Jersey City was recently ranked the 17th-best city in the nation for young professionals, which isn’t surprising considering it’s a 10-minute PATH ride to lower Manhattan and has seen a true artistic renaissance unfold over the last decade. But that doesn’t mean it’s an affordable place for young professionals to live, which is where the new 122-unit micro-apartment property Nest comes in.
Located at 190 Academy Street in Journal Square, the property is overseen by innovative multifamily property manager Common and was developed by KSNY and Strategic Properties. The fully-furnished studio apartments start at just $1,277/month and, in the creative spirit of Jersey City, are showing that affordability doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice good design. (And just wait ’til you see the amenities.)
