Penthouse at LeFrak’s Ellipse becomes Jersey City’s priciest rental listing

Four-bedroom unit listed for $10,995

The most expensive rental listing in Jersey City’s history just hit the market at $10,995 a month, The Real Deal has learned.

The unit is the largest of five penthouses at the Ellipse, LeFrak Organization’s 41-story elliptical tower in the the Newport neighborhood. The full-floor apartment spans 2,300 square feet and comes with four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a terrace with Manhattan views.

The listing has increased significantly in its short lifetime. When LeFrak launched leasing for the 381-unit building at 25 Park Lane South in April, prices started at $2,600 for a studio and peaked at $8,211 for the four-bedroom penthouses, according to a New York Times report.
