soma 03SOMERVILLE, NJ, January 14th, 2019 – Leasing has officially opened at SOMA, delivering the newest upscale rental building to the vibrant downtown scene in Somerset County’s Borough of Somerville.

Developed by Sterling Properties, SOMA features 69 apartments at 110 South Bridge Street, a short walk from bustling dining, shopping and nightlife on Somerville’s Division Street Plaza and Main Street Corridor.  The four-story building offers a mix of one- and two-bedroom homes and recreational and social amenities.  Monthly rents begin from $1,550 to $2,700.  Immediate Occupancy is available.

“We’re delighted to officially launch our leasing program and debut the newest luxury address in Somerville’s award-winning downtown,” says Nick Hollenbeck, Director of Sales and Marketing for Sterling.  “SOMA has been designed to offer the exact kind of trendy and chic homes and lively, urban-style environment today’s renter is in search of.   The building has already generated a significant buzz in the market and we fully expect a strong response to its much-anticipated opening.”

Designed by Comito Associates, SOMA will blend seamlessly with the architectural landscape of downtown Somerville.  Homes will range from 585 to 1,290 square feet of space and feature tall 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 designed the project’s unit interiors and common space.

Further enhancing the walkability and activity-rich lifestyle at SOMA is a location just one block from New Jersey Transit’s Somerville Station with service into Newark Penn Station and New York City, bringing all the business, cultural and entertainment delights of Manhattan and northern New Jersey within easy reach.

Closer to home, downtown Somerville has been  named one of the state’s “Great Places” by the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association and was a 2018 recipient of a NJ Future Smart Growth Award for its efforts to create a welcoming and walkable retail and residential district.  The bustling tree-lined district draws thousands of visitors each year to delight in its local shops, boutiques, art galleries, fine restaurants, and many events hosted by the Downtown Somerville Association.

SOMA was also designed to meet LEED Silver standards, which will not only reduce the building’s carbon footprint and minimize its impact on the environment, but also provide residents significant savings by lowering monthly energy bills and more.

“As part of our LEED efforts, we’ve instituted a bike share program our residents will be sure to appreciate,” Mr. Hollenbeck says.  “Rather than getting in a car, they will have access to bikes which will allow them to pedal downtown, save on emissions and also shop locally.”
