Bound Brook’s Citizen Bound Brook community now 70% leased


Citizen Bound Brook, the new luxury rental community in historic downtown Bound Brook, is now more than 70% leased, the community’s developer, Accurate, announced this week.

Citizen Bound Brook opened in April and has been leasing at a steady clip to renters who want to live in the heart of downtown Bound Brook. The location at 507 Main St. has helped drive the leasing velocity, as residents enjoy access to a town center with boutique shops, a supermarket, a florist, a bakery, coffee shops, cultural attractions and restaurants that serve a variety of international cuisine. The Bound Brook train station is one block away, offering daily service to Newark Penn Station, where transfers to Manhattan and the PATH system are available.

Citizen Bound Brook offers upscale, new-construction residences and a full complement of lifestyle amenities at monthly rental rates starting from $2,030 net effective, inclusive of special grand opening incentives of one month free on a 13-month lease or two months free on a 26-month lease. One- and two-bedroom residences are currently available.

“We are proud to reach the 70% leased milestone at Citizen Bound Brook so quickly,” Jack Klugmann, CEO and president of Accurate, said. “Our renters love the downtown Bound Brook location and are excited to live in one of our ‘Citizen’ brand communities. We look forward to the continued success of the building and the continued satisfaction of our residents as we welcome even more people to the community.”

Designed by Jarmel Kizel Architects & Engineers, with interiors by Susan Strauss Design, Citizen Bound Brook offers a variety of floorplans with spacious interiors, soaring ceiling heights and upscale finishes and appointments in a boutique six-story building of 105 residences. Modern finishes and appointments such as luxury plank flooring, complimentary window treatments, and an in-residence washer and dryer are found in every home. Gourmet kitchens boast sleek, full-sized stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, full-height subway tile backsplashes, espresso soft close cabinetry, four-burner gas ranges, custom soft-close vanities and chrome Moen faucets.

An array of lifestyle amenities designed for recreation and social interaction include an elegant club room, state-of-the-art fitness center and a landscaped outdoor terrace with lounge seating. On-site staff is easily accessible to residents and the community is pet-friendly. The building also provides 5,000 square feet of street-level retail space that will both enhance the retail offerings of downtown Bound Brook and serve as an extended onsite amenity for residents.

Settled during Colonial times, Bound Brook has a rich history and a strong social fabric. The borough is in the middle of a major effort to showcase the community’s many businesses, people and places, attract new commercial tenants and enhance the beauty of the downtown.

One of downtown Bound Brook’s cultural treasures, the Bound Brook Arts Center, is just one block from Citizen Bound Brook. It is a vintage 1920s theater recognized by the National Register of Historic Places that offers a full schedule of concerts and arts programming. Two parks are also just a short walk away. Billian Legion Park offers a playground, baseball field, sand volleyball court, grassy lawns and walking and biking trails. The Delaware & Raritan State Park offers corridors for hiking, jogging, bicycling, canoeing, fishing and horseback riding that extend approximately 70 miles along the D&R Canal.
