Orange, NJ,  – As part of its newly announced Good Neighbor Program, PEEK Properties is offering special leasing incentives for educators, nursing professionals and first responders at The HIGHLAND, located at 416 Highland Ave. in the southwest section of Orange, N.J. The newly constructed 138-unit, five-story upscale apartment building is the company’s latest luxury addition to the city’s apartment-rental housing stock, which also includes PEEK’s Orange Crossing redevelopment downtown.

“At PEEK, we understand the vital role these professionals play in our communities and the challenges they face when it comes to finding high-quality housing that is affordable and offers proximity to their places of work,” said Darla Rodriguez, director of property management. “As Good Neighbors, we believe that through these incentives we can help our teachers, nurses, police officers, fire fighters and EMTs live comfortably and safely in the community or near the communities in which they dedicate themselves to helping others, from the very young to the elderly.”

To be eligible, applicants must provide proof of certification and employment at a state-accredited school, healthcare facility or first responder employer. Those employed in Orange are given priority. Interested individuals can now arrange private tours by appointment.

Among the incentives, PEEK is offering two months rent-free with an 18-month lease or a 12-month lease with the security deposit insurance paid by PEEK for up to two years. In addition, PEEK is providing one-year Netflix or Hulu subscriptions for featured units.

Situated at the Orange-West Orange boundary and a five-minute walk to NJ Transit’s Highland Station, The HIGHLAND features a mix of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom open-concept layouts ranging from 533 SF to 1,163 SF. Apartments feature vaulted ceilings, a balcony or patio, vinyl flooring and in-unit washer/dryer. Island kitchen finishes include white-washed cabinetry, a pantry, white subway-tile backsplash and quartz countertops with a stainless-steel appliance package with a dishwasher and a microwave.

On-premises community and outdoor spaces range from a fitness center, resident lounge, tenant storage and outdoor courtyard deck with chaises, gas grills, fire pits and a dog park. Surface-lot and covered garage parking with EV chargers are available on site.

The HIGHLAND’s tree-lined residential neighborhood is also Orange’s most-expensive district where demand for real estate is above average, according to The immediate-area’s quaint character is derived from an older, well-established housing stock built between 1940 and 1969 and the introduction of new midrise apartments that are adding to the neighborhood’s character.

Orange is centrally situated within New Jersey’s East Essex submarket, which connects the collective “Oranges.” These include the urban hubs of East Orange and Orange as well as its suburban counterparts South Orange and West Orange, all of which have their own thriving business districts and recreational, cultural and entertainment offerings.

Positioned at the Crossroads of New Jersey, where I-280 and the Garden State Parkway intersect, the region’s highway network of the New Jersey Turnpike and Route 21 rounds out NJ Transit’s extensive rail and bus network. Commuter rail at Highland Station offers service along the Morris and Essex Lines, Morristown Line and Gladstone Branch, connecting to New York Penn Station, Hoboken Terminal, Hackettstown and Gladstone.
