Attractive Perks What's Hot—and Not—in the World of Amenities

You’ve got the perfect couple looking into buying a condo in your building. And they love everything about the unit.

But here’s the catch—they also love everything about another building’s unit. They can’t decide which to buy.

Then they notice the gym in your building. It has everything they pay for at their private gym, which means they could save $150 every month by canceling their gym membership. And even though their unit has all the bells and whistles and the perfect location, it’s that gym that pushed them over the edge and made them take the plunge.

The Hudson Tea community, a trio of luxury condos in Hoboken, has seen this scenario play out over and over in their residential community. The three properties: The Hudson Tea, Maxwell Place on the Hudson and 1450 Washington—located on the former site of the Lipton Tea Factory—are home to Super Bowl XLVI and MVP quarterback Eli Manning as well as Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez. The properties are known for an outstanding array of amenities such as a rooftop pool and Jacuzzi, a landscaped rooftop terrace, a resident’s club, a business center and complimentary shuttle service to the PATH train.

“The fitness center and rooftop terrace are our most popular amenities but we’ve seen a greater interest in children’s playrooms,” says Todd Dumaresq, marketing manager for Toll Brothers City Living, a luxury condominium development firm that oversees the Hudson Tea community.
