Delford luxury apartment building tops out in Rochelle Park

Just steps from the Westfield Garden State Plaza, the Delford at Village Center recently celebrated its topping-out. The luxury rental building, in Rochelle Park, will be ready for occupancy in spring 2024.

With on-site concierge, an outdoor pool, beautifully landscaped rooftop terrace, unbeatable location and state-of-the-art amenities, the Delford is set to bring an upscale oasis to the heart of Bergen County. Future residents can soon plan their move to the brand-new luxury rental building.

The Delford, a six-story, 160-unit multifamily development of one- and two-bedroom homes located at 120 W. Passaic St., is part of a larger multiuse redevelopment project spearheaded by Tulfra Real Estate, also located in the township. The real estate developers broke ground on the project in December 2022, marking the residential development stage of a larger mixed-use project called Village Center.

Living is designed to be easy at the Delford, complete with an a covered, two-story parking garage, bike storage and a monitored mailroom with package lockers. Sleek furnishings and accents will welcome residents as they walk into the grand lobby, setting the tone for the high-end appliances and modern finishes within each unit.

Residents and their guests will be able to enjoy a laid-back resident lounge with other community members, a picturesque rooftop terrace and a swimming pool complete with a lounging deck and BBQ grills. Residents can stay in shape at the on-site fitness center, working out to poolside views.

“When people move, they’re looking for so much more than an apartment building; they’re looking for a community,” Marcus Lee, Tulfra’s asset manager, said.

“With all the amenities and common spaces at the Delford, our residents will find endless opportunities to build connections without leaving the building,” he says.

The Delford at Village Center is set to be a commuter’s dream. Just one block from Route 17, and a few blocks from Garden State Parkway’s Exit 160, it will allow future residents to easily get to major points throughout northern New Jersey in minutes. The George Washington Bridge is a short 15-minute drive, while several bus routes and the jitney take riders directly into New York City.

“There’s no better place than the Delford if you want driving to any major point in New Jersey, Manhattan or Rockland County to be a breeze,” Lee said. “Nearly every major highway that crosses through New Jersey is an incredibly short drive from the Delford, great for commuters and resident visitors alike.”

Shopping lovers can’t get closer to the action than they will at the Delford, which is in Westfield Garden State Plaza’s backyard. This premier shopping destination, with 300 stores alongside dining and entertainment, is regularly ranked among the best malls in the U.S. And that’s just one retail center in the neighborhood — the greater Rochelle Park area, which is another well-known shopping destination, is also within a few minutes’ drive from the Delford.

“The Delford will truly be at the center of it all, with incredibly easy access to fine dining, family entertainment and great retailers,” Sonny Jumani, CEO and president of Tulfra, said.

Located at a former AT&T data storage site, the Delford will be joined by 8,000 square feet of retail space. A public park extending from Sprout Brook to a landscaped pond is also planned for the site. A 113,000-square-foot self-storage facility on-site opened in 2020.
