Renovated Hoboken property gets new name

The Metropolitan in Hoboken now has a new name to go along with its new ownership.

The Bexley is an upscale residential and retail building at 1300 Clinton St., announced Advance Realty, which bought the complex in February.

The Bridgewater-based real estate company is now leasing the newly renovated apartments, which include new flooring, kitchen cabinets, appliances and bathrooms.

The upgrades are part of a multiphase renovation that includes the modernization of the lobbies and common area hallways, resident club lounge, business center, package room and outdoor courtyard.

The Bexley is next to Advance’s “lifestyle-oriented” apartment building, Harlow. It has two parallel, five-story apartment buildings connected by an elevated, landscaped courtyard, with ground-floor retail.

There are 128 residences, with an above-ground parking garage and amenities such as a fitness center, club room, business center and a package concierge system.

The Bexley’s units have new wide-plank flooring, individual unit-controlled heating and air conditioning, USB wall ports and new in-home washers and dryers. Bedrooms feature spacious closets, and bathrooms include quartz countertops, concrete chic glazed porcelain tile and rainfall shower heads.

The updated units also have gourmet kitchens featuring solid wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances (including dishwashers and microwaves), gas ovens, recessed sinks, quartz countertops and a polished white, beveled edge subway tile backsplash.

The renovated courtyard has seating areas and barbecue grills, and shuttle service to and from the Hoboken PATH train station.

“When The Bexley was originally constructed in the early 2000s, it was among the premier rental communities in Hoboken,” Advance Realty CEO and President Peter Cocoziello said. “Our comprehensive renovation program returns the property to its rightful place among the most desirable residential options in the city. We view both Harlow and The Bexley as long-term investments, and we’ll continue to devote capital toward ensuring they remain at the forefront of Hoboken’s luxury rental market.”

The Bexley is at the gateway entrance to Hoboken, near the 14th Street Viaduct, which recently underwent a $54 million renovation to allow for continuous traffic flow.

It’s about a mile from the Lincoln Tunnel entrance and Route 495, which provides access to the New Jersey Turnpike as well as Routes 3 and 1-9.

Several public transportation options are also available in the area, including the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, Hoboken Ferry, PATH trains and NJ Transit lines.
