JERSEY CITY, NJ, February 23, 2022 – With designer living spaces, abundant amenities, and personal services once exclusive to select downtown Jersey City high rises and offerings across the Hudson River, 3 Acres has introduced an elevated lifestyle experience to the city’s burgeoning West Side – and renters are responding in historically high numbers.
Just three months since the new luxury rental community opened its doors at 400 Claremont Avenue, nearly half of its 629 residences have been leased – a robust pace that speaks to both the appeal of 3 Acres and the growth of its West Side neighborhood as a new residential destination.
“We made a big bet on the West Side, believing that the positive transformation that has taken place here in recent years paved the way for a top-of-market rental building with an extraordinary amount of indoor and outdoor amenities and high-level services,” said Art Johnson, a principal of 400 Claremont, LLC, which developed 3 Acres and tapped The Marketing Directors as exclusive marketing and leasing agent. “We’re thrilled that the bet has paid off in terms of the overwhelming public reaction. Leasing 300 apartments in just the first three months is a testament to how well this building is connecting with residents.”
Architectural Distinction with Residences for Every Need
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, 3 Acres embraces a sleek, Danish-inspired design that features a mix of reclaimed and contemporary materials, including raw concrete and metal for both a historic and contemporary feel.
One of the more distinguishing characteristics of 3 Acres is its variety of floor plans designed to meet varying needs and lifestyles. Residents can choose from micro studios, studios with alcoves that mirror the space of a one-bedroom home, traditional one-bedroom layouts, and two-bedroom residences. A selection of studio homes is furnished by Resource Furniture, a leader in transformative and multifunctional spaces, which includes three-in-one pieces that quickly transform living areas into work and sleep spaces.
The well-appointed and modern residences create the perfect environment for living, lounging, and working. Upscale finishes include plank flooring, central heat and air conditioning, in-home washer and dryer, complimentary window treatments, and kitchens with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and soft-close cabinets. Lavish baths are adorned with imported glazed porcelain tile floors and vertical subway ceramic tile shower walls, while integrated technology features include Smart Home entry system and thermostat and lighting control.
Monthly rents for 3 Acre’s collection of residences currently start from $1,575 with Grand Opening incentives that include one month free on a 13-month lease. Immediate occupancy is available.
Resort-Inspired Amenities, Inside and Out
It is perhaps 3 Acres’ upscale personal services and seemingly endless offering of indoor and outdoor amenities — spread throughout an incredible 70,000 square feet of space across multiple levels — that truly sets this building apart.
3 Acres’ elegant, attended lobby is bordered on both sides by an array of lounge, amenity, and workspaces that run the full two-block width of the building and open to a second level brimming with additional social spaces. These include a state-of-the-art fitness center, infrared saunas, conference room, work pods, a chef’s table with demonstration kitchen, multi-sport simulator and screening room, resident lounge with a saltwater aquarium, and a game room with a mini bowling alley, pinball, ping pong and arcade games. On-site musical entertainment emanates from a Steinway Spirio digital grand piano in one of the lounge spaces that self-plays pieces from a vast library of musical content, as well as simulcasts live performances from great pianists around world.
Extensive outdoor space includes a rooftop terrace, and a pool with jacuzzi and sundeck, cabanas, and loungers. Three distinctive outdoor courtyards feature barbecues and private dining areas, lounge seating and firepits, outdoor Yoga, bocce, chess, shuffleboard, and ping pong; a community garden, Zen area, and a dog run.
