CLOSINGS UNDERWAY AT EAST GATE IN HISTORIC FT. MONMOUTH WITH FIRST RESIDENTS TO ARRIVE AT UPSCALE NEIGHBORHOOD

East Gate Exterior Day

In one of New Jersey’s most notable and historic settings, East Gate, the first luxury residential component in the redevelopment of the 1,226-acre former Fort Monmouth Army post, is welcoming its initial homeowners.

Developer RPM Development Group has announced closings are underway at the collection of 68 townhomes, duplexes and single-family residences being created in century-old Officer’s Housing buildings.    The noteworthy milestone is the next step in the transition of East Gate into an active and lively neighborhood and brings into focus the overall vision of Fort Monmouth as a vibrant Jersey Shore live/play center with upscale homes and lifestyle amenities and services, including the nearby Marina at Oceanport, parade grounds and open space, as well as an expected bowling alley, microbrewery, walking trails and The Fort Athletic Club which slated to open soon.

“Tremendous velocity from the onset of our sales program has resulted in a near sell-out of our initial release of homes,” says Michael Hong, Assistant Vice President of Development at RPM.     “It also means we’ll have a significant wave of homeowners move-in within the first few weeks of closings.  The surge in resident activity will provide new visitors an almost immediate look at the unique living environment at East Gate and its energetic neighborhood setting.”

Fewer than ten homes are available in the current inventory at East Gate as buyers rush to join the many now preparing to call the community home.  The remaining residences are priced from the high-$400,000s to the mid-$700,000s and provide some of the most desirable floorplans, including the popular three-bedroom duplex homes with 2.5 baths, spacious dining/living room, open concept kitchen, expansive master bedroom suite with lavish master bath and sitting room and bonus den.

LESS THAN TEN HOMES REMAIN IN FIRST HOUSING PHASE AS BUYERS RESPOND TO EAST GATE IN OCEANPORT, N.J.

East Gate Exterior

A feverish sales pace has left less than ten homes available in the initial housing phase at East Gate, the unique collection of townhomes, duplexes and single-family residences being created in century-old Officer’s Housing buildings on Monmouth County’s historic Fort Monmouth.

Since its much anticipated debut, the highly popular Jersey Shore neighborhood has enjoyed immediate success with buyers embracing the chance to live in a one-of-a-kind luxury home and a storied and notable residential location.  The strong activity recorded from the onset of the sales program has positioned East Gate to fast become an active and lively community when initial closings begin next month.

“We’ve experienced record-breaking sales velocity since the date we opened the doors to East Gate, and with several significant milestones on the immediate horizon, we expect interest to rise even further during the traditional strong fall selling season,” says Michael Hong, Assistant Vice President of Development at RPM Development Group, the community’s developer.

“Most noteworthy is the impending arrival of our first residents, which will begin the transition of East Gate into an established community and put its energetic lifestyle on display.  We’re confident once visitors see East Gate in full swing, they’ll be spurred to act quickly.”

East Gate is the first residential component brought to market in the repositioning of the 1,126-acre former Fort Monmouth U.S. Army post.    The community has been quick to differentiate itself thanks to eye-catching architecture and distinctive homes that offer an attractive alternative to the area’s conventional housing stock.  To create a nostalgic, yet modern living experience at the community, RPM Development has masterfully blended the original building exteriors which date back to the early 20th century with contemporary interiors boasting expansive living spaces and designer finishes and appointments.

SALES SOAR AT EAST GATE IN HISTORIC FT. MONMOUTH

East Gate is setting new heights of success as an impressive 20 of its 68 homes have been sold since the unique collection of townhomes, duplexes and single-family residences made its debut in Monmouth County’s historic Fort Monmouth.

It is unquestionably one of most notable residential sales openings in this region in recent memory, according to RPM Development Group, which has introduced the luxury offering in century-old Officer’s Housing buildings on the 1,126-acre former U.S. Army post.

East Gate has been quick to differentiate itself thanks to eye-catching architecture and distinctive homes that offer an attractive alternative to the area’s conventional housing stock.  To create a nostalgic, yet modern living experience at the community, RPM Development has masterfully blended the original building exteriors which date back to the early 20th century with contemporary interiors boasting expansive living spaces and designer finishes and appointments.

“An exceptionally high level of buyer interest has converted into many sales in a short period of time, validating our long held belief that Ft. Monmouth would fast become one of Monmouth County’s preferred new residential address,” says Michael Hong, Assistant Vice President of Development at RPM.

“The combination of luxury, one-of-a-kind homes, neighborhood soon to be ripe with a wealth of lifestyle amenities, and a storied Jersey Shore location has clearly resonated with a wide range of buyer types — from millennial first-time buyers and those moving up to larger homes to empty-nesters interested in scaling down from no-longer-needed single-family residences.”

East Gate is the first residential component to be introduced in the Ft. Monmouth redevelopment. Residences are priced from the high-$400,000s to the mid-$700,000s, with initial occupancy scheduled for early fall. Continue reading

BENJAMIN MOORE REVEALS ITS 2018 COLOR OF THE YEAR

e_coy_german_cover_48374_11aw_small“The whole thing is about being a detective,” says Benjamin Moore director of strategic design intelligence Ellen O’Neill as she spreads her case files (a stack of newspaper clippings, tear sheets, and various ephemera bound with a velvet ribbon) across a table at New York mainstay the Odeon. Each year O’Neill and her team of private eyes travel the globe on a top-secret investigation: to distill the ideas and imagery from design fairs, art exhibitions, and cultural happenings into a single color that sums up the contemporary zeitgeist. Considering they have more than 3,500 hues to choose from, it’s no simple feat.

Sometimes the case is difficult to crack (last year’s elusive Shadow required some cross-examination and 2016’s Simply White caused somewhat of a stir). But the 2018 verdict—like so much else of the present moment—was unapologetically strong-willed. It transformed the National Mall into a sea of color at the Women’s March in January, it starred in hit TV shows from the eerie Twin Peaks to the somehow eerier The Handmaid’s Tale. It stomped down practically every runway in February and stampeded onto the streets come September. It clad the glowing interior of a concert hall in Stockholm’s Royal College of Music. And it curved around the corners of Eero Saarinen’s elliptical newly restored TWA lounge. There was no doubt about it: O’Neill (and just about everyone else) was seeing red. Well, Caliente, to be exact—a warm, enveloping hue that’s easy to love.

The Journey to a Calm & Happy Home

2017-03-16_10-05-48There’s more to a beautiful home than just the decor and furnishings you put into it. Your home also needs to function well, and be a calm and happy respite from the rest of your hectic life. If you can’t say those things about your space, then it’s likely you might feel a little off-balance in your life, overall. A happy home is the finishing touch on a happy life.

How this particular deficit might manifest in your life is an overall feeling like you don’t have a good routine down; like you’re always catching up instead of keeping up. Instead of being a consistently calm environment, your home functions in cycles, first into a chaotic mess and then—after the resulting tornado of cleaning—spotless but short-lived harmony.

In order to bring your life into balance, it can help to see a top-down, bird’s-eye view.

If that sounds all too familiar, you need to find homeostasis. And a routine that works for you. Read through some of these resources to see if you can figure out how to bring this part of your life back into balance.

2017-03-02_11-47-28The economy is improving, interest rates are low and many consumers now find themselves in a great position financially to become a first-time homeowner. But the booming real estate market is resulting in rising home prices and increased competition for the most desirable properties.

The S& P/Case-Shiller national home-price index recently estimated that 2016 prices are within four percent of the peak in 2006. In some areas, low inventories around the country are making the situation even more challenging. Continue reading
