Many Americans are fleeing urban centers amid the financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unable to afford rent. Residents from New York City have found refuge in more affordable housing just across the river in Hudson County.
Hartz Mountain Industries, developer of Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken, said the first residential tower of its Hamilton Cove development, which began leasing in March, has reached 70 percent occupancy even amid the pandemic.
More leasing on the way
Last week, Hartz Mountain began leasing in Tower C at Hamilton Cove, the last of its three residential towers that comprise the newest residential complex in Lincoln Harbor.
On the corner of 19th Street and Harbor Boulevard near the Hudson River waterfront, Tower C is composed of 177 units ranging from studio to three-bedroom apartments. The building will have a lobby concierge and add two amenity lounges.
Rent starts from $2,050 for studios; $2,175 for one bedrooms; $3,305 for two-bedrooms; and $5,770 for three bedrooms.
“The launch of Tower C is a testament to the work our team has put into delivering the exceptional offering that is Hamilton Cove,” said Gus Milano, president and COO of Hartz Mountain Industries. “In this pandemic, the building location appeals to those looking for thoughtfully-designed residences in a calm environment with a city lifestyle just across the Hudson River.”
Local architecture firm Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects designed the property’s three towers, ranging from 12 to 15-stories with 573 units. Designed to incorporate the beauty of the waterfront along the Gold Coast, residences feature interiors furnished by design firm CetraRuddy.
Greystar is responsible for management, with leasing and marketing handled by The Marketing Directors. For more information, visit www.hamiltoncoveapts.com.
The complex is making use of green energy.
Partially powered by clean and renewable energy, Hamilton Cove features an array of solar panels that will produce approximately 300,000-kilowatt hours of electricity on an annual basis.
The panels are on the roofs all three towers. The power generated by the panels will assist in powering elevators, common areas, and other parts of the complex.
According to Hartz Mountain, this is the first luxury high-rise project on the Gold Coast with a solar array.
Hartz Mountain has almost 50 megawatts of solar power across the state. This is the first serving one of its multi-family projects.
