Whitlock Mills offers residents multiple threads of connection — to a community, the neighborhood, greater Jersey City, and New York City beyond — not unlike the complex’s history as a cordage factory. Like cords braided together, Whitlock Mills is 34 buildings and more than 330 apartment homes, forming a vibrant mixed-income rental community in the heart of Bergen-Lafayette with easy access to transportation, offering community living for all.
The former Whitlock Cordage complex is both historic and brand new: Five original buildings were converted and 29 buildings were newly constructed, offering apartments and a complete suite of amenities with an inspired industrial aesthetic.
Units boast thoughtful interiors with modern finishes and unique architectural features like exposed brick, original refinished wood, or a sweeping city view. A variety of one-, two-, and three-bedroom units are available in two phases with the moderate-income apartments accepting applications right now and the market rate residences ready to rent before the end of this year.
Luxe perks in every unit include a washer/dryer, central air conditioning, efficient appliances (including microwaves in select units), and large closets with ample storage space.
Whitlock Mills also features one-of-a-kind, loft-style penthouses perfect for a truly exceptional rental experience.
Beyond the well-appointed apartments, Whitlock Mills typifies a vibrant connected community with an unexpected collection of amenities. Residents can enjoy complimentary coffee from “The Mills,” the on-site coffee bar, on the way to “HOME-Work,” a co-working space, while utilizing complimentary Wi-Fi across the community spaces.
Two state-of-the-art fitness centers and a courtyard with BBQ grills keep things balanced and social, while the outdoor movie theater comfortably brings the community together and is such fun for all ages.
Speaking of all ages, Whitlock Mills considered children and families when curating the resident amenities by partnering with the Boys and Girls Club to offer two exceptional community perks: after-school programming on-site and future summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) programs upon completion.
Whitlock Mills is a controlled access community that offers bicycle racks with repair stations. It is surrounded by off-street parking with close proximity to multiple Citi Bike Share Stations.
Beyond the community, the surrounding neighborhood of Lafayette is the eclectic center of Bergen-Lafayette just southwest of Downtown Jersey City. Cafes, bars, restaurants, and the city’s biggest and best green spaces, including Liberty State Park, are all within an easy walk or a bike ride. And commuting within Hudson County or to New York City couldn’t be easier with immediate access to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and connections to the PATH and New York Waterway ferry.
