Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) January 18, 2008
50 Columbus is more than 75% leased as renters are quickly snapping up the new luxury rental residences located in the heart of Jersey City, N.J.'s vibrant downtown district.
More than 300 upscale residences have already been rented in the striking 36-story residential tower which features 400 premium homes and an elaborate amenity offering adjacent to the recently-renovated Grove Street PATH Station.
The impressive leasing milestone was accomplished less than four months after 50 Columbus opened to the public, according to Applied Development Company and Panepinto Properties, the joint venture partners developing the building.
In addition, more than 200 residents have already moved in.
"We were confident that 50 Columbus would appeal to sophisticated, discerning professionals seeking luxury high-rise living and resort-like amenities amidst the exciting ambiance of Jersey City," notes David Barry, President of Applied Development Company. "The extraordinary pace of leasing activity certainly validates that. It also underscores the tremendous value offered here."
Designed by world-renowned architect Costas Kondylis, with interiors by celebrated designer Andres Escobar, the building is notable for a soaring, 24-hour-attended lobby with 19-foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass, a professional concierge and a unique water feature.
"Residents also enjoy an upscale, hotel-like recreational experience stemming from a full-floor amenities space that includes a lounge, theater/screening room, card and billiard rooms, children's play area and business center," points out Stephanie Panepinto, a principal of Panepinto Properties.
"A private landscaped rooftop deck features a swimming pool, cabanas, BBQ area and tennis court. In addition, the on-site Club H Fitness Center and Spa offers state-of-the-art fitness equipment, a Juice Bar with an expansive menu, nutritional advisors and Personal Trainers. There's also the convenience of an enclosed parking garage."
A wide mix of elegantly-designed floor plans is available at 50 Columbus, ranging from studios to three-bedroom residences - including eight lavish duplex townhomes -- at monthly rents starting at $1,825. The homes enjoy an abundance of natural light, as well as spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor.
Gourmet kitchens offer sleek Euro-style cabinets with Richelieu hardware in brushed nickel, antique pearl quartz countertops and Whirlpool and GE appliances. Lavish bathrooms feature walnut vanities with Carrera marble vanity tops, ceramic tile floors, white running bond ceramic tile walls and polished chrome fixtures. All homes have wood flooring in living areas and carpeted bedrooms.
