Overlooking the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River, The Modern is a two-tower development designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Today, SJP Properties has announced that leasing has commenced for the project’s Phase II, which has officially reached full completion.
Phase II, the southern-most tower of the development, is identical to the north-facing component, which together bring 900 rentals to Fort Lee. Upon opening, the towers will have a combined 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including spa and sauna facilities, state-of-the-art fitness center, gaming areas, a bowling alley, an arcade, a golf simulation room, an internet cafe, co-working areas, and a private screening room.
An infinity pool, summer kitchens, a basketball court, and lawn areas are among the outdoor amenities available to occupants.
At the local level, The Modern is positioned to drive a continued effort to enrich and revitalize the borough of Fort Lee. Between the two towers, SJP has also begun construction of a nearly two-acre public park offering local residents a landscaped, recreational area which the developer says will be reminiscent of Central Park.
The park will also see the development of a 7,000-square-foot restaurant, with both indoor and open-air dining, in addition to a 13,000-square-foot public theater and museum.
“The creation of this park signifies SJP’s commitment to making downtown Fort Lee really thrive,” said Steven Pozycki, Founder, Chairman and CEO of SJP Properties. “The Modern and the public park will anchor Fort Lee’s Main Street, and provide timeless solutions that elevate the standard of living in the neighborhood. These are amenities that people will enjoy for years to come.”
Pricing at The Modern starts at $1,717 for a studio, $2,631 for a one-bedroom, $3,604 for a two-bedroom and $6,466 for a three-bedroom residence.
According to data from CTBUH, full completion of the structures positions the project as one of the tallest twin-towered developments in the world.
