Manhattan amenities come to Jersey City

In a bid to compete with the ever-pricier Manhattan apartment market, Jersey City is adding Manhattan-esque amenities to the buildings rising there, the New York Post reported.

For instance, Madox, a new rental building slated to open this fall, will be the first LEED-certified residential building in Jersey City and the first one to be “smoke-free,” the Post said.

The Warren at York is rising in the same neighborhood, known as Paulus Hook. “We’re going to have a gym, a media lounge, a pool table, a movie screen, sitting areas and a green roof,” Jonathan Schwartz, an executive at BNE Real Estate Group, which is developing the Warren, told the Post.

Prices in the neighborhood remain at about $30 or $40 per square foot, however, despite the recent spate of building, the Post said. [Post]
