Manhattan Building Co. has taken the wraps off eight upscale townhome apartments at Soho Lofts, a 377-unit rental property in Jersey City.
The firm announced recently that it has begun to market the Townhome Collection at Soho Lofts, a group of units that offer private street entrances, first-floor master bedroom suites and other distinctive design features. The three-, four- and five-bedroom homes range from a 2,371 square feet to more than 3,000 square-feet, with monthly rents starting at $6,995.
Residents also have access to the amenities within Manhattan Building’s larger SoHo West community, which is part of a development that is just south of Hoboken and west of the Holland Tunnel leading into Manhattan. As of last week, the developer said it had already signed the first lease for a townhome at the complex, located at 273 16th St.
“These homes deliver a new level of exclusive luxury apartment living to Jersey City,” Louis Mont, chief operating officer of Manhattan Building Co., said in a prepared statement. “The Townhome Collection offers the same space, appeal and convenience of a classic brownstone, with all the amenities and services of a new and modern rental community.
“The open and airy interiors are loaded with designer finishes and include a long list of features not commonly found in rental homes. We expect these one-of-a-kind apartments to have broad appeal to families that need plenty of room to grow, as well as professionals and roommates who want the added sense of privacy that comes with a two-story home.”
Other features within the townhomes include separate den and office space, open living and dining rooms, eat-in kitchens, large walk-in closets and laundry rooms with side-by-side washer and dryer and utility sink, according to a news release. Amenities at Soho Lofts include an Infinity edge pool, private cabanas, surround sound media room, Zen garden and club room.
The complex off Jersey Avenue is a block from another Manhattan Building Co. property, known as Cast Iron Lofts, which has brought 387 units to the neighborhood over the past two years. The development is also home to retailers, including a gourmet community market and deli and a coffee shop and bar restaurant.
