NORTH BERGEN, NJ-Almost 400 years ago, explorer Henry Hudson sailed his tiny ship, the Half Moon, across the Atlantic Ocean and up the river that would eventually bear his name, supposedly the first European to lay eyes on the Palisades of what is now New Jersey.

Fast-forward to the year 2000, and the Fort Lee, NJ-based Barrett Cos. is recalling that ambitious voyage with its under-construction Half Moon Harbor apartment complex in North Bergen. Phase one is nearing completion.

The two-phase project will consist of two 12-story brick buildings on a 10-acre site that protrudes the Hudson River, ironically forming an inlet known by boaters for its half-moon shape. The two buildings will contain 507 one- and two-bedroom apartments, equipped with a optical-fiber backbone and Verizon video and cable wiring. The Edgewater, NJ firm Cybul & Cybul is the project architect. Leasing is expected to begin this fall.
