Alpine Residential and Fields Grade announce new eateries in Jersey City

Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood’s rapid ascent as one of the area’s most desirable new residential destinations has been bolstered recently by four new dining options within a series of mixed-use properties that have reshaped the neighborhood.

Slated to open in the months ahead are Eggs Up, a breakfast café in the 24-story Atlas rental high-rise at 270 Johnston St., and MochiDough/BoberTea, a premium Japanese donut and bubble tea shop in the Starling rental building at 66 Monitor St. — both of which will debut in August. They will be followed by the expected opening of Cheeky’s “New Orleans-style” sandwiches this fall in the Hazel at 89 Monitor St.

The new retailers will bring an even wider selection of everyday dining choices to residents of Bergen-Lafayette, which has welcomed mix of dining, café and shopping experiences in its transformation to a complete urban lifestyle neighborhood.

Renters within the Bergen Lafayette Collection will have immediate access to tasteful delights that range from coffee, baked goods and desserts to deli-style food options and fine dining. This includes the Roxy, a new venture between some of the team behind Corto in Jersey City Heights, which opened its doors this spring in Starling.

The Bergen Lafayette Collection is the creation of partners Alpine Residential and Fields Grade, two development firms committed to enriching Bergen-Lafayette with new rental buildings that boast world-class amenities and supportive street-level retail space. The Bergen Lafayette Collection will boast nearly 1,000 apartments housed in five mixed-use buildings that enrich the area and community.

“We are excited to welcome these new eateries to the Bergen Lafayette Collection,” William Rosato, managing partner of Alpine Residential, said. “They are important additions to a neighborhood that’s experienced significant growth over the past few years and become a hotbed of residential activity and new community services.”

South Oxford Management, Alpine’s affiliated management company, is directing the leasing and management of the Bergen Lafayette Collection.  Included in the Bergen Lafayette Collection are:

  • Atlas: The 24-story Atlas is the tallest building in Bergen-Lafayette and offers 169 studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences, of which 60% have been leased.
  • Starling: The boutique six-story rental building features just 39 studio to three-bedroom residences.
  • The Hazel Jersey City: A 201-home rental property located at 89 Monitor St.
  • Solaris Lofts: Located at 65 Maple St., the five-story rental building offers 72 residences.
  • Scholar’s Village: Liberty Science Center selected Alpine Residential to develop Scholars Village on the banks of Liberty State Park and in the heart of the SciTech Scity innovation hub. Slated to begin in the second quarter, the project will feature 500 design-forward residences and retail space.

Lying just west of Downtown Jersey City, Bergen-Lafayette has benefited from significant investment and city-backed infrastructure improvements, including the extension of Jersey Avenue for pedestrians, bicyclists and vehicular traffic that have created better connections to downtown, while existing light rail service links the neighborhood to PATH trains and ferry terminals and ultimately, Manhattan.

Anchoring the neighborhood is the Liberty Science Center with its ever-evolving interactive museum experience, and future SciTech Scity.
