“The best of both worlds” is a phrase often uttered by residents of Bayonne when describing the bedroom community’s unique mix of a city feel with a small-town vibe. With local store owners who know their customers by name or face and families that seemingly stay in town for generations, Bayonne offers a level of intimacy not commonly found in a setting so close to New York City, and one that is embraced by long-term and new residents alike.
But Bayonne is evolving as well, with new businesses popping up on Broadway, the city’s vibrant commercial strip that’s lined with vintage bakeries, newsstands, diners and pubs. And a new breed of modern residential development is taking flight as well, bringing apartments with luxury finishes and exciting amenities on par with neighboring Gold Coast locations like Jersey City and Hoboken. Skye Lofts South is a prime example.
With an ideal location at 250 Avenue E across from the 22nd Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail station, Skye Lofts South opened its doors to renters in September with a collection of one- and two-bedroom loft-style rental residences that marries modern design and amenities with a walkable neighborhood near shops, restaurants, parks, cultural attractions and other popular local destinations. Residents can also take advantage of the convenient light rail service to Jersey City and Hoboken, as well as Manhattan with links to PATH trains and ferries. Renters have been quick to adopt the new lifestyle option, with an impressive 35% of the 90 residences having already been leased.
“We wanted to introduce a new style of living here that would embrace and enhance everything that is so appealing about Bayonne,” said Mitchell Burakovsky, president of locally-based Skye Development, LLC, which tapped The Marketing Directors as the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent. “We felt this style of living would resonate with today’s renter, and we’re delighted that many have already decided to call Skye Lofts South home.”
The attractive six-story building offers a boutique atmosphere with stylish residences that boast open floor plans with soaring living spaces and upscale finishes. Interior design elements include 10’ceiling heights, hardwood plank flooring, and custom kitchens with Frigidaire stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops, two-toned cabinetry and Kohler faucets. Lavish baths are adorned with porcelain tiled floors, recessed mirrored medicine cabinets and custom vanities. Some residences offer private balconies or patios.
Residents at Skye Lofts South also enjoy a private suite of recreational and social amenities that includes a lobby lounge, resident-only lounge, fitness center, bike storage, private storage and available enclosed parking.
The location of Skye Lofts South provides residents with convenient access to Bayonne’s historic Broadway corridor, as well as brand name retail outlets such as Bayonne Crossing and South Cove Commons, located right off of Route 440. Its location directly across the street from the 22nd Street Light Rail station helps minimize commute times and keep residents connected to a number of destinations along the Hudson River Gold Coast. There’s also easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Routes 78 and 440 and the Holland Tunnel.
Monthly rents at Skye Lofts start at $1,890, with 1 month free on a 13-month lease. Immediate occupancy is available. For additional information or to schedule an appointment to tour the model homes and amenities, please visit www.skyelofts.com or call 201-823-3250.
