An historic industrial complex, birthplace of the aluminum beer can, will soon bow as the remarkable Canco Lofts, a range of 551 condos with soaring ceilings in Jersey City. A stylish conversion of the five-tower property, occupied by the American Can Company from the 1920s to 1970s—and known for its distinctive saw-tooth roofline and art-deco details—will include oversize windows, hardwood floors, sleek kitchens, and imported glass tile bathrooms. “There’s an original mushroom-capped column rising through each unit, lending a piece of history,” says marketing director Edward Yorukoff. “And the 17-foot-long walls are perfect for hanging art or accommodating 108-inch dining tables.” The large Residents Club encompasses a 2,500-square-foot fitness center, yoga and Pilates studio, and pub-like game room overlooking a half basketball court. Canco Lofts is at 50 Dey Street, west of downtown Jersey City; a shuttle bus runs to Journal Square, eight blocks away. Prices start in the low $300,000s. OCCUPANCY SPRING 2008.

Only 20 minutes from midtown Manhattan but occupying its own charmed sphere, the Hudson Club at Port Imperial, in West New York, is winning raves from all quarters. If you can picture a “quaint village”—that’s what senior sales manager Kent Bullis calls it—with a New York lifestyle and all the assets of the Gold Coast, you have the essence of the Hudson Club. A plush resort style infuses the one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes; there are lovely loft spaces available in some residences. Select units have maple finish wood flooring and polished black granite kitchen counters. Residents of the two luxury mid-rise buildings can relax by the pool or in the whirlpool spa. Or get out and stroll, jog, or bike the splendid Waterfront Walkway. The 200-acre Port Imperial beckons with tennis, kids’ playground, marina, boutiques, restaurants, and top food shops. Pricing ranges upward from the mid-$400,000s to $1,300,000-plus; condos with water views start in the $600,000s. IMMEDIATE OCCUPANCY.

“In the ‘new urbanism’ people are moving back to the cities, a reverse migration of the last fifty years,” says Dean Geibel, managing partner of Metro Homes, a big player in Hoboken and Jersey City, “and they’re finding life more palatable, safer, cleaner, with much better mass transportation. We’re also tapping into their need for greater amenities, spas, game rooms, golf simulators, retail at their fingertips, and we are giving them the ‘green’ buildings they want.”
