Renters have responded to a 220-unit apartment complex that is taking shape in Livingston, where the second of five buildings is on its way to becoming fully leased.
The developer, Squiretown Properties, is building the community known as Parkvue at Eisenhower Parkway and Route 10. Project executives say the first building leased all 32 of its units in a just few weeks, while the 62-unit second phase is now 75 percent leased after about six weeks.
“It has everything a tenant could ever need and want,” Eli Montag, director of leasing for Parkvue, said in a prepared statement. “The prestigious Livingston address, for one, is a major attraction that appeals to all demographics. We are appealing to those looking to upgrade their lifestyle without compromising their commute.”
Occupancy for the second building is scheduled for August, while a third is expected to be delivered by the fall. Sitting on 21 acres, the community includes amenities such as a health and fitness center, heated outdoor pool, sports court and walking paths, along with a clubhouse that Montag said would be “the centerpiece of excitement through the year.”
“It’s the perfect combination of designer-inspired apartments coupled with our enormous wealth of amenities and community features that make it extremely desirable,” Montag said. “If you deliver this type of product with a country club lifestyle at a reasonable price, then you have a winning combination.”
The community at 211 Eisenhower Pkwy. is about five minutes from Interstate 80 and a half hour from Manhattan. Apartments have high-end finishes, while each building will offer underground parking with elevator access to residence levels.
The project was designed by Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners, while Valley National Bank has provided construction financing.
“It’s all about quality and value,” said Sam Gershwin Sr., vice president of Squiretown Properties. “Renters are smart. They know good value when they see it.”
