JERSEY CITY, N.J. – In what is the latest sign of the neighborhood’s transformation into an active and vibrant residential and arts destination, 25 Senate Place has opened across the street from MANA Contemporary in Jersey City’s burgeoning Journal Square Arts District.
Featuring 265 uniquely-designed rental residences, upscale amenities and a soon-to-open Modcup roastery and café, 25 Senate Place delivers a modern living experience to the neighborhood’s mosaic of repurposed warehouses and growing arts scene. Initial occupancy is slated for November, 2015.
“It seems like every urban area on a cultural upswing is compared to Brooklyn, but Jersey City, with its influx of new arts venues, street performances, restaurants, boutiques and coffee houses, really is on a similar trajectory,” said Art Johnson, Managing Director of Senate Place Urban Renewal, which developed 25 Senate Place. “It’s an atmosphere that appeals to a cross section of people, and one that has been taking root in our location. We’re excited to now add a new luxury residential option to the mix which places residents in the heart of a developing arts district at a price point that is attractive for Jersey City.”
The fulcrum of the neighborhood’s cultural transformation was the opening of MANA Contemporary, the 2 million square-foot art center featuring more than 10 exhibition spaces, a theater, dance studio, foundry, silkscreen studio, and 150 artist studios, as well as the Richard Meier Model Museum and other renowned tenants. Art House Productions, an active visual and performing arts organization, is located in Journal Square, as is the revitalizing Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre and award-winning Hudson County Community College Culinary Arts Institute (CAI). A more traditional locational advantage is the Journal Square Transportation Center with convenient PATH service to downtown and midtown Manhattan and Newark Penn Station.
Designed to embrace the fabric of the neighborhood while drawing new residents to the emerging location, 25 Senate Place features a five-story design with a brick façade with metal accents that enhances the streetscape, and a collection of well-appointed residences with unique and varied floor plans to meet a variety of needs.
Studios, one-bedroom apartments, one-bedroom-plus-den floor plans and two-bedroom duplex lofts with coveted outdoor space, are offered at monthly rents starting from $1,695. Found throughout the residences are expansive windows that draw in natural light, hardwood floors, open kitchens with espresso cabinetry and quartz countertops, modern baths, and washers and dryers.
Well-thought-out amenities and services include a lobby with 24-hour doorman, fitness center, resident lounge, game room, landscaped terrace and courtyard, Dog Park, shuttle service to the PATH Station, available onsite indoor parking and onsite property management.
Residents will also appreciate having one of the region’s most celebrated independent coffee providers at their doorstep as Modcup, which roasts green coffee beans from around the world, will open a café and roastery in one of the building’s street-level retail spaces. For canine lovers, Club Barks Doggy Day Care will also set up shop onsite.
In addition, a Citi Bike Jersey City bike sharing station is located on Dey Street just steps from 25 Senate Place. It is one of 35 stations city wide that will house 350 bikes to provide a new, environmentally-friendly, healthy and affordable 24/7 transportation option for Jersey City.
