’s more, a shuttle is available to whisk residents to and from Alexan CityView to the Hudson Bergen Light-Rail Station which offers easy access into New York City via PATH Trains and ferries in neighboring Jersey City.”

Situated on an expansive 297-acre site along New York Harbor, Alexan CityView offers panoramic views of Manhattan, the Verrazano Bridge and the spectacular Bayonne Golf Club. The community’s location offers easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike and Routes 78 and 440 and is just minutes from the Holland Tunnel, while the nearby Hudson Bergen Light Rail offers convenient service to Jersey City, Hoboken, PATH Trains, ferries and other “Gold Coast” attractions.

The meticulously-designed apartments provide the utmost in modern luxury and appeal. Many apartments offer private courtyard balconies and terraces, expanding the elegant living areas and maximizing the spectacular views offered by the waterfront location. Generous closet space and nine-foot ceilings are provided in the living areas.

Upscale finishes and appointments include kitchens with stainless steel ENERGY STAR® appliances, Granite countertops, Chef’s islands or breakfast bars with pendant lighting and European-inspired flat-panel cabinets with stainless pulls. Bathrooms offer ceramic tile tub surrounds, Vanity-width mirrors and Moen® fixtures. Residences also include an individual washer and dryer and available high-speed Verizon Fios phone, cable and internet.

Conceived as a sustainable structure in accordance with the stringent rating requirements of the LEED For Homes Silver certification, Alexan CityView boasts a number of significant “Green” features. For example, each residence is equipped with green para air filtration systems to remove humidity, dust and other airborne particles on a continuous basis. Other environmentally-friendly highlights include a resident recycling program, increased water management practices to contribute to water conservation, ENERGY STAR rated appliances, windows, lights and efficient heating and cooling systems.
