A developer has unveiled the second phase of what will ultimately be more than 230 apartments in Union Township, bringing another 75 units to the municipality’s growing downtown.
The milestone by Landmark, the firm behind the project known as Centurion Union Center, follows a successful first phase of 80 homes. The developer is once again working with The Marketing Directors to draw tenants to the property, located at 945 Stuyvesant Ave., where monthly rents start at $2,100 with grand opening incentives.
Already, the firms have leased more than 30 percent of the 75 newest apartments after a recent preleasing period.
“The preleasing activity we’ve experienced is a testament to how well Centurion Union Center has been received by the public,” said Manny A. Fernandez, founder of Landmark. “We’ve created a sense of community here that is only getting stronger, and we look forward to welcoming our newest residents while also continuing to bolster Union Center.”
Located near a host of downtown retail and dining options, Centurion offers a collection of upscale one- and two-bedroom homes. The property has amenities such as a clubroom, a resident lounge and a high-end fitness center, along with outdoor spaces including a rooftop deck with grilling and dining areas, a sundeck and a lounge.
“Many residents today seek a best-of-both-worlds scenario where they can enjoy a downtown, walkable environment like Hoboken and Jersey City, but with more room and less congestion,” said Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors. “Centurion Union Center delivers. Here, renters find an activity-rich, suburban-like setting alongside the conveniences, shops and services of city-centric living.”
The entire Centurion Union Center project will occupy 724 linear feet along Stuyvesant Avenue, capitalizing on its quick access to Interstate 78, Route 22 and the Garden State Parkway. Once completed, the development will add 236 new homes and some 27,000 square feet of retail space housed in four buildings.
