Phase II of The Modern in Fort Lee Now More Than 60-Percent Leased

FORT LEE, N.J. — SJP Properties announced today that more than 60 percent of the luxury rental residences at Phase II of The Modern are now leased. Comprising 450 apartments in a striking 47-story glass tower, The Modern’s second phase is a mirror image of the development’s first building, with the two towers serving as the cornerstone of an increasingly coveted mixed-use neighborhood being created within downtown Fort Lee, N.J.

Designed by renowned architecture firm Elkus Manfredi Architects, The Modern offers some of the Gold Coast’s most awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. But what truly sets The Modern apart is the inclusion of an unprecedented 150,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor resort-style amenities spread across the community’s two towers, allowing residents to feel like they’re living in a five-star hotel.

Phase II alone boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center; a spa with sauna; a television/movie screening room; a bowling alley; an arcade room; two golf simulators; and an internet café and co-working space. Its outdoor and rooftop amenities include an infinity pool; fire pits; a basketball court; an expansive rolling lawn area available for outdoor movies; and community barbecue stations.

Each of The Modern’s 900 residences features striking floor-to-ceiling windows, oak hardwood floors, walk-in-closets, washers and dryers, stone bathrooms and opulent open-layout kitchens.

“The Modern is an incomparable offering. We’ve created a luxury residential community that’s also contributing to the economic vitality of Fort Lee, effectively establishing this area as a true destination along the Gold Coast,” said Enrique Alonso, Executive Vice President of SJP Properties. “We were thrilled with the response we received to Phase I, and we’re excited to see Phase II drawing residents in even more quickly than the first tower.”

In addition to its residences and lifestyle amenities, The Modern is also home to Ventanas Restaurant & Lounge, a premier American-Asian-Cuban restaurant from local restauranteur Alexander Duran and culinary icon David Burke. Ventanas totals 7,000 square feet, with both indoor and outdoor dining, and sits within a beautifully-landscaped, two-acre public park situated between the two towers. Starting this summer, Ventanas will offer poolside service at The Modern, and will soon offer room service and pool side service directly to the community’s residents.

Inspired by Central Park, The Modern’s park enhances walkability and connectivity within Fort Lee, and provides a green space for recreation and enjoyment, with walking paths and integrated water features. SJP is also developing an adjoining 13,000-square-foot building to be donated to the Borough of Fort Lee. The space will house a large public theater and a public museum paying tribute to Fort Lee’s historical connections to the film industry. 

“We aren’t just building iconic towers in Fort Lee. We’re bringing truly upscale living and dining experiences into the borough, and creating even more cultural and economic assets to draw people back to the downtown area,” added Alonso.

SJP Properties developed The Modern in partnership with PGIM Real Estate and Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company. 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.
