More than 300 new luxury apartments are coming to Fort Lee as part of a newly announced partnership between UNLMTD Real Estate and Fiat, the global automaker, at a building whose residents will have access to an on-site fleet of electric vehicles.
The companies on Wednesday said the development known as FIAT House, located at 2100 North Central Road, is slated to open early next year at the foot of the George Washington Bridge. Its debut will coincide with the North American launch of the all-electric Fiat 500e, dovetailing with the plan for a distinctive car-sharing program at the property involving the newly unveiled model.
The project is also slated to include more than 30,000 square of upscale amenities, concierge services and community events, while boasting a location at the nexus of eight major highways and minutes from New York City.
“Collaborating with FIAT on this endeavor forges a unique opportunity to transcend traditional real estate development boundaries,” said Gabriella LoConte, development lead of UNLMTD Real Estate. “We envision a future where people embrace mobility, live efficiently and experience life to the fullest. We look forward to bringing that vision to life in a dynamic location, where in a few minutes of time, one can easily bike over the George Washington Bridge to Manhattan or just as easily access unparalleled hiking and walking trails on the Palisade cliffs.”
UNLMTD and Fiat said the partnership stems from their common vision of the future of urban living, one that seamlessly integrates connectivity, community, sustainability and style. They added that the collection studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom rentals, which will include some furnished homes, are inspired by the design ethos of the Fiat 500, while the automaker’s brand will be woven throughout the property.
“Fiat is a love brand around the world and our partnership with UNLMTD has created a very unique opportunity to showcase what Fiat stands for: sustainable mobility with optimistic, forward-looking living,” said Olivier Francois, CEO of Fiat and global chief marketing officer of Stellantis, the automaker’s parent company. “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this natural collaboration, which is bolstered by the simultaneous grand opening of FIAT House and launch of the new Fiat 500e for North America early next year.”
