The Tower: Latest opening at The Beacon allows for wider range of options


Co-developers Building & Land Technology (BLT) and Metrovest have unveiled a new luxury rental building at The Beacon in Jersey City that features modern residences, private amenities, spectacular views — and a 100 percent smoke-free and pet-free environment.

The fourth rental building to open at The Beacon in the past two years, The Tower offers 128 luxury studios, one- and two-bedroom residences housed in an 18-story building that blends modern flare with a greener, healthier way of living.

“We’re committed to delivering a modern, urban lifestyle experience at The Beacon with a collection of uniquely designed residences and extensive indoor and outdoor amenities that cater to every need and indulgence,” said Courtney Phillips of BLT.

“The decision to introduce The Tower with a 100 percent smoke-free and pet-free setting advances that initiative as it allows for a wider range of options within The Beacon,” said Phillips.
Private amenities within The Tower will further enhance residents’ daily lives.

These include a landscaped zen gar-den with comfortable seating and mood lighting, a 24/7 Cybex Club and yoga room with Wi-Fi and locker rooms, the Liberty Lounge, a multipurpose room with flat-screen televisions, gaming tables and video systems; and an 18th-floor sun deck offering spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of Liberty.

Like the Mercury, Orpheum and Paramount buildings at The Beacon, The Tower’s exterior has been re-stored to recapture the dramatic architectural details and historic grandeur of its Art Deco-era origin. Blending perfectly with The Tower’s historic spaces is a collection of new, modern residences with monthly rents starting at $1,750 a month.

The apartments feature high ceilings, Oakplank flooring and gourmet chef’s kitchens with granite countertops and General Electric Energy stainless-steel appliances and garbage disposals.

Elegant baths are adorned with cultured marble vanity tops, tiled floors and glass shower doors. Each residence also offers central heating and air conditioning, individual washers and dryers, and smart card key access, while panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, Liberty State Park and Upper Bay are available from many residences.

While The Tower is offering the first pet-free environment within The Bea-con, the community remains openly pet-friendly with two large dog runs providing considerable outdoor space for canines. The dog runs are part of a larger urban oasis at the Beacon, which also includes the 45,000-square-foot Over-look Park that offers panoramic Manhattan skyline views and an additional 2-acre park with children’s playground and organic garden spaces.

The substantial offering of open space makes the Beacon one of the greenest urban residential communities in the region.

BLT’s commitment to service is further demonstrated through a suite of benefits to Beacon residents, including courtesy shuttle transportation to the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH/Ferry stations, valet and self-garage on-site parking, 24-hour on-site maintenance and Smart Key apartment access. The ActiveBuilding resident portal allows residents to pay their rent online, chat with neighbors, join activities and place service requests.

Beacon residents also enjoy proximity to Jersey City’s vibrant down-town district, which is celebrated for its comprehensive public transportation system, including numerous New York Waterway Ferry terminals and PATH stations offering convenient service into Manhattan, as well as NJ Transit Light Rail and accessibility to the Holland and Lincoln tunnels and the New Jersey Turnpike. The area also is known for its active artist’s community, growing music scene and shop-ping, dining and nightlife venues.
