It’s often said that the holy grail of city living is having a piece of green. Well, try having 273 acres of green at your doorstep, and that’s just the beginning. In fact, the bragging rights afforded by JC’s newest historic renovation, One Twenty Six on the Park, are seemingly endless. Developed by Frank Peraza of 126 Delaware LLC, marketed by Prime Real Estate Group, and co-broked with Twill Realty LLC, the final result of this spare-no-expense project has “renaissance charm reinvented” written all over it.
Located at the foot of Jersey City’s cherished, shade tree-lined Lincoln Park, the one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos at One Twenty Six on the Park rival the natural beauty of their surroundings. Starting in the mid-$300’s, each of the sixteen homes combines a unique mix of classic details with modern design accents, offering a rare opportunity to own a slice of gorgeously restored Jersey City history. The building is pre-war, and the units are brand new construction, configured after a complete rehabilitation of the internal structure.
Inside the homes, you’ll find captivating features like original exposed brickwork, oak flooring, and shaker-style cabinets and doors. Kitchens feel bright and airy, with neverending counter space done in dazzling white quartz and stylish pendant lights giving off a warm, soft glow. Grow your wine collection in true urban chic style — you’ll find built-in wine refrigerators in the two- and three-bedroom homes.
Bathrooms continue the light, bright, and airy feel with porcelain tile and white shaker-style vanities for a spa-like effect. Quartz vanity tops and polished chrome fixtures keep things clean and modern.
Homes at One Twenty Six on the Park range in size from 741 square feet (with one-bedrooms topping out at 911 square feet) all the way up to 2,000 square feet for the largest of the three bedrooms. Many units feature sweeping park views, complemented by oversized arch wood-framed windows. Enjoy the spaciousness of high ceilings, the convenience of bike storage space and a video intercom system, and let the washer/dryer combo in every unit rinse away unpleasant memories of lugging laundry all over town.
Speaking of town, get out there! Walk just to the corner and hop on a 7-minute bus ride to Journal Square, which is quickly becoming Jersey City’s next-level cultural hub. Catch a classic flick at the Art Deco-era Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre, or get lost in the world-class art at Mana Contemporary. Sample a bite of ensaymada at one of the many Filipino cafes that dot the neighborhood, or visit Newark Avenue’s “Little India” for a totally immersive experience.
For a dose of green, your personal backyard awaits. Designed by award-winning landscape architects at the turn of the century, Lincoln Park has something for everyone from playgrounds and tennis courts to walking trails that will make you swear you’re far from the city. Kiddies will love spotting native wildlife, and four-legged friends get their day in the sun, too, with a nearby enclosed dog run. There’s even a golf course, farmer’s market, and yoga classes.
Each condo at One Twenty Six on the Park includes the option for a dedicated spot in a secure, indoor parking area steps away. The building’s location offers easy access to Newark Airport and many major highways, including the NJ Turnpike. Nearby buses run frequently, making it easy to hop on the PATH train anytime. Once you’ve caught the PATH at Journal Square, you’re just minutes away from the vibrant shopping and nightlife of downtown Jersey City. Ride two more stops, and you’ll arrive at the World Trade Center transit hub, or take the alternate PATH line to get to Midtown Manhattan in about 20 minutes.
The developer behind the building has over 25 years of real estate experience. He has been investing in and developing property in Jersey City since 2004, completing both ground-up new construction and total rehabilitation of buildings in historic districts.
