Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights

Union County Address, Luxury Apartments Draws Active Adult Renters 

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Aug. 25, 2022Garden Communities Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights – 55+ Active Adult Community has quickly made its mark in the Union County marketplace. The two-building, 196-home, luxury apartment community for residents aged 55 and over, reached 95% leased this summer  just months after the first building’s introduction, with the second nearing completion.  

Located at 100 Locust Ave., Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights’ coveted address in one of Union County’s most prestigious locations gives it a distinct market advantage, according to Tony DiGiovanni, the project’s developer. 

“The leasing pace at Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights is off the charts, and this high demand is proof positive that we’ve successfully created the kind of rental community today’s empty-nester is seeking,” DiGiovanni said. “Many of our residents are from the local area; they raised their families here and want to scale down but remain close to their children, grandchildren, friends, doctors and other familiar conveniences. Although they may be coming from larger single-family homes, these apartments offer plenty of room for those that want to downsize without sacrificing comfort.” 

Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights features one- and two-bedroom rental residences ranging in size from about 950 to 1,550 square feet. Apartments feature spacious living rooms with a private balcony or patio, nine-foot-high ceilings, wood plank flooring and large kitchens with quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances.  

Resort-at-Home Living  
Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights’ 55+ active adult residents enjoy an activity-rich social and recreational lifestyle. The smoke-free and pet-friendly community includes a clubhouse with amenities such as a fitness center; a lounge with large televisions, couches and a fireplace; a game room with wet bar; and a recreation/community event room. Generous outdoor seating overlooks lush, well-manicured grounds. Additional features include 24-hour emergency maintenance, elevators and covered parking. 

Woodcrest at Berkeley Heights’ location is also key to its appeal, according to DiGiovanni. Situated along the I-78 corridor, the development is proximate to public transportation, major highways, area work centers and the Berkeley Heights campus of Summit Health. The community is located directly across the street from the YMCA, proximate to shopping, dining, culture and recreation.
