The Print House offers a location with a view situated on a multi-storey property with 40,000 square feet of retail space. And now, with the launch of rental, it is ready to be lived in.
Russo Development, The Hampshire Cos. and Fourth Edition Inc. officially introduced the mixed-use community located at 160 River St. in Hackensack this month. The 20-acre site’s nickname pays homage to its former occupant, the Bergen Record newspaper.
The first phase of the project includes 271 bachelor, one and two bedroom rental units and completed amenities. In total, the Maison de l’Imprimerie will have 653 residences.
And, the first tenants to come into the expansive commercial component on the ground floor of the property have also been announced, secured by an exclusive leasing brokerage for the NAI James E. Hanson property. Hackensack Meridian Health will offer medical services from its 6,000 square feet of space while Blue Foundry Bank has signed a long-term lease to house a branch in the community.
According to Michael Pembroke, COO of Russo Development, the Print House offers what residents want. “They have high expectations for a unique, convenient and more responsive community living experience. A project of this size and scope allowed us to be particularly creative with the ability to integrate the waterfront and streetscape across this vast site,” he said.
The Print House will include waterfront access via a new Riverwalk giving residents access to previously inaccessible spaces.
Pembroke added that leasing is changing rapidly as tenants are drawn to the availability of on-site retail options and the location’s convenient access to other shopping and transportation options.
