HARRISON, N.J., Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Before 221 Bergen in Harrison opened its doors to its first residents, 25 percent of the apartments were already leased, according to Coldwell Banker New Homes. The boutique rental building, which opened on November 1, is anticipated to be 50 percent leased by mid-December.
"We're leasing quickly because it's a good fit for young professionals who want easy access to New York City, and a better value than can be found in Manhattan, Hoboken and Jersey City," said David Schoner, Vice President, CB New Homes. "We're also attracting renters who want lifestyle amenities but don't want to have to pay extra for them."
Other rental properties in Harrison are charging monthly fees for lifestyle amenities, according to Schoner. The amenities at 221 Bergen are provided at no additional monthly cost and include a Residents' Lounge with its own Starbucks machine, Rooftop Terrace for social gatherings, and 24-hour Fitness Center with Life Fitness equipment. The Yoga Room has a Fitness On Demand kiosk with 140 pre-recorded classes.
Prospective renters may choose from one- and two-bedroom apartments, each with a washer and dryer. Residences include luxury features such as 9-foot ceilings, recessed and pendant lighting in the kitchen, ceramic tile in the bathrooms and carpet in the bedrooms. Several home designs feature walk-in closets. The two-bedroom apartments are great for roommates, because they feature "split bedrooms" (no shared walls) for additional privacy. Elevators are on-site for added convenience. Private garages, surface parking, and freestanding storage units are available.
221 Bergen utilizes the ButterflyMX™ secure entry system, which monitors visitors and provides photo and time stamp tracking and video messaging. It allows residents to provide virtual keys to delivery people, contractors, maids and others, that activate and expire at pre-designated times. It's a state-of-the-art system that residents access via their smartphones and devices. 221 Bergen managers also can send building-wide alerts to residents via the system.
Monthly rentals start at $1,840. 221 Bergen is open seven days-per-week and by appointment. Call (862) 231-6190 or visit http://www.221bergen.com.
