The Beacon Jersey City honored with two historic preservation awards


The New Jersey Historic Preservation Office presented Building and Land Technology (BLT) with historic preservation awards for its successful restoration of two 20th-century Art Deco buildings in Jersey City, which have been transformed into luxury multifamily apartments.

The recently completed Criterion and Hague apartment buildings, which are located within The Beacon complex, were recognized during the 26th annual New Jersey Historic Preservation Awards ceremony. The awards honor projects, groups and individuals dedicated to preserving the state’s architectural, archaeological and cultural history. The completion of these properties fulfills BLT’s ambitious effort to thoroughly restore a collection of iconic architectural gems and transform them into a vibrant, urban residential community. Listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places, The Beacon’s architecturally significant buildings have been re-purposed as a modern living experience, which today is home to more than 2,000 residents, 1,155 apartments and many amenities.
