What's the parking situation.. They charge residents, free for residents, etc. Lived here 14 years and it was pretty easy until the hospital converted and 10th street got built up.. It will look like "SoHo" Jersey City (between 14 and 18 Street)..

They were required a green space and made one. They have their own dog run too.

485 Marin brings rentals from $2,300/month to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park

https://ny.curbed.com/2018/6/5/1742971 ... apartments-for-rent"}"> 2 comments

The project shares a developer and architect with Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared

By

The team behind Jersey City’s massive Journal Squared project launched their next rental west of the Hudson River today. The development, called 485 Marin, brings 397 rentals to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park, a neighborhood known more for its tree-lined streets and Victorian architecture than swanky rental buildings.

Architect Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) designed an 18-story brick-clad building for the site at the corner of Marin Boulevard and 8th Street and opposite the Newport Centre shopping mall. The building’s distinctive feature, its inward-facing stepped design, is intended to “create a visual corridor for the existing residents of the area,” according to a press release by developer KRE Group.

Fully agreed on the building being horrific in terms of look and styling. Location is pretty crappy, but it does have close proximity to Hamilton Park, and there are a handful of good restaurants in that area, plus the HP's farmer market options. They are also perfectly positioned with regards to the future development of the MetroVest Plaza area, where ~15 towers will go up, along with small parks, and many amenities.

The location next to a fire station will likely get annoying for residents, though.

It's the other Kushner though (same as Journal Squared). Wouldn't be fair to hold the rest of his family's behavior against him/the company.

But it is ugly.

Building is very ugly looking...it will be first of several projects on that stretch of Marin to be redeveloped. Firehouse will be gone in a few years, there are talks of extending 7th street out to Marin which has its own issues. Only thing staying is the Robert Clemente baseball field.

As for the price of a studio...who knows. There will be lots of inventory coming online in the next few months, that building is alone on its own in the area. One pro is that its a quick walk through the mall to Newport Path.

Just wish it wasnt A.) build by a Kushner and B.) wasnt so ugly.

the .com this is bizarre as well.

Agreed and understood. Like I said, more power to them if they can get it. I have to assume they know the market better than I do as to what renters are willing to put out. Said renters aren't me, cause I found a steal!

And also agree with the others that the building is hideous. And what's with putting .com on your building name? Last I checked the building isn't a website, it's an actual physical place. Facing Marin is awful, but backing up to more or less to HP will probably be their selling point.

$2,300 / studio may sound bonkers to some, but lots of people are already paying that, or very similar, in other buildings. I have yet to see he market slowing down, and rents continue to rise. There are at least two very large new buildings going up in my vicinity, and I expect those rents to continue the same trend.

Good luck indeed. It may turn out $2300 for a studio with 2 months free rent or something like that. LeFric building on 10th is getting finished, there are more for rent signs and the rental market in NYC has peaked.

485 Marin brings rentals from $2,300/month to Jersey City’s Hamilton Park

The apartments will start at $2,300 for a studio and range to three-bedrooms asking upwards of $5,750. Christopher Stevens designed the building’s interiors, which include kitchens with white quartz countertops, high-gloss gray cabinets, Grohe fixtures, and Whirpool appliances as well as bathrooms with quartz countertops and brushed nickel fixtures by Kohler. Every apartment comes with Whirlpool washer/dryer sets and many of the apartments have terraces.

Yeah... stc4blues was exceedingly kind with that description. The art deco facade of The Beacon is magnitudes nicer than this project.

As for whether or not these high rises are filling up, almost every new building coming onto the market fills up within a few months. I am no longer surprised by what the local market bears.


Rents have been falling in Manhattan this will probably happen in JC as well.

my point is that imo plenty of the bland towers going up in jersey city are ugly too. at least, this ugly building breaks the mold a bit. and as i said, it is MY OPINION. some may find the towers as well as 485 marin exciting and uplifting.Quote:

Talk about cutting the nose to spite the face. Favoring an ugly building over a traditional (or, boring) one seems like an odd stand.

I am with the others. I have watched this building go up and it always struck me as oddly out of place: too large for its location, aesthetically it clashes with its surrounding, and the design itself is not at all visually pleasant. Complete and total FAIL.

I wish this was never built. It's ugly. Will every tenant get free parking? If not, our Hamilton Park streets are doomed.


According to the article, there will be parking available on premises, so that makes residents ineligible for street parking permits. If people start parking on the streets around Hamilton Park, just ask the PA to make it a point to come around to ticket vehicles. We had that issue around the PAD area and it got fixed real quick after a few weeks of parking enforcement. They come around every day (twice in the morning, and at least once or twice in the afternoon) and there is hardly any violators nowadays, as nobody wants to come back to a vehicle ticketed for zone parking violations.
