A development group has opened the doors to its newest project in Hoboken, a 424-unit luxury apartment building on the city’s emerging west side.
The joint venture, which includes Bijou Properties and Intercontinental Real Estate Corp., on Thursday announced the launch of leasing at 770 Jackson St. Known as 7 Seventy House, the 14-story property is minutes from the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail’s 9th Street station and features floorplans ranging from studios to three bedrooms.
The homes are priced from the $2,300s, with immediate occupancy available and opening incentives that include one month free on a 13-month lease.
“7 Seventy House offered an opportunity to further elevate Hoboken’s burgeoning west side which has experienced a lifestyle upswing in recent years with a vibrant new mix of retail, dining, parks and public amenities complementing its cultural core at Monroe Center and access to public transportation,” said Larry Bijou, managing partner of Bijou Properties.
“This new offering will add to the unique energy and appeal of the neighborhood by blending a luxury, amenity-rich residential property with a location that will encourage residents to come together and enjoy the surrounding assortment of shops, services and open gathering spaces in the area. These include a brand-new playground, state-of-the-art gymnasium and public plaza, all just steps from their front door.”

Designed by MHS Architects, 7 Seventy House features a tower with multiple terraced setbacks, a glass and brick exterior and a columned entryway. The building also includes 25,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space that will serve residents and the Hoboken community.
The Marketing Directors is the marketing and leasing agent for the property, which has high-end apartment interiors and some 90,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space.
“Intercontinental’s investment in the ‘Seventy House’ apartment housing development presented a unique opportunity to make excellent risk adjusted returns for our fund investors while creating hundreds of union labor jobs, and to partner with the City of Hoboken in delivering this vibrant community space,” said Peter Palandjian, chairman and CEO of Intercontinental Real Estate Corp. “Through our partnership with Bijou Properties and MHS Architects, we have delivered an extraordinary level of comfort and luxury. We cannot wait for the community to see what we have created.”
The project is the latest joint venture involving Bijou and Intercontinental, which have also teamed for the north Hoboken property known as Vine at 900 Monroe St.
Amenities at 7 Seventy House include a penthouse pool and roof deck with lounge seating, an expansive amenity deck with fire pits and grilling stations, outdoor gardens and a multilevel gym, along with play room, game room, indoor bike storage and on-site dog park. Bijou also highlighted the inclusion of a co-working lounge, coffee station and a conference room with access to an outdoor deck.
“Residents and their guests are welcomed by an impressive, grand attended lobby that combines natural elements with an industrial ambiance like polished concrete floors and walls to create an interesting, welcoming and functional arrival space,” said Jaqueline Urgo, president of The Marketing Directors. “Design distinction extends to the stylish homes, where designer finishes enhance the living spaces. Rounding out the overall lifestyle at 7 Seventy House is an indoor/outdoor amenity package that’s second to none and sure to fulfill the desires of today’s renter.”
Bijou and Intercontinental built 7 Seventy House in conjunction with a new two-acre resiliency park at the intersection of 7th and Jackson streets, which they donated to the city. The initial installation of the park opened this summer and includes a children’s playground, a one-acre green space designed for active and passive recreation uses, a 6,835 square-foot community gymnasium and infrastructure to capture over 450,000 gallons of rainwater.
