HOBOKEN, N.J. – Tyler Dorsey and her boyfriend conducted an extensive apartment search in New York City and its immediate suburbs after relocating to the area from Seattle, WA. Manhattan, Jersey City and Hoboken were all originally on the list of possible new home destinations as the couple sought the perfect place to establish roots in the New York metropolitan region.
“We wanted a charming, safe and fun neighborhood that offered plenty to do,” says Ms. Dorsey, who had owned a single-family home in the Emerald City. “In Hoboken, we can be in so many places in minutes, whether it’s Manhattan, nature, museums, nearby beaches or local airports. We decided to concentrate on rental homes here.”
After narrowing her search down exclusively to Hoboken, Ms. Dorsey focused on the City’s north end, visiting older Hudson River waterfront apartment buildings and classic brownstone rentals.
“Most of what we visited had dated common areas and uninspiring unit renovations,” Ms. Dorsey recalls.
Looking for something exciting and new, Tyler and her boyfriend walked past Park + Garden, a brand new collection of 212 upscale apartments and world-class amenities at 1450 Garden Street. Designed for LEED® Gold certification, the luxury building immediately stood out.
“The other properties were not as nice or as well-designed as Park + Garden,” she says. “This building is modern and smart, with high-end finishes throughout. All of the commons areas are clean and spacious. The floorplans are perfect and the high ceilings and huge windows allow for incredible views.”
Everything Park + Garden had to offer – from its dynamic urban location to its luxury homes, first-rate amenities and overall “green” lifestyle — made the building ideal for Ms. Dorsey and her boyfriend to start a new life on the east coast.
“We love the hip and luxurious amenities,” Ms. Dorsey points out, “and getting packages is a dream, either by the front desk team or lock boxes. The management team is also awesome, friendly and always ready to help.
“The location is very cheerful with easy access to Manhattan by NY Waterway ferries and the ability to quickly leave town by car. We can also walk around for dining, shopping and day-to-day conveniences. Topping it all off is the green element, which is always preferred. We get energy efficiency with great water pressure.”
More than 50% of the homes at Park + Garden are now leased as renters such as Ms. Dorsey are choosing to make Hudson County’s most sought-after new apartment community their home.
Thoughtfully-designed one-, two- and three-bedroom residences at Park + Garden 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 tour. 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, 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.”
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Park + Garden is the first large-scale rental building to open in Hoboken in years. The luxury rental community features two 12-story residential towers consisting of lavish amenities and an enclosed parking garage. There are also 13,000 square feet of street-level retail space and 32,000 square feet of educational space.
