COMMUTER HEAVEN

Nothing less than a commuter’s dream, The Reserve at Glen Ridge is a luxury condo community in a tree-lined Essex County town, an easy 36-minute train ride from Penn Station. This striking four-story building features 37 distinctive residences of spacious 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom designs, including five multi-level townhouses with private entrances.

The fully loaded units, priced from $535,000 to $1.82 million, come with rich oak floors throughout, full-sized washer and dryer, oversized windows, ceilings 9 feet and up; gourmet kitchens with KitchenAid Architect series stainless-steel package; sumptuous master baths clad in Bottocino and Emperador marble. Concierge and indoor heated parking are two more allures.

Just steps from the charming Ridgewood Avenue train station and a quick run to NYC, the development, by The Pegasus Group, feeds off a town blessed with parks and recreational facilities, excellent shopping and dining, and architectural styles dating from the mid-19th century.

LOFTY AND LUXE

There’s fresh buzz on the booming Jersey waterfront, in anticipation of The Lofts at Riverwalk, K. Hovnanian’s spanking-new West New York addition to the sprawling Port Imperial. At once lavish, spacious and affordable, the 268-loft, mid-rise building boasts every amenity you’ll find in New York City’s top residences, with one thing better: a view of the city skyline.

The roomy lofts are fitted with 1-, 2- or 3-bedrooms (some dens), ranging from about 1,000 to nearly 2,300SF, with 1 to 2 1⁄2 baths, private balconies and such touches as 8-foot designer entry doors and 10-foot ceilings. Choose from multi-design packages with a choice of several floor finishes and four different kitchen combos. Amenities include gorgeous fitness center, theater/screening room.

The Lofts are serenely removed from the bustling Port Imperial ferry terminal, which shuttles residents to Manhattan in seven minutes; a large retail center with impressive promenade is on the way, with restaurants, spa, wine market, super market and other needs. Prices range upward from the $500,000s.

THE ROAD TO MANDALAY

Suddenly the road to Mandalay is but a short hop across the river to Jersey City. A luxurious new condo tower, Mandalay on the Hudson, scores with amenities not often found in urban living—heated riverfront pool, scenic riverfront promenade and easy access to airport, highways and big-time Jersey shopping malls.

Mary Boorman, Pinnacle Companies’ senior vice president of marketing and strategic planning, notes that few other buildings on the Gold Coast combine the proximity to public transportation with such sweeping views, north to the GW Bridge, south to Staten Island.  Mandalay is within easy reach of the clubs and restaurants in Jersey City’s revitalized downtown.

The 26-story tower includes 269 condos starting at the mid-$300s, all with sleek design features, floor to ceiling windows. Among the amenities: fitness area/exercise room, children’s playground, parking garage with parking for one car.

Hailing the “spectacular transformation” of the Hoboken-Jersey City waterfront, Ben Jogodnik, a senior vice president of Toll Brothers developers, says, “We’re seeing a very diverse mix of buyers—young people starting out on Wall Street, couples with children and empty-nest suburbanites who want an active urban lifestyle.”
