Welcome to State o' the Garden State, a Curbed feature in which we explore the new developments in New Jersey neighborhoods across the Hudson from Manhattan. Have a new development you'd like us to consider? Let us know via the tipline.
Hoboken may conjure images of Lincoln Tunnel traffic and that bakery of the mouthy guy with the TLC show, but there's more stuff there than just that. Mainly more residential developments, as people continue to push out from Manhattan. Enter Park + Garden, the new 212-rental building developed by Bijou Properties that could very easily be mistaken for a Boaz Gilad project in Brooklyn, except for the development's giant outdoor pool and views of the Manhattan skyline. For the building's abundance of amenities, rents don't come all that cheap: one-bedrooms start at $3,250, two-bedrooms at $4,100, and three-bedrooms at $5,900. All apartments come with bamboo flooring and kitchens with granite countertops and Energy Star stainless steel appliances.
The Marchetto Higgins Stieve-designed building is LEED Gold certified and consists of two 12-story towers that rise from a shared base. In addition to the swimming pool, the building has enclosed parking, ground-floor retail, an attended lobby, gyms, club rooms, courtyards, a landscaped terrace, bike storage, laundry facilities, and rec room that can also be used as a basketball court.
