Leasing is now open at Starling in Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood, where developers Alpine Residential and Fields Grade have blended historic preservation with contemporary development to create a boutique living experience.
Located at 66 Monitor St., just a stone’s throw away from Liberty State Park, the six-story rental building features just 39 studio to three-bedroom residences, along with a curated collection of artwork and inspired amenities. Street-level retail spaces will soon be home to MochiDough/BoberTea, a premium Japanese donut and bubble tea shop, and the Roxy, a new venture from some of the team behind Corto in Jersey City Heights.
Monthly rents for the homes begin from $2,690 with limited time grand opening incentives that include up to two months free. Initial occupancy is slated for February.
In conjunction with the opening, the developers have launched a website where prospective residents can schedule a private tour of the building’s furnished model homes and amenities.
Starling’s leasing program and management is handled by Alpine’s affiliated management company, South Oxford Management.
“Starling caters to those desiring a more intimate living experience while still enjoying a robust suite of amenities and all that Bergen-Lafayette has to offer,” William Rosato, managing partner of Alpine Residential, said. “The property is also infused with the local culture, displaying an art collection that captures the imaginative spirit found on the streets of Jersey City.”
With architecture by GRT Architects, Starling artfully fuses modern aesthetics with historic charm, paying homage to its past through the careful preservation of a century-old building’s façade that once adorned the site. The restored exterior is joined inside by a dramatic double-height lobby that features reclaimed trusses and wood finishes salvaged from its original structure. These elements were also repurposed to craft furniture found throughout the property’s common spaces.
