Building and Land Technology (BLT) has opened the doors to Hague, a significant milestone that represents considerably more than the launch of a new 241-unit luxury rental building in Jersey City.
The sixth apartment building to open within The Beacon, Hague completes the effort to restore a collection of iconic architectural gems and transform them into a vibrant, urban residential destination.
With the final piece of the puzzle now in place, The Beacon stands as a national success story, a cherished piece of Jersey City’s storied past reborn as a modern living experience that is home to more than 2,000 residents, 1,155 residences, a selection of amenities and outdoor space.
“This is truly an historic milestone,” said John Masso, The Beacon’s regional manager. “BLT had a grand vision for these remarkable buildings, and to see them now fully reawakened as an inspired 21st-century use that is teeming with resident activity and once again an asset to the city is thrilling and rewarding.” Overlook Park, a 45,000-square-foot, landscaped oasis, features seating areas and grills against the panoramic backdrop of the Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor. There also is a 2-acre park with a children’s playground, organic garden and dog runs.
The opening of Hague brings to fruition the largest historic residential restoration project in New Jersey, and one of the largest in the country. Listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places, The Beacon’s buildings have been masterfully restored to recapture the dramatic architectural details and historic grandeur of their Art Deco-era origins€ marble walls, terrazzo floors, etched glass, gilded beams and moldings and bronze chandeliers gleam as they did more than 75 years ago.
The Beacon’s rental residences are contemporary and chic. Studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments with unique floor plans, feature high ceilings and gourmet chef’s kitchens with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and garbage disposals. Baths are adorned with cultured marble vanity tops, tile floors and glass shower doors. Residences also offer central heating and air conditioning and individual washers and dryers. The homes are bathed in natural light and offer outstanding views.
The apartments are priced from $1,595 a month, with immediate occupancy available. Hague adds to the broad range of options available at The Beacon as each building offers its own distinctive character and ambiance. Residents and their guests will marvel at Hague’s elegant lobby, as well as an attractive interior courtyard with a graceful fountain, seating areas and grills that provide a perfect setting for outdoor relaxation.
The 23-story Paramount features some of the most dramatic spaces and distinctive architectural elements found within the residential collection. Its voluminous two-story lobby€” with 12 marble columns and a grand stairwell of white and gray marble that leads to a spacious marble-trimmed mezzanine has been featured in several movies. Tower, a 15-story, 128-unit building, is pet and smoke free and includes a landscaped Zen garden with comfortable seating and a fire pit, and a 15th-floor sky lounge. Criterion features 271 luxury apartments, a beautifully-adorned lobby, and its own suite of amenities tailored to today’s urban professionals.
Found throughout the buildings are 24-7 state-of-the-art fitness centers, restored art deco theaters with oversized screens, children’s playrooms, resident lounges, Wi-Fi in common areas and landscaped courtyards with fire pits.
Residents of The Beacon also have access to complimentary high-frequency shuttle service to the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH/Ferry Stations, and are close to Jersey City’s downtown district, which includes NY Waterway Ferry terminals and PATH stations, as well as restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and cultural attractions.
