Anyone who has driven by the George Washington Bridge can’t help but be drawn to the 47-story, impressively designed high-rise glass tower at its New Jersey base. Dubbed The Modern, the building glistens with elegance from its location in the heart of downtown Fort Lee, boasting 450 luxury rental residences in a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. With the Manhattan subway less than 10 minutes away via a courtesy shuttle, The Modern offers a truly luxurious living experience that rivals that of the most extravagant buildings in northern New Jersey and New York City.
Seeking a room with a view? Look no further. Each of The Modern’s residences features floor-to-ceiling windows that maximize dramatic views of the Hudson River and New York City skyline, underscored by lavish interiors including oak hardwood floors, walk-in closets, washers and dryers, stone bathrooms and attractively designed open kitchens.
To match, The Modern’s residents have access to an array of amenities that redefine next-level luxury. A spacious, state-of-the-art fitness center, a separate yoga and Pilates studio, and a spa featuring a community sauna and massage services ensure a wellness experience that’s comparable to New York City’s high-end boutique health clubs and spas. Additional indoor amenities include a strikingly designed lounge area, a well-appointed screening room, a sophisticated golf simulation area, and an underwater-themed “tween” room with a Nintendo Wii station that’s aptly named the “Aquapella Lounge.” An Internet lounge with snacks is also available, providing a space where residents can hook up their laptop computers to available WiFi and printers.
Outdoors, an impressive resort-style infinity pool surrounded by chaise lounges sets the tone for warmer months. Other outdoor amenities include volleyball and basketball courts that are available for games with friends or fellow residents; an expansive rolling lawn area that features outdoor movies during summer evenings; and individual and community barbecue stations that allow residents to enjoy a taste of outdoor cooking any time of the day. A covered dog walking area and pet spa, as well as separate indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, ensure comfort for the community’s smallest residents as well.
Residents also enjoy a uniquely tailored lifestyle program that features daily events such as wine and beer tastings, professionally guided outdoor group cycling rides, “Yappy Hours” with licensed pet grooming services; and an artisanal food truck program featuring the area’s most popular restaurants and food vendors.
On par with The Modern’s other high-end conveniences, residents have access to an indoor parking garage — a rarity that makes for a comfortable driving experience in one of the most active metropolitan areas.
