New luxury apartments open in South Amboy

BNE and local officials celebrate the latest development along the Raritan Bay waterfront

Station Bay, a new luxury apartment community in South Amboy on the Raritan Bay waterfront, has opened, according to a Tuesday announcement from BNE Real Estate Group.

As the first phase to open within a multiphase, $500 million redevelopment project, Station Bay brings a new generation of development for South Amboy, a popular suburban destination that’s expected to see considerable growth upon the arrival of a new ferry terminal that will provide direct access to New York City.

“From the very beginning, we shared in BNE’s vision to transform what was once vacant industrial land into a waterfront destination that would bring much-needed rental housing to South Amboy,” Henry said. “It’s very important for us to pursue new developments such as Station Bay, which provide attractive housing options and amenities that improve our city. Now that Station Bay has opened its doors, we’d like to extend a warm welcome to the newest members of our incredible community.”

Featuring 291 rental residences and over 37,000 square feet of amenities and services, each of the building’s studio, one- and two-bedroom residences offer well-appointed living spaces.
