will begin leasing in 2016.

FRANKLIN LAKES – Franklin Lakes Realty LLC has announced its completion schedule for Colonial Pointe Franklin Lakes. The 87-unit complex features an ultra high-tech 64-unit L-shaped main building located on Colonial Road in Franklin Lakes. Colonial Pointe has luxuriously appointed one- and two-bedroom apartments that boast technology-based living solutions such as true gigabyte fiber Internet speeds, a virtual doorman and many additional high-tech amenities. Phase II leasing will begin in 2016. Limited availability is left in Phase I.

“Colonial Pointe has received a strong response from the local community, as well as from those who work in town and the surrounding area,” said Lou Friedman, Managing Partner of Franklin Lakes Realty. “Our goal is to create a luxurious, technology-based living environment that is attractive to today’s renters. On a daily basis, we strive to deliver on our motto of ‘More Style, More Luxury, More Living.'”

Residences highlight nine-foot ceilings, gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, subway tile backsplashes, soft close cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. All apartments have an in-unit washer/dryer, and stylish plank flooring in the entry foyer, kitchen and laundry room. All bathrooms include ceramic tile surrounds to the ceiling, and 12 by 24 high-end floor tile. The building features classic architecture with keyless, FOB access controlled entrances, elevators, individually controlled central air conditioning and digital TV packages. Select units include an underground parking space.

“Colonial Pointe is one of the first buildings in New Jersey to offer high speed Internet with Wi-Fi access at gigabyte speed,” said Friedman. “We are using this technology to our advantage to make this a very user-friendly building.”

Colonial Pointe will also feature a virtual doorman. “Guests can simply push a button at the building entrance and their photograph will be sent directly to the resident’s smartphone,” said Friedman. “The resident will then have the opportunity to unlock the door remotely to give the guest access to the building.”

For added convenience, an electronic package room will be available. “Once a package is delivered to the virtual package room, the recipient will receive a pin number on their cell phone that they can use to retrieve their package,” said Friedman. “It’s very secure.”

The pet-friendly community also features a Residents’ Lounge with a gas fireplace, wet bar, refrigerator and a casually furnished terrace with upscale seating to relax and socialize.
