Less Expensive than Manhattan


Apartment communities are great places to make friends, to live in secure environments with doormen and ultimately live in a place where everything is taken care of for you. In addition, with many people working from home, at least part of the time, it is really nice to live in a complex where there is access to a fitness facility, bike storage, laundry facilities, parking garages and those which are also not far from mass transportation, especially in the greater New York tri-state area. In a lot of ways, higher end apartment complexes are like living in luxurious hotels. New Jersey has its fair share of these communities, and they cater to those that are looking for a little more than a place to hang their hat. The Aspire, in New Brunswick, New Jersey does just that.

This community was designed with residents needs in mind. There is a covered parking garage and bike storage on the premises. There is also two spacious outdoor decks, with one being on the 18th floor providing panoramic city views. You can also feel safe with a 24-hour doorman lobby. Apartments are often not big enough to entertain in, at least not if you are entertaining more than a few people. The Aspire has a Resident Club which has a kitchen attached to it, as well as a library and dining room. This area can be booked by residents for parties or other gatherings requiring some additional space than one might have in their apartment. All residents can enjoy the 24-hour, state-of-the-art fitness facility. This community is also pet friendly, and every apartment also comes equipped with a washer and dryer.

New Brunswick has a thriving night life, and this complex is surrounded by an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants and shopping options. The company that completed The Aspire project, also owns One Spring Street, another upscale community of New Brunswick luxury apartments. There is also another New Jersey apartment complex being undertaken by this development firm in Newark called One Rector Street. This is the first high-rise that is being built in this city, which unfortunately is the home to decaying structures that are reminiscent of an earlier, thriving, and industrial time.

Reinvesting in these areas is going to bring much needed additional housing options to Northern New Jersey in particular, which is home to an enormous amount of Manhattan residential overflow. Newark is also only about a 20 minute commute to the city for those that are looking for less expensive housing options while also wanting to avoid long commutes. New Jersey is a great place to live if you work in Manhattan, as you get a lot more for your money while remaining commutable distance from work and one of the world’s most thriving cities.
