BAYONNE, NJ - Bayonne’s newest modern luxury living opportunity was on full display July 21 as local elected officials, business leaders, realtors, and more joined developer Dimitris Vattes for a ceremonial, and socially distanced, ribbon cutting.

Located at 477 Broadway, the completion of the eight-story, 72-unit building marked the completion of an incredible transformation of a lot that has stood vacant for more than 20 years after a massive blaze claimed the site’s former business.

Vattes reported that a few tenants had already signed leases and another completed an application that night, after taking a virtual tour, a sign, he said, that interest was increasing by the day among young professionals eager to live a “city lifestyle in a vibrant business district that still has small town charm.”

Indeed, with a mix of studio, one, and two-bedroom options, the sleek design and layout of each unit, as well as a mix of amenities unrivaled in other Bayonne projects, B22 has set out to raise the bar when it comes to urban living.

Vattes listed, and then showed off, a rooftop bar with views that sweep across the Peninsula City and then the New York skyline, a state-of-the-art wellness center, a communal residents lounge and business center for those who have made the transition to remote working, and more.

With parking both onsite and in an adjacent lot, as well as easy access to public transportation, commuting life will be easier for those that decide to call B22 home.

“We are in the heart of Bayonne’s central business district,” Vattes said, adding that even in the midst of a health emergency was still vibrant on a Tuesday evening. “Bayonne is getting healthier every day, not just from COVID-19 but also years of inaction.”

“Today’s leaders like Mayor Davis have a vision and a plan to bring their city back to its glory days, we are glad to be a part of that, and perhaps offer a modern twist to it.”
