The builder of a new 421-unit luxury apartment building in Bogota has unveiled the property’s vast selection of indoor amenities.
Known as The Atwater, the complex at 1000 West Fort Lee Road is home to more than 30,000 square feet of offerings and common spaces for its residents, according to PCD Development. Those include a clubroom with billiards and a bar, a resident lounge with a fireplace and a high-end, 2,200-square-foot fitness center with Fitness-on-Demand and yoga studios.
PCD has opened the spaces with protocols and practices in place to protect against the spread of COVID-19, with features such as air handlers that are outfitted with ultraviolet sanitizers, the firm said. Meantime, the resident-only business center has Steelcase Brody pods with protective screening for each person, while door handles and elevator buttons are wrapped with self-cleaning surface technology and the community will use an app-based reservation system for the amenity spaces to help maintain social distancing.
“Amenities remain an important part of the overall lifestyle residents are looking for in a new, modern apartment community,” said Jonathan Stein, founder and managing member of New Providence-based PCD. “Of course, the realities of the COVID-19 era have spurred some meaningful changes to uses and safety measures. We believe we have found some creative solutions to current concerns while still delivering a lifestyle experience that is second to none in the Bergen County marketplace. And we’re not done yet. Our full roster of resort-like outdoor amenities will debut this spring.”

The Atwater, which opened for leasing last fall, also features a game and arcade room, a coffee bar, an Amazon package locker system and a children’s playroom. Outdoors, residents will have access to a heated pool, a kitchen, a movie screen and yoga and stretching lawn, along with a 2,000-linear-foot waterfront walkway and dog park.
Upon completion, the complex of four- and five-story buildings will also include retail services, indoor bike storage, a dog wash station and a public dog park, according to a news release. They will complement a property where monthly rents start in the $2,000s, with incentives.
“Renters who want additional peace of mind and an added level of safety appreciate that these homes are brand new and have never been lived in before,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the community’s marketing and leasing agent.
