JERSEY CITY, NJ – Park View Academy, an innovative new daycare facility, has signed a lease to open its first location at Vantage, the luxury high-rise rental building in downtown Jersey City, N.J.’s Liberty Harbor North neighborhood.
Slated to open in Early 2019, the new early childhood school will serve both residents of Vantage and the community-at-large, according to Fisher Development Associates, which is developing the 448-home waterfront building overlooking the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Harbor Marina.
Park View Academy’s mission is to create a safe, educational, and friendly environment for the children under their care. They believe every child is unique and their growth depends on patience, understanding encouragement, and lots of love! Every day will bring a new and exciting challenge for your little one to experience. The center is the first collaboration between two local veterans of Hudson County child care, partners Yeon Benkowitz, owner of Lucie Goosey Toddler Enrichment in Jersey City, and Diane Branco, owner of World of Wonder daycare center (WOW) and Wowkids, LLC in Hoboken, NJ.
“It’s no secret Jersey City’s demographic is shifting to include more and more young families and there’s a growing need for high quality child care services,” Mrs. Benkowitz says. “We’re establishing Park View Academy to help fill this demand. We hope to offer parents a valuable service in a state-of-the-art facility that draws on the expertise of not only two local child care professionals, but also two experienced Jersey City moms.”
Park View Academy will occupy approximately 4,600 square feet of ground floor retail space at Vantage. The facility will feature a large play area to strongly encourage a high level of child interaction.
“We searched neighborhoods in downtown Jersey City for nearly three years trying to find the right location,” Mrs. Benkowitz adds. “We were fortunate Vantage was brought to market by Fisher Development Associates and chose the building for our debut facility because the space is beautiful. We also love the neighborhood feel and its location near the light rail and right off Marin Boulevard makes its accessible for parents.”
The 45-story Vantage boasts approximately 5,000 square-feet of supportive retail space. The LEED-certified building at 33 Park View Avenue has been an important ingredient in Liberty Harbor North’s growth into a 21st Century urban destination where inspired living spaces blend with community services and shops to create a vibrant live-work environment for today’s urban professional.
“Park View Academy is not only a great addition to Vantage, but to the entire downtown Jersey City community,” says Brian Fisher, principal of Fisher Development Associates. “An extremely high quality and easily accessible facility such as this will unquestionably help to lessen the pressures many local parents face trying to find a safe and nurturing educational environment that’s also convenient.”
Designed by S9 Architecture, Vantage features studio, one-, and two-bedroom homes, priced from the low $2,000s. Residences at Vantage have separated themselves from the competition by providing some of the largest apartment floorplans in Jersey City’s new construction marketplace and marveling views of the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Harbor Marina, and Manhattan skyline.
