Wyldes in Harrison attains 75% leasing milestone just 6 months after opening

An impressive 75% of the 399 residences at the Wyldes in Harrison have been leased just six months after opening, marking an unprecedented rental pace for the Hudson County town.

Situated within the Riverbend District, a transformative 35-acre neighborhood along the banks of the Passaic River adjacent to the Harrison PATH Station and just 10 miles from New York City, the Wyldes is the third property developed by Advance Realty Investors in the area.

The notable leasing milestone provides evidence of the neighborhood’s evolution into a vibrant residential destination, one that is more and more attracting residents from surrounding New York metro areas.

Data from the Marketing Directors, the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for the Wyldes, which also directed the lease-ups of its sister properties, Steel Works and Cobalt Lofts, supports the neighborhood’s maturation. According to recent figures, a 38% increase in leasing velocity compared with one of the earlier properties over the same time frame highlights the district’s growing appeal.

The Wyldes has unequivocally increased its appeal to renters in neighboring urban locals, with almost 35% of its lessees being former residents of Jersey City or Queens.

“The success of the Wyldes suggests a clear shift in the mindset of today’s urban renter. Now, more than ever, they are looking to leave behind exorbitant rents and head to locations where they can find luxury buildings on par with those found in Manhattan, Jersey City or Long Island City, along with commuter convenience. Harrison, and the Riverbend District in particular, has clearly emerged as a destination of choice,” Jaqueline Urgo, president of the Marketing Directors, said.

Designed by MHS Architecture, the Wyldes features a collection of well-appointed studios, one- and two-bedroom homes priced from the mid-$2,000s and offered with limited-time grand opening incentives, including up to two months’ free rent.

Modern finishes and appointments include luxury plank flooring, Bosch in-home washer/dryers, integrated millwork home office nooks with floating shelving in most homes, along with kitchens offering GE stainless steel appliances, designer cabinetry and quartz countertops.
