A new 424-unit luxury apartment building in Hoboken has reached another leasing milestone, thanks in part to a fall surge and continued demand for rentals along the Gold Coast.
Known as 7 Seventy House, the property at 700 Jackson St. is more than 85 percent leased after a recent flurry of more than 20 leases. The developer, Bijou Properties, said the activity in late September and early October is in line with typical trends during the fall season.
“After a slow start to fall, we’ve seen leasing increase dramatically across all of Hudson County,” said Jaqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors, the property’s leasing agent. “Leading the pack has been 7 Seventy House, which truly provides every attribute desired in the 2020 rental market. There’s plenty of room to spread out with an abundance of open space and well-designed homes with highly functional layouts. Its amenity package is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the region, providing access to a long list of recreational amenities to keep residents busy with social distancing guidelines in place.”
Built along Hoboken’s western edge, 7 Seventy House features a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom homes. It also houses roughly 90,000 square feet of amenity space, including a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, fire pits and grilling stations, outdoor gardens and a multilevel gym, along with a play room, game room and on-site dog park.
Outside the building is a two-acre resiliency park built and donated to the city by the development team, according to a news release. The public space boasts a plaza with step seating and a tilted lawn panel, expansive open areas to accommodate vendors and seasonal markets, a children’s playground, a one-acre green space designed for active and passive recreation uses and a 6,835-square-foot community gymnasium.
Bijou developed the property in partnership with Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. The Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects-designed building rises 14 stories with multiple terraced setbacks, a glass and brick exterior and a distinctive columned entryway.
