Leasing is underway at Clarus Glen Ridge, the highly-anticipated collection of 110 modern rental residences on the border of Glen Ridge and Montclair, developer JMF Properties announced Sept. 14.
As only the second community to carry the “Clarus” brand name created by JMF Properties Founder and Principal Joe Forgione, Clarus Glen Ridge offers residents a lifestyle that emphasizes luxury, comfort, convenience, health and well-being.
The community’s location next to New Jersey Transit’s Bay Street station, and a short walk from downtown Montclair, combines commuting convenience with access to a variety of gourmet restaurants, boutique shops, cafes, galleries and cultural attractions.
Clarus Glen Ridge opens with nearly 50% of its residences already leased during a special early leasing period. One- and two-bedroom residences are currently available at monthly rental rates starting from $2,595.
“Clarus Glen Ridge builds on the tremendous popularity of our first ‘Clarus’ community, Clarus Maplewood, but on a grander scale with more amenities and luxuries,” Forgione said. “We designed this community to offer residents a complete lifestyle package, and the opportunity to take advantage of everything Glen Ridge and Montclair offers. The result is a product that brings a new housing type to the area and sets a new standard for luxury living, one that we are thrilled to showcase to prospective renters now that the community is officially open.”
Located on Baldwin Avenue in the historic borough of Glen Ridge, Clarus Glen Ridge features an elevated take on sophisticated rental living, with every last detail scrutinized from the inside out during the development process.
A curated collection of amenities, interior spaces and exquisite finishes were designed to exceed all the needs and desires of today’s sophisticated renter.
The amenities, residences and interior spaces at Clarus Glen Ridge were inspired by Clarus Maplewood, the multiple award-winning community that captured the 2018 “Community of the Year” honors for mixed-use communities from the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association, and is the first community in New Jersey to earn the prestigious WELL Certification – Gold Level by the International WELL Building Institute, which recognizes buildings designed to enhance the health and wellness of its occupants.
The Clarus Glen Ridge lifestyle is enhanced by the community’s location in Glen Ridge.
The Glen Ridge Historic District comprises more than 90% of Glen Ridge and runs the entire length of the borough. It includes some of the most well-preserved examples of residential architecture from the turn of the 19th Century.
New York City is about 35 minutes away by train. Route 3 and the Garden State Parkway are both easily accessible.
Glen Ridge is home to a number of neighborhood businesses, including a coffee shop, restaurants, a nail salon, a yoga studio and local landmarks such as Glen Gazebo, overlooking the lush green park at Toney’s Brook. Neighboring Montclair boasts a vibrant atmosphere, offering excellent shopping and dining, as well as popular annual events such as the Montclair Film Festival and the Montclair Jazz Festival.
“Clarus Glen Ridge residents can walk to the many restaurants, parks, and cultural attractions that downtown Montclair is known for, but when they return home, they are in a quiet, relaxed suburban neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle,” Forgione said. “It really is the best of both worlds.”
