RiversEdge and Giants receiver Devin Thomas
New York Giants wide receiver Devin Thomas is the latest athlete to move into the RiversEdge at Port Imperial rental building in Weehawken, N.J., according to a source with knowledge of the deal.

Thomas inked a 12-month, $5,000 per month lease for an approximately 1,400-square-foot, two-bedroom corner unit, the source said, declining to indicate the floor for privacy reasons. Thomas moved in in mid-October.

The nine-story, 236-unit complex is a popular choice for athletes in the New York area because it is proximal to the city, but doesn’t pose the same traffic problems for players traveling to games and practices as New York City would, the source said. The building has a heated outdoor pool and waterfall, a fitness center and spa, a clubroom with a big-screen TV and a conference room.

The Giants signed the 24-year-old wideout off of waivers last November, and he was living in a hotel near the Meadowlands where the Giants typically put up their players.

As The Real Deal previously reported, New York Yankee pitchers Rafael Soriano and Boone Logan are also tenants of the building. According to national real estate search site, monthly rents for two-bedroom units in the building range from about $3,300 to $4,700.

Gershon Adjaye of Keller Williams NYC represented Thomas in the transaction, in a direct deal with the in-house leasing office for RiversEdge. A leasing spokesperson declined to comment, as did Adjaye. Thomas declined to comment through a Giants spokesperson.
