KRE, Lyft sign partnership for 485 Marin in Jersey City

Ride-sharing company Lyft and real estate firm The KRE Group have announced a partnership that will make Lyft the official ride-share partner of a new luxury rental building, Jersey City’s 485 Marin.

Kushner Real Estate Group, based in Bridgewater, is the developer of the 485 Marin building in the Hamilton Park neighborhood, which opened in September 2018. KRE Group said more than 90 percent of the building’s 397 apartments are leased.

“We’re thrilled that Lyft is now the official ride-share partner of 485 Marin,” Jonathan Kushner, KRE Group’s president, said in a prepared statement. “This partnership will provide our tenants with ease of access to the reliable, fast and affordable service that Lyft offers, in an effort to improve daily commutes and elevate the residential experience.”

The building will now offer designated pick-up and drop-off zones and discounted rides from Lyft, and will appear in the Lyft app as a pick-up destination. Other benefits include limited 50 percent off codes and discounted new user credits.

The Marketing Directors is the exclusive leasing and marketing agent for the building, where residences begin at $3,730 a month for a two-bedroom apartment.
