FORT LEE, N.J. – Mayor Mark Sokolich and fellow officials from the Borough of Fort Lee joined developer BNE Real Estate Group Tuesday, Sept. 17, to celebrate the Grand Opening of Fort Lee’s newest luxury rental building: Twenty50 (www.RentTwenty50.com).
The mayor cut the ribbon on the new property, officially opening it to renters interested in leasing the plush one- and two-bedroom apartments that overlook the George Washington Bridge, Hudson River and New York City skyline.
“I can tell you that I’ve walked into a lot of buildings and this is as nice and as spectacular a structure as I have ever walked into; it is just so tastefully done,” Mayor Sokolich said. “We are now in the middle of probably the busiest and most progressive point in the history of the Borough of Fort Lee. To the developers, thank you for being a part of our progress into the future. Fort Lee is soon going to regain its status as the most enviable community in Bergen County.”
Slated to be this fall’s hottest rental opportunity, Twenty50 features ultra-luxurious one- and two-bedroom residences with spacious layouts, condo-style finishes, and dramatic views. And with initial occupancy scheduled for October, Twenty50 residents won’t have to wait long to enjoy the enviable collection of amenities and 24/7 services that promises to make the community the choice for renters looking for Manhattan-style luxury on the New Jersey Gold Coast.
“Fort Lee offers a very unique residential setting that combines suburban Main Street character with proximity to New York City,” notes Jonathan Schwartz, senior vice president of BNE Real Estate Group. “Twenty50 fills an important, ever-growing consumer demand in this area for luxury housing that offers residents the perfect balance of amenity-rich living and urban convenience.”
Located at 2050 Central Road, Twenty50 is situated directly across the street from Fort Lee Historic Park, the New Jersey section of the Palisades Interstate Park. The building is also a short walk from Fort Lee’s quaint colonial town center, and is just minutes from an eclectic offering of dining, shopping and recreational options that line the Hudson River waterfront.
Transportation to and from Twenty50 is extremely convenient for commuters. The George Washington Bridge, New Jersey Turnpike and Palisades Parkway are all easily accessible, and more than 15 different NJ Transit bus lines travel into Manhattan daily, stopping just two blocks from the building’s entrance. NY Waterway ferry service to Manhattan is also available from the Edgewater Landing terminal just down the road.
“We have received an unprecedented level of interest from prospective renters who have been waiting for a luxury rental opportunity like Twenty50 for a long time,” said Kristina Hedden, vice president of marketing for BNE. “The building’s combination of stylish new residences, superior amenities and a desirable Bergen County location appeals to renters on both sides of the Hudson.”
Designed in partnership by the award-winning architecture firm, The Lessard Design Group, and the interior design team at Minno & Wasko, Twenty50 offers a distinctive collection of one- and two-bedroom residences featuring 714 to 1,287 square feet of living space and an impressive combination of condo-style finishes, such as hardwood flooring throughout, soaring nine foot ceilings with oversized windows, in-home washer/dryers, and private outdoor space in almost every home. Chef-inspired kitchens boast stone counters, custom maple cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, dishwashers, gas ranges, tiled backsplash, breakfast bars and pendant lighting. Deluxe stone baths, abundant closet space, and smart home technology systems are among the other luxurious appointments the homes offer. The building is pet-friendly and non-smoking floors are available.
Twenty50 includes all of the modern amenities today’s sophisticated renter has come to expect. These include a dramatic two-story lobby featuring 24/7 concierge services, Business Café/Coffee bar, Library with seating and a fireplace, and a Residents’ Lounge/Billiards room. Outside on the landscaped terrace, a heated outdoor pool, lounge seating, barbecue grills and a fire pit are set against the stunning backdrop of the New York City skyline and the Hudson River. An expansive state-of-the-art fitness center with Star Trac equipment rounds out the amenity offering. Onsite maintenance and covered parking are also available.
Rental prices for the one-bedroom residences start from the $2,200’s, with two-bedrooms starting from the $3,100’s. For more information about Twenty50 please visit www.RentTwenty50.com or contact the onsite leasing center at (855) 852-2050.
