Response to Amenity-Rich Property Across from PATH Station Spotlights Harrison, NJ as a Rising Residential Hot Spot
HARRISON, NJ, July 26, 2023 – Harrison, NJ is rapidly becoming a top-choice destination for residents seeking a perfect blend of urban energy, convenience and value. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the Hudson County city’s Riverbend District across from the PATH Station where The Wyldes opens this week to the public and welcomes its first residents with more than 100 of its 399 new luxury apartments already pre-leased.
The robust pre-opening velocity at The Wyldes is illuminating a discernible shift in the rental landscape, particularly in Jersey City where residents are looking to escape the mounting pressures of soaring rental costs and are finding comparable living spaces and amenities and considerably better value in Harrison – all just one 10-minute PATH stop from Journal Square.
“We are thrilled to witness the incredible demand and enthusiasm for The Wyldes,” said Dan Cocoziello, Principal and COO of Advance Realty Investors, the visionary developer behind The Riverbend District’s seamless fusion of contemporary residential properties, including Steel Works and Cobalt Lofts, intertwined with scenic parks along the banks of the Passaic River. “The arrival of The Wyldes marks a significant milestone, drawing in new residents and enriching the neighborhood with an expanded selection of residential choices and open spaces.”
The Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for The Wyldes, has launched the property’s leasing program from an on-site leasing office at 1100 South 5th Street where prospective residents can experience a private journey through the property’s furnished model homes and almost 70,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities.
A collection of well-appointed studios, one- and two-bedroom homes is priced from the mid-$2,000s and is being offered with Grand Opening incentives that include up to two months free rent. Immediate occupancy is available.
“Pre-leasing more than 100 residences at The Wyldes prior to opening without the benefit of touring prospects through finished spaces sends a powerful message to the marketplace that Harrison, and in particular the Riverbend District, has emerged from the shadows of Jersey City and firmly captured the attention of today’s renter,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. “The same can be said of the brokerage community which more and more is bringing clients to Harrison, something we didn’t see in years past.”
Apartments Designed to Spread Out
With select loft homes offering 13’ ceiling heights and homes with oversized windows maximizing natural light, and with many providing balconies or expansive terraces, the spacious apartments at The Wyldes will allow residents to spread out and enjoy their surroundings while fully embracing the benefits of indoor-outdoor living.

In the Heart of the Action
Once a manufacturing powerhouse known as The Beehive of Industry, Harrison has been reborn as a dynamic, walkable community teeming with new lifestyle conveniences and services. Anchored by the PATH Station with service to Jersey City, Hoboken, Lower Manhattan -- just a 20-minute commute away -- and Newark Penn Station, the town has attracted a growing resident base, particularly young professionals who also appreciate its value when compared to neighboring New Jersey Gold Coast locations.
