A joint venture has completed a new 131-unit luxury apartment building in Jersey City, marking the latest addition to a growing residential neighborhood near the Holland Tunnel.
Known as Sawyer, the project by The NRP Group and Hoboken Brownstone Co. has opened its doors at 39 New York Ave., in an area located just south of the Hoboken border. The developers expect to welcome their first residents this month to the collection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom homes.
March Associates was the project’s construction manager.
“We are thrilled for residents to begin making Sawyer their new home in Jersey City,” said Jonathan Gertman, vice president of development at The NRP Group. “This residential building has given us the opportunity to create a unique living experience in a desirable and growing area.”
Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the developer first detailed its plans for the building in fall 2018. The project marked its expansion to New Jersey, but the latest in Hoboken Brownstone’s 40-year history of building in Hudson County.
The property is north of the Van Leer redevelopment site and at the edge of a formerly industrial section of Jersey City, just west of the Holland Tunnel, where developers have built thousands of new apartments in recent years to create a burgeoning residential area.
Rents at Sawyer start from the mid-$2,100s, with grand opening incentives. The Marketing Directors is the marketing and leasing agent for the building, which has amenities such as a rooftop terrace with sweeping views of Manhattan, grilling and dining areas, a clubhouse with a bar and lounge and a modern fitness center, among others.
Residents will also have complimentary shuttle service to the Hoboken transit center.
