PLAINFIELD, NJ - This Saturday, JMF Properties and the City of Plainfield will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at 10:00 a.m. for the $50 million Quin Sleepy Hollow residential development located at 1400 South Avenue.  The completion date is expected to be in 2018/2019.

Here's a look at how this all came about, thanks to Plaintalker II:

“There is no clearer representation of the renaissance that is underway in the City of Plainfield than this bold and innovative project,” stated Mayor Adrian O. Mapp. “It represents one of the single largest investments in the history of our city. This project will not only transform a large blighted property into a vibrant residential community, but it will also revitalize a major corridor and spur additional retail and economic development. I am grateful that JMF Properties chose to invest in our resurgent city.”

The 212-unit rental development is located at 1400 South Avenue, just a short distance from the Netherwood Train Station. It is aimed at renters who will appreciate the low-maintenance, transit-friendly, amenity-rich lifestyle, including young professionals and empty nesters, with residences ranging in size from 900 square feet to 1,200 square feet. Each unit will include upscale amenities such as stainless steel appliances, vinyl wood flooring, quartz countertops, and chef kitchens. They will also be equipped with high speed internet and keyless entry.

In order to further enhance residents’ lives, a full suite of on-site lifestyle amenities will be available including a club room with a common kitchen, a community room/business center with wireless internet, a billiards room, a theater/multimedia room, a yoga studio, a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment and Fitness On Demand virtual trainers, as well as outdoor grills, open-air lounge seating, an indoor/outdoor fireplace, and a dog park. A bike share program and an electric car charging station will encourage residents to enjoy their surroundings in a healthier and more environmentally-friendly manner.

Quin Sleepy Hollow was designed with an “inside-out approach”, according to Joseph M. Forgione, the Founder and Principal of JMF Properties. It’s an alternative approach to property development that places resident experience at the heart of the development and design process.

“Our goal is to offer not only a collection of luxury apartments, but an entire lifestyle experience that truly enhances the wellbeing of our residents,” Mr. Forgione stated. “I’d like to thank Mayor Mapp and the Plainfield City Council for working with us as we carry out our vision for this exceptional community.”

Located near two NJ Transit train stations and several major highways, Quin Sleepy Hollow will be incredibly convenient for commuters. Both the Netherwood Train Station and Fanwood Train Station are less than a mile away, offering direct weekday service to midtown Manhattan in about an hour. The Garden State Parkway, Route 22, Route 78 and Route 287 are all easily accessible. Plainfield’s charming Sleepy Hollow neighborhood is just steps away, known for its stately homes and mansions, large property lots, and winding tree-lined streets.

The project’s expected completion date is winter 2018/2019.
