A four-story building is taking shape along Stuyvesant Avenue in Union representng the second phase of Centurion Union, a mixed-use development helping to transform the township’s re-imagined Union Center.
Steel is 75 percent up and the elevator and stair towers are topped out to the fourth floor of the building, which will offer 75 rental residences and 10,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
The construction progress follows the success of Centurion Union’s first phase, a collection of 80 luxury apartments that opened earlier this year and is already 50 percent leased, with a number of residents moved in. The multi-phase project is being developed by American Landmark Development, which was designated by the Township of Union as the redeveloper of the Stuyvesant Avenue Redevelopment Project. When completed, the initiative will deliver 300 new residences and approximately 27,000 square feet of retail space housed in four buildings.
“We’re excited to show tangible evidence of our shared vision with Union Township of providing a downtown destination for residents to live, dine and shop,” said American Landmark Development Founder Manuel Fernandez. “With the first phase of apartments completed and already being enjoyed by residents and construction moving along on the second phase, we’re well on our way to breathing new life and energy into Union Center.”
American Landmark expects to deliver Centurion Union’s second phase in approximately eight months.
Leases have already been signed for a portion of the 10,000 square feet of retail space, including Unity Bank which will anchor the space. The entire project will occupy 724 linear feet along Stuyvesant Avenue.
Located at 975 Bonnel Court, Centurion Union’s initial five-story building features 80 luxury apartments and a host of modern amenities. Net-effective monthly rents currently start at $1,825 for one-bedroom residences and $2,400 for two-bedroom floor plans with up to two free months, a limited time $50 monthly bonus, and a reduced security deposit. Immediate occupancy is available, with additional incentives available for quick move-ins.
The Marketing Directors, Centurion Union’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent, employed a digital presentation to maintain strong leasing velocity. The customized one-on-one experience leverages video, images, floor plans and other digital tools to fully demonstrate the new lifestyle offering.

Residents of the 24-hour access-controlled building also enjoy a modern suite of amenities to provide a complete lifestyle experience, including a fitness center, game room, resident-only lounge, flexible co-working space, children’s playroom, dog run and onsite parking.
