PLAINFIELD, NJ - JMF Properties and the City of Plainfield will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the Quin Sleepy Hollow residential development located at 1400 South Avenue on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

Plainfield Mayor Adrian O. Mapp, members of the Plainfield City Council, and JMF Properties will break ground on Quin Sleepy Hollow, an ambitious $50 million residential community. This project is the largest residential development ever in Plainfield.

“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.

The completion date is expected to be in 2018 or 2019.
