Former ‘Bergen Record’ HQ and Largest Residential Redevelopment in Hackensack Opens for Leasing

The second and final phase of Hackensack’s largest residential redevelopment is complete with the Second Edition of Print House open for leasing. The addition of 425 luxury homes brings the campus total to 696 units – with the Second Edition adding an additional 150,000 sq. ft of amenity space that includes soon to be open courtyards, an amphitheater, and outdoor seating along the riverfront. Print House also offers 40,000 sq. ft. of street-level mixed-use retail – current tenants include Hackensack Meridian Health medical clinic, Starbucks, Jersey Mike’s, Blue Foundry Bank, and – soon – Lidl, the international grocery.

Print House, developed in a partnership between Russo Development and The Hampshire Companies, sits on the former headquarters of The Bergen Record along the banks of the Hackensack River. The First Phase of Print House was fully leased in under four months and Phase Two is already on pace to match or exceed that.

The Second Edition’s amenities include a riverfront pool, outdoor lounge areas, and a standalone two-story resident clubhouse, filled with entertainment, lounge and work from home spaces. Print House residents will have access to both phase’s diversified amenity offerings.

“Adding the final residential component to Print House is a major milestone for us and our partners at Hampshire. Print House is exceeding all expectations in Hackensack and provides our residents a community with our large campus, unique apartment styles and incredible amenity offerings plus the added convenience of our food and service retail tenants,” said Adam Pasternack from Russo Development. “We are very appreciative of the City of Hackensack’s partnership and collaboration to see this project through with us to deliver this multifaceted mixed use residential offering. We are also thrilled to give our residents and the local community the convenience of dynamic on-site retail, including the new addition of Lidl, coming in 2025.”

Phase Two availability includes one and two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 703 – 1,198 sq ft. Residents also enjoy access to private parking, a rooftop terrace with views of New York City, an on-site concierge, and a plentiful line up of curated resident events and activations monthly.

“For over 100 years, Hackensack has played a central role in our family’s story,” said James E. Hanson II, president & CEO of The Hampshire Companies. “This latest milestone brings us closer to realizing our full vision for a city that is so near and dear to our family and business. We thank our project partners for their continued collaboration, and we look forward to welcoming our future residents to the Second Edition.”

Print House is located directly across the street from New Jersey Transit’s Hackensack Bus Terminal offering express 30-minute service to New York City.

The remaining 11,204 sq. ft. of retail space offered through NAI James E. Hanson continues to see strong demand. The 19-acre site is also an Opportunity Zone, a program designed to jumpstart economic growth launched by the Federal Government in 2017.

“Over the last few years, we have and will continue to deliver on what is truly a distinctive property capturing the vision the City of Hackensack to revitalize the downtown area – we are that much closer to becoming the centerpiece of the City’s Waterfront District,” added Adam Pasternack from Russo Development.
