Hackensack is quickly becoming the next hot submarket in Northern New Jersey. Indeed, Hackensack and adjacent communities continue to see an influx in population as new multifamily, retail and office tenants are moving in to the myriad of commercial properties.
On the Gold Coast, a new submarket, “NoHo” has emerged. Defined as the region North of Hoboken to the George Washington Bridge, developers are breaking ground in Edgewater, Fort Lee and West New York. Leasing of the mix of luxury multifamily and mixed-use assets on the NoHo waterfront is brisk. With accessibility to Manhattan, the region is attracting many high-income earners from New York.
