A developer has rented more than 80 percent of a new 176-unit apartment building in Bloomfield, in a sign of success for a long-running downtown revitalization plan.
CHA Partners, which is based in the township, is touting the momentum at its Six Points at Bloomfield Station project after the launch of leasing last fall. The firm has lured renters to the collection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with more than 44,000 square feet of amenity space and a location just steps from NJ Transit rail service, among other perks.
The development at 30 Farrand St. is the second piece of CHA’s three-phase development in Bloomfield.
“With every single redevelopment we undertake, we strive to create something unique that is specifically tailored to the needs of the community, and Six Points at Bloomfield Station was no exception,” said Bill Colgan, managing partner of CHA Partners. “We were thrilled to continue our partnership with the township of Bloomfield on a project that matches up perfectly with the surrounding walkable downtown that’s emerging and that will draw new residents to the area for many years to come. This project further cements CHA Partners’ ability to deliver and meet agreed-upon development goals, and serves as another example of the ways successful public-private partnership can enhance communities at large. ”
Part of the Bloomfield Center Master Redevelopment, the six-story property features a high-end fitness center, a game lounge with billiards and café seating and three entertainment courtyards with fireplaces, fire pits and grills, according to a news release. Other offerings include indoor and outdoor lounges, a co-working and conference space, a pet spa and an Amazon Hub package system.
Six Points follows CHA’s first phase, Bloomfield Station, which was the first redevelopment project in Bloomfield in more than 30 years. Residents at the properties also benefit from the downtown’s mix of restaurants, retail and recreation options, including a Super Foodtown supermarket, along with a covered parking garage.
“Since we launched leasing in November, we’ve received tremendous interest from a wide range of residents, who are seeking the perfect combination of luxury and convenience,” Colgan said. “As outdoor space and fresh air continue to be in high demand, residents at Six Points continue to enjoy our outdoor courtyards, which is unlike anything that’s available in the area, as well as access to balconies and terraces at select units.”
