Newport, Jersey City, one of the largest and most successful mixed-use waterfront communities in the country, has opened a brand-new, state-of-the-art leasing gallery led the LeFrak Organization and Newport Associates Development Company. The sales gallery occupies 4,000 SF at 121 Town Square Place in Newport, and is designed with high-tech features which will help lease the sought-after homes in the neighborhood. High-tech aspects include interactive touch-screen presentation walls, iPad- controlled display walls, and a highly-detailed, interactive 3-D model of the community. Centrally located, the gallery provides a sense of the best Newport has to offer, such as the adjacent Newport PATH station, Hudson River waterfront walkway, and signature waterfront restaurant Battello.
“Newport is a comprehensive neighborhood that offers a high-quality, well-rounded lifestyle in a beautiful waterfront location. This exceptional new leasing gallery experience brings that idea to life and will continue to evolve alongside the neighborhood,” said Richard Wernick, Managing Director of Residential Leasing for Newport.
Since creating the Newport neighborhood in the 1980s, the LeFrak Organization has been transforming and developing the district into what has become one of the most dynamic residential and commercial areas in the country. Totaling 5,500 homes, the residential offering at Newport brings luxurious design within a carefully-planned neighborhood that provides a comprehensive lifestyle and ready access to Manhattan. The neighborhood’s highly-successful residential developments have all leased in record time, signifying the unbelievable demand for housing in the area. In 2017, LeFrak leased the most expensive home in Jersey City history, a penthouse at their signature Newport development, Ellipse, which leased fully in less than one year. The neighborhood’s eight state-of-the-art office towers provide more than six million square feet of office space to major employers including JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Fidelity Investments, L’Oreal, Forbes, and Tory Burch, and more than 25,000 employees.
“Newport is continually growing and evolving as more residents and employers realize how great a place it is to live and work,” added Wernick. “The addition of this amazing new leasing gallery reflects the demand to live in this waterfront community and will help us provide the best possible experience to future residents.”
