Union as well as Essex, Morris and Sussex counties. “Elizabeth has become a focus for investors seeking value-add and property repo- sitioning opportunities thanks to its strong, working-class tenancy, high foot traffic and vibrant neighborhoods,” said Tragash. “With a 65% renter percentage, Elizabeth stands out as one of the nation’s top cities where the housing stock is predominantly comprised of apartment buildings. As a result, their strong occupan- cies render them an extremely attractive investment.” Ranked as very walkable with good transit, Elizabeth has several distinct neighbor- hoods. Elmora, which encom- passes Pennington Avenue, boasts some of the region’s best restaurants, shops and boutiques along with a few of the city’s luxury high-rises. The Downtown district is Eliza- beth’s most historic and diverse place in the city. Bellwood Gardens, located at 450-454Walnut St., is centrally situated within the Downtown Madison Avenue/Mary Street section comprised of older, well-established small-to-mid- sized apartment buildings constructed between 1940 and 1969. Built in 1940, this well- maintained 40-unit three-story building features an all-brick façade close to schools, shop- ping and the Elizabeth and North Elizabeth rail stations, both of which are less than a mile away. The 38-unit Bar- bara Hall Apartments, also located Downtown within the Broad Street/E. Grand Street section, features three stories and a mix of apartment layouts throughout. In Elmora, the 28-unit 928 Pennington Ave., complex is just one block from Warinanco Park and its popular shopping district. Each of the 28 units features updates that include hardwood floors, modern kitch- ens and baths and spacious liv- ing rooms and bedrooms. “Multi-family investors are not only drawn to Elizabeth for its reputation as one of the nation’s top-ranked renter cit- ies, it also is known for being among the highest in terms of train ridership,” said Tragash. NJ Transit’s Northeast Cor- ridor and North Jersey Coast lines serve both Elizabeth Station and North Elizabeth Station and Amtrak service is along the Northeast Corridor. n
