East Rutherford apartment community Central & Oak hits 70% leasing mark

The luxury apartment community Central & Oak in East Rutherford is approaching the three-quarters leasing mark, developers Sterling Properties and Willton Investment Group announced this week.

The seven-building complex at 80 Oak St. is now 70% leased, the joint venture said in a news release, with 146 of the 208 apartments taken. Leasing began in June.

“The pandemic has accelerated preexisting trends that informed the design of Central & Oak, including the flight of renters toward communities that provide an airy, green-friendly environment without sacrificing accessibility and convenience to entertainment, dining, shopping and recreation,” Nicholas Hollenbeck, Sterling’s director of sales and marketing, said in a prepared statement.

Apartments range from 724-1,308 square feet.
