JMF Properties has made transit-centered development the backbone of its development business.
JMF President Joseph Forgione alluded to this last year when he broke ground on Quin Sleepy Hollow — a luxury rental community of 212 residences in the Sleepy Hollow section of Plainfield — declaring that a location near a train station is “The single most important amenity a town can have.”
Quin Sleepy Hollow, now under construction, will comprise 212 luxury rental residences set about a half-mile from Plainfield’s Netherwood train station and less than a mile from the city’s Fanwood train station – both on NJ Transit’s Raritan Valley Line. Forgione hopes to attract commuters, young professionals and empty-nesters to the project, which boasts a suite of amenities including a club room with common kitchen, a community room-business center, a theater-multimedia room and a bike-share program.
Further burnishing its transit-friendly credentials, JMF Properties is working with NJ Transit to ensure that a bicycle-share program at Quin Sleepy Hollow will also be available at the Netherwood and Fanwood train stations, so residents can cycle to and from the station easily, either one-way or round trip.
