Modera Lofts, Jersey City, N.J. This century-old warehouse building encompasses almost an entire city block and has been redeveloped as modern residential loft apartments while maintaining its original distinct character and historical industrial appearance. Atop the historic structure, totaling 12,565 square feet, are several roof decks that offer a variety of amenities, including outdoor kitchens, lounge seating, outdoor televisions and fire pits, game tables, a dog run, and an outdoor movie theater with amphitheater seating and a multi-purpose, synthetic lawn panel. The use of ipe decking contrasts with the industrial feel of corrugated metal panels. Original mechanical elements, such as the heavy steel freight elevator doors and gears, were strategically placed as rooftop artwork, creating an interesting and immersive setting. The Asbury, Asbury Park, N.J. The long vacant and neglected 3-acre Asbury Park Salvation Army building is reborn as a stylish boutique hotel, 'The Asbury.' The city's first new hotel in more than 50 years, The Asbury offers guests and visitors a plethora of experiences. The Asbury mashes up Asbury Park's Victorian-era history, rock-n-roll present, and shiny future into a new kind of social hub. The Asbury is for all kinds of people, just like Asbury Park itself - the mix is what creates a sense of fun and adventure. Multiple outdoor venues, including The Pool, The Beergarden, The Baronet (a 4,000-sqaure-foot rooftop movie venue) and Salvation (a 4,000-square-foot rooftop bar), make The Asbury a compulsive hangout for guests, locals and visitors.
