New, Boutique Apartment Development Benefits from Desirable Location 

The Frederick

HIGHLAND PARK, N.J., Aug. 3, 2022The Frederick, a new boutique rental community in Highland Park, has achieved 100% lease-up. According to developer Garden Communities, the 40-home apartment development offers renters a coveted Middlesex County address that blends a transit-inspired lifestyle with proximity to urban conveniences. 

Located at 2 Walter Ave., on the site of a former medical office building, The Frederick represents a new housing option in Highland Park’s residential neighborhood. While the pace of leasing exceeded expectations, Garden Communities’ Brett Tanzman noted the community’s popularity comes as no surprise. “The Frederick offers the best of both worlds: luxurious apartment homes and lifestyle amenities in one of New Jersey’s most vibrant municipalities – just across the Raritan River from New Brunswick,” he said.  

The Frederick’s contemporary one- and two-bedroom apartments range in size from 800 to more than 1,200 square feet, with oversize windows and open designs providing abundant natural light. Well-appointed kitchens, wider plank flooring, pedestal lighting with Edison bulbs, and in-suite washers and dryers are among many high-end features, and select apartments also have patios or balconies with city or Raritan River views.  

Tanzman noted that The Frederick’s onsite amenities distinguish it among rental properties of its size. Among them, residents enjoy a state-of-the-art fitness center; co-working space; and a community entertainment lounge with prep kitchen, large flat-screen TVs, a fireplace, and a wet bar. The community also features a package room, dog-washing station, resident storage, indoor/outdoor bike storage and EV chargers.  

Residents of The Frederick also have access to Highland Park’s top public schools, an abundance of in-town shopping and dining options, and a thriving music and visual arts scene. Along with neighborhood parks and trails, the pedestrian- and bike-friendly borough is situated between two county parks – Donaldson and Johnson parks –offering abundant space for recreation and relaxation.  

“At the same time, bustling New Brunswick, rich public transit options, Rutgers University, Johnson & Johnson’s world headquarters and two world-class medical centers – Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and St. Peters University Hospital – are just minutes away,” he said. “In short, Highland Park checks every box from a lifestyle perspective, and that has proven very attractive to today’s renters.” The less than two-square-mile borough is a 45-minute drive from both Manhattan and New Jersey shore communities, and about 75 minutes from Philadelphia.
