Rental Building News and Offers

Jersey City, NJ - New high-rise rental Journal Squared made its debut about six weeks ago and at 53 stories, it's one of the taller developments transforming the historic Journal Square neighborhood, but renters are after more than just the views. Spacious residences, open floor plans and an alluring amenity package are reeling them in, and we're taking a closer look at the newly released photos of the exciting rental project just across the Hudson.
Kushner Real Estate Group and National Real Estate Advisors are the developers, and architecture firms HWKN & Handel designed the 53-story building - the first of three towers to be built for the Journal Squared development. The others, one will rise to 60 floors and the other to 70, will create a residential complex of more than 1,800 apartments.

Building critic Carter Horsley calls the project "one of the nation’s most striking residential high-rise complexes," and inside is just as impressive. Leasing recently launched for the studio to 3-bedroom apartments and more than 175 have already been signed. Limited time launch pricing is currently in effect, offering 1 month free on a 13-month lease or 2 months free on a 26-month lease.

Interiors are designed by Christopher Stevens, who has styled private homes across the East Coast, and feature a modern, sophisticated selection of materials and furnishings. Many homes have views of the Manhattan skyline with features like hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, central air and in-home washers/dryers.

Apartments are available in studio to 3-bedroom layouts.
Journal Squared has more than 10,000 square feet of amenities, also designed by Christopher Stevens, and the new photography gives us a closer look at everything from the double-height lobby to the impressive 53-story observatory.

While not only about the views, they are certainly a perk of living here. The Sky Lounge, located atop the building, is the perfect place to take-in or show-off panoramic views of the New York City skyline. The space features a retractable movie screen and stadium seating, and large tables for formal dinners or casual gatherings.

The building has a tastefully designed double-height lobby with paneled walls, custom light fixtures and seating, featuring 24-hour concierge and also a light-filled lounge for residents. Journal Squared's spacious apartments with up to three bedrooms have more than enough space for families, but there is also a colorful children's playroom to entertain the little ones.

On the 8th floor is Club JSQ, a full floor of amenities designed for work and play. It has a library ideal for those who work from home, areas to lounge or be productive, and there is also free WiFi and plenty of outlets. And as a truly unique feature, the space opens to a sun terrace with an outdoor swimming pool.
