A Look Inside Bloomfield’s Parkway Lofts

PL NWG Dec Photo5Call it funky luxury. Parkway Lofts in Bloomfield shared this look at a one bedroom loft apartments in the adaptive re-use building.

The apartments, with open floor plans, high ceilings and lots of natural light, are a far cry from the 1915 building’s original use by The General Electric Co. The six-story warehouse building is now eight stories with 361 apartments.

Kitchens feature Quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, glass-tile backsplashes and custom cabinetry. Available floor plans at Parkway Lofts include a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom loft-style and duplex residences. Monthly rents start from the $1,500s. Building amenities include a 24/7 attended lobby, a two-level state-of-the-art fitness center, a large-screen theater room, a roof-top deck, a private party and billiards room, an on-site resident-only convenience store and a dog run.

In addition to a washer/dryer in each apartment unit, residents have access to larger commercial-style laundry facilities and storage lockers on each floor. A parking garage and additional in-building and surface parking are available. NJ Transit’s Watsessing Avenue Station is 1,000 feet away.

Parkway Lofts’ on-site leasing center is located at 5 Lawrence St. in Bloomfield, and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, contact the leasing center at (201) 308-8200.

    I want to sell my house and move there, all it needs is a little more of a neighborhood. I guess that will start happening once all the building around the giant Bloomfield parking lot is done.

    The outside was restored admirably, the rooftop addition was handled well, and the interiors benefit from a spare, contemporary feel. The photo, above, of what appears to be a model apartment seems to indicate a lack of mold and leaks, which sets this project head and shoulders above Siena and probably Centro Verde, too.

    It looks very New York for New Jersey, but the neighborhood, yikes. Isn’t that around where the Dirt Club used to be? I wonder how loud the Parkway is inside there. If you visit their web site they do what all realtors do and magnify the Manhattan skyline about 4 times so it looks like you’re right across the river instead of 10+ miles away.

    If you look at their website you’ll see they are advertising Montclair- they have even moved Bloomfield’s Orange Squirrel to Bloomfield Ave in Montclair. They barely have a single thing in Bloomfield on the map although they claim to be in Bloomfield and are actually in East Orange

    Stunning home. Do you know the contractors that did the work?

    Someone close to me is moving into the Lofts. I haven’t been over to check it out yet but they made of point of telling me yesterday that they are in the hood. They are moving from a distance and didn’t realize how close to E.O. and industrial Bloomfield they would be.

    This is more “OUR STYLE” …not the big new characterless residential building blocks that are invading Montclair Center. The Edison Lab lofts on Main Street are going to blow the new Montclair Apartment buildings out of the water, demand wise because they’re so much better space and style wise. I know several residents of Llewellyn Park and Upper Mountain Avenue that have already made the choice of these fabulous new local loft dwellings.

    East Orange is a great new frontier. The Center has already made an amazing comeback buildingwise.

    Frank – I agree. Re-purposed industrial facilities turn into extremely flattering dwellings when converted properly. Im excited for the Edison one to get going. As I stared up out of my sunroof in Manhattan the other day around Astor place I couldnt help but wish new construction looked more like the old brick and mortar buildings. Even new brick doesnt look like brick. Unfortunately to do ground up similar to these re-purposed units you have to spend the moolah and a lot of developers dont want to do that.

    The apartments look nice but I wouldn’t even classify the neighborhood as a frontier neighborhood yet. The closest amenity is “Titillations” around the corner. At $2500 for a 1 BR, I dont know who would move from the UWS for that, and it should be interesting to see how quickly they lease the place out.

    50% rented out already. And Doddtown Pizza has some great pies.

    Oh …. the greed that made those Astor Place buildings go up is also the cause for the demise of Cooper Union’s tuition free education status…ARGH

    One of the first transition constructions from solid 3 wydth brick to brick face concrete cavity wall construction is the 1938 Rockcliffe Apartments in Montclair. They were originally designed as 2500sq ft luxury apts with maids bedrooms and service entrances. The Rockcliffe Apartments replaced the 5 star Hotel Montclair at the event of the crash of the stock market and once weathy Montclair property owners were required to downsize.

    Although $2500. seems high for a luxury one bedroom…. for $1000 more a month, you can get a studio apt in a similar re purposed construction in NYC…. or a 2 Bedroom older established luxury unit in Montclair.

    Some of the cheapest interiors I’ve seen for a place marketing itself as “luxury”. Laminate cabinets straight out of Home Depot, and cheesy plastic bath tubs that aren’t even built-ins. Really. A plastic shower rod and curtain is a “luxury” detail? Home Depot economy switching and outlets and plates even…….etc.

    The rest is nothing more than a sheetrock job NOT screwed up.

    Hey, Great!!

    If we’re gonna start mining the Baristanet vault, this is a great place to start.

    Does anyone live here? Has anyone moved in since this story ran almost a year ago?

    The story says, “Kitchens feature Quartz countertops, stainless-steel appliances, glass-tile backsplashes and custom cabinetry…”

    Perhaps not Home Depot…… High ceilings, lots of natural light, why the hate?

    I have family living there and with big dogs they didn’t have a lot of rental options. It is a nice place but still a lot of empty units. Over hearing one of the sales people with a couple from NYC and they weren’t foaming to sign a lease at the costs, even comparing it to their NYC rents. The area around it isn’t charming and the gate breaking down is a normal occurrence. Also the units seem huge when empty but fill up very fast with minimal furniture. Before the move it seemed like there would be room to add a dining table, post move we can’t even remember why we thought that would be possible. Also I’m not aware of any resident only store on the premises and I was given a full tour.

Mikie Sherill has been holding lots of meetings all over the district. Seriously, she's been everywhere since she declared. And from what I can tell, she's doing a nice job getting to know the people out in Morris, Passaic, etc.
