NOMA, luxury rentals in Ridgewood by Onyx, to begin leasing in January (SLIDESHOW)

John Saraceno has good reason to be excited about NOMA, the luxury rental offering in Ridgewood from Onyx Equities that will hold its grand opening in January.

You can even say it’s all about the Benjamins — but not in the way you may think.

Saraceno, Onyx’s co-founder and managing principal, said NOMA is an intimate collection of just 39 luxury residences complemented by what he is calling “a country club” collection of lifestyle amenities that seamlessly connect with the surrounding culture of Ridgewood’s classic downtown district.

NOMA, named for its North Maple Avenue location, also is the boutique successor to Onyx’s successful sister community, the Benjamin, which leased up this past spring in just 50 days.

“It was always our intention to create two high-level residential rental options, juxtaposing one with more traditional design elements and materials and one with a more edgy feel to ensure that we appealed to all renters looking to stay in Ridgewood,” he said. “We leased up the Benjamin in less than two months, which let us know that we made the right product for this community.”

The NOMA residences, he said, will feature 9- to 10-foot ceilings, open-concept layouts with walnut plank flooring, STRATIS smart home technology, custom modular closets and an in-home washer & dryer. Modern kitchens will provide the best of form and function with white quartz counters, stainless-steel appliances, sprawling breakfast bars, custom European cabinets and wine storage. The spa-like bathrooms will have full-height tiled wet walls, white quartz counters, frameless glass showers and back-lit vanity mirrors. For those seeking extra space, larger den layouts will be available and select homes will offer private outdoor space.

Beyond the ideal at-home environment, NOMA will provide an all-inclusive lifestyle like no other through its robust amenity package, which will include a commercial-grade Matrix fitness center, a yoga studio with virtual training technology, resident lounge with billiards and shuffleboard, a golf simulator, coworking spaces and a lush rooftop lounge featuring an outdoor bar, green lawn with a movie screen, and a private party area. The community also includes on-site covered parking, controlled access, resident storage, package delivery lockers, bicycle storage and a pet spa.

NOMA is located at 48 N. Maple St. between East Ridgewood and Franklin Avenue in the heart of the village and offers convenient access to Ridgewood Train Station, a hub for New Jersey Transit along the Bergen County Line offering quick access into Manhattan in approximately 40 minutes. On-site leasing will be led by the Marketing Directors.
