RARITAN, NJ – Crossings at Raritan Station, the luxury rental community that has delivered an amenity-rich lifestyle to a location right next to the train station in the Borough of Raritan, is now over 80 percent leased, developer Accurate Builders & Developers announced today.
The community of 276 residences has had a strong start to 2022, driven in large part by interest in apartment layouts that include a home office space, which accounts for more than half of the new leases signed this year, according to Jack Klugmann, President & CEO of Accurate Builders & Developers.
The desire for residences that can accommodate a home office setup, combined with modern interior spaces, a curated collection of indoor and outdoor amenities, and the many benefits of new construction are key factors in the strong leasing velocity at Crossings at Raritan Station.
“This is an exciting milestone at the community as it illustrates the strong appeal Crossings has in the marketplace,” Mr. Klugmann said. “Although the proximity to the train station is a compelling selling point for us, we are finding that the main reason people choose to live at Crossings is they love the modern feel of the building, the quality of the residences, and the suburban ambience of Raritan. It’s a complete lifestyle package that is resonating with the public.”
