A new 424-unit luxury apartment building on the western edge of Hoboken is now 50 percent leased, a milestone that comes less than six months after a joint venture debuted the property.
The developers, Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corp., on Tuesday touted the activity at the building known as 7 Seventy House alongside agents with The Marketing Directors. They also noted that move-ins are well underway at the building, which was designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and is now home to more than 150 residents.
Located at 700 Jackson St., steps from Hoboken’s 9th Street light rail station, the 14-story complex offers a mix of floorplans ranging from studios to three-bedroom units and some 90,000 square feet of high-end amenity space.
“Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation have been trailblazers on Hoboken’s western edge, creating cutting-edge properties that accentuate the neighborhood’s desirability and its ease of commute,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “7 Seventy House embodies all these attributes with a rental lifestyle unlike any other found in Hoboken. Not only does it elevate urban living with stylish homes and a seemingly endless list of amenities, but the incorporation of public open space, plazas and park and playgrounds has created a sense of strong community that permeates throughout the building.”
Featuring multiple terraced setbacks, a glass and brick exterior and a columned entryway, 7 Seventy House also includes 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Amenities for residents include a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, fire pits and grilling stations, outdoor gardens and a multilevel gym, along with a play room, game room, indoor bike storage and on-site dog park.
Monthly rents start in the $2,600s, the developers said, citing limited-time incentives that include one-month free on a 13-month lease.
