Just six months after it launched leasing, 3 Acres in Jersey City’s West side has found its final tenant.
The milestone for the 629-unit community was announced Sept. 7, with developer 400 Claremont LLC and The Marketing Directors signing the property’s last resident in July.
The 70,000-square-foot community offers a range of amenity and social spaces, including an attended lobby with waterfall feature, a conference room, a screening room, and a game room with mini bowling alley, ping pong, shuffleboard, pinball and arcades.
“This developer is all about creating a wow factor, but also understands design and the need to provide spaces that are inviting and functional,” said interior designer Andrew Van Etten. “It’s a collaborative, creative effort that is fluid throughout the process to deliver the best possible results.”

“When we conceptualized 3 Acres, we envisioned a community that provided a hospitality-inspired lifestyle experience that rivaled signature properties along the New Jersey waterfront and in New York City, but at a much more attractive price point,” 400 Claremont LLC Principal Art Johnson said in a prepared statement. “Fully leasing the building in such a short amount of time underscores the appeal of the building and the ongoing growth of the West Side as a new residential destination.”
According to the announcement, the speed with which 3 Acres leased the homes is unprecedented in the city’s burgeoning West Side. The property offers a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom residences, amenities and retail options that used to be reserved for downtown dwellings or Manhattan high-rises.
400 Claremont worked with longtime interior design partner Andrew Van Etten and Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects on the project, which also includes an onsite coffee shop and restaurant, Three Thirds Café and Table at 3 Acres, respectively.
“We wanted to create a series of niche spaces, from intimate work-from-home cubicles to open lounges, that would take advantage of the vast amount of square footage while avoiding a sense of being in a banquet hall,” Van Etten said in a statement. “We drew from hospitality concepts to provide areas for a mix of activities and atmospheres punctuated by interesting architectural details and finishes.”
