Jersey City Heights is experiencing an influx of thoughtful developments with three new properties: 85 Bowers Street, 84 Manhattan Avenue, and 74 Thorne Street all offer refined condominium residences either currently available or coming online soon. Beyond the attentive design and elegant finishes, these three properties also have the same listing agent in common and she is taking Jersey City’s hottest market and most adored neighborhood by storm.
Megan Gülick is a licensed realtor with Sawyer Smith Residential, and after just three years with the firm, has become the “Queen of The Heights,” said Sawyer Smith. “She is an awesome agent and the go-to, especially for smaller developers of high-quality condos and single-family homes.” Megan represents some interesting properties and focuses her energy and expertise mostly in The Heights. “She’s just taken over and is really genuine and hardworking,” said Smith. “She can connect with people on a different level.”
Megan began her professional life as an illustrative painter — some of her murals can still be seen around the city — and was active on the arts scene and within the arts community. Through her work organizing and planning art events in Jersey City, she met real estate developers and was exposed to the evolution of many properties, genuinely enjoying being a part of the transformation. Once Megan decided to become a licensed realtor, she recalls that she “started knuckling down and wasn’t going to say no to any opportunity.” It would “make me a better agent,” Megan said of her willingness to take on every listing no matter how small in the beginning.
Now, She has at least 15 buildings in her pipeline, including 85 Bowers, 84 Manhattan, and 74 Thorne. 85 Bowers Street is coming soon this spring and features two units that are renovated, but the classic details still resonate. Modern amenities like central AC and a tankless water heater are coupled with the timeless detail of handmade cornices and restored fireplaces. The four-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom duplex offers a private backyard and parking for $779,000 and the three-bedroom, two-bathroom residence is listed for $625,000. And a five-year tax abatement is available.
84 Manhattan Avenue is a true value play in a great location, featuring three units that will be move-in ready this April. All with private outdoor space, there are two three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom condos and one four-bedroom, three-bath duplex available. 5.25” white oak hardwood floors run throughout and each residence has a chef’s kitchen, spa-like baths, and is conveniently outfitted with Nest-controlled central AC and a washer/dryer. And the top floor unit’s roof deck provides stunning New York City views. Unit 2 is listed for $649,000 and Unit 3 is on the market for $699,000. Unit 1 is currently already under contract.
74 Thorne Street is a boutique building that both blends into and stands out from the surrounding architecture on this quiet one-way street. Low-rise but with nearly floor to ceiling windows and separate exterior entrances, it is a decidedly modern facade. The building offers only two duplex residences, each a generous 1,500 square feet. Both have private outdoor space — a lush backyard for the lower unit and a chic roof deck for the upper unit — and a master bedroom balcony. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a powder room, 5″ hardwood floors, and truly unique finishes with a touch of brass complete each exquisite duplex. Pricing is forthcoming.
Megan is quick to say that residential real estate is a natural fit for her and it’s a little like matchmaking — she looks for “the romance of the property and focuses on that.” And there’s certainly plenty to fall in love with in The Heights.
