Half of the homes have either a balcony or patio and the front-facing units on the upper floors provide views of New York City’s skyline. The property, which was fully occupied at closing, also includes a 24-space parking garage plus two motorcycle parking spaces.
Ian Hafner, a principal with Spirit, further comments, “We’re excited to own this well maintained, boutique building in a great South Hoboken location. Given our reputation as dependable buyers who can move quickly, we were allowed to submit an offer before it hit the wider market and close quickly in a smooth transaction.”
