Accurate Builders & Developers is taking the wraps off a long-awaited, 256-unit luxury apartment community in the Somerset County borough of Raritan.
The firm announced this week that it has launched leasing at the complex of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes at 59 Second Ave., boasting a location just steps from NJ Transit rail service and minutes from downtown Somerville. It’s working alongside The Marketing Directors to bring renters to what’s known as Crossings at Raritan Station, with monthly net-effective rental rates starting from $1,578 and incentives of up to two months free.
Immediate occupancy is available.
“We are thrilled to officially kick off leasing at Crossings at Raritan Station,” said Jack Klugmann, CEO and president Accurate Builders & Developers, which is based in Lakewood. “This community reflects our commitment to creating a well-balanced lifestyle for residents that considers stylish living spaces, thoughtful social amenities and great locations. We look forward to welcoming our first residents and watching our vision spring to life.”
Designed by Deveraux and Associates, the complex features amenities and services such as a lobby lounge with a coffee bar, a modern fitness center with virtual training technology, Amazon package lockers, private covered parking and 24/7 onsite maintenance, according to a news release. Outdoor spaces include a lounge area with seating, grilling stations, a fire pit, outdoor games and a meditation garden with hammocks and greenery.
Residents will be adjacent to a stop on NJ Transit’s Raritan Valley line, which offers either direct service to Manhattan or transfers to New York via the PATH system at Newark Penn Station. The complex is minutes from downtown Raritan’s main corridor, Somerset Street, and a mile from the collection of restaurants, retailers and cultural offerings in downtown Somerville.
Accurate Builders also touted the site’s proximity to major highways such as Route 22 and Interstate 287 amd recreational options such as the 1,000-acre Duke Farms estate, along with major employers such as Johnson & Johnson, Bausch & Lomb and LabCorp.
“Right now, there is strong consumer demand for luxury rental properties in suburban markets like Raritan, where residents can enjoy conveniences like walkable downtowns and easy access to mass-transit, but in a low-density neighborhood,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “We’re excited to open our doors to these prospective renters at The Crossings at Raritan Station and to showcase everything this exceptional new community offers.”
