UNION, N.J. – A major priority for Brooklyn couple Stanley and Sandra Debarros in their retirement years was to be as close to family as possible. So, when their daughter purchased a home in vibrant Union, NJ, it was time to cross the Hudson River and find a new apartment in great proximity to her where they could enjoy retirement surrounded by loved ones.
“We were living on the second floor of a walk-up brownstone in Brooklyn,” Stanley said. “Our daughter bought her house in union and she wanted us to be close to her. We asked her to find us a new apartment.”
It didn’t take long to find the perfect rental building. Her first and last stop was CENTURION Union Center, the dynamic new rental community that is rising in the heart of Union Center within walking distance to the many shops, dining and services in the downtown district of this Union County township.
“We were wowed by the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home at CENTURION Union Center,” he added. “It ended up being the only home we looked at. Our apartment is beautiful; the building is beautiful and the surrounding neighborhood is welcoming with local businesses. Everything about CENTURION Union Center is exactly what we wanted in our new home.”
The second phase of CENTURION Union Center is fast approaching a lease up. Developed by LANDMARK, the boutique four-story building features a selection of one and two-bedroom apartment homes. Residences are lined with designer features and appointments, including nine-foot ceiling heights, wide wood-style plank flooring, vented in-home washers and dryers by GE, and open kitchens with full-size slate GE appliances, gas range stoves, island/peninsula workspaces and quartz countertops. Luxurious baths are equipped with glass-enclosed showers, porcelain tile and polished chrome fixtures.
Design, function, and fun extend to CENTURION Union Center’s suite of modern amenities that enhances the lifestyle experience. Coveted outdoor social spaces are highlighted by a stunning rooftop deck featuring stainless steel grills, dining areas, sundeck, lounge areas and a bar with island seating and flat screen TVs.
Inside the stylish building, there’s a clubroom with a fireplace, kitchen, and seating area; resident lounge with billiards, a state-of-the-art fitness center, children’s playroom, and a lobby coffee room/café. Residents will also appreciate the building’s concierge and premium package management services.
Ideally situated at 945 Stuyvesant Avenue, the luxury building is just steps from Union Center, which is quickly gaining momentum as a sought-after downtown setting with its unique character and streetscapes rooted in tradition and history. Its small-town charm is evident in family-run dining staples like Cioffi's, the famed Italian restaurant which opened over 40 years ago on Stuyvesant Avenue, as well locally owned ethnic eateries serving Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Columbian, Portuguese, Filipino and many other global cuisines. Classic pubs and local boutiques also line the downtown streets. These established businesses have been joined by newer retailers such as Crow and the Coconut Yoga and B Fit n Focused Fresh Juices.
Commuting is a breeze from Union which lies at the crossroad of Routes 78 and 22 and the Garden State Parkway. New Jersey Transit’s Union Station provides service to Newark Penn Station. Buses to New York City depart just a quick walk from Centurion on Morris Avenue.
LANDMARK has been designated by Union Township as the redeveloper of the Stuyvesant Avenue Redevelopment Project and is infusing a new level of energy and excitement into Union Center with nearly 300 new homes and approximately 27,000 square feet of retail space housed in four buildings once complete.
