A brand new upscale apartment community will officially be introduced in 2018 near Somerville, N.J.’s award-winning downtown district, recently named one of the state’s “Great Places” by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association.

Livingston, N.J.-based Sterling Properties has received approval to develop the four-story building which will deliver 69 luxury apartments to 110 South Bridge Street in this Somerset County Borough.  Called SOMA, after the building’s location South of Main Street, the project will consist of studio, one- and two-bedroom homes. SOMA will be within walking distance of New Jersey Transit’s Somerville Station, the bustling Division Street Plaza and the many shops, services, dining and entertainment on Main Street.

Initial Site work on the property is expected to begin this spring.

“There are many factors we consider when choosing new development opportunities, topped by demand, location and a high level of commutability,” says Nick Hollenbeck, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sterling Properties.  “SOMA has all these attributes and an energetic downtown with great restaurants and retail.”

Designed by architecture firm Comito Associates, SOMA will blend seamlessly with the architecturally landscape of downtown Somerville.  Homes will range from 585 to 1,290 square feet of space and feature nine-foot ceilings, washer/dryer in every unit, stainless steel appliances and designer finishes.  The building will also offer a state-of-the-art fitness studio and tech lounge.  Interior Design firm Mary Cook and Associates has been hired to design the project’s unit interiors and common space.

SOMA is part of an aggressive development strategy implemented by Sterling Properties, which has nearly 1,000 homes under construction or planned for 2018 across a wide variety of markets and product types.  “Much of our focus has been on transit-oriented communities in livable and walkable locations,” Adds Jeffrey Garfinkel, Director of Acquisitions for Sterling.  “SOMA, for example, is just down the block from Somerville Station which provides easy access into Newark Penn Station and New York City.”
