It’s thisclose to the deliciousness that is Nicolo’s and a short stroll to the Bay Street Train Station.

Glen Ridge’s new residential community, Clarus Glen Ridge, has a July grand opening planned, according to JMF Properties. Located on Baldwin Avenue near the Montclair border, Clarus Glen Ridge is a collection of 110 modern rental residences and boasts lavish amenities.

Renters who avail themselves of the “Clarus” lifestyle, will enjoy “plush living spaces, exquisite finishes, and a curated collection of amenities that go above and beyond the industry standard for luxury and service.”

Prospective renters can join the Clarus Glen Ridge wait list at, and will receive the first invitations for private tours of the building and information on the community’s grand opening prices.

“Glen Ridge is the perfect location for the newest addition to our Clarus series of luxury rental properties. You can walk to shops, restaurants, parks, cultural attractions and mass-transit in downtown Montclair, but when you walk home you return to a quiet, relaxed suburban neighborhood, completely insulated from the hustle and bustle,” said JMF Properties Founder and Principal Joe Forgione. “A lot of thought went into customizing every single detail of this community and we are counting the days until we can officially announce its debut.”

Clarus Glen Ridge will offer renters a selection of one- and two-bedroom residences. Features in Clarus’ gourmet kitchens include gas range with Faber® Cristal Collection vented hood, quartz countertops with undermount stainless-steel sinks, European-style, two-tone cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances.

Additional details found throughout the homes include 9-foot ceilings, energy-efficient LED light fixtures, seven-inch composite plank floors, in-unit washer and dryer, oversized windows with custom shades, a high-performance heating and cooling system designed to keep residents’ climate control costs down, and spa-like baths with marble floors, walls and accents. Den units and private outdoor space will be available in select homes.

Amenities for all residents of Clarus Glen Ridge include a wellness center with state-of-the-art exercise equipment with touch consoles, cycling, TRX® suspension training, a heavy bag, kettlebells and more. There’s also a separate personal training studio offering Echelon® Reflect Touch touchscreens with both live streaming and on-demand training classes, including Zumba, yoga, kickboxing, strength, and cardio-focused workouts from a variety of certified trainers.

The central lobby and lounge features a two-sided fireplace, reading lounge, parlor with gas fireplace and wet bar, business center, theatre room, and billiards room with vintage billiards table. Residents will be able to enjoy a courtyard with seating areas, firepit, grills and more. And don’t forget dogs: there’s also a dog park that spans 300 feet in length. On-site covered parking, car charging stations, storage lockers, bike storage, 24/7 maintenance, and other conveniences and services will also be available to residents.

Clarus Glen Ridge is the second community by JMF Properties to carry the “Clarus” brand name; the other, Clarus Maplewood, is a multiple award-winning community that captured the 2018 “Community of the Year” honors for mixed-use communities from the Metropolitan Builders & Contractors Association
