Dubbed Nest Micro Apartments, amenities will include a coffeehouse, a rooftop recreational space, a fitness center, and laundry facilities, among other spaces. KSNY and Strategic Properties are the developers, and GRO Architects is responsible for the architecture. Occupancy is expected in August 2018, the Jersey Journal reported.
