Quin Sleepy Hollow, the premier luxury rental community that’s been rising along South Avenue in the emerging transit village of Plainfield, New Jersey, has opened its leasing office doors and is ready to turn heads. The building’s ‘sneak peek’ leasing opportunity was recently announced by developer JMF Properties with a compelling value opportunity to live luxe for less through limited-time incentives. Inside, high-style apartments combine with over 10,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenities to respond to the growing demand for urban-style luxury in commuter-friendly locations along NJ Transit train lines.
Today, after much pent-up demand, Quin’s brand-new rental residences have finally hit the market, with one-bedroom layouts now available from the high $1700s, and two-bedrooms starting from the low $2200s and ranging to the high $2900s for the most spacious corner layouts. Floor-to-ceiling windows, two-toned European cabinetry, and top-of-the-line Kohler® fixtures are just some of the stand-out details that liken the project to condominium living along New Jersey’s Gold Coast. Den options, private garage parking and resident storage options are also available, as well as limited-time grand opening specials that make renting early a smart move.
“We designed Quin Sleepy Hollow to create a truly exceptional living experience that would embrace its unique setting and meaningfully connect with today’s renter,” said Joseph M. Forgione, Founder and Principal of JMF Properties. “This highly-desirable location afforded us an opportunity to respectfully blend a modern, city-style of living with an established residential neighborhood offering suburban appeal. We are pleased to announce the launch of leasing at the community, because we believe it is a one-of-a-kind combination that will resonate with today’s discerning renters.”
A multi-modal hub that’s well-served by two NJ Transit train stations—Netherwood and Fanwood Stations—Quin Sleepy Hollow’s ideal location will offer residents an easy commute on the Raritan Valley Line to Newark, Jersey City, Manhattan, and other locales along the Hudson waterfront. In addition, nine bus routes offer key access to-and-from major corporate centers spanning from Westfield to Somerville and throughout the region, with thirty-five buses offering direct service to Newark and thirty-nine buses headed for New York City on any given weekday. By car, the community offers easy access to many major highways, including Route 22, Route 78 and the Garden State Parkway.
A neighborhood that’s always been known as a place of connection, Plainfield is a tight-knit community steeped in culture and a unique sense of pride. Once hailed the “Queen City”, traces of Plainfield’s heyday glory are evident in its epic historical mansions set upon wide-set suburban lots, built during the first half of the twentieth century for wealthy Wall Street tycoons who enjoyed Plainfield as an easy and bucolic escape from the big city. Today, a recent cultural and economic revival has perfectly primed this residential gem for a renaissance. With an emerging downtown and an influx of new residential opportunities combining with the city’s proud traditions, such as its 100 year-old symphony orchestra, this marks a new chapter for Plainfield as a desirable place to live, work, and play.
“People choose to move to Plainfield for a variety of reasons,” said Jeff Spelman, owner of The Coffee Box, the specialty coffee shop located right across the street from Quin Sleepy Hollow. “We have a great urban and suburban mix. The city is hip and exciting with its urban energy, but it also has that suburban charm. We have beautiful homes and people are doing a lot of work to restore them. Perhaps the best part about living in Plainfield is we have the friendliest neighbors. When people move here they are thrilled with how quickly they are able to meet people and become a part of the fabric of the community.”
Surrounding Quin Sleepy Hollow, residents will enjoy walkable access to neighborhood shopping, dining and service businesses. In addition to The Coffee Box, a boutique fitness studio and a variety of eateries are all just a short walk from the community along South Avenue. Plainfield is home to a diverse array of restaurants that feature cuisine from all corners of the world, and just recently held its first Restaurant Week.
Just up the road, the neighborhood borders the boroughs of Fanwood and Scotch Plains, and is just a short drive from coveted downtown shopping and dining destinations such as Westfield and Cranford. A number of scenic recreational parks and golf courses are also nearby, including the Plainfield Country Club, home to PGA tour events and consistently ranked among the country’s top golf courses by Golf Digest magazine.
Although residents of Quin Sleepy Hollow will be connected to a variety of destinations that surround the neighborhood, spending time at home will also be an attractive option. The community boasts over 10,000 square feet of exclusive indoor/outdoor lifestyle amenities designed to enhance the experience of living well. They include a resident lounge with billiards, library, a theater/screening room, business center, state-of-the-art fitness center, meditation room, yoga and spin room with virtual fitness training, and more.
Outside, an outdoor lounge with double-sided fireplace, courtyard seating area, barbecue grills, and a bicycle library provide the perfect combination of indoor/outdoor living. The pet-friendly community will also feature a bark park. In addition, a newly-constructed park just next to the community on South Avenue will be home to future cultural events, local artist performances, and outdoor concerts. Additional conveniences and services include package concierge lockers and car charging stations.
