BAYONNE, NJ — Mayor James Davis, city officials and more than 300 residents and families joined Castle Lanterra Properties (CLP) at a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the official opening of the newly-renovated resident clubhouse at Harbor Pointe. The 544-unit luxury apartment community, situated on 7.4 acres along the waterfront, is the initial development and centerpiece of the 420-acre man-made Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor.
CLP’s extensive remodel transformed the recreational facility into a multi-media, multi-purpose clubhouse designed to meet the needs of the community’s evolving resident demographic. A two-story jungle gym is the focal point of the space, which also includes a full-service kitchen, children’s library, media room, gaming center and fitness center with separate yoga/spin studio.
“The resident demographics at Harbor Pointe have evolved to include a larger proportion of young families attracted by Bayonne’s cost of living and its accessibility to world class employment,” said Elie Rieder, founder and CEO of the privately held-real estate investment company, which purchased the property in 2015. “This project reflects an expansion of our core value-add investment strategy to include unique amenities aimed at enhancing the quality of life for all residents.”
Mayor Davis, who was joined by City of Bayonne council members Juan Perez, Gary La Pelusa, Sr., Salvatore Gullace and Thomas Cotter, applauded Rieder for his vision and ongoing commitment to the city’s future. “What you see here is Castle Lanterra’s investment into you as residents that live here and also into the City of Bayonne.”
