Kushner Real Estate Group is set to unveil more than 200 new upscale apartments in Bayonne, marking the second leg of a three-phase project in the city’s waterfront redevelopment area.
The firm said the complex, Bay 151, will more than double in size with the addition of the 213 units slated to come online Jan. 1. Preleasing is now underway at the newest phase, which will have options ranging from studios and three-bedroom units.
Monthly rental rates start from $1,910.
“Bay 151 has quickly become one of Bayonne’s most desirable residential addresses,” said Jonathan Kushner, KRE Group’s president. “We’re excited to now bring the second phase to market, which opens the community up to hundreds of new residents looking for more living and outdoor space, abundant amenities and a well-connected lifestyle — all at an attractive price point.”
KRE said the complex, designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, is steps from Bayonne’s 45th Street light rail station and sits among a growing list of restaurant, retail and entertainment options in the city. The new four-story building, which follows the successful lease-up of Bay 151’s initial 200-unit first phase last year, also includes an expansion of the community’s social and recreational amenity space to more than 65,000 square feet.
Along with a package concierge in the lobby, the complex offers a modern fitness center and an outdoor deck with dining areas, grilling stations and a resort-style swimming pool, according to a news release. Residents also have access to a library and co-working space, a business center with individual workstations and a billiards room with club seating, among others.
At full build-out, Bay 151 will comprise 625 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space on a scenic, 16-acre property surrounded by New York Harbor. KRE and other developers have sought to capitalize on the city’s access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 78 and the Holland Tunnel, along with open space offerings and national retailers.
