Bigger is better at Nine on the Hudson luxury condos

In a region where space often comes at one of the most expensive premiums in the country, it begets the question — is bigger always better? Regarding residential housing considerations, the answer for most people is an unequivocal yes. Rental options in greater New York City tend to feel like they’re getting smaller all the time. Nine on the Hudson, a new K. Hovnanian® West New York development at Port Imperial, New Jersey just minutes from Midtown via ferry service, is bucking this trend with an attractive portfolio of higher-than-average-square-footage luxury condos that provide owners with plenty of well-appointed room to move and live.

According to, the average size of an apartment in nearby Hackensack, New Jersey clocks in at a sparse 824 square feet, taking into account averages of merely 476 square feet for a standard studio, 707 square feet for a one-bedroom apartment and 1,051 square feet for a two-bedroom unit. (1) Meanwhile, just across the Hudson, Manhattan apartments run pretty much in tandem with their New Jersey counterparts when it comes to size with studios running 475 square feet on average, one-bedroom apartments 694 square feet and two-bedroom homes 1,015 square feet. Of course, Manhattan apartments also entail a significantly higher price tag than those in New Jersey, averaging $4,043 per month in rent as compared to a much more affordable $1,713-a-month average rent in Hackensack.
