The Mint has entered the Downtown Rahway residential landscape with 116 luxury rental residences and a full suite of modern amenities in the heart of the Union County city’s burgeoning dining, shopping and nightlife scene.
Leasing is officially underway at the distinctive five-story building which features a collection of studios, one- and two-bedroom homes with spacious floorplans, open and bright living areas and stylish appointments. The Mint’s ultra-convenient 81 Monroe Street address will place residents in a commuter-friendly location just steps from New Jersey Transit’s Rahway station, one of the few in the state with service on two train lines, allowing travelers to access both the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast routes.
The Mint officially debuted on January 17th with a special ribbon cutting ceremony attended by Rahway Mayor Raymond Giacobbe, fellow municipal officials and principals of joint-venture development partners Fields Grade and the Slokker Group. Guests enjoyed tours of The Mint’s furnished model homes, lifestyle amenities and onsite leasing center.
“The Mint reflects the evolution of Rahway into a vibrant residential destination,” said Nils Berten, VP USA of The Slokker Group. “This is a walkable urban setting with a growing list of restaurants, shops, theatres, seasonal markets and more in its downtown district, with suburban elements like scenic parks scattered throughout. It’s easily commutable to New York City in just 45 minutes by train, as well as Edison, New Brunswick and the Jersey Shore. We’re excited to now introduce a new modern living option to the mix.”
Situated just 20 miles from New York City, Rahway offers its own cosmopolitan lifestyle with an urban/suburban twist right at home. Driven by the Rahway Arts and Business Partnership, Rahway’s Main Street corridor and its surrounding area features dining, shops and a robust schedule of farmer’s markets, cultural events and concerts. The district is home to popular eateries like Luciano’s, The Irving Inn and CubaNu Restaurant and Lounge; nightlife at the legendary Waiting Room and Wet Ticket Brewing Company, as well as countless shops and daily services. Cultural attractions can be found at the 199-seat Hamilton Stage for the Performing Arts, historic Union County Performing Arts Center, and The Gallery Space Rahway. In addition to the in-town train station, Rahway is served by U.S. Routes 1/9 and 27, and is located in between the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike.
