With the cut of a ceremonial ribbon, Jersey City officials, business leaders and other dignitaries marked the completion of The Hazel, a new luxury rental building that has delivered a high-end residential lifestyle to the City’s trendy Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood.

With architecture by Fogarty Finger, The Hazel features a distinctive pale gray brick façade accented by glazed artisanal green brick panels. Interplayed with large floor-to-ceiling windows designed as a nod to the neighborhood’s industrial heritage, the panels create an engaging pattern with the street.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop joined development principals from Alpine Residential and Fields Grade for the ceremony which took place in the building’s Sky Lounge and outdoor, landscaped roof deck with the Manhattan skyline in the backdrop.  The event was held four months after The Hazel launched leasing for its 114 stylish residences and immediately found a welcoming public, with tremendous rental velocity recorded since early February.  The Marketing Directors is the building’s exclusive leasing agent.

Located at 89 Monitor Street, The Hazel is ideally located in the heart of the close-knit neighborhood that is conveniently connected to the city’s lively downtown district.  Six affordable residences are also included in the building, part of 30 total affordable homes the development team plans to deliver throughout its Bergen-Lafayette portfolio.munity.”

Spurring the popularity of The Hazel is its mix of well-appointed studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments complemented by a suite of forward-thinking, resort-inspired amenities.  Found within the six-story 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.  The Hazel also features TULU, an on-demand smart rental store for high-quality household and lifestyle products.

Lying 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.  Convenient access to Downtown Jersey has never been easier thanks to the opening of the Liberty State Park Bridge.  This extension of Jersey Avenue provides 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.  

For outdoor recreation, Liberty State Park offers more than 1,200 acres of open space, a two-mile waterfront promenade, an outdoor performance area, and a celebrated restaurant with sweeping views of the Hudson River, Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty. The park also offers a full-service marina, ferry service to Manhattan, charter boat excursions and maritime sightseeing tours.  Also anchoring the neighborhood is the Liberty Science Center with its ever-evolving interactive museum experience.

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