A developer has opened 126 new luxury apartments in downtown Hackensack after its adaptive reuse of a historic bank building in the city.
The firm, Heritage Capital Management LLC, has brought new life to the nearly 100-year-old property at 210 Main St. The 11-story structure is now home to 89 apartments, while the developer has also completed an adjacent four-story building with a collection of 37 homes.
The property known as 210 Main includes studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, with monthly rents starting in the mid-$1,800s.
“Leasing has been robust even while we were putting the finishing touches on this distinctive offering during late fall and early winter,” said Michael Behot, an asset manager with Heritage. “More than one third of the apartments are already leased, and new residents continue to move in every week.”
The firm detailed the project on Wednesday while touting its blend of vintage art deco design elements with high-end interiors and modern amenities. Environetics spearheaded the design, which showcases architectural details such as a preserved façade, original brick accents and up to 10-foot ceilings.
On-site amenities include a 2,500-square-foot fitness center with high-end equipment and an outdoor courtyard with grills, dining spaces and lounges, according to a news release. Heritage also noted that it has transformed the former bank lobby and atrium into a vast media and game lounge with vaulted windows and 25-foot ceilings.
“Hackensack provides renters with an appealing alternative to Hoboken and Jersey City with its walkable downtown, vibrant community and more attractive price point,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the property’s marketing and leasing agent.
In addition to the apartments, the project has 5,500 square feet of street-level retail space, the news release said. The Hackensack Main Street Association has leased one of the building’s three storefronts.
“Of the remaining available spaces, one is adjacent to the former bank vault room,” Behot said. “It lends itself to many interesting possibilities, including a restaurant or bar concept.”
