One of Journal Square’s newest high-rises will soon be home to a large market from the ownership behind several Jersey City grocers.

Overlook Market, along with sister business Overlook Wine & Spirits, have signed a lease to occupy two retail spaces totaling 2,882 square feet inside the Overlook Flats at 32 Oakland Avenue. Developer Milton Fantin and the Fantin Companies announced the deal with the retailers, who are expected to open later this year.

Overlook Market will be the third store its ownership has opened in Jersey City, joining River Mart at 65 Maple Street and Lenox Market at 207 Van Vorst Street. The new Oakland Street market will provide everything from everyday conveniences, candy and organic snacks, to pre-packaged deli meats and much more.

Overlook Wine & Spirits offers a wide selection of premium wines and spirits, as well as domestic and imported beer. Additional food shopping options should be welcome news for fast-growing Journal Square, which welcomed Food Story Natural Market earlier this year.

“The owners of Overlook Market have a well-earned reputation in Jersey City for providing high-quality products and meeting the needs of neighborhood residents,” said Igor Fantin, Business Manager at Urban Property Managers, the in-house property management arm of the Fantin companies. “We’re delighted to bring them to Journal Square where they will be a tremendous asset for our residents and the area.”

“We’re excited to be a part of Overlook Flats and the up-and-coming Journal Square community,” says Overlook Market owner Dixit Patel. “We work to establish strong relationships with our customers and listen to their wants and wishes so we can offer a selection of high-end products that provide everything they’re looking for.”

A third retail space is currently in the process of being leased at Overlook Flats, a project Jersey Digs has been following since 2018. Now completed, it features 297 units and amenities that include a breathtaking rooftop terrace with a pool, firepits, and lounge overlooking the Manhattan skyline..
