Lantern Hill recently announced it will welcome its first residents in late spring. Those who had joined the priority list and reserved an apartment home at the New Providence, N.J., Erickson Living community, will be able to move in from the end of May through early July.

“There is so much excitement around our announcement that we’ll begin moving residents in late spring to early summer,” says Lantern Hill Sales Director Randy Carroll. 

Lantern Hill will open the 161 completed apartment homes, which sold out in just ten weeks. 

A handful of apartments have become available since the community sold out. 

“Occasionally, someone changes their plans for one reason or another, which is a boon for priority list members who haven’t had the opportunity to reserve a home yet or who may want to move sooner than they expected,” says Sales Counselor Kathy Banks.

Join the priority list

The only way to reserve an apartment home at Lantern Hill is to join the priority list. All it takes to join is a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and a $150-per-person nonrefundable application fee. When prospective residents submit their deposit, that date is noted as their priority list date. As apartment homes become available, the sales team gives first right of refusal to priority list members based on their joining date. 

Banks, who has lived in the area for almost 40 years, says Lantern Hill fills a need the region has had for a long time. “It’s a perfect solution for people living in this area who want to stay here when they retire.”

She adds that the limited supply of available apartment homes has driven demand, and she doesn’t expect them to last long. 

“Once this last handful of brand-new apartment homes sells out, it will be more than a year before we offer new apartments,” says Banks. “If your timeline has changed or you’d like to move in sooner, come meet with me or Jenn Kohan to see what’s available.”
