KRE Group announced the grand opening of 485 Marin Boulevard, the newest and largest 18-story rental building in Jersey City’s idyllic Hamilton Park neighborhood. Situated at the front door to Hamilton Park, a residential destination known for its tree-lined streets and rows of Victorian brownstones, the new building brings 397 apartments to the area, which are 70% leased.
485 Marin is KRE Group’s latest collaboration with the architectural firm Hollwich Kushner and interior designer Christopher Stevens. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is the architect of record. KRE Group also debuted a new public park located directly behind 485 Marin, providing abundant green space for residents and their neighbors to enjoy. Designed by Melillo & Bauer Associates and named Marin Green, the park spans more than an acre and includes a grassy lawn, café-style seating and a children’s play area, along with a dog park.
To celebrate the grand opening of 485 Marin, a ceremonial ribbon cutting was held September 13, 2018, which was attended by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop. “This is a unique rental development that will be home to Jersey City’s newest public park, Marin Green,” said Mayor Fulop. “We continue to strive to meet the needs of Jersey City’s neighborhoods by working with developers to offer various options for new and current residents as we look to improve communities with new amenities such as parks, retail space and affordable housing.”
Apartments start on the fifth floor and range from spacious studios to three-bedroom residences, with many offering private terraces. Interior designer Christopher Stevens, who has styled private homes across the East Coast, crafted the interiors of the residences, which feature open floor plans, rustic oak-style wood flooring, and large picture windows that overlook the surrounding neighborhood.
Kitchens are outfitted with white quartz stone countertops, high-gloss grey cabinets, Grohe fixtures and a complete package of Whirlpool appliances. Bathrooms feature quartz countertops, brushed-nickel Kohler fixtures and tiled floors. Additionally, all residences include laundry closets with Whirlpool washer/dryer sets.
To further enhance the residential experience, 485 Marin offers an outstanding amenity and service package. In addition to a state-of-the-art fitness center, private dining room, screening room, and attended lobby, the building features a 5th-floor lounge that opens onto an amenity deck with a swimming pool, sunbathing areas, grilling stations and outdoor showers.
Additionally, 485 Marin is the first and only building in Hamilton Park to offer its residents access to the app-based service Hello Alfred, a platform that combines sophisticated software with highly trained “Alfred” Home Managers to handle an extensive suite of services, including digital move-in coordination, errand assistance, in-home package delivery and more. KRE Group is the exclusive provider of Hello Alfred in Jersey City.
The Marketing Directors is the exclusive leasing and marketing agent for 485 Marin. Pricing for available residences begins at $2,435 for a studio (net effective rent based on one month free with a 13-month lease).
