Atlas, a new offering of upscale rental homes and five-star amenities, has quickly become somewhat of an icon in Jersey City, NJ’s Bergen-Lafayette, the re-energized neighborhood bordering Liberty State Park.

Designed by MHS Architecture, the 24-story property has become a testament to the high appeal of Bergen-Lafayette, a complete lifestyle neighborhood that features modern homes, desired retailers and a great location.  More than 50% of the 169 upscale homes at Atlas have been leased just months after its official opening earlier this year, clear evidence of the attractiveness of one of Jersey City’s residential treasures.

The building represents a collaboration between Alpine Residential and Fields Grade, known for their commitment to enriching Bergen-Lafayette with new residential buildings and supportive street-level retail space. Its leasing program and management is handled by Alpine’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.

Located 270 Johnston Avenue,  Atlas lies in a neighborhood that has been celebrated for its vibrant art scene, walkability, and numerous restaurants, bars, shops, and parks.   Inside the building, the development partners have boosted the sense of liveliness residents enjoy with the debut of a full suite of modern amenities.

The thoughtful package of amenities is highlighted by a top-floor that features a Sky Lounge, demonstration kitchen and game room – all with incredible New York City views.  Health conscience residents greatly appreciate the state-of-the-art fitness facility equipped with Cross-Fit and cardio machines, while remote and hybrid workers make great use of the building’s co-working spaces with private offices.  There’s also conveniences that include concierge service, bike storage, and an enclosed parking garage.  Another unique amenity at Atlas is TULU, an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products.

Outside, Atlas offers a roof deck featuring a pool, grilling stations and al fresco dining areas.  There is also ground-level retail space that will house Eggs Up, a bagel cafe.

With interiors by GRT Architecture, Atlas draws inspiration from the neighborhood's post-industrial roots while engaging with the Jersey City waterfront and the New York City skyline.  The collection of residences blends luxury and functionality. Oversized windows with complimentary treatments frame stunning views, while luxury plank flooring, custom modular closets, in-home washer and dryer, remote thermostats, and smart lock entry doors enhance the living experience. Kitchens feature Quartz countertops, full-height tiled backsplashes, and stainless-steel Energy Star® appliances. Well-appointed baths are adorned with Quartz countertops, full-height tiled showers and tubs and Kohler fixtures.  Select homes have double vanities.

Atlas features well-appointed studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences.  Many homes feature private balconies that extend the living spaces outdoors while maximizing uninterrupted views of the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Harbor, Liberty State Park, and the Manhattan skyline. 

Monthly rents start at $2,679 with limited-time grand opening incentives of up to two months free on select homes. 

Atlas seamlessly integrates into Jersey City's cultural fabric by showcasing a thoughtfully curated collection of artwork throughout the property, exclusively created by local Jersey City artists. This diverse compilation celebrates the immigrant experience in contemporary American art. On the 24th floor, these artistic expressions beautifully complement the breathtaking Hudson River views, creating a visual masterpiece for residents to enjoy.
