Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop Launches 377-Unit Soho Lofts Rental Community

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop recently joined developer Manhattan Building Company to celebrate the launch of leasing for the newest phase of the SoHo West (South of Hoboken, West of New York City) community, an emerging neighborhood mixing luxury residences with shops and retail on the border of Jersey City and Hoboken.

Mayor Fulop cut a ceremonial ribbon to signify the public opening of Soho Lofts, a new collection of 377 luxury apartments and state-of-the-art, resort-like amenities located at 273 16th Street . The industrial-inspired community offers one-, two-, three and four-bedroom apartments, as well as a limited number of private townhome rentals.  Monthly rents begin from the $2,000s, with initial occupancy this month.

City Homes and Gardens, which is directing the building’s leasing and marketing program, has debuted Soho Lofts from an onsite leasing office with fully-furnished models merchandised by renowned interior designer Kim Depole.

“The initial phase of SoHo West, the Cast Iron Lofts Collection, put this neighborhood on the map and is now home to more than 800 residents,” says Louis Mont, COO of Hoboken-based Manhattan Building Company. “We’re incredibly excited to move forward in further establishing the community with the launch of Soho Lofts, which will introduce an even higher level of urban luxury with condo-style interior finishes, cutting-edge and modern indoor and outdoor amenities combined with a chic, contemporary lifestyle.”

Soho Lofts consists of separate 14-story and 21-story buildings connected by a five-story podium which houses a soaring lobby, lavish amenity center and enclosed parking garage.

Loft-style homes range from 622 square-feet to over 3,397 square-feet and boast designer interior elements including high ten-foot ceilings, expansive windows to bathe apartments in natural light, exposed duct work, European white oak flooring, luxury kitchens with designer cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and lavish bathrooms with glass enclosed showers and maple vanities.  Many apartments also offer magnificent views of the New York City and downtown Jersey City skyline.

“The luxury and comfort found inside these residences are what separates Soho Lofts from the competition,” says Audrey Spina, Director of Leasing.  “These apartments are larger than those found in rental buildings along the Jersey City and Hoboken waterfront, and in areas like Brooklyn, at a price point that offers considerable consumer value.”

No stone has been left unturned when it comes to amenities at Soho Lofts which offers a resort lifestyle inside and out.  The community boasts a 24-hour concierge and attended valet parking, demonstration kitchen and private party room, arcade lounge, media room, tech lounge, private conference rooms, children’s playroom, state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor/outdoor yoga room, ten-person sauna and dog grooming suite.   A sprawling outdoor amenity deck features an Infinity edge pool with aqua jets and private poolside cabanas, outdoor showers, fireside seating, Movie Theater, hammock area, Zen garden, resident event pavilion, gas grills and oversized dog run and children’s playground.

Soho Lofts location provides easy access to some of New Jersey’s most dynamic urban centers.  Within minutes, residents can enjoy all that Hoboken and downtown Jersey City have to offer.  Complimentary daily shuttle service is provided to nearby PATH stations and NY Waterway ferry terminals.  The building is also convenient to the New Jersey Turnpike extension for an easy commute into north and central New Jersey.

Manhattan Building Company’s overall SoHo West neighborhood has quickly transformed the northern corridor of Jersey Avenue into a vibrant residential and retail destination. The completed Cast Iron Lofts Collection includes 387 apartments and 20,000 square-feet of retail space occupied by 8 Springs Studio, a Pilates and Yoga studio; Viaquenti Academy, a bilingual pre-school; Brewshot, a coffee shop/bar restaurant that has several other locations in Jersey City and NYC; and The Art House, a non-profit that will include a 99-seat black box theatre.
