Historic Lofts Entice Cultural-Hub On The Hudson

by Donovan Deans

The Latest Addition to the Historic Jersey City Arts District Waterfront Architecture.

You wake up to a picturesque sunrise, light slowly cresting over the riverside, overshadowed by the skyward spire of the World Trade Center. The lax hum of cruiser vessels patrolling the pier to the ebb and flow of the Hudson, your daily wake-up call. Walking down the corridor of the complex, every wall adorned with charming local artistry and bulbous lamps vining the wooden beams and ceilings. This is your living environment, the fortress of Jersey City nestled in the heart of the Powerhouse Arts District. Modera Lofts, the highly-anticipated, newly restored Mill Creek property is a junction of culture at the epicenter of metropolitan accessibility. A convenient walking distance away from the PATH to the Financial District and Midtown Manhattan, as well as to the University of Phoenix campus and Newport’s Historic Downtown. On the topic of history, Modera has a rich, historic precedent in the community ingrained in its very walls.

Modera Lofts Opening

This gargantuan condominium was restored from the previously vacated 110-year old brick and wood manufacturing warehouse of the Butler Brothers, a premier supplier and retailer for the waterfront founded in 1877. Combining the vision of Richard Murphy and the architectural ingenuity of Jarvis Hunt, Modera has since been renovated with the state-of-the-art in apartment real estate industry standards. Stylistically weathered wood dining tables and reinforced beams coalesce with a modern luxurious backdrop of leather furniture, authentic fireplaces and flat screen TV’s throughout the complex. An open bar decked to the rafters with quality spirits compliments the common area, overlooking the city through tinted, extended glass windows.

Leasing began for the apartment complex in December and the grand opening ceremony was hosted on June 14th. Key speakers at the event were Mill Creek lead developer Richard Murphy, Jersey City councilwoman Candice Osborne and Deputy Mayor Marcos Vigil.
