The Cliffs Lofts

8/12/2008 Update:

Boy, it’s been quite a while (2006) since this entry was updated.

But in case you didn’t know, these “luxury condos” that were built in the oddest of locations on the edge of the Hoboken’s SW border, are now RENTALS. Testament that the real estate market is doing fine, right? Do you think they switch them to distort real estate statistics?

120+ units, more foot and vehicular traffic, it’s likely that some kind of impact will be felt in Hoboken. Puny studios start close to $350k and go up to 1600sq. ft. units closer to $1MM. As always, the developers website makes the place look ideal. Plus phrases like “The Cliffs are at the center of everything” and “There are beautiful views of Sinatra Park” really make me want to live there. In the land of perpetual fabulous sunrises, Pacific sunsets and never-ending blue skies, life is most certainly perfect! I’m welling up as I type.

Hey, it’s better than having dumpy condemned buildings or polluting industrial plants. And if the parks plan goes even partially like the residents want, you never know! What do you think of this new building? Would you live there?

Here’s the pretty animation:

This place is a joke.. They really do make it sound way better than it is… I like how they advertise “cliff views” . Judging by how close it is to the cliff, that’s about the only thing you’ll be looking at. The prices are ridiculous for this place – you’re right next to the light rail with the constant ringing bells, adjacent to the stinky recycling plant that you can smell all summer, and right on a busy road & intersection… This has to be one of the worst locations possible. I think they’ve only sold 20% of the… Read more »

What a joke. Notice how they omitted the ghetto housing projects adjacent to the light rail from the animation. I just don’t see why anyone would want to live here. Horrible location, light rail ringing all night, busy traffic at all hours of the day, and you can’t really walk to anything except the light rail. The place is totally isolated. Not to mention taxes and maintenance will probably be close to $1000 a month. Also, the little park/courtyard between the cliff and the building will probably get only about 45 minutes of sun per day.

I guess there could be worse places to live. But I wouldn’t pay $1 million to live next to a garbage dump.

You guys are just too negative. Look at all the building amenities from that website- how many other buildings have nail salons and dry cleaners right across the street?

I will never understand why people put down new buildings they have no intention of living in, seemingly wanting the units not to sell. Unless you are renters, then this is exactly the last thing you want to do in a town you live in and own in.
