I just listed this 1 bedroom Mediterranean North coop for sale today. If you don’t know about coops, go to my article about this type of residence. Let’s start with an introduction to Mediterranean North.
Mediterranean Tower North
Med North is what most of call it but it’s really Mediterranean Tower North. There’s actually 3 towers: Med North, Med South and Med West. All were coop hi rise buildings until Med South (next to Med North) became a condominium a few years ago. Because Mediterranean North is so close to the George Washington Bridge, it’s very convenient to the Columbia Presbyterian Hospital Complex. As a result, there’s actually a jitney bus service just for people who work there.
This is a large hi rise building with all the luxury amenities you’d expect from 24/7 concierge services and door men to a play yard for children. It is a self managed building with a fully staffed office just off of the lobby entrance. The lobby, hallways and elevators were recently upgraded so this building has a decidedly elegant ambiance.
Because owners thought it was unfair to bundle all services together, several years ago some of the amenities became a la carte so to speak. As a result, only those members who want to use the outdoor swimming pool facilities pay a nominal fee. The same goes for the health club. Everyone has to include a basic cable charge of $68 in their monthly maintenance; you can add on additional cable options at your own expense.
Med North has always been a prestigious address. While it is a large building with 483 apartments, it is also an intimate community where people find new lifelong friends. Check out their website for more details.
23 D at 2100 Linwood Ave
My listing has just been completely painted, professionally cleaned and all wall to wall carpet replaced. It’s a top floor apartment on the 23rd floor facing west with truly amazing views of the mountains. Facing west has a great advantage – sunlight. Tons of sunlight pour into this coop unit nearly all day.
There is one large, open space for a living room/dining room area. This opens to the enclosed terrace which you’ll enjoy from spring through fall.
Because storage is always an issue with apartments, Med North was designed with a solution. Closets are large and many. They are so big that I can’t imagine you’ll need more.
The kitchen is square shaped which gives you more room than the typical apartment aisle kitchen. The feeling is open, bright and spacious. Location is so convenient too. While you’re near the floor laundry room and elevator, the apartment is very quiet.
Parking is always a concern for hi rise building shoppers. While parking spaces don’t stay with a unit when it’s sold, there are spaces available at a monthly fee of $60 for outside or $75 for indoor. You can also have overnight guest parking for $10 per night. Just make arrangements with the management office in advance.

23 D is on the market for $139,000. Maintenance is $1,064.28 This includes the basic cable cost of $68 monthly, gas, water (cold and hot), taxes and the underlying mortgage. Basically everything except electric.
To see this fresh and bright Mediterranean North coop for sale just call me at 201-741-8490. I don’t expect it to be on the market for long before it finds a buyer. Med North is very popular and this is a nice unit that’s an affordable entry to Fort Lee NJ.
