For developers, building luxury rentals on the Jersey City waterfront is a competitive business, so they routinely try to outdo one another in amenity packages. In Marbella and M2 at Marbella, two high-rise buildings at 425 Washington Boulevard with a connecting bridge, Roseland Residential Trust appealed to the busy renter looking for condo-level amenities.
Residents of both buildings have access to a full-service concierge, fitness centers, yoga studio with fitness on demand, and a 7th floor terrace that feels like a resort — pool, spa, lounge areas, BBQ grills, double-sided fireplace and outdoor billiards.
There are plenty of places to meet and mingle too. Two club rooms offer residents a chic respite with plush lounge seating, another upscale club room has a sky terrace, and there’s the Malvasia sky bar and lounge.
Outdoor catering is available, and there’s a meeting place to enjoy it with friends or family. For the industrious, a private conference room allows you to conduct business meetings just an elevator ride away. Don’t worry — there’s WiFi in common areas.
Studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in M2 include dark hardwood floors, quartz countertops, Energy Star Whirlpool appliances, full-size Bosch washer/dryer, sustainable carpeting in bedrooms, travertine tile bathrooms, and walk-in closets. The building is LEED certified.
Units in Marbella include hardwood flooring, full-size washer/dryer, plush carpeting in bedrooms, ceramic tile bathrooms, and walk-in closets. Select apartments have balconies and Manhattan views.
Convenience is part of the luxury: Residents are just minutes to the Harsimus Cove light rail station, and a few blocks to the Newport PATH. By car, you’re close to the Holland Tunnel; and there’s easy access to the NY Waterway ferry. For jet-setters, Newark Airport is about 30 minutes away.
Nearby dining can be found at Taphaus, Battello, The Warehouse Cafe, Fire and Oak, and O’Hara’s Downtown. Or, stay home — there’s a Chili’s at Marbella.
To instill a sense of community, an on-site program director schedules champagne and cupcake pop-up events, gelato tastings, catered barbecues, pool parties, and happy hours with pets, among other things.
There’s also a dog run, children’s indoor and outdoor play area, and a golf lounge.
