A new luxury apartment building in downtown Rahway has welcomed its first residents after the recent launch of its leasing campaign.
Developed by Fields Grade and Slokker Group, The Mint features 116 units with layouts ranging from studios to two bedrooms. Additional move-ins are slated to take place in the coming weeks at the five-story building, which is located at 81 Monroe St. in the midst of the city’s dining, arts and entertainment district and a short walk from NJ Transit rail service.
“It’s always an exciting milestone when residents begin moving in and start transforming a building into an active environment,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “This is doubly true at The Mint. The arrival of our initial renters fortifies the already energetic atmosphere in downtown Rahway which is bubbling with lifestyle options for residents to enjoy.”
In a news release Monday, The Marketing Directors said it was offering virtual tours of homes and amenities at The Mint in light of the current travel restrictions and safety precautions related to COVID-19.
Designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, The Mint is steps from Rahway’s train station and a short a drive from the region’s network of highways. Monthly rents at the building start at $1,545, with upscale apartment interiors and amenities such as a clubhouse, a lounge with a billiards table and individual work cubes and a fully equipped fitness center.
Outdoor common spaces include a second-floor landscaped deck with a resort-style swimming pool, a grilling area and a fire pit. The Mint also offers covered parking and 6,000 square feet of retail space.
“The building is a short walk from Main Street, an eclectic business corridor that offers access to hip and authentic bars, eateries, shops and everyday conveniences,” said Nils Berten, USA vice president of The Slokker Group. “It’s a walkable urban neighborhood that’s easily commutable to New York City in just 45 minutes by train, as well as Edison, New Brunswick and the Jersey Shore.”
