Hartz Mountain Industries is set to reveal the new 469-unit luxury apartment complex within its well-known, mixed-use Harmon Meadow development in Secaucus.
The firm said this week that it is preparing to launch leasing at The Harper at Harmon Meadow, an existing campus of shopping, dining, office space and entertainment off Route 3. Rising on Park Plaza Drive, the community is set to begin move-ins in early February.
Hartz has now opened a temporary leasing office directly across from the three-building complex, where prospective renters can see the model homes and preview information.
“This is one of the most unique locations in the region as it is nestled next to a picturesque nature reserve, yet also offers unparalleled access to a multitude of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues and public transportation,” said Gus Milano, president and chief operating officer of Hartz Mountain Industries. “We’re delighted to now introduce a modern residential offering to the mix which will place residents in the heart of a dynamic destination that comprises all of the elements desired for a vibrant and convenient lifestyle experience.”
The well-traveled and longstanding Harmon Meadow complex is minutes from the New Jersey Turnpike and is home to scores of retailers and commercial users. With the addition of residential units, Hartz is touting a setting that is less dense than neighboring Hoboken and Jersey City, but still provides considerable commuter convenience.
The Harper offers an NJ Transit bus stop on the property, plus complimentary shuttle service to the Secaucus Junction train station and an on-site ticket vending machine, according to a news release. The community will include apartments ranging from studios to two-bedroom units, with spacious layouts and high-end finishes and appliances.
Amenities include a saltwater swimming pool and resort-style outdoor area, plus a fitness center with an on-site yoga studio, spin room and virtual classes. Hartz has also built a new trailside athletic course that allows for walking or jogging through the wetlands with 13 fitness stations.
Each building at the Harper also offers its own resident lounge and dedicated fitness center, the developer said. The community includes outdoor social lounges with game tables and fireplaces, a party room, business conference center, cyber café and several other spaces.
The complex is three miles from the Lincoln Tunnel and is steps away from more than a dozen stores, restaurants and coffee shops, as well as hotels, a post office, convention center, office space and a 14-screen movie theatre with Harmon Meadow.
