LIVINGSTON, N.J. – Livingston Mayor Michael M. Silverman and fellow officials from Livingston Township joined developer BNE Real Estate Group on Tuesday, April 21st, to cut the ceremonial ribbon on the newest luxury rental community to hit the market in suburban Essex County: The Hillside Club.
The mayor welcomed The Hillside Club’s new residents to Livingston, an upscale township known for its tree-lined streets, well-kept homes and charming suburban ambience.
“As people move into this development, they will have the opportunity to shop in town, eat in town and explore all of the wonderful things Livingston has to offer,” Mayor Silverman said. “Whether these people are moving from within Livingston or relocating from another town, they will be welcomed with open arms. They will have an incredible place to live right here in this beautiful new community.”
The new rental community brings a touch of urban sophistication to the neighborhood, with plush, condo-style finishes and amenities typically found in new-construction buildings in Manhattan and along the New Jersey Gold Coast. BNE, a long-time believer in the Livingston housing market, noticed a growing desire for upscale rental housing in the area and they moved quickly to meet that demand.
“Much of New Jersey’s luxury rental housing development in the last decade has focused on the state’s more urban communities, while many towns like Livingston have been underserved,” said Jonathan Schwartz, Executive Vice President of BNE Real Estate Group. “We tailored The Hillside Club to cater to the growing demand in this area for amenity-rich, maintenance-free living. We know there are a lot of people who are drawn to the rental lifestyle and who also have their hearts set on Livingston. We urge them to visit the community today, because The Hillside Club was designed with them in mind.”
BNE has deep roots in Livingston. The town is home to its company headquarters and BNE has built hundreds of homes in the area, including The Pointe at Livingston and Vizcaya in nearby West Orange. Formerly recognized as “Millennium Homes”, BNE has become widely recognized for its quality craftsmanship, superior designs and growing portfolio of rental communities.
“We set out to create something truly unique and special at The Hillside Club,” said Marc Pantirer, Project Manager for BNE. “We had lofty expectations, and I’m proud to say the finished product has more than lived up to them. Livingston is our backyard, so the fact that we are able to offer a new luxury housing option that allows people to experience this wonderful town is incredibly satisfying.”
Located at 1000 Murray Court (GPS: 247 West Northfield Road), The Hillside Club offers an intimate collection of one- and two-bedroom layouts, with limited den and loft options available, at monthly prices starting from $2,195. Even before the official grand opening of the community, almost 30 percent of the residences in the community have been leased.
Well-appointed one-bedroom apartments at The Hillside Club range from 791 to 1121 square feet of living space, while sprawling two-bedroom layouts range in size from 1134 to 1831 square feet. Each residence includes such high-end finishes as hardwood flooring in the living areas, plush carpeted bedrooms, nine-foot ceilings and oversized windows. High-efficiency washer/dryers are included within every home and abundant closet space is designed into each floor plan. Chef-inspired kitchens offer stunning stone countertops, a stylish subway tiled backsplash, pendant lighting and stainless steel appliances.
Extending the meaning of “home”, residents of the community also enjoy a distinguished collection of modern clubhouse amenities, such as a state-of-the-art fitness studio, heated outdoor pool and complimentary WiFi. A residents’ lounge offers space to entertain with its billiards, fireplace, kitchenette and lounge seating.
The Hillside Club is situated in a charming, leafy neighborhood just minutes from Routes 280, 10 and 24. In addition to its easy access to highways, Livingston offers a convenient commute to Manhattan via nearby NJ Transit train and bus service. Shopping and dining opportunities are abundant in the town, and attractions such as the Mall at Short Hills, Paper Mill Playhouse, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, South Orange Performing Arts Center and the Prudential Center are all just a short drive away.
