With unmatched views, a package of luxury amenities, and modern, state-of-the-art apartments, Journal Squared is raising the bar on Jersey City rental living. Its leasing office opened on March 3rd, inviting the ambitious and aspiring to access some of the most highly anticipated apartments in town.
Perched atop a bluff at one of the highest points in Jersey City, the 53-story, 563-foot high tower – JC’s third tallest – is a true landmark that can be seen from the New Jersey Turnpike and Manhattan. But it’s not just a visual beacon. The opening of Journal Squared’s first tower of three is a major milestone in efforts to revitalize and redevelop the entire Journal Square area, transforming it into a vibrant and dynamic neighborhood poised to become JC’s next emerging cultural center.
Journal Squared consists of 538 rentals, ranging from studios to three-bedroom residences, each one offering a package of lifestyle amenities that is without peer. At the top of the list, both literally and figuratively, is the Sky Lounge, a stunning space on the 53rd floor, with sweeping, panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline. It’s a perfect spot for entertaining, with banquet tables and a retractable movie screen with stadium seating.
The extraordinary feel of Journal Squared starts as soon as you step into the building, thanks to an open, airy double-height lobby where natural light warms the dramatic space. And on the eighth floor you’ll find another 10,000 sq. ft. of world-class amenities, such as Club JSQ, a lounge perfect for productivity and relaxation alike. The library is an inviting workspace with long tables, complimentary Wi-Fi, and lots of electrical outlets. The lounge also offers access to the swimming pool and sun terrace.
You’ll also find resort-style amenities here, such as a fitness center, billiards room, playground, and a sky lounge. Resident programming will include boot camps, yoga classes, and guided meditation sessions, all complimentary. Also slated are cooking demonstrations and classes, pop-up restaurant partnerships, happy hours, and other social events designed to offer a true sense of community.
Of course, there’s no amenity quite so coveted as a prime location – and they don’t come much better than this. A covered walkway connects the Journal Squared building to the Journal Square Transportation Center, where NJ Transit and PATH trains offer a quick and painless commute to Manhattan, Hoboken, and Newark.
As for the apartment units themselves, these residences offer much more than just a magnificent view. They also feature stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, in-home washer and dryer, and central air, pairing function with a sleek, modern form that’s as striking as the vistas.
These groundbreaking residences are complemented by a landscaped pedestrian plaza slated to host community events and seasonal activities, along with 36,000 sq. ft. of ground-level retail and restaurant space. Tenants already announced, on the way, or already open include PJ Ryan’s Pub, Jersey City’s first Starbucks outside downtown, and just announced last month, the second outpost of the wholesome and locally focused Whealth.
Journal Squared’s combination of location, luxury, and spectacular views is something you simply will not find anywhere else. For a piece of this elevated Jersey City lifestyle, rents start in the $1,800’s!
