BOUTIQUE COLLECTION OF 10 UPSCALE CONDOS OPENS SALES IN HOBOKEN’S NORTH END

VIA Lofts Exterior 1HOBOKEN, N.J. – – In a mile-square City known for its sought-after urban-inspired lifestyle, Bijou Properties has introduced a new residential address that will considerably raise the bar for luxury condominium living in Hudson County’s historic Hoboken.

VIA Lofts, a boutique collection of ten upscale condominiums located at 1410 Grand Street, has opened sales delivering a mix sleek and expansive one-, two and three-bedroom floorplans with upscale finishes and appointments to Hoboken’s desirable north end.  Housed in an architecturally-distinct and eco-friendly six-story building, the lavish condominiums at VIA Lofts range from 1,372 to 1,495 square-feet of luxury living space and are priced from $1.195 million.

VIA Lofts is making its debut with a professionally-furnished model home, displaying the long list of sophisticated finishes and appointments found throughout these condominiums, including 11’ foot loft ceilings, high-performance Miele appliances, oversized windows, wide-plank oak flooring and super-efficient VRV central heating and cooling system.  Select homes will offer private terraces, and a limited number of residences will boast New York City views.

VIA Lofts is registered for LEED Platinum certification for homes from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and is the latest sustainable luxury condominium building introduced by locally-based Bijou Properties in uptown Hoboken, N.J.

“We’re excited to official announce the opening of VIA Lofts which will quickly stake its claim as the premier new upscale condominium building in uptown Hoboken,” says Larry Bijou, managing partner of the firm that bears his name.  “Not only will it deliver luxury homes in a high-performing, environmentally-sensitive building, it will do so in a neighborhood quickly rising in prominence thanks to an influx of new retail, entertainment, parks and public spaces, along with a location near some of Hoboken’s most direct commuter access points into Manhattan.”

Designed by MHS Architects, the building features a distinctive multi-colored red and grey brick exterior with oversized windows to blend seamlessly into its neighborhood streetscape.  The top penthouse floor adds to the architectural asset with an aluminum composite, a visually stunning metal finish that continues to waterfall down the edge of the façade into a board-form concrete finish.

“The exterior of VIA Lofts vividly illustrates how we carefully selected high-end materials to deliver an environmentally-conscious condo building to Hudson County,” Mr. Bijou continues.   “For example, in today’s urban market the exteriors of many new multi-family projects are finished with brick panel siding.  At VIA Lofts, we laid traditional brick which is extremely eco-friendly and provides better weather prevention, temperature control and ease of maintenance.

“Aesthetically, despite being hot out of the oven, the specially treated masonry bricks have the distinguished appearance of brick already aged 100-plus years.  The end result is a building that’s not only highly-efficient, but also stylish and contemporary. ”

Residents will enjoy a host of desirable building amenities and services, such as a state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center, landscaped amenity terrace with 42” lynx grilling area, on-site private parking garage and secured individual storage crates and bike racks. There will also be 1,930 square-feet ground floor retail space.

From the moment a resident steps into VIA Lofts, they’ll get a true sense of the quality that awaits them with a welcoming, upscale lobby that features polished concrete floor, exposed concrete walls with bamboo panels, decorative farm door and chic industrial-inspired lighting and fixtures.

VIA Lofts is ideally situated in the upper northwest quarter of Hoboken which is celebrated for being close enough to enjoy all that the City has to offer but in a more peaceful, removed setting.

A host of restaurants, bars, boutique shops and conveniences are within walking distance, including a Trader Joe’s, Bowtie Cinemas, Bierhaus Biergarten, Gravity Vault Rock Climbing Gym, all less than one minute from the building.  There’s also a New York Sports Club nearby, as well as the 14th Street New York Waterway Ferry and direct New Jersey Transit busses which   provide convenient service to midtown and downtown Manhattan.

“Uptown Hoboken provides the vibrancy of an urban downtown with multiple parks, playgrounds, new athletic fields and the scenic Hudson River Waterfront Walkway,” says Irene Perello of Hudson Place Realty, which is handling the sales program for VIA Lofts.

“There’s never a shortage of activities, with boutique shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars along Washington and 14th Streets. The City also hosts numerous waterfront concerts and seasonal fairs and street festivals. And being within minutes of the Lincoln Tunnel and the 39th Street NY Waterway terminal brings all that Manhattan has to offer within close reach.”

VIA is being built in accordance with the USGBC’s LEED guidelines for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings which incorporate responsible site development, energy efficient design and ecological-friendly materials to create environmentally-sensitive urban living environment.

As recognition for its dedication to building responsible homes and buildings, Bijou Properties recently received a 2018 “Smart Growth” award for creating an iconic, mixed-use development in an emerging neighborhood in Hoboken. New Jersey Future, a non-profit organization that promotes responsible land-use policies, named the developers 424-unit 700 Jackson Street rental building one of the recipients of its prestigious annual award.
