HOBOKEN NJ - Mile Square Early Learning Center (E.L.C.), a provider of pre-kindergarten educational programs, is set to open its doors at 770 Jackson Street. The 14,032 square feet of ground-floor retail space is located inside the 7 Seventy House, a new luxury rental building developed by locally based Bijou Properties and partner Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation on the Hudson County city’s western edge.
The location will be Mile Square's sixth in Hoboken, joining existing operations already located at Calabro, Rue, Wallace, and St. Francis schools. Once completed, the new school will house 12 classrooms, as well as the business and administrative offices for Mile Square E.L.C. in a convenient location just steps from the 9th Street Light Rail Station. The new learning facility is also adjacent to a new two-acre park at 7th and Jackson Streets that was built and donated to the City of Hoboken by Bijou Properties and Intercontinental.
Mile Square Early Learning Center, established in 1979, offers neighborhood children and their parents daily, dependable, and safe early childhood educational experiences in the Hoboken Public School District Early Childhood Program.
Mile Square E.L.C will be the second business to occupy retail space at 7 Seventy House. Prime Time Cleaners, a locally owned dry cleaner, opened the doors to its second Hudson County location at the 424-home rental building earlier this summer.
“We’re delighted to have executed a lease with Mile Square E.L.C. which will bring another critical community asset to Hoboken’s burgeoning west side,” said Larry Bijou, Managing Partner of Bijou Properties. “Smart, well-planned multifamily development creates opportunities for community building through new retail and service providers, parks and recreational space, and infrastructure improvements that benefit the entire neighborhood.”
In addition to the retail space, 7 Seventy House features a collection of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with rents starting in the $2,600's, that sit beside a two-acre resiliency park at 7th and Jackson Street that has added much-needed public green space to the city’s burgeoning west side neighborhood.
