295J is a a new 309-unit rental building delivering stylish residences and thoughtfully curated amenities to the historic and culturally rich Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood in Jersey City, NJ. Developed by Ironstate Development Company in partnership with Brookfield and Landmark Development, the building adds a modern and respectful living alternative to the area's mosaic of re-purposed industrial buildings, eclectic bars and restaurants and existing street-art vibe.
Designed by BKSK Architects in partnership with Executive Architect Kitchen & Associates, the new five-story steel-and-brick-clad building references the industrial style of the immediate area, with variations in the materials breaking the massing down to a residential scale.
Inside, the interiors continue to reflect industrial cues from the neighborhood. The lobby serves as a refined living room, where walls display large pieces of art tied back to the local artist community. Residential corridors are softened with moments of artistic graphic wall coverings unique to each floor, and doors are accentuated with dark grey full height surrounds and pinspot lighting displaying brass apartment numbers.
A collection of stylishly appointed studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts feature keyless entrance technology, large windows to maximize natural light, kitchens with modern Whirlpool appliances and Caesarstone grey countertops, in-home Whirlpool washer/dryers and individual heating/cooling systems.
Shared amenity and social spaces designed to foster natural opportunities for residents to meet and interact include an art-filled lobby with 24/7 Concierge service and Amazon lockers, a fully equipped fitness center, and The Study, a cozy resident lounge ideal for working at home.
Outside, a heavily landscaped courtyard by Belgian landscape designers at Bureau Bas Smets is home to a pool, BBQ grills, fire pits and ping pong. The pet-friendly building also features a dog-wash station and a rooftop dog run with views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.
