The builder of a new upscale apartment complex in downtown Union has unveiled a series of amenities at the property’s second phase.
The Elizabeth-based firm, Landmark, recently launched leasing for an additional 75 units at what’s known as Centurion Union Center, located at 945 Stuyvesant Ave. It now hopes to lure renters to the newest building with social and recreational spaces such as a clubroom with a fireplace, a kitchen and seating, along with a resident lounge, a fitness center and a children’s playroom, among others.
The developer is also touting outdoor options such as a rooftop deck with stainless steel grills, dining areas, a sundeck, lounge areas and a bar with island seating and flat-screen TVs.
“We leased our initial phase of Centurion Union in the midst of the pandemic, providing great insight into the kind of amenities that are now important to renters,” said Manny A. Fernandez, Landmark’s founder. “With more time spent at home, most renters want modern spaces where they can spend time outside their apartment, whether it’s working, relaxing or socializing with neighbors and friends. This was highly factored into the design of the second phase amenities which are both functional and fun.”
Landmark unveiled Centurion’s 80-unit first phase early last year, just weeks before the state’s COVID-19 outbreak, and has managed to advance the project thanks to ongoing demand from renters. It launched leasing at the second building about two months ago, offering a mix of one- and two-bedroom homes currently priced from $2,100 to $3,180 per month, with incentives.
Part of a four-building development, the project also has on-site parking and 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, most of which has been leased by neighborhood shops and conveniences. The complex at full build-out will have 236 apartments and 27,000 square feet of retail space, offering residents easy access to nearby highways and mass transit.
The Marketing Directors is the property’s residential leasing agent.
“The response to Centurion Union Center has been remarkable with more than 50 percent of its homes leased shortly after opening,” said Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors. “Its clear renters have embraced the opportunity to enjoy luxury apartments in a downtown, walkable environment like Hoboken and Jersey City, but with more room and less congestion.”
