‘New Urbanism lifestyle’: Leasing underway at Eddy in Harrison

Development offers 310 apartments, upscale amenities on waterfront

The Eddy, featuring 310 modern apartments with resort-style amenities along the Harrison waterfront, officially began leasing.

It’s the latest building to open as part of a prolific mixed-use development effort by development partners Ironstate Development Co. and the Pegasus Group — a partnership that ultimately will deliver 2,250 luxury residences, 80,000 square feet of retail space and a hotel.

Michael Barry, CEO of Ironstate, is confident the Eddy will be a perfect complement to the community.

“The Eddy was designed to showcase everything that makes the Harrison lifestyle appealing, including compelling value when compared with locations like Jersey City and Hoboken,” he said. “Renters will appreciate the thoughtfully designed interior spaces, upscale amenities and a location that blends waterfront living with access to local shops and services, as well as Manhattan via the PATH system.

“We’re thrilled to officially launch our leasing program at the Eddy in a neighborhood that has become a highly-desirable extension of the New Jersey Gold Coast.”

Pegasus Group Principal Richard Miller said the Harrison waterfront remains a rising destination known for its prolific new development activity and charming post-industrial vibe. The Eddy, he said, fits right in.

“The Eddy continues our collective goal of introducing modern living options to Harrison while respecting the local fabric,” he said. “We’re confident that our newest offering will once again appeal to professionals and those interested in the New Urbanism lifestyle.”

Residents of the Eddy, which is located at 555 First St., will enjoy walking-distance access to local retail shops and restaurants and the Harrison PATH station.

Stylishly appointed studio, one-, and two-bedroom residences are now available at monthly rental rates starting from the $1,500s, with up to three months free in grand opening incentives, according to the Marketing Directors, the community’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

Designed by Front Studio Architects in collaboration with Minno & Wasko Architects and Planners and BG Studio, the Eddy features a modern industrial aesthetic with an iridescent brick and metal façade. Inside, the residences boast contemporary design with bright, airy living spaces and details such as custom roller shade window treatments.

Kitchens include Pearl Jasmine Silestone countertops and backsplashes, custom cabinetry, kitchen islands, Moen and Kohler sinks and faucets, and stainless-steel Whirlpool appliances. Bathrooms are adorned with grey oak porcelain tile and multifunction showerheads.

Each residence also includes in-unit washer & dryer and keyless entry technology. Select residences feature views of the waterfront.

A comprehensive suite of indoor and outdoor amenities is designed to enhance the lifestyle experience. The community’s fitness program provides virtual fitness classes through an app custom tailored to the community, cardio equipment with interactive touch screens and ability to stream your favorite shows, and private trainers available to residents for an additional fee through the app.

A yoga/kid’s room caters to children for a portion of the day and functions as a yoga room the rest of the day. The resident lounge features a fireplace, individual workspaces and an Eddy’s Canteen vending area with coffee and snacks available for purchase. Residents also have access to conference rooms and private workspaces with televisions. The community’s party room is an indoor/outdoor space with televisions and a kitchen inside and BBQ grill outside.

“The Eddy captures all of the urban energy and excitement that seems to emanate from the ground up in Harrison,” said Jacqueline Urgo, president of the Marketing Directors. “It is the perfect addition to the neighborhood. Residents will enjoy a lifestyle similar to what you find in Hoboken and downtown Jersey City, but at an enhanced value. We’re excited to open our doors and showcase everything this exceptional community offers.”
