Transit-Oriented Community Next to Linden Train Station Now Leasing
LINDEN, NJ – Linden NJ Mayor Derek Armstead recently joined representatives of Accurate Builders & Developers, fellow municipal officials, and other dignitaries for the grand opening of Citizen Linden, a new luxury rental community located just steps from the train station in this Union County city.
Citizen Linden introduces a collection of 234 modern rental residences complemented by a curated offering of lifestyle amenities, 4,500 square feet of onsite retail and an enclosed 292-space parking garage. With a convenient address at 307 West Elizabeth Avenue, the community places residents just a short walk from Wood Avenue, downtown Linden’s main artery of shops, restaurants, and markets, and about a 40-minute train ride to New York Penn Station.
Mayor Armstead helped cut the ceremonial ribbon at the community, officially launching its leasing program.
“In Linden, we are certainly no strangers to development, but I can say that Citizen Linden is one of the nicest of the new developments we have in town,” Mayor Armstead said. “Creating a project of this caliber requires a sense of collaboration, allowing everyone to come together for the common good. We have lowered taxes five years in a row, and the opening of this development will certainly assist in stabilizing taxes on a long-term basis. We are glad that the development team chose to work in Linden, and we look forward to seeing the building fill up quickly.”
Studio, one- and two-bedroom residences are now available at Citizen Linden at net-effective monthly rental prices starting from $1,800, with initial occupancy scheduled for January 15, 2022. Compelling grand opening incentives are available for a limited time, according to The Marketing Directors, which was tapped by Accurate Builders & Developers as the community’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

“Accurate Builders & Developers is committed to transforming neighborhoods and enhancing the lives of its residents, and that is evident in the elegant design, distinctive architecture and attention to detail found at Citizen Linden,” said Jack Klugmann, President & CEO of Accurate Builders & Developers. “We are delighted to open the doors at Citizen Linden, which will be a great addition to this centrally-located community. With its vibrant culture, walkable downtown, and convenient access to mass-transit, Linden offers a great balance between suburban and city-centric living. Citizen Linden adds a modern residential option to that mix, and we look forward to welcoming our first residents.”
Citizen Linden was designed by award-winning Thomas J. Brennan Architects whose founder grew up in town and graduated from Linden High School.
“I have a personal connection to Linden and was delighted to work on this project which brings a modern, urban design to a city that has so much to offer its residents,” said Tom Brennan. “The apartments are open and airy, and through a collaborative effort with the interior designer and landscape architect on behalf of Accurate Builders and Developers, we collectively created a community atmosphere that appeals to today’s residents.”
Citizen Linden’s collection of residences features plush living spaces crafted with today’s sophisticated renter in mind. Modern finishes and appointments such as luxury plank flooring, custom roller shade window treatments, nine-foot ceilings, and an in-residence washer & dryer are found in every home. The community’s contemporary kitchens are functional and stylish, with attractive details such as white quartz countertops, subway tile backsplash, custom espresso cabinetry, chrome Moen? fixtures, a gas range, and stainless-steel appliances.
A full complement of amenities are available to residents, including a lobby lounge, separate resident lounge with a fireplace and demonstration kitchen, a state-of-the-art fitness center with virtual fitness capabilities, and multiple co-working spaces and conference rooms. Coveted outdoor spaces includes two furnished and landscaped courtyards with lounge seating, BBQ and dining areas, firepits and a bar with a television. Residents will also have access to Citizen Linden’s on-site dog park, bicycle share and storage, and private covered parking.
“Citizen Linden meets the increased demand in today’s market for luxury rental residences in a thriving downtown location with convenient mass-transit access,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. “It’s a striking, thoughtfully-designed community that we expect to have widespread appeal.”
Citizen Linden residents are well positioned to enjoy everything the northern New Jersey region offers, with easy access to destinations such as New York City, the Jersey shore, parks, cultural attractions, and everything in between. The Linden train station operates on NJ TRANSIT’s Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines, providing frequent service to Manhattan and major employment centers in downtown Newark. Entrances to the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, and Routes 1 & 9 are all easily accessible for motorists, putting the entire state at their fingertips.
Linden is a tight-knit community with tree-lined suburban streets and a vibrant downtown full of shops, restaurants, bakeries, pharmacies, coffee shops and other local businesses. Walking-distance destinations from Citizen Linden include Pulaski Meat Products, a large European-style market with a variety of specialty items and imported products, and Raymond Wood Bauer Promenade, a beautifully maintained park and amphitheater right on Wood Avenue where free outdoor concerts are regularly held.
