PEEK Properties launches leasing of 138-unit at Highland in Orange

PEEK Properties on Tuesday announced it launched leasing at its newest multifamily community in Orange. The 138-unit, five-story building is the latest luxury addition to the city’s expanding apartment-rental housing stock, which includes PEEK’s Orange Crossing redevelopment downtown.

Known as the Highland and located at 416 Highland Ave. in the southwest section of the city, the luxury community is situated at the corner of Highland and Lincoln avenues, and just a five-minute walk to New Jersey Transit’s Highland Station.

The Highland features a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom open-concept layouts ranging from 533 square feet to 1,163 square feet. Apartments feature vaulted ceilings, a balcony or patio, vinyl flooring and in-unit washer/dryer. Island kitchen finishes include white-washed cabinetry, a pantry, white subway-tile backsplash and quartz countertops with a stainless-steel appliance package with a dishwasher and a microwave.

On-premises community and outdoor spaces range from a fitness center, resident lounge and business hub to an outdoor courtyard deck with chaises, gas grills, fire pits and a dog park. Surface-lot and covered garage parking with electric vehicle chargers are available on site.

“As east Essex County’s most transformative city, Orange is drawing a new wave of renters by choice, from advanced-degree students and young professionals to executives with families and highly educated empty-nesters,” Darla Rodriguez, PEEK’s director of property management, said.

“The Highland is drawing a great deal of attention among this cohort, especially those with ties to the region who value the high-end living experience and balance within a smaller city that is merging its historic roots with a modern urban lifestyle,” she added.

Positioned at the Crossroads of New Jersey, where Interstate 280 and the Garden State Parkway intersect, the region’s highway network of the New Jersey Turnpike and Route 21 rounds out NJ Transit’s extensive rail and bus network. Commuter rail at Highland Station offers service along the Morris and Essex Lines, Morristown Line and Gladstone Branch, connecting to New York Penn Station, Hoboken Terminal, Hackettstown and Gladstone.
