Leasing is now underway at The James, a brand-new luxury rental community in the Bergen County borough of Park Ridge, Claremont Development announced June 7.

More than 25 percent of The James’ units have already leased during a special pre-leasing phase, according to Bozzuto, the property management company. The community’s 240 studio, one- and two-bedroom modern residences are now offering private in-person tours by appointment.

Located at 87 Madison Ave., the five-story building includes a full complement of indoor and outdoor amenities that have been curated to maximize resident recreation, relaxation and work-from-home productivity. It also delivers 17,600 square feet of street-level retail space to the heart of downtown Park Ridge, including a public plaza that serves as a natural gathering place.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of leasing at The James and proud to introduce an exciting new residential option to Park Ridge,” said Richard Sciaretta, managing partner of Claremont Development. “The James offers the best aspects of modern, city-style living, but in a charming suburban location. With our downtown surroundings, sophisticated interior spaces, and upscale lifestyle amenities, this is the perfect backdrop for a well-balanced live/work/play lifestyle.”

The generously sized residences offer open floor plans, 9-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring and modern kitchens with stainless steel appliances, a gas range, quartz countertops, espresso cabinetry and a full-height tiled backsplash. Baths boast hotel-style details such as gray tiled floors, quartz countertops and full-height tiled wet walls. All homes also include complimentary window treatments and in-unit washer and dryer. Private outdoor balconies and terraces and spacious den layouts are available in select residences.

Interior amenities include multiple entertainment lounges, a tasting room with catering kitchen, a coworking lounge with private offices and a coffee bar, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a yoga studio. Outside, the ultimate summer retreat awaits at the community’s resort-style plunge pool, complemented by BBQ and dining areas, firepits, outdoor television and lounge areas, and a turf lawn. The James also includes a pet spa, Butterfly video intercom system, covered on-site parking, 24/7 on-site maintenance, and bicycle and resident storage.

Moments from the Park Ridge train station and surrounded by parks, shops and restaurants, The James was designed to take full advantage of its lively downtown location, with the needs of today’s sophisticated suburban renter in mind. Manhattan is easily accessible via New Jersey Transit rail service on the Pascack Valley line. Coach USA also offers daily commuter bus service to and from the Port Authority. For drivers, entrances to the Garden State Parkway and Palisades Parkway are nearby and the George Washington Bridge is a little less than 20 miles away.

Monthly rental rates start from $1,950, with limited-time grand opening incentives of up to one month free on a 13-month lease. Prospective renters who wish to be among the first to visit The James can schedule a tour here or by calling the leasing office at 201-603-3049
