SKYE LOFTS SOUTH OPENS IN BAYONNE, NJ WITH LUXURY RENTALS STEPS FROM HUDSON-BERGEN LIGHT RAIL

SkyeLofts 02Skye Lofts South, a new luxury, loft-style rental building in the heart of Bayonne’s residential renaissance, has launched its rental program, furthering this Hudson County city’s emergence as a sought-after New Jersey Gold Coast destination.

The distinctive six–story building delivers modern amenities and a collection of 90 one- and two-bedroom residences with open floor plans, soaring living spaces and upscale finishes to an ultra-convenient location.  Skye Lofts South’s 250 Avenue E address places residents in the heart of the neighborhood’s shopping, dining, parks and year-round community events, as well as just steps from the 22nd Street Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Station with service to neighboring Jersey City and Hoboken.  Monthly rents start at $1,890 with 1 month free on a 13-month leaseImmediate occupancy available.

Skye Lofts South officially debuted with a special ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Bayonne Mayor James M. Davis, fellow municipal officials and principals of Skye Development, LLC, which tapped The Marketing Directors as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.  Guests were provided tours of the building’s furnished model homes, lifestyle amenities and onsite leasing center.

“Bayonne has long been on the cusp of becoming the next Gold Coast hotspot,” said Mitchell Burakovsky, president of locally-based Skye Development, LLC.  “While it’s located adjacent to Jersey City, it offers a quieter, less-densely-developed residential setting than its northern neighbor, yet still provides a walkable downtown with shops, dining, nightlife and services.  Our location next to the 22nd Street Light Rail Station also enables residents to conveniently access Jersey City, Hoboken and Manhattan via reliable public transportation.  Skye Lofts South takes full advantage of this location with a modern lifestyle offering at attractive prices that we believe will resonate with today’s renter.”

Designed by DAL Design Group, Skye Lofts South boasts an eye-catching exterior with mixed brick and panel façade with stucco accents.

Stylish residences feature expansive layouts with 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 will 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,” added Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors.  “It’s a compelling offering that will appeal to local residents, as well as those considering other markets such as Jersey City, Hoboken and Harrison.”

Ideally situated at 250 Avenue E, Skye Lofts South is perfectly situated between the local boutiques, shops, dining and services along the historic Broadway corridor and brand name retail outlets, such as Bayonne Crossing and South Cove Commons, located right off Route 440.  The building is directly behind the 22nd Street Light Rail which delivers residents to PATH trains into New York City, as well as the entertainment, nightlife and cultural pursuits along the Hudson River Gold Coast.  There’s also easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Routes 78 and 440 and the Holland Tunnel.
