Hampshire Cos. celebrates grand opening for 221 Bergen

Harrison, NJ — The Hampshire Companies celebrated the Grand Opening of 221 Bergen, a 104-unit luxury residential complex on Bergen St. in Harrison, along with joint venture partner, CrownPoint Group, and project investment advisor, Circle Squared Alternative Investments. Located in the River-bend section of Harrison, 221 Bergen broke ground in October of 2014. Harrison Mayor, James Fife, executives from The Hampshire Companies, CrownPoint Group and Circle Squared Alternative Investments, project investors, and Harrison Township officials were in attendance and cut the ribbon officially.Situated on nearly one and a half acres, 221 Bergen features two 52-unit luxury residential buildings with one and two-bedroom rental units. Amenities include a resident’s lounge with a kitchen and entertainment area, a fitness room, a yoga room, furnished rooftop terrace and available one car garages with openers and storage units.“This project has, since the beginning, been driven by the passion for the continued renaissance by Harrison’s Mayors,” said Jon Hanson, founder and chairman of The Hampshire Companies. “For Hampshire, the completion of this project is a testament to our dedication to work with local officials and communities in order to create something that is more than just a building, but an opportunity to take part in the revitalization of a growing, thriving community. 221 Bergen embodies that sense of community.”“The completion of 221 Bergen signals a coming out party for Harrison as the $250 million dollar expansion and modernization of the PATH station and the oft-written Gold Coast renaissance attracts millennials, empty-nesters and investors,” said Jeffrey Milanaik, CEO of CrownPoint Group. “Whenever you are making an investment recommendation, the primary consideration is whether the project is sustainable in the community,” said Jeffrey Sica, founder and president of Circle Squared Alternative Investments. “Working with a trusted and long-term partner like Hampshire in a community with leadership as dedicated as Mayor Fife, and with integral infrastructure already in place, that recommendation to our investors becomes a lot easier.”
