Hamilton Park recently welcomed 397 units at 485 Marin Boulevard, developed by KRE Group. The property is the largest rental development in the neighborhood and opened 70% leased in September.

“This is a unique rental development that will be home to Jersey City’s newest public park, Marin Green,” Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said in a news release. “We continue to strive to meet the needs of Jersey City’s neighborhoods by working with developers to offer various options for new and current residents as we look to improve communities with new amenities such as parks, retail space and affordable housing.”

KRE is also the developer behind Marin Green, a one-acre park directly behind its own rental property.

Units at the 18-story building start at $2,435 for a studio and range up to three bedrooms. The property also offers Hello Alfred residential services.

Hollowich Kushner, Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects, and Melillo & Bauer Associates designed 485 Marin and Marin Green.

  1. What exactly does Mr. Fulop and his cohorts call affordable housing? Because It’s evident that it seems like people are being forced out instead working to improve communities, not by building apartments that have ridiculous rents that aren’t affordable like the new building on Westside & Lexington Avenue which is asking $1800 – $2000 a month for 2 bedrooms. That’s not affordable rent!

    • This particular building had 20% affordable. So it’s like 1K a month for a one bedroom or something like that. I had friends that applied, unfortunately other people got them before them …
      By the way, 1800 for a 2 bedroom is actually REALLY GOOD. They go for over 3000 in downtown …
