Foley Square at Murray Hill to Welcome First New Residents This Spring

March 31, 2014 at 9:24 AM

MURRAY HILL, NJ – Construction is progressing rapidly and contracts are being accepted on Foley Square at Murray Hill, a new community of 22 townhomes being built on South Street in Murray Hill by Foley Square at Murray Hill, LLC, based in Summit. In the next few weeks, the first buyers will be moving into this community.

“Reaction to our newly furnished model unit has been tremendous. We recently had a very busy grand opening,” said Michele DiBenedetto, sales associate with the New Providence office of Prudential New Jersey Properties and listing agent for Foley Square at Murray Hill. “We currently have seven contracts and the first three buyers will be moving into their places in April.”

The architectural firm responsible for Foley Square at Murray Hill is Kapuscinski-Luongo Architects. Part of that firm’s intention with Foley Square has been to design the homes to fit in with the landscape of its surroundings and maintain a connection to the colonial style prevalent in many of the homes in New Providence and Murray Hill.

“There was no better firm for this project,” DiBenedetto said. “Their work reflects the integrity of the community and their design sense is impeccable.”

Six different layouts are available at Foley Square at Murray Hill, each featuring an open floor plan. Pricing begins at $699,000. Luxury features include gourmet kitchens with choices of granite counters, KitchenAid Stainless Steel appliances and choices of wood cabinetry. Master bedroom suites feature full baths with double vanities, soaking tubs, separate shower stalls and walk-in closets. Many models have a fireplace and dressing room in the master suite, as well. Additional features include fireplaces in the great room, a finished lower level, two-car garage, classic moldings, hardwood floors, recessed lighting and optional personal elevators.

Howard Weinerman, a principal of Foley Square at Murray Hill, LLC, developer of the project, was on hand to greet people at the open house and answer questions that prospective buyers might have. “Foley Square includes seven separate parcels of property that we needed to acquire to make this project a reality," Weinerman said. "It took over three years to acquire all the necessary land and another two years to make this project a reality. We envision Foley Square will meet the needs of everyone from first time buyers, commuters to Manhattan, to empty nesters, who want to change where they live but maintain many of the amenities and comforts of a beautiful home.” 

Foley Square at Murray Hill LLC and its principals have been prominent developers in New Jersey for more than 25 years.

“The developers are committed to quality construction at a luxury level,” DiBenedetto said. “The customizable aspect of these units appeal to buyers today. Each buyer has the opportunity to meet with designers to select cabinetry, granite and tile. Personal elevators are another option since there are three living levels in each unit.”

The community is within walking distance of the Murray Hill Train Station, the New Providence business district and area schools.

Which is Best: Lump Sum or Pension Annuity?

Is a lump sum offer from an employer a better choice than a pension annuity for life? The former provides an immediate up-front amount (say $300,000), but the pension annuity gives you a stream of payments for life (example: $1,350 per month). A number of employers dangle a lump sum offer to employees in part to remove future liabilities from their balance sheets. It’s tempting for ...
