HOBOKEN, N.J. – A short time away from Hoboken’s nightlife, dining, shopping and entertainment was enough to convince Lindsay Moore just how much she missed the excitement of this mile-square City.
After residing in Hoboken for three years, Ms. Moore decided to move to the Estuary, an apartment community in nearby Weehawken.
“I moved to the Estuary, as I was looking for an upscale, newly constructed building, and it offered all of that,” she recalls. “After a year there, however, I missed the convenience of being able to walk when I wanted to run a quick errand or two.”
With a return to Hoboken on her mind, Ms. Moore drove past Park + Garden, a new collection of 212 luxury apartments with resort-style amenities and services just blocks from the Hudson River waterfront at 1450 Garden Street. The building immediately stood out and Ms. Moore began to weigh her options.
“Facing the end of my lease, I had a choice to make: stay at the Estuary or move into a brand new home at Park + Garden,” Ms. Moore says.
Park + Garden, with its prime uptown location, spacious and beautifully-designed apartments and magnificent views, quickly won out.
“It was the perfect place for me to come back to Hoboken,” Ms. Moore remarks. “The views of downtown NYC were a big draw and the large windows were a huge improvement over the sliding glass doors at my last apartment. I also love the extra pantry space.”
Of course, the ability to experience Hoboken’s energetic environment just steps away from Park + Garden was a driving factor.
“I enjoy the peacefulness of uptown, and yet Park + Garden is still close enough to everything Hoboken has to offer,” she says. “I can walk out my front door and have an array of options to choose from, ranging from restaurants, shopping and bars to farmers markets, parks and more. New York City is also a short PATH, bus or ferry ride away.”
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Park + Garden is the first large-scale rental building to open in Hoboken in years. The mixed-use design features two 12-story residential towers consisting of lavish amenities and an enclosed parking garage. There’s also 13,000 square feet of street-level retail space and 32,000 square feet of educational space.
Thoughtfully-designed one, two and three-bedroom residences feature high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, bamboo flooring and kitchens with granite countertops, sleek cabinetry and Energy-star stainless steel appliances. Select homes boast spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline. Monthly rents at Park + Garden start at $3,250. Fully-furnished model homes are available to view. Homes are available for immediate occupancy.
A full suite of recreational and social amenities enhance residents’ lifestyles, including an attended lobby, state-of-the art gym, multiple club rooms, courtyards, outdoor pool and landscaped deck, additional laundry facilities, bike storage and a 383-car on-site fully automated parking facility. Renters also have access to a shared multi-use recreational room/basketball court.
Situated directly across the Hudson River from midtown Manhattan, Hoboken is well-known as one of the most dynamic City environments along the Hudson County “Gold Coast” with a bustling main street, exciting nightlife and well-rounded recreational and social opportunities. Park + Garden offers a pedestrian-friendly design with a private street entrance to create an intimate atmosphere while allowing residents to fully embrace all the elements of this walkable residential setting and its easy access to mass transportation.
“Uptown Hoboken blends the vibrancy of an urban downtown with a family-friendly atmosphere featuring multiple parks, playgrounds, new athletic fields and the scenic Hudson River Waterfront Walkway,” says Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, the exclusive leasing and marketing agent for Park + Garden.
“There’s never a shortage of activities, with boutique shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars along Washington and 14th Streets and the nearby Bow Tie movie theatre. The City also hosts numerous waterfront concerts and seasonal fairs and street festivals. Within minutes of the Lincoln Tunnel and the 39th Street NY Waterway terminal, Park + Garden also brings all that Manhattan has to offer within close reach.”
