JLL closed the $31.9 million sale of Solaris Lofts, a 72-unit, newly constructed, boutique multihousing community in Jersey City, New Jersey.

JLL Capital Markets announced that it has closed the $31.9 million sale of Solaris Lofts, a 72-unit, newly constructed, boutique multihousing community located within the Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood in Jersey City, New Jersey.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, PERE. Beachwold Residential LLC acquired the asset.

Built in 2019, the five-story Solaris Lofts features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with nine-foot ceilings, casement loft windows, white oak flooring, in-unit washers and dryers, exposed concrete walls and ceilings, solid birch kitchen cabinets and stainless-steel appliances. Community amenities include electric car charging stations, a fleet of deluxe commuter bicycles, purified water bottle filling station, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a yoga room with daily classes, on-site dog park and dog run, a resident lounge and co-working areas, on-site gourmet grocery and deli, roof deck with views of Manhattan skyline and on-site parking.

Situated at 65 Maple St., the property’s location allows convenient access to the Hudson Waterfront, Manhattan and the greater New York MSA. Mass transit can be accessed via the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail at Liberty State Park station, which is one block from the property. Additionally, Interstate 78 is less than one-half mile away and provides vehicular connectivity to Interstate 95 (NJ Turnpike), the Hudson Waterfront and the Lincoln and Holland Tunnel within five minutes. In addition to Solaris Lofts’ impressive regional accessibility, the property offers walkability to local amenities such as Liberty State Park, the Liberty Science Center and multiple restaurants and bars within a five-block radius.

The JLL Capital Markets Investment Advisory team representing the seller was led by Michael Oliver, Jose Cruz, Steve Simonelli, Kevin O’Hearn and Josh Stein.

“Jersey City and the Hudson Waterfront have seen an incredible bounce back since the heart of Covid, with increased occupancies, limited concessions and strong rent growth. Solaris Lofts is a beautiful boutique building in a burgeoning neighborhood of Jersey City. The Beachwold team will be able to leverage off their existing portfolio in the area and see continued success with this new investment,” stated Oliver.
