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.
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.
In keeping up with the Joneses (and Journal Squareds and Ellipses), 485 Marin will have a suite of amenities including a gym, private dining room, screening room, and attended lobby. The building also features a lounge that connects to an amenity deck with a swimming pool, sunbathing and grilling areas, and an outdoor shower. KRE is also developing a park neighboring the rental site.
