With nearly 300 apartments and 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, Russo Development launched leasing at the newest luxury rental in its statewide lifestyle community brand in a Union County borough that clocks in at under a mile in area nestled between Westfield and Cranford.

Vermella at Garwood Station is now leasing studios, one- and two-bedroom residences at its commuter-friendly locale adjacent to a Raritan Valley Line NJ Transit station, Russo Development announced Nov. 18. A website for the property was also launched for prospective residents to find additional information or book a private tour of furnished model homes and amenities.

Initial occupancy is slated for December.

“Garwood is a wonderful, close-knit community with a walkable downtown and great access to a myriad of shopping, dining, and community services, as well as public transportation,” said Russo Property Management President Adam Pasternack. “Vermella complements the existing appeal of the neighborhood with a lifestyle-driven experience at an exceptional value.”

Russo Property Management has delivered, and manages, eight additional Vermella communities in the region.

Located at 450 South St., the building will feature approximately 19,500 square feet of street-level retail space with a café, restaurant and more, Russo said.

According to an announcement, the Garwood property aims to achieve the perfect life-work-play balance. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool, sundeck and movie wall, al fresco dining areas and a dog run. Inside, a two-story lobby, clubroom, business and coworking area, fitness center, private dining space and additional features are available to residents.

According to Pasternack, the amenity package is one of the characteristics that sets the Vermella collection apart from other suburban apartments. “It is a hallmark of the … brand and reflective of our commitment to elevate our residents’ lifestyle experience,” he said.

Monthly rents at Vermella at Garwood Station start from the $2,300s, with limited time Grand Opening incentives including one-month free rent.
