For rent: 485 Marin, near Hamilton Park, Jersey City.

What does the future of apartment living look like? Sleek architecture? High-tech amenities? Green space? At 485 Marin in Jersey City’s historic Hamilton Park neighborhood, the future is all of these things and more — but most importantly, at 485 Marin, the future is now.

This 18-story, 397-unit apartment building is more than just the largest rental property in this quaint neighborhood of Victorian brownstones and tree-lined streets. It’s also where residents can use the cutting-edge Hello Alfred service for app-based lifestyle coordination with a human touch which is only available to Jersey City residents living in KRE Group buildings.

This revolutionary platform combines concierge services with savvy Alfred home managers who can assist with a wide array of everyday and extraordinary residential needs. Hello Alfred helps residents facilitate deliveries, including groceries all the way to the fridge and laundry hung in the closet. Use the app to coordinate move-in, errands, and more, executed by the dedicated home managers they simply call…Alfreds. It’s the next best thing to actually being Bruce Wayne.

And 485 Marin offers much more than just a high-touch service experience for its residents. The amenity package is comprehensive, with a fitness center where you can work up a sweat, a private dining room for dinner parties, and a screening room for movie night. The lobby is attended 24 hours a day, and on the fifth floor there’s even more — a pool deck, sun lounge, outdoor showers, and grilling stations for classic cookouts.

One truly special amenity is the privately-developed public park at street level. It’s meant as a gathering space for residents and the greater Hamilton Park community, where urban green space is a remarkable local perk indeed.

485 Marin is the latest project by the team behind Journal Squared, consisting of developer KRE Group, architect Hollwich Kushner (HWKN), and interior designer Christopher Stephens. At 18 stories, it’s considerably smaller than that 563-foot tower, but that means it’s a better fit in this charming neighborhood, with a red brick exterior and a slice to allow a visual corridor through the area.

The area includes convenient commutes via the Holland Tunnel or the Newport PATH station, each just a few hundred feet away, and plenty of shopping essentials. Retailers like ShopRite, Best Buy, Target, and Home Depot can all be found within a mile and Newport Centre is right across the street.

Nearby restaurants include Texas-style BBQ spot and edible pun Hamilton Pork, gelato and booze slingers Bucket & Bay, Pet Shop for vegetarian dishes, and Smith & Chang for locally sourced coffee.

Apartment homes at 485 Marin Boulevard start at $2,350 per month for a studio. For more information, visit 485Marin.com or contact The Marketing Directors at 201-834-0624.
