Advance Realty and DeBartolo Development Announce Start of Leasing at Steel Works in Harrison, N.J.

Transit-Oriented Luxury Apartment Community is Situated in the Heart of Town’s Burgeoning Riverbend District

Advance Realty and DeBartolo Development announced today that leasing has commenced at Steel Works, the partnership’s new transit-oriented community of studio, one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments within the Riverbend District — an expansive, multi-phase development in Harrison, New Jersey.

Composed of 286 residences, Steel Works is part of an energetic, 35-acre neighborhood on the rise that is only an 18-minute train ride to New York City via the Harrison PATH station. It is adjacent to Red Bull Arena, in the heart of an area that will soon be home to an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops, entertainment and culture.

The community offers a collection of high-end amenities that includes a fitness center with an on-site “spin room” and 24/7 on-demand fitness classes, golf and multi-sport simulator, heated outdoor pool and clubhouse, chic resident lounge, high-style pet park, outdoor movie screen, and roof deck with fireside lounge and bar.

“As Harrison emerges as a sought-after transit-oriented destination, Steel Works meets the market’s demand for upscale, lifestyle-oriented apartments,” stated Peter Cocoziello, founder, president and CEO of Advance Realty. “We’ve outfitted the building with the features and amenities that today’s renters desire most, creating a holistic lifestyle that appeals to those who value the conveniences of urban living.”

DeBartolo President and COO Edward M. Kobel added: “Steel Works differs from other nearby developments in its appeal to a more cosmopolitan audience. We’ve incorporated advanced design and decor that pays tribute to Harrison’s industrial past, while also providing high-end features and amenities not currently found in New Jersey outside of the Gold Coast.”

Steel Works residences boast modern, chef-inspired kitchens with stainless steel appliances, designer cabinetry, quartz countertops, open shelving, and built-in wine chillers; elevated nine-foot ceilings; expansive walk-in custom closets; frameless glass shower doors; alternating height cabinets; audio enabled sound system; and the resident’s choice of two distinct color pallets. Apartments on the building’s first floor feature exposed spiral ducts with painted concrete ceilings; brick veneers and other stylish components contributing to an urban motif.

The opening of Steel Works represents a significant milestone in the development of the Riverbend District and the ongoing revitalization of Harrison. When complete, the Riverbend District will feature approximately 3,000 luxury apartments within eight buildings, as well as 100,000 square feet of premium retail space across six blocks.
