7 Seventy House is defying the odds in Hudson County’s rental market, recording a high level of spring velocity that’s propelled the luxury new. apartment building in Hoboken, N.J. past the notable mark of 70% leased.

While much of New Jersey’s Hudson River “Gold Coast” has experienced slowed activity as the coronavirus pandemic took hold, The Marketing Directors, the exclusive leasing and marketing agent at 7 Seventy House, has reported steady leasing at the 424-home building. The uninterrupted pace has been fueled by the large pool of renters exclusively seeking brand new apartments, and the implementation of a comprehensive digital presentation that allows prospects to remotely view 7 Seventy House with one-on-one interactive virtual tours of the fully-furnished model apartments and world-class amenities.  

The newsworthy leasing mark was achieved simultaneously with another significant milestone at 7 Seventy House. Developer Bijou Properties and partner Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation have announced the building is now over 50% occupied.

“7 Seventy House was a tremendous success before social distancing guidelines were implemented, and it’s no surprise this trend has continued since we transitioned to a digital leasing presentation,” says Jaqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors. 

“The building is well-equipped to provide all the attributes a renter seeks in this new day and age.  The apartments provide open and functional layouts that have never been lived in before. 7 Seventy House also features ample outdoor space for residents to enjoy, whether it’s the private balconies or terraces offered in select homes, the roof deck and multiple gardens found throughout the building, or the public park and plaza located right outside its doors. The ability to offer so much space inside and out has been a strong contributor to our popularity.”
