Arlington has become a magnet for fami- lies, empty nesters and active adults,” added Tragash. “In turn, it has emerged as an in- demand, high-barrier-to-entry submarket for multi-family investors.” According to Zweibel, the buyer was drawn to Carriage Club’s highway connectivity (Routes I-80, I-287, 46, 10 and the Garden State Pkwy.), walkability to NJ Transit bus and rail service at Mount Ar- lington Station and abundant on-site and nearby lifestyle services.

Victory Gardens does not have rent control. The seller was represented by James Delia, Esq. of Wells, Jaworski &Liebman LLP of Paramus, New Jersey.
