EDGEWATER, NJ — GFI Mortgage, one of the nation’s leading real estate lenders, today announced that sales have commenced at The Pearl, a luxury community of 71 condominiums in Edgewater, N.J.
Located on the banks of the Hudson River, equidistant from both the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel, The Pearl offers spectacular Manhattan views in a relaxed waterfront setting. GFI will serve as a direct mortgage lender for the residences, providing in-house processing, underwriting and closing support.
“We are privileged to serve as lender for such a breathtaking project,” said Jordan Roth, senior branch manager at GFI Mortgage. “We will take a hands-on approach with brokers and attorneys to ensure an efficient and seamless mortgage process for what is sure to be a high-demand community.”
Skidmore Owings and Merrill, architects of New York City’s Freedom Tower at One World Trade, originally designed The Pearl as a research facility in 1953. Nearly 60 years later, developer Natural Resources has partnered with Lessard Design Associates and Alan Tanksley Interiors to give the waterfront building a proper facelift, starting with new full-height windows, natural finishes and sustainable energy systems.
The Pearl will serve as an accessible upscale alternative to traditional city living. In addition to its proximity to the George Washington Bridge and Lincoln Tunnel, the community offers seamless access to Manhattan via nearby ferry terminals. Furthermore, residents are only a short drive from three major international airports, along with many of Hudson County’s renowned recreation destinations.
The new condominiums will feature a wide array of five-star amenities. Residents will have access to a 24-hour concierge, state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor heated pool and stunning rooftop deck. Each unit comes complete with 10-foot ceilings, along with high-grade Bosch appliances and advanced security and keyless entry systems.
“For those looking for city convenience and accessibility in a suburban locale, The Pearl really has it all,” Roth said. “We’ll be able to offer an expansive portfolio and competitive rates on a truly breathtaking property with Manhattan views that you really need to see to believe.”
The Pearl is constructed using Natural Resources’ trademarked intelligent design, using energy efficient appliances and hyper-efficient HVAC systems. The design of the building incorporates environmentally friendly materials, including sustainably forested timber and local reclaimed wood.
Prices for The Pearl start at $650,000. For more information on The Pearl, please visit http://www.thepearlnj.com. Prospective buyers can contact Roth for financing and pre-approval at 212-837-4597 or jroth@gfimortgage.com.
