Ingerman has broken ground on a planned 138-unit luxury rental community in Bayonne, where it hopes to be at the forefront of Hudson County’s next hot spot for development.
The Collingswood-based developer on Tuesday joined Bayonne city officials, including Mayor Jimmy Davis, to celebrate the construction of what’s known as 19 East. Located off Broadway Avenue in the heart of downtown Bayonne, the site is two blocks from the 22nd Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail station and close to the major highways and bridges connecting the city to neighboring Jersey City, Newark and New York City.
Construction is expected to be complete by early 2018, Ingerman said in a news release.
“This is clearly one of our most exciting projects,” Brad Ingerman, CEO and president of Ingerman, said in a prepared statement. “We think we’re at the beginning of the resurgence of Bayonne — to hopefully follow where Jersey City has come over the past several years, along with Hoboken — that Bayonne will be right on par with those great cities.”
Plans call for 24 studio apartments, 74 one-bedrooms and 40 two-bedrooms within a six-story building, the firm said. Residents will have access to high-end amenities such as a lounge, fitness center, garage parking, an outdoor courtyard, private terraces and extra storage spaces, as well as on-site leasing and management offices.
The development will occupy the former site of a vacant lot, a parking lot and a Bayonne Housing Authority building that had also sat vacant, according to a report by Jersey Digs. The story said rents will range from $1,800 to $2,400.
“I’m very excited about this project,” Davis said at Tuesday’s event, according to Jersey Digs. “The people will now be able to shop, dine, go to cafes, and just bring back Broadway the way we expect it to.”
