325 Ferry Street, a brand new collection of 91 luxury rental residences in Newark’s bustling North Ironbound neighborhood, will debut to the public in mid-March, the community’s developer announced today.

As the latest example of Newark’s revitalization, 325 Ferry Street will provide its residents with upscale amenities, plush living spaces, a high-tech/energy-efficient lifestyle experience, and a private daily shuttle to and from both Newark Penn Station and the Harrison PATH Station, in a thriving neighborhood with a Walk Score of 94, more than 170 restaurants and 570 businesses. It will include street-level retail that will be occupied by a 5,000 square-foot sports bar, a Neapolitan Express Pizzeria, and a pet grooming salon.

Renters at 325 Ferry Street will choose from a variety of one-bedroom and two-bedroom layouts, offering up to 1,116 square feet of living space. Prices will start from $1,750 for one bedrooms and $2,303 for two bedrooms.

“325 Ferry Street will offer finely-crafted living spaces in one of the most exciting, unique neighborhoods in New Jersey, and that is something we are really looking forward to,” said T. Gary Gutjahr, who is developing the property along with his partner J. Gordon Gutjahr. “We are proud to offer our future residents an exceptional lifestyle with access to shops, restaurants, nightlife and mass-transit.”

Influenced by the many different ethnic groups who inhabited the neighborhood throughout the 19th, 20th and 21stcenturies, North Ironbound is a prosperous, close-knit urban neighborhood teeming with culture. It is popular for its Portuguese bakeries, Brazilian steakhouses, upscale seafood restaurants and street festivals. Ferry Street is the neighborhood’s main artery, home to hundreds of unique businesses that contribute to the local flavor.

325 Ferry Street will put residents in the heart of it all, just a short, five-minute private shuttle ride from both Newark Penn Station and the Harrison PATH station, where commuters are whisked to the World Trade Center in about 20 minutes, and to 33rd Street in about 32 minutes via transfer.

Seven distinct apartment designs will be available at 325 Ferry Street, ranging in size from 638 to 1,116 square feet of living space.

Four one-bedroom, one-bath home designs will offer open floorplan living and master bedrooms with huge walk-in closets. Most will also include private outdoor balconies. Select floorplans will include a den. Monthly rental rates for the one-bedroom residences will start from $1,750.

The apartments will be serviced by GIGXERO™ unlimited gigabit internet, an ultra-fast connection designed to offer users reliability, flexibility, security, and unmatched internet speeds up to 20 times faster than a standard 50-megabytes-per-second connection. Residents who choose to use the service will be able to use multiple devices, stream television or videos, work from home, play games and enjoy an overall superior internet experience through the provider’s pure state-of-the-art data network.

Found throughout the homes at 325 Ferry Street will be elevated nine-foot ceilings, expansive windows with opaque shades in living areas and room darkening shades in bedrooms, fully-insulated double walls and solid core doors for sound suppression, designer vinyl plank flooring, and ceramic tile in kitchen and baths. Chef-inspired gourmet kitchens will include quartz countertops, oversized peninsulas that seat four, undercabinet task lighting, GE stainless steel appliances, and a separate dinette area in most units.

A full washer and gas dryer, high-efficiency air conditioning and gas heating furnace, and bedroom walk-in closets with shelf and rods will be included in every residence.

“For more than 20 years, we have built custom, luxury homes in some of the most desirable locations in northern New Jersey, and now we are applying the same custom approach and meticulous attention to detail to the development of 325 Ferry Street,” J. Gordon Gutjahr said. “We look forward to providing our residents with an exceptional lifestyle experience and to launching a mixed-use building that contributes to the overall vitality of the neighborhood.”

In addition to the private VIP shuttle service, residents will enjoy a full complement of amenities designed to enhance their lifestyle. Amenities will include a custom fitness studio with cardio and weightlifting equipment, a relaxing lounge with flat screen TV, Wi-Fi, coffee bar, and fireplace, and a beautiful outdoor patio with seating and picnic area, fire pit and games.

A smart and secure phone and residence app will manage the entrance system. 325 Ferry Street will be a pet-friendly community.

325 Ferry Street was designed with a walkable lifestyle and the day-to-day convenience of residents in mind. A full-service grocery store and new CVS will be located just steps from residents’ front door. Other nearby destinations include the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the Prudential Center, home to a number of sporting events and concerts held throughout the year.
