JERSEY CITY, NJ – Developers Alpine Residential and FieldsGrade announced today The Hazel, the new luxury rentals in Jersey City’s historic Bergen-Lafayette, has leased 65% of its 114 upscale apartment homes.
The impressive milestone is a true testament to the sophisticated urban lifestyle offered at the contemporary six-story building which features a mix of generously-sized and well-appointed studio to two-bedroom residences, a full suite of socially-infused indoor and outdoor amenities and a desirable location in a Jersey City neighborhood that’s gained acclaim for its culture, dining, entertainment and more.

Gourmet kitchens boast stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, soft-close cabinetry, full-height backsplashes, and under-cabinet lighting, while spa-like baths are lavishly appointed. Select residences offer a bonus den for added living space and flexibility.
Spurring high rental velocity at The Hazel is the opportunity to see its well-rounded lifestyle on full display with the recent unveiling of its package of forward-thinking, resort-inspired amenities. The professionally-decorated communal spaces radiate a chic and trendy feel that’s on par with fashionable resort destinations and designer five-star hotels.

The full-service resident experience is further enhanced by on-site Concierge, a package room, bike storage, covered parking with electric car charging stations, onsite electric scooters, and ground floor retail space.
An exciting new amenity at The Hazel is TULU, an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products. This will be available specifically to Hazel residents and will also come with some fun giveaways and perks for first time users.
“It’s no secret amenities play a significant role in a renter’s decision in Jersey City’s highly competitive apartment market,” said Bill Rosato, Managing Partner of Alpine Residential.
“The development group has deep roots in Bergen-Lafayette and we utilized experience and extensive market research to create an amenity package that not only provides the exact kind of leisure time today’s renter expects, but also creates a stylish and inviting atmosphere that strongly encourages social interaction. And we’re not done yet. We will debut our rooftop terrace with barbecues and mist station shortly.”
Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture, The Hazel features a distinctive façade comprised of gray and green brick punctuated by large floor-to-ceiling windows as a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage. Located at 89 Monitor Street, the building is a signature addition to a dynamic neighborhood setting known for its eclectic art, dining, and nightlife scene and accessibility to Liberty State Park, Downtown Jersey City, and Manhattan.
Lying just west of Downtown Jersey City, Bergen-Lafayette is considered by many as a hidden gem for its open green spaces, small-town neighborhood charm and dynamic lifestyle options. The Hazel lies in the heart of this cherished neighborhood and is just a few blocks from Communipaw Avenue, the vibrant business corridor that offers hip and authentic bars, eateries, shops, and everyday conveniences. Local favorites include The Grind Shop, a specialty coffee shop; the popular Pacific Pizza, Harry’s Daughter Gastro Pub, Café Lafayette, Nurish, the Brooklyn-based healthy eatery crossing the Hudson River to open its second location in Bergen-Lafayette, and more.
Convenient access to Downtown Jersey has never been easier thanks to the opening of the Liberty State Park Bridge. This extension of Jersey Avenue was a landmark moment for Bergen-Lafayette residents who now enjoy greater connectivity to Jersey City’s downtown district, complete with bike lanes and sidewalks. The new scenic route through the park strengthens existing means of connecting neighborhoods, including the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Liberty Park Station, which is just steps from The Hazel, while nearby Route 78 provides a pathway to the Holland Tunnel, as well as points west.
For outdoor recreation, Liberty State Park offers a green oasis in the middle of the metropolis with more than 1,200 acres of open space, a two-mile waterfront promenade, an outdoor performance area, and a celebrated restaurant with sweeping views of the Hudson River, Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty. The park also offers a full-service marina, ferry service to Manhattan, charter boat excursions and maritime sightseeing tours. Also anchoring the neighborhood is the Liberty Science Center with its ever-evolving interactive museum experience and the largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in the Western Hemisphere.
The Hazel is managed by the developer’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.
