The 16-Story Building Recently Netted 60 Leases in 14 Days Alone
JERSEY CITY, NJ, May, 2024 – Overlook Flats’ elevated site in the heart of Jersey City’s Journal Square is the perfect metaphor for its rise to the top of this neighborhood’s sizzling rental market.  

The striking 16-story building has hit the notable mark of 75% leased after recording a staggering 60 leases over a recent two-week period alone, according to developer Milton Fantin and the Fantin companies (Urban Property Developers and Urban Property Managers). 

The remarkable achievement is indicative of Journal Square’s dramatic ascent as the region’s most prominent residential destination, one that’s attracting an ever-increasing number of residents from the New York City side of the Hudson River.    The recent leasing activity at Overlook Flats supports the trend of residents flocking west to the fashionable Journal Square neighborhood, with nearly 50% of the latest residents at Overlook Flats formerly having lived in New York City or Queens.
