Leasing has begun at a new rental property in Jersey City’s Bergen Lafayette neighborhood.

295J is a 309-unit rental building developed by Ironstate Development Co. in partnership with Brookfield Asset Management Inc. and Landmark Development, and designed by BKSK Architects in partnership with Executive Architect Kitchen & Associates.

“We’re excited to officially open 295J in a neighborhood that has a unique character and desirable lifestyle attributes,” David Barry, president of Ironstate Development Co., said. “We expect our residents to explore and enjoy the local fabric of the neighborhood while also taking advantage of the adjacent Light Rail Station that will conveniently connect them to Downtown Jersey City and additional public transportation options into Manhattan.”

Located just west of downtown Jersey City at 295 Johnston Ave., the five-story, steel-and-brick-clad building reflects the industrial style of the area inside and out. It has studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts available with rents starting from $1,910. Initial occupancy is slated for April. Each apartment has keyless entrance technology, large windows, kitchens with modern Whirlpool appliances, in-home washer/dryers, individual heating and cooling systems, and more.

Shared amenities among residents include an art-filled lobby with 24/7 concierge services and Amazon lockers, a fitness center, a resident lounge, a landscaped courtyard, a pool, BBQ grills, fire pits, ping pong, dog-washing station, rooftop dog run, covered parking and more.

The property is within a few blocks from Communipaw Avenue, the area’s business corridor,  as well as Liberty State Park and the Liberty Science Center. Adjacent to the building is a Citi Bike Station with 22 shared bikes. It is also nearby Route 78 and the Holland Tunnel.
