To do so, the commercial real estate developer held a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday to showcase the success the “first-class living” apartment complex.
“We are thrilled to be part of Port Jeff Village and add to the beauty, the economic vitality, and vibrancy of the community,” said Tritec’s co-founder, Bob Coughlan.
Since opening up the 112 apartments to residents on 201 West Broadway three months ago, the units have been filling up quickly.
“We received a fantastic reception,” said Coughlan. “We have 91 out of the 112 units leased.. thank you for all the support.”
In addition to the apartments, the property also includes a gym, clubhouse and a sprawling courtyard with four barbecues, a fire pit and turf fields for lawn games or lying out.
“Our goal was to create a Class A, quality rental living environment and I think we did it,” said Tritec’s lead developer, Robert Kent.
Also on hand was Port Jeff Mayor Margot Garant, who showed her support of the project.
“We couldn’t ask for a better partner to [transform] a blighted site that for decades was bordered up and broken into,” she said.
