First Look: Jersey City’s Le Léo Luxury Rental Debuts Modern Amenities and Social Spaces

A full suite of indoor amenities has been unveiled at Le Léo, the new luxury rental building that is now over 50% leased in Jersey City’s historic Journal Square.

The curated recreational and social spaces include a welcoming lobby lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, resident lounge, co-working space with a conference room and game room with flat screens, a foosball table, a shuffleboard table, a poker table and lounge area.  Residents will also appreciate having local favorite Choc-O-Pain French Bakery + Café integrated into the six-story building’s design.  The popular Hudson County café is now open in the street-level retail space at Le Léo with direct access for residents from the lobby lounge, fostering a boutique, hotel-like experience.

Le Léo also features an outdoor rooftop terrace with private dining areas and BBQs, sun loungers, a misting station, and firepits with lounge seating.  Other conveniences include an outdoor dog run, resident storage, bike storage, and enclosed garage parking.

Developed by Fields Grade and Park Stone Management, Le Léo is located at 244 St. Pauls Avenue, just a short walk from the Journal Square PATH Station and centrally located in a culturally-rich, well-connected neighborhood.    

“We’re excited to fully unveil Le Léo’s amenity spaces which are designed to foster community and encourage socialization among residents while also providing areas for remote working,” said Robert Caulfield, a Fields Grade principal.  “Incorporating Choc-O-Pain into the lobby enhances the resident experience and creates a connection to the neighborhood.”

Le Leo offers a collection of 99 studio, one- and two-bedroom homes starting in the $2,400’s with Grand Opening incentives that include one month free, according to The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.  Immediate occupancy is available. 

Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Le Léo features well-designed apartments with nine-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring, in-home washer and dryer, and lavish kitchens with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, full-height backsplashes, soft-close cabinetry, and under-cabinet lighting.  Sumptuous baths are outfitted with porcelain tile floors and full-height tiled walls.

“Le Léo is quickly resonating with residents who are looking for a more boutique lifestyle experience in a full-service building with great access to this vibrant neighborhood,” said Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, noting that occupancy is well underway at the building.  “For them, Le Léo checks all the boxes.”

Situated just off John F. Kennedy Boulevard, Le Léo is less than a ten-minute walk to the neighborhood’s extensive transportation network anchored by PATH service to lower and midtown Manhattan, Jersey City, Hoboken and Newark.  NJ TRANSIT and private buses also serve the neighborhood daily, providing convenient access to major employment and recreation centers on both sides of the Hudson River.

Journal Square offers an ever-expanding array of lifestyle activities.  The heralded Mana Contemporary arts center offers visual and performing arts programming and exhibitions, and entertainment and culture are soon to be found at the restored Loew’s Theatre and much anticipated Parisian museum, Centre De Pompidou.  There’s also an eclectic offering of restaurants, bakeries and cafés, and plenty of shops, boutiques and community activities such as the JSQ Farmers Market and annual Bergen Square Day.
