The Beacon

Meet the Beacon!


Welcome to The Beacon! Whether you’re a longtime resident or a history buff excited for a first look around, everyone will find something to love in our beautiful, historic complex. Once home to the Jersey City Medical Center, the buildings that make up The Beacon are now an elegant collection of apartment homes, part of a tight-knit community here in Jersey City.

Today, let’s take a tour of our six residential buildings: the Criterion, the Hague, the Mercury, the Orpheum, the Paramount, and the Tower.  Each building in The Beacon offers everything you need for top-notch Jersey City living!

So — who’s who at The Beacon?


The Criterion is an elegant 25-story building with housing options ranging from cozy studios to two-bedroom homes. It’s home to one of The Beacon’s well-equipped fitness centers and an Art Deco lobby. On the south side of the building, you’ll find fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty and downtown Manhattan. On the north side, the rich architecture of Jersey City opens up for miles.


The Hague offers beautiful apartments on fourteen floors, all arranged around a central courtyard. Like the Criterion, the Hague offers fantastic views of New York City and the Statue of Liberty. The Hague is our second largest building — and is known for its views and easy access to everything The Beacon has to offer!


The Mercury, situated next to our children’s playground, offers gorgeous views of the Great Lawn and downtown Jersey City. With studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom options available, you’ll find cozy space for one or room to spread out across sixteen floors. Life in the Mercury offers access to Club Aqua, which includes an indoor swimming pool, a fitness center, and two saunas.


The Orpheum is loved because of its elegance and access to Club Aqua, the chic fitness and spa facility. Choose from twenty residential floors and find home in one of our studio, one-, or two-bedroom apartments. Many of the Orpheum’s floor plans feature spacious walk-in closets and gorgeous city views.


The Paramount definitely stands out in The Beacon’s skyline. This twenty-one story building is a masterpiece of Art Deco architecture — and the center of The Beacon’s operations! Home to our leasing center and resident services office, the Paramount is a gathering place for events in our club room and sky lounge. It’s also where you’ll find the expansive fitness center, yoga studio, and dog run on the north side of the building. With so much to offer, the Paramount is a shining example of apartment living at its finest!


Spanning sixteen residential levels, the Tower offers everything a person could want in apartment living. Residents here enjoy views of the Statue of Liberty, downtown Manhattan, and — closer to home — Overlook Park and Jersey City. The Tower is located conveniently next to our covered parking garage and is both smoke-free and pet-free. It’s also directly next to our shuttle drop-off and pickup locations, where you’ll find convenient, quick transportation to both the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH Stations — free for Beacon residents!

Wherever you find yourself at The Beacon, you’ll discover a community ready to greet you with a “good morning,” an invitation to the next “Sing Your Heart Out” karaoke night, or a recommendation for the best Thai food delivery in all of Jersey City. Welcome home!
