JERSEY CITY, NJ – The Agnes is setting the pace for luxury apartment living on Jersey City’s West Side, having leased 75% of the homes in its second rental phase in the first month of availability.
Achieving the notable milestone in such short order is a continuation of leasing momentum generated in the community’s initial phase of 145 homes which were fully leased less than five months after opening, Ideally located just west of Downtown Jersey City, the new phase of 68 well-appointed homes has had great appeal to residents seeking an alternative to the congestion and density of downtown urban centers while still wanting to be close to the lifestyle offerings they provide.
The Agnes features a mix of studio to three-bedroom homes. Select floorplans include a den for additional living and entertaining space and the flexibility to utilize as a home office or for visiting guests. Monthly rents start from $1,765, including Grand Opening incentives that include up to two months free on a 14-month lease. The Marketing Directors is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for The Agnes.
“The West Side is broadening its appeal in Jersey City’s rental market by offering affordable luxury apartments in a vibrant urban neighborhood,” said Greg Russo, a principal with Fields Grade, which is developing The Agnes with Blumberg & Freilich Equities “The Agnes has effectively tapped into the large pool of renters who are now turning their attention to this once-hidden residential treasure by offering attractively priced, upscale homes in a well-amenitized building in a location near a dynamic mix of restaurants, retail shops and cafés with great access to downtown Jersey City, Manhattan, and business and entertainment centers heading west.”
