HOBOKEN, NJ – Vine, the upscale collection of 135 rental homes in the dynamic City of Hoboken, is springing to life with several notable milestones achieved since its January debut.
Most recently, the 11-story building located at 900 Monroe Street welcomed its first residents, signifying the transition into an active, commuter-oriented building is well underway.
“It’s always exciting when renters begin moving in and enjoying a new lifestyle in an neighborhood-centric building,” notes Larry Bijou, Managing Partner of Bijou Properties, which is developing Vine in joint venture with Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation.
“We’re delighted they will now be able to experience first-hand how Vine’s luxurious homes, first-class amenities and an ultra-convenient location steps from the 9th Street Hudson Bergen Light Rail Station combine to deliver Hoboken’s most exciting new residential address.”
Many of Vine’s outdoor amenities will debut this spring, including an expansive landscaped rooftop terrace, joining the building’s state-of-the-art gym, clubroom and fitness center to create a well-rounded urban lifestyle. Also becoming active is a 7,000 square-foot public park adjacent to the building built by Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation. On the immediate horizon, an outdoor pool and sundeck will make its highly-anticipated opening at Vine in May.
“The vibrancy of Hoboken is on full display during the spring season with residents lining popular Washington Street restaurants, City festivals and outdoor markets and fairs, bringing its energetic environment to life,” says Jaqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, exclusive leasing and marketing agent for Vine. “Vine will imitate this spirited atmosphere with a noticeable buzz surrounding the arrival of more and more new residents and the unveiling of our world-class outdoor amenities and public spaces.”
In addition to its full suite of recreational and social amenities, Vine will boast bike storage, free shuttle service to the nearby Hoboken PATH station and an onsite automated parking facility.
Designed by Marchetto Stieve Higgins Architects, the distinctive building offers one-, two- and three-bedroom rental residences which boast a number of designer and energy-efficient features, including sustainable bamboo flooring, oversized windows, kitchens and baths with modern fixtures, Frigidaire and Bosch Energy Star appliances, granite countertops and modern cabinetry; and lavish baths with recycled porcelain tile. Some apartments also provide an additional den. Monthly rents start in the $2,800s and residences are available for immediate occupancy.
In addition to the new residences, Vine features 13,500 square feet of street-level retail space, occupied in part by a Daycare Center.
Situated just steps from the 9th Street Light Rail Station, Vine blends an upscale living experience with the convenience of quick access throughout New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast,” including Hoboken’s PATH, New Jersey Transit and Ferry terminals with service to Manhattan.
Vine has been built in accordance with the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) standards for LEED ® certification. Vine will be the fourth LEED-certified building introduced by Bijou Properties in the City.
Two furnished model homes are available to tour at Vine. For additional information, please visit www.vinehoboken.com or call 201-386-VINE (8463). The onsite Leasing Office is located at 900 Monroe Street, Hoboken, NJ 07030.
