Hekemian & Co. has unveiled a new 254-unit residential building in Hackensack, the latest addition to the city’s growing stock of luxury apartments.
The developer on Thursday announced the debut and launch of leasing at The Current on River, a six-story complex at Camden and River streets. It’s now touting the collection of junior, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments as an alternative to higher-cost rental markets, but with similar amenities and mass transit access.
“The Current on River offers all the amenities, conveniences and advantages of a city like Manhattan or Hoboken without the crowding or price tag,” said Bryan Hekemian, principal of Hekemian & Co. The locally based firm noted that prices at The Current start at $1,950, calling it “a commuter’s dream with easy access to car, bus or train.”
“There’s literally a bus to Manhattan right outside the door,” he added.
March Construction Associates Inc. served as the project’s construction manager, while Hekemian & Co. tapped Hartman Design Group to design the building’s interiors. Apartments offer two finish options, luxury appointments and private balconies, with some units overlooking the two interior courtyard spaces.
The complex, located at 18 East Camden St., is home to amenities such as a pool and sun deck, an outdoor lounge, a modern fitness center and a work lounge with private conference rooms and free coffee. The developer also noted that The Current’s multilevel parking garage has controlled access at every level, allowing residents to park on the floor where they live.
“All of these accents are inspired by the city’s rich roots, seamlessly blending Hackensack’s history with its future as a revitalized hub for professionals,” said Hekemian, whose family has been part of Hackensack for more than 80 years. “By partnering with Hartman Design Group, we were able to bring this incredible history to life in a residence that reflects the needs of the modern, millennial professional.”
