Developers Alpine Residential and FieldsGrade have announced The Hazel, the new luxury rentals in Jersey City’s historic Bergen-Lafayette, has leased 65% of its 114 upscale apartment homes.   The development team had tapped Fogarty Finger Architecture to design the six-story building which is a signature addition to a dynamic neighborhood setting known for its eclectic art, dining, and nightlife scene and accessibility to Liberty State Park, Downtown Jersey City, and Manhattan.

The impressive milestone is a true testament to the sophisticated urban lifestyle offered at the contemporary building which features a distinctive façade comprised of gray and green brick punctuated by large floor-to-ceiling windows as a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage.

The Hazel features a mix of generously-sized and well-appointed studio to two-bedroom residences, a full suite of socially-infused indoor and outdoor amenities. The Marketing Directors serve as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

Homes at The Hazel are outfitted with upscale finishes and appointments, including nine-foot-plus ceilings, luxury plank flooring, custom modular closets, complimentary window treatments, in-home washer and dryer and smart lock entry.   Gourmet kitchens boast stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, soft-close cabinetry, full-height backsplashes, and under-cabinet lighting, while spa-like baths are lavishly appointed.  Select residences offer a bonus den for added living space and flexibility.

Spurring high rental velocity at The Hazel is the opportunity to see its well-rounded lifestyle on full display with the recent unveiling of its package of forward-thinking, resort-inspired amenities. The professionally-decorated communal spaces radiate a chic and trendy feel that’s on par with fashionable resort destinations and designer five-star hotels.  Found within the building are a Sky Lounge with New York City views, outdoor courtyards, co-working space, library with fireplace, state-of-the-art fitness center, demonstration kitchen and an amenity guest suite.  The full-service resident experience is further enhanced by on-site Concierge, a package room, bike storage, covered parking with electric car charging stations, onsite electric scooters, and ground floor retail space. 

An exciting new amenity at The Hazel is TULU, an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products. This will be available specifically to Hazel residents and will also come with some fun giveaways and perks for first time users.

Located at 89 Monitor Street  just west of Downtown Jersey City, Bergen-Lafayette is considered by many as a hidden gem for its open green spaces, small-town neighborhood charm and dynamic lifestyle options.  The Hazel lies in the heart of this cherished neighborhood and is just a few blocks from Communipaw Avenue, the vibrant business corridor that offers hip and authentic bars, eateries, shops, and everyday conveniences.  Local favorites include The Grind Shop, a specialty coffee shop; the popular Pacific Pizza, Harry’s Daughter Gastro Pub, Café Lafayette, Nurish, the Brooklyn-based healthy eatery crossing the Hudson River to open its second location in Bergen-Lafayette, and more. 

Convenient access to Downtown Jersey has never been easier thanks to the opening of the Liberty State Park Bridge.  This extension of Jersey Avenue was a landmark moment for Bergen-Lafayette residents who now enjoy greater connectivity to Jersey City’s downtown district, complete with bike lanes and sidewalks.  The new scenic route through the park strengthens existing means of connecting neighborhoods, including the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Liberty Park Station, which is just steps from The Hazel, while nearby Route 78 provides a pathway to the Holland Tunnel, as well as points west.  

The Hazel is managed by the developer’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.
