It seems there’s no end in sight to the demand for new luxury apartments at The Beacon in Jersey City as nearly 50 percent of the community’s latest offering of 271 residences has been leased since August.
The spirited rental activity at Criterion, which rises 18 stories above The Beacon’s elevated site overlooking the Manhattan skyline and Liberty State Park, follows the successful lease of four other luxury apartment buildings at The Beacon, according to Building & Land Technology (BLT), which is developing the community’s collection of residences and incomparable indoor and outdoor amenities.
Criterion continues BLT’s commitment to delivering a desirable urban lifestyle experience with modern studios, one- and two-bedroom residences complemented by well-thought-out amenities and services. Immediate occupancy is available.
“Each building at The Beacon offers its own distinctive character and ambiance, blending historic architecture, modern finishes and private amenities to provide a wide range of options for residents within the community,” said John Masso, The Beacon’s regional manager. “Criterion is no exception as its beautifully adorned lobby, unique amenities and spectacular views have clearly resonated with today’s urban professionals.”
Like the Mercury, Orpheum, Paramount and Tower buildings at The Beacon, Criterion’s exterior has been expertly restored to recapture the dramatic architectural details and historic grandeur of its Art Deco-era origin. Blending perfectly with Criterion’s historic spaces are new, modern residences with monthly rents starting at $1,595. The apartments feature high ceilings and gourmet chef’s kitchens with granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and garbage disposals. Elegant baths are adorned with cultured marble vanity tops, tile floors and glass shower doors. Each residence also offers central heating and air conditioning and individual washers and dryers.
A full suite of private amenities and services within Criterion further enhances residents’ daily lives. These include a state-of-the-art gym, 18th-floor Sky Lounge offering panoramic views, a Quiet Room, a children’s playroom, and a landscaped courtyard with seating, barbecue grills and a fire pit. Residents also appreciate the building’s Package Concierge, an innovative, digital system that notifies residents when packages have been delivered and provides them with 24/7 access to their secured locker at their convenience.
In addition to private amenities, Criterion residents also enjoy The Beacon’s unrivaled open space, including the 45,000-square-foot Overlook Park offering panoramic Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor views, numerous grills and seating areas; an additional 2-acre park with children’s playground and organic garden spaces, and expansive dog runs providing considerable outdoor space for canines. The substantial offering of recreation areas makes The Beacon one of the greenest urban residential communities in the region.
BLT’s commitment to service is further demonstrated through exclusive transportation benefits to Beacon residents, including high-frequency courtesy shuttle service to the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH/ferry stations. Beacon residents also enjoy proximity to Jersey City’s vibrant downtown district, which is celebrated for its comprehensive public transportation system, including numerous NY Waterway Ferry terminals and PATH stations offering convenient service to Manhattan, as well as NJ Transit Light Rail and accessibility to the Holland and Lincoln tunnels. The area also is flourishing with new restaurants, cafes, coffee houses and cultural attractions.
In addition, the new Citi Bike Jersey City bike sharing program includes a station at The Beacon. It is one of 35 stations citywide that houses 350 bikes to provide a new, environmentally friendly, healthy and affordable 24/7 transportation option for Jersey City.
