One William taps into new rental demand and Englewood appeal with 40 percent of its residences already leased

Upscale Finishes, Lifestyle Amenities and Vibrant Walkable Setting Drive Activity


Strong demand for new luxury rental residences and the growing appeal of downtown Englewood as a vibrant residential destination have led to a successful Grand Opening at One William, where just over 40 percent of its 185 residences have already been leased.

The impressive milestone comes just six weeks after One William launched to the public with a combination of modern residences, exciting indoor and outdoor amenities and a convenient location in the heart of the walkable town center.

Jointly developed by BNE Real Estate Group and Sterling Properties, two well-respected real estate firms with a long history of creating signature residential communities in the state’s most desirable settings, One William features a collection of one- and two-bedroom residences with monthly rents starting at $2,350, with one month free on a 13-month lease.  Immediate occupancy is available.  The Marketing Directors is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

“We were confident there was a market here for new, stylish residences in a location that’s just steps from dining, shopping, cultural and recreational offerings, as well as convenient access to New York City,” said Jonathan Schwartz, a partner at BNE Real Estate Group. “The public’s response to One William and its spirited leasing activity is bearing that out.”

Located at 1 William Street, just off of W. Palisade Avenue, One William delivers 185 rental residences to Englewood’s cosmopolitan setting.  Found throughout the five-story building are well-appointed residences, some with private balconies and terraces.

Community amenities are designed to entertain residents inside and outdoors, fostering interaction with their neighbors.  The rooftop pool terrace features a swimming pool with lounge seating, a fire pit, private barbecue stations with dining areas, an outdoor bar with TV, and an expansive lawn area for relaxation. A landscaped courtyard has an additional lawn area, outdoor gaming spaces and lounge seating.

Residents also enjoy a private fitness center with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training equipment, a Wi-Fi lounge with work stations and conference rooms, and a club room with lounge seating, a poker table, shuffleboard, and an indoor/outdoor bar. A separate lobby level lounge includes a coffee bar, billiards, seating areas, and a bar.

The smoke-free, pet-friendly community offers a 24/7 concierge, 24/7 onsite maintenance, package acceptance, bicycle storage and onsite parking.

“One William is an exciting new residential option that complements all that this vibrant downtown setting has to offer,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors.  “It’s an energy-infused lifestyle experience that is quickly appealing to a wide range of residents.”

In addition to the lively local dining and shopping scene, the Bergen Performing Arts Center is just three blocks away from One William, offering more than 200 world-class performances throughout the year across the entire spectrum of the performing arts, including rock, classical, dance, and comedy, as well as educational programs. Mackay Park is one block away, with its walking trails, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, and an ice skating rink. Just a short drive down the street, the Palisades Interstate Park features hiking, picnicking, boat launches, and stunning clifftop vistas.

Commuter convenience is also a hallmark of One William’s location, with Routes 4, 80, and 9W; the New Jersey Turnpike, the Palisades Parkway, and the George Washington Bridge all less than 10 minutes away. The NJ Transit 166 bus route stops three blocks away from One William and provides a 45-minute commute to Port Authority.
