801 Palisade Avenue is 90% sold, but two residences remain in this boutique condominium building in the heart of booming Union City. Oversized and stunning, the last available units are well-appointed and with a five-year tax abatement, you can’t afford not to live here.
The building is centrally located along Palisade Avenue, high above Hoboken and directly north of The Heights in Jersey City, with easy access to transportation for a quick Manhattan commute — Port Authority door-to-door is a 20-minute trip. Developed by Malas Brothers and marketed by Grisselle Martinez of The Grisselle Group at Coldwell Banker, 801 Palisade Avenue wows from the moment you enter the grand lobby, graced by crystal chandeliers and clad in Porcelanosa tile. “The Malas Brothers build homes that they are proud of for home buyers to enjoy for a lifetime,” said Ms. Martinez. The building also offers an elevator and indoor garage parking.
The available residences have two bedrooms and two bathrooms with New York City views and luxe finishes. Unit 205 is 1,200 square feet and Unit 206 is 1,169 square feet. Wide expansive hallways lead the way into breathtaking residences with nine-foot ceilings and imported seven-inch wide hardwood plank floors throughout. Peace and quiet, as well as great light, is another luxury appointment with double-pane Pella windows.
An open floor plan provides ample space for living and the gourmet kitchen makes cooking and entertaining an easy joy. All white with quartz countertops and 42” shaker cabinets, the space is sleek and equipped with stainless steel appliances, a convenient double-depth under-mount sink, and an island for additional counter space and seating. And chic pendants overhead are a nice light touch.
The spacious master bedroom suite includes an ample walk-in closet and a private bath that is truly luxurious. Imported marble, tile, and quartz create cool surfaces around the sexy geometric standing shower, glass-enclosed on three sides, and the rich wood vanity offers enough storage to keep counters clean and uncluttered.
Residences also include a full-size washer/dryer and central heat and air. And the building offers residents a lushly landscaped exterior plus a paved patio perfect for BBQ’s or just relaxing.
Union City is diverse and definitely on the rise. People are moving in from Manhattan, Brooklyn, South Jersey, and beyond. The Malas Brothers are fully invested in Union City, identifying the value that many in the industry are seeing now as well. The market is up more than 28% and over 12% growth is expected next year, according to a Zillow report. It is a vibrant community with plenty to eat, see, and do with an unbeatable proximity to NYC.
Marketing agent Grisselle Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, but her parents immigrated to Union City when she was a child, and she cannot speak highly enough of her hometown. Washington Park was recently completely renovated and offers lots of recreation and there are a total of four pristine public swimming pools around town. Lively restaurants abound along Bergenline Avenue and Union City reaps the benefits of its location along the Palisades with easy access to Jersey City, Hoboken, and Manhattan plus sweeping city views.
Ms. Martinez started The Grisselle Group seven years ago; however, she started working on new construction 18 years ago, setting sales records and selling out buildings all over Hudson County. She deftly markets the whole building and of her diligent, hard-working, team approach she simply says, “We get it sold.”
801 Palisade Avenue is a “where do we sign” kind of property, says Ms. Martinez. Between the location, finishes, and value, buyers make the decision to purchase easily. Unit 205 is offered for $699,000 and Unit 206 is offered for $679,000 and the residences also offer a five-year tax abatement.
