Ironstate Development Co. and Pegasus Group have opened the doors to another 270 apartments at a sprawling mixed-use community in Harrison.
The joint venture last week announced the debut of the newest units at Harrison Urby, following the lease-up of the 409-unit first phase. Located at 777 South Third St., the second and final piece of the complex includes additional studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments that are steps from the town’s PATH station.
Renters at the property have access to the complex’s existing amenities, including a chef’s kitchen used to host a continual program of events, a heated saltwater swimming pool and a patio space with fire pits, barbeque grills and other offerings. The property is also home to a two-story entrance café that is open to both residents and the public, which features weekly musical performances and an on-site recording studio.
“Urby is designed as a modern approach to urban apartment living that aims to create a far more inspired rental experience than what is currently offered by the existing apartment industry,” said David Barry, CEO of Ironstate Development. “Similar to how boutique hotels eclipsed corporate brands as the new standard in the hotel industry, we are confident that Urby will become the new standard for rental apartment living.”

The Amsterdam-based firm Concrete designed the architecture and interiors of Harrison Urby, which pays homage to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage with a façade inspired by the design of iron bridges, while Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners served as the lead architect. The joint venture touted the features available in each apartment, including sustainable bamboo flooring and smart technology systems such as smartphone entry and remote HVAC and lighting controls.
As part of its second phase, Harrison Urby has also added a community garden with individual farm plots.
Ironstate and Pegasus have launched leasing at the final 270 apartments, which comes about 15 months after the debut of the first phase. Rents range from $1,875 for a studio to $3,300 a two-bedroom apartment.
