Skye Lofts South, a six-story apartment building that’s been rising beside the 22nd Street Light Rail station in Bayonne, began accepting renters this month into the 90 one- and two-bedroom units.
The building boasts two lounges, a fitness center, bike storage, private storage, and enclosed parking. The occupants of the ground-floor retail space have not yet been announced.
Located at 250 Avenue E, the building is two blocks from Broadway, the city’s main drag. It’s one of several new residential projects in the 5.8-square-mile waterfront city, which has had a development boost in the last two decades with the opening of four light rail stops along the waterfront. The light rail runs from Bayonne through Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, and Union City into North Bergen, allowing riders to connect easily to Manhattan.
“Bayonne has long been on the cusp of becoming the next Gold Coast hotspot,” said Mitchell Burakovsky, president of locally-based Skye Development. “While it’s located adjacent to Jersey City, it offers a quieter, less-densely-developed residential setting than its northern neighbor, yet still provides a walkable downtown with shops, dining, nightlife and services.”
Skye Lofts South recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Bayonne Mayor James Davis, other municipal officials, and principals of Skye Development, LLC.
The Marketing Directors are the exclusive marketing and leasing agents.
The building’s mixed brick and panel façade, with stucco accents, was designed by DAL Design Group.
