Glen Ridge rental community opens for leasing, JMF says

Clarus Glen Ridge, the newest upscale community from JMF Properties, is now open for leasing, the firm said Tuesday.

The community, a collection of 110 residences located on Baldwin Avenue, is the second to carry the Clarus brand name, which was created by JMF founder and Principal Joe Forgione.

“Clarus Glen Ridge builds on the tremendous popularity of our first ‘Clarus’ community, Clarus Maplewood, but on a grander scale with more amenities and luxuries,” Forgione said. “The result is a product that brings a new housing type to the area and sets a new standard for luxury living, one that we are thrilled to showcase to prospective renters now that the community is officially open.”

Nearly 50% of the residences at Clarus Glen Ridge, which sits on the border of Glen Ridge and Montclair, have already been leased, thanks to a special early leasing period. There are one- and two-bedroom units still available at monthly rents that start at $2,595, JMF said.

“Clarus Glen Ridge residents can walk to the many restaurants, parks and cultural attractions that downtown Montclair is known for, but, when they return home, they are in a quiet, relaxed suburban neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle,” Forgione said. “It really is the best of both worlds.”
