JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Developer Manhattan Building Company is continuing to buck the trend towards smaller apartments with the launch of its second Cast Iron Lofts rental building in Jersey City that features 232 loft-style residences with high ceilings, soaring living spaces and some of the largest floor plans in the Hudson County marketplace.
The 27-story industrial-inspired building blends expansive studio, one-, two- and a large selection of three-bedroom residences with a full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities and 20,000 square-feet of street-level retail space. Pre-leasing activity has been strong for the apartment homes which will be available for occupancy in March.
Located at 300 Coles Street, between 17th and 18th Streets, the new residential offering is the 2nd property to open within the Cast Iron Lofts collection which is spearheading the creation of SoHo West (South of Hoboken, West of New York City), a vibrant new neighborhood of oversized residences in highly-amenitized buildings on the border of Jersey City and Hoboken. This week’s grand opening follows the successful lease up of the initial Cast Iron Lofts apartment building which is home to hundreds of residents, giving credence to the appeal and market acceptance of this emerging neighborhood setting.
“When we first conceptualized Cast Iron Lofts, we were excited about both the potential of this location, as well as the absence in the area of larger residences catering to those who desire considerably more living space, including families,” said Audrey Spina, Director of Leasing. “The success of the first building proved that we effectively tapped into that market demand, and we’re delighted to now introduce the latest offering of residences which will continue to shape this new neighborhood while providing a clear alternative to what’s being offered throughout Jersey City and Hoboken.”
Cast Iron Lofts II features expansive residences ranging from 885 to 1,885 square feet of living space at monthly rents starting from $2,495. The apartments are complemented by distinctive architectural elements and features, including 10’ ceiling heights with exposed duct work, oversized windows, custom walk-in closets, hardwood floors, granite countertops, bathrooms with stained marble vanity, polished porcelain Carrera-tiled floor and glass enclosed showers with shower surround and massaging shower-heads. There’s also state-of-the-art, fully-equipped kitchens with stainless steel appliances.
“We have a large number of floor plans to choose from, including apartments with a bonus den,” Ms. Spina adds. “These residences are significantly larger than those found in high-rise rental buildings along the waterfront. Each apartment is bathed in natural light and has been designed to maximize layout and location, with many boasting magnificent views of the New York City skyline and/or the Statute of Liberty.”
In addition to the well-designed residences, Cast Iron Lofts residents enjoy a wide array of onsite amenities highlighted by an impressive resort-style 17,000 square-foot rooftop deck with a heated pool, pool-side shower, gas BBQ grills, outdoor fire pit lounge areas, a separate large Bark Park for pets and lush landscaping with a shaded tree grove and sitting area. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center with training stations, yoga studio and fitness on demand system, business center, private conference room, children’s playroom, resident lounge with bar, fireplace, billiard table and large screen TV; a lobby library lounge and bike storage.
“To fully maximize the resident experience, we’re also offering a 24-hour concierge, lobby package display system, valet dry cleaning service, on-demand fitness reservation system and indoor reserved garage parking,” Ms. Spina points out.
Cast Iron Lofts’ unique location provides easy access to some of New Jersey’s most dynamic urban centers. Within minutes, residents can enjoy all that Hoboken and downtown Jersey City have to offer. Complimentary daily shuttle service is provided to nearby PATH stations and NY Waterway ferry terminals, while the community’s SoHo Link service offers transportation to select local destinations, including SoHo in New York City. The building is also convenient to the New Jersey Turnpike extension for an easy commute into north and central New Jersey.
An onsite leasing center is now open at Cast Iron Lofts at 837 Jersey Avenue. For additional information on the rental homes and to schedule a private tour of the furnished model residences and amenity spaces, please call (201) 795-3500 or visit www.castironcollection.com.
