Elmwood Park, N.J., Gets First Luxury Multifamily Community
- Aug 07, 2012
Elmwood Park, N.J.—Riverfront Residential, a New Jersey-based development company, recently announced that construction is complete on the first phase of Riverwalk, the first luxury multifamily community in Elmwood Park, N.J.
Riverwalk features 158 units. The first phase of the community includes 91 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Units include 9-foot ceilings and in-unit washers and dryers. The kitchens include granite countertops, custom tile flooring, glass tile back splashes and stainless steel appliances. The bathrooms include vanities with gold marble tops.
Luxury amenities for the community include on-site parking, a fitness center and a virtual doorman. There are also plans to build a private river walk, which would have views of the Passiaic River. Additionally, the community features 17,000 square feet of retail space.
“To meet the growing demand for upscale rentals in Bergen County, we developed Riverwalk—Elmwood Park’s first luxury apartment community,” Bernie Langan, managing member of Riverfront Residential, tells MHN. “However, we didn’t just build top-of-line apartments with features and finishes that are usually reserved for for-sale communities; we created a full lifestyle experience in a mixed-use development, where residents are afforded superb amenities like a private gym and a riverwalk, have easy access to the neighboring office park as well as local shopping, restaurants and major highways. And this will only be heightened in the second phase, which includes the development of ground floor retail space.”
The community is also located near major highways, including the Garden State Parkway and Routes 80, 46, 21 and 17. Additionally, Riverwalk is located near shopping venues, restaurants, airports and sporting arenas, including Newark Liberty International Airport, Garden State Plaza and MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands Sports Complex.
“With Riverwalk, we are not simply constructing an exceptional building. Rather, we are creating a rich and full lifestyle experience,” Langan says. “This community’s location within a mixed-use development provides a seamless and dynamic live, work and play environment.”
