Fields Grade and The Slokker Group have launched leasing at the second piece of a new luxury apartment development in downtown Rahway, the firms announced Monday.
In a news release, the developers said the project has brought another 109 units the property known as The Mint, at 84 Monroe St. The six-story building joins the 116-unit first phase that leased up in 2020, featuring a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes a block south of Rahway’s NJ Transit station.
Monthly rents at the second phase start from $2,095 and are being offered with incentives that include up to two months free, the news release said. The developers have once again tapped The Marketing Directors as its leasing team for the property.
“When we first introduced The Mint, we were excited to provide an elevated rental lifestyle in downtown Rahway which had been growing in appeal thanks to its walkable setting and influx of new restaurants, shops and theaters enhancing its suburban surroundings,” said Nils Berten, U.S. vice president of Slokker International. “The first phase immediately became the signature rental building in this transit-friendly neighborhood, and we’re delighted to build on that experience with a new collection of residences and amenities.”
Amenities at The Mint, which was designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, include a game room, co-working spaces, a conference room, work pods and a library, the news release said. A sixth-floor sky lounge offers a bar with seating, large-screen televisions and a pool table, all leading to an outdoor rooftop terrace with lounge chairs, grilling stations and New York City views.
Residents will also have access to an abundance of shared amenities within the first building, including a lounge with a billiards table and work cubes, a fitness center with a yoga room and FitnessOnDemand and a pet spa, the developers said. A second-floor landscaped deck features a swimming pool, grilling and dining areas and a fire pit with lounge seating.
Additionally, The Mint has private garage parking with electric charging stations and supportive retail space, the developers said. At the nearby train station, renters have access to both the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines, while they are steps from downtown Rahway’s arts, dining, shopping and nightlife offerings.
“Providing residents with access to the full complement of amenity and social spaces in both buildings advances our goal of creating a truly immersive living experience where residents can enjoy an elevated sense of community and belonging,” said Robert Caulfield, a Fields Grade principal. “We’re proud to bring that vision to life with the launch of our second phase.”
Minno & Wasko and Factioned collaborated on interiors at The Mint, where a limited number of two-bedroom homes come with a bonus den, while select apartments feature private balconies and rooftop terraces.
“These open and bright floorplans are a welcoming respite for residents returning home from work or the busy social scene in downtown Rahway,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “Designer finishes can be found throughout the homes, creating an upscale but comfortable living environment.”
