We’re big fans of getting a first look at new apartment buildings — and luckily for us, there’s a brand-new spot that just hit the Jersey City scene. This rental building — complete with a full suite of modern amenities and social spaces — has now started leasing in Jersey City’s historic Journal Square. Located at 244 St. Pauls Avenue, Le Léo features studio, one-, and two-bedroom residences starting in the $2,600s. Keep reading to learn more about the new building, the amenities we’re obsessed with — like the rooftop terrace + on-site dog run — and a special limited-time offer for Hoboken Girl readers.
A Look Inside Le Léo
The distinctive six-story building was developed by Park Stone Management and Fields Grade, two prominent companies with strong ties to Jersey City. Le Léo features 99 oversized residences available for immediate occupancy with grand opening incentives that include one month free for a limited time.
Designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve, Le Léo’s residences have nine-foot ceilings, luxury plank flooring, in-home washer and dryer, and complimentary window treatments. Lavish kitchens include stainless steel appliances, Quartz countertops, full-height backsplashes, soft-close cabinetry, and under-cabinet lighting. Baths are outfitted with porcelain tile floors and full-height tiled walls for a clean + modern look.
Residents at Le Léo also have access to a variety of amenities and social spaces to make a modern live/work/play lifestyle possible. Outdoor amenities include an outdoor rooftop terrace, BBQs, sun loungers, misting station (yes, please!), fire pits and lounge seating. Interior amenities include state-of-the-art fitness center + yoga studio, co-working spaces with a conference room, and game room. Other building conveniences include an outdoor dog run for your furry loved ones, resident storage, bike storage, and enclosed garage parking.
Residents and the community will also appreciate having local favorite Choc O Pain French Bakery + Café, which is now open in the building’s street-level retail space and integrated into the lobby lounge.
Le Léo is just a short walk to the Journal Square PATH Station and centrally located in a culturally-rich, well-connected neighborhood that is regaining its distinction as the business, arts, and shopping hub of Jersey City.
The Journal Square area features an endless array of lifestyle activities available in the neighborhood. The widely-known Mana Contemporary arts and cultural center offers visual and performing arts programming and exhibitions, and entertainment and culture are soon to be found at the restored Loew’s Theatre and much-anticipated Parisian museum Centre De Pompidou. There’s also an eclectic offering of restaurants, bakeries, and cafes, as well as plenty of shops, boutiques, and community activities, like the JSQ Farmers Market.
“Journal Square is teeming with dining, shops, entertainment, and culture, all centered around a transit-rich infrastructure,” Jonathan Feifer, Founder/Owner of Park Stone Management, told Hoboken Girl. “The area has also emerged as a residential destination, drawing residents from New York City, Downtown Jersey City, the state’s suburban communities, and beyond. We’re excited to add Le Léo to the mix and introduce a contemporary, boutique offering to the neighborhood.”
Don’t forget to mention ‘Hoboken Girl’ to take advantage of limited-time grand opening incentives, including one month free.
