Journal Square’s Le Léo has quickly found its mark in Jersey City’s crowded rental market with an impressive 75% of its 99 apartments leased since a late-fall debut.
Park Stone Management and Fields Grade developed the new six-story rental building at 244 St. Paul’s Avenue, just minutes from the Journal Square PATH Station with direct service to Manhattan. With an ultra-convenient location, a complete amenity package and modern residences with upscale finishes and appointments, Le Léo has tapped into the strong public demand for a high quality, boutique lifestyle that embraces the growing appeal of Journal Square.
“Journal Square is fast becoming Jersey City’s premier lifestyle destination with plenty of brand new and fashionable residential options,” said Jonathan Feifer, Founder/Owner of Park Stone Management. “We’re delighted that Le Léo has been incredibly well received in a competitive market where demand is high and inventory is sparse. This building has drawn both Jersey City locals and neighborhood newcomers who appreciate its contemporary design, luxury homes, lively environment and great location.”
Designed by MHS Architecture, Le Léo features well-designed apartments with nine-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring, 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.
Studio, one- and two-bedroom homes at Le Léo start in the mid-$2,500’s with limited time incentives that include up to two months free, according to The Marketing Directors, the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent. Immediate occupancy is available.
Enhancing Le Léo residents’ lifestyle is a wide offering of thoughtful amenities and social spaces. These include a welcoming lobby lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio, resident lounge, and co-working space with a conference room. An outdoor rooftop terrace features private dining areas and BBQs, sun loungers, a misting station, and firepits with seating. Conveniences include an outdoor dog run, resident storage, bike storage, and enclosed garage parking.
Residents and the community at large also appreciate having local favorite Choc-O-Pain French Bakery + Café located in the building’s street-level retail space and integrated into the lobby lounge.
“Le Léo’s amenity spaces were designed to foster community and encourage socialization among residents while also providing areas for remote working,” added Robert Caulfield, a Partner at Fields Grade. “Incorporating Choc-O-Pain into the lobby enhances the resident experience and creates a connection to the neighborhood.”
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.
The rebirth of Journal Square is clear by the seemingly endless array of lifestyle activities available in the neighborhood. The widely known 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 cafes, and plenty of shops, boutiques and community activities such as the JSQ Farmers Market and annual Bergen Square Day.
