Roseland Residential Trust Hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Newest Luxury Development, M2 at Marbella
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop Joins Roseland to Commemorate Completion of New Luxury Residential Community
Edison, New Jersey—June 23, 2016—Roseland Residential Trust, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI), today marked the grand opening for M2 at Marbella, the newest luxury residential building located in downtown Jersey City. Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop joined municipal and company officials to celebrate Roseland’s newest addition to the Jersey City market.
The 39-story luxury residential community, located at 401 Washington Boulevard, features 311 studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes, and joins Roseland’s existing Marbella community where residents will benefit from shared amenities, including a shared parking garage.
Fulop said the newest apartment community to open is yet another example of Jersey City’s emergence as a city where professionals come to enjoy a true live-work-play environment.
“Mack-Cali and its Roseland subsidiary have invested tremendous resources in both commercial and residential properties throughout Jersey City, including Mack-Cali’s own corporate headquarters, and we are grateful for that,” said Mayor Steven M. Fulop. “But more importantly, their investment in our neighborhoods and our communities speaks volumes about Mack-Cali’s faith that Jersey City can look forward to continued prosperity, continued development, and continued growth.”
As the newest addition to the Jersey City skyline, M2 at Marbella will provide residents with remarkable views of New York City and the Hudson Waterfront from the individual apartment homes as well as from the 800-square-foot rooftop terrace. The building features a wide variety of state-of-the-art amenities, including a 1,200-square-foot event room, as well as a sky lounge on the top floor of the building, a 1,700-square-foot club room with a lounge and billiard table, a conference room, two fitness centers with a yoga studio, a children’s playroom, an on-site concierge, an on-site dog run, and bike storage.
Andrew Marshall, president and chief operating officer of Roseland Residential Trust, shared his excitement for the addition of M2 to the luxury multi-family rental market in Jersey City.
“We are thrilled to have M2 at Marbella open its doors and add to Jersey City’s flourishing community,” said Marshall. “The community offers residents unrivaled views of New York City’s iconic skyline as well as proximity to numerous transit options. The host of amenities offered will provide enjoyment for every resident throughout the year.”
M2 is connected to Roseland’s existing residential community, Marbella, by a 16,000-square-foot landscaped roof deck with a pool, which will be accessible to residents of both luxury residential communities. In addition to the pool, the deck will provide residents with a variety of outdoor amenities to enjoy throughout the year, including a fireplace, fire pit, and outdoor grilling stations.
M2 is ideal for commuters due to its close proximity to various mass transportation services. The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is located on-site and provides commuters with access to Hoboken and Bayonne. Additionally, a NJ TRANSIT bus stop is directly across the street from the new residential community and the Newport PATH station, which provides commuters with train service to Manhattan and is less than ¼ mile north of the property. Convenient highway access from M2 is available to residents, and Newark Liberty International Airport is located approximately 10 miles away. Additionally, a wide variety of recreational activities, dining options, and shops, including the Newport Centre Mall, are all located within walking distance of M2, making this one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Jersey City.
