Fisher Development Associates, which has introduced nearly 2,000 residential homes in downtown Jersey City, said Aug. 3 that Hudson River Gold Coast renters are looking for buildings that were designed with larger homes and extensive amenity offerings before the pandemic.
With more than 70,000 square feet of resort amenities, Fisher Development Associates’ The Vantage Collection in Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor North neighborhood has been well ahead of the curve.
Bozzuto, the property management company for The Vantage Collection, opened leasing for the second tower with fully-furnished model apartments and completed amenity spaces available to tour.
Designed by S9 Architecture, The Vantage Collection features twin, 45-story rental buildings boasting some of the largest apartment homes in Jersey City’s new construction marketplace, and one-of-a-kind views of the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Harbor Marina and the Manhattan skyline.
“As Jersey ‘Gold Coast’ cities roar back to life, the Hudson County rental market is registering high velocity from people receiving back to work notice and seeking a return to the vibrant and energetic urban lifestyle they’ve sorely missed,” said Brian Fisher, president of Fisher Development Associates. “In a post-COVID world, these renters are acutely aware of what they need in an urban apartment and the preference is for flexible floorplans that can be separated for dedicated uses and resort-like outdoor facilities that provide relaxing and healthy environments for residents.”
An ability to satisfy the demand for oversized homes and amenities is the main reason leasing launched with an onslaught of demand for the second waterfront tower in The Vantage Collection, which introduced a mix of 452 studio, one- and two-bedroom residences on Jersey City’s Morris Canal. Contemporary floorplans feature designer kitchens with stainless steel appliances and quartz counters, baths with custom vanities, Kohler fixtures and glass-enclosed showers, recessed LED lighting, in-home washer and dryer units and energy-efficient systems.
Social and recreational facilities exclusive to renters in the second Vantage building include a 45th floor Sky Lounge, fully-equipped fitness center, yoga studio, children’s playroom, business center, coworking lounge with private work pods, game room, media room, sculpture garden, covered parking, dog wash and more.
In addition, a sixth-floor activities deck shared with its sister building will provide access to two pools, a basketball court, great lawn, fire pits, a 12-station BBQ area, an outdoor children’s play area, dedicated outdoor dog run, outdoor fitness area, terrace and bar, shared gardening beds, and lounge and tiered seating. Hotel-inspired services include a 24-hour attended lobby, lobby lounge, Amazon package lockers, bicycle storage and more.
The new tower will also deliver 6,300 square feet of retail space.
The Vantage Collection lies in downtown Jersey City and provides access to transportation into Manhattan via the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH stations and New York Waterway ferry service. The buildings are adjacent to the Paulus Hook and Van Vorst Park neighborhoods and just steps away from the dining/nightlife scene on Newark Avenue. Liberty State Park is also nearby.
