Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner Joins Roseland for Ground Breaking at RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial

Edison, New Jersey—June 15, 2016—Roseland Residential Trust, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation (NYSE: CLI), broke ground yesterday on RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial, the newest luxury residential project at Port Imperial in Weehawken. Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner was on hand, along with company and municipal officials, to commemorate the newest addition to New Jersey’s Gold Coast.

The 10-story luxury residential community on the Hudson River will feature 295 studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, and will offer magnificent views of the iconic New York City skyline.

“Since the late 1990’s we’ve had a partnership with Roseland and it’s been a great public, private partnership,” Turner said. “This area used to be all shipping and railroads and it paid a third of the taxes for the community. When it all died the community had to pick it up and it was an extreme hardship.  Now you’ve seen over the last 25 or 30 years a complete revival of this area with connecting waterfront from West New York all the way down through Weehawken.”

Apartment homes in the newest addition to the Port Imperial residential market will include all luxury vinyl wood plank floors, quartz countertops with full-height backsplash, and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, along with Moen, Koehler, and Sterling fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms. The community will feature a host of resort-like amenities designed to give residents the finest in luxury living, including a fitness center, yoga and spin studio, rock climbing wall, conference room, Wi-Fi café and business center, sports simulator, children’s room, theater room, game room, music room, resident lounge, pool, spa, outdoor lounges with fire pit and fireplaces, barbeque grilling stations, and a bocce court.

The building is expected to be open for occupancy in the first quarter of 2018.

Marshall Tycher, chairman of Roseland Residential Trust, said the Port Imperial community offers one of the premier waterfront locations in the area.

“Port Imperial is one of the most spectacular locations in the region and we’re proud of the communities we’ve opened here to date,” Tycher said. “With its view of the New York City skyline, its convenient access to Manhattan, and unmatched amenity package, RiverHouse 11 will offer a true luxury living experience.”

RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial is the latest addition to the $2 billion, 200-acre master-planned waterfront development that features upscale residences and retail, world-class views of the Manhattan skyline, and access to transportation options including ferry service to Manhattan and Light Rail service along the Gold Coast.

In total, Roseland has constructed 2,609 apartments at Port Imperial, with an additional 2,029 apartments planned. When completed, the redevelopment project will be comprised of 20 total properties, including residential, retail, and hotel components.
