The 163-unit property at 23 University Place Blvd. was developed by the Hampshire Cos. and Claremont Cos. Units range from 550 square feet to 1,300 square feet in studio, one- and two-bedroom layouts. The building is part of the University Place redevelopment plan.

Rents start at $1,600 a month, with occupancy to begin in July.

“RIVET offers all of the luxury and lifestyle amenities of comparable waterfront/downtown properties at affordable price points,” Richard Sciaretta, a director with Far Hills-based Claremont Cos., said in a prepared statement.

Amenities include a cybercafe, a courtyard with sundeck and more, an indoor lounge, a fitness center and more.

The property also includes 10,000 square feet of retail space, as well as parking.
