JERSEY CITY, NJ — A residential development in the region is expanding yet again with the launch of Criterion, a new offering of 271 luxury apartments located within The Beacon in Jersey City.
Rising 18 stories above The Beacon’s elevated site overlooking the Manhattan skyline and Liberty State Park, Criterion offers a new level of urban sophistication with modern studios, one- and two-bedroom residences complemented by amenities and services. Immediate occupancy is available.
Criterion follows the successful lease-ups of four other luxury apartment buildings at The Beacon in the past few years, according to Building & Land Technology (BLT), which is developing the community’s collection of residences and amenities.
“The Beacon’s uniquely-designed apartments, dramatic views, considerable outdoor space and attractive price points continue to drive leasing activity at the community,” said Courtney Phillips of BLT. “Each building offers its own distinctive character and ambiance, blending historic architecture and modern finishes, and providing a wide range of options for residents within The Beacon. Criterion is no exception as its desirable location within the community, beautifully-adorned lobby, and private amenity offerings are sure to appeal to today’s urban professionals.”
Blending perfectly with Criterion’s historic spaces are brand new, modern residences with monthly rents starting at $1,750 a month. A full suite of private amenities and services within Criterion will further enhance residents’ daily lives. These include a state-of-the-art gym, 18th-floor Sky Lounge, a Quiet Room, a children’s playroom, and a landscaped courtyard with seating, barbecue grills and a fire pit. Residents will 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 will also enjoy The Beacon’s unrivaled open space, including the 45,000 s/f Overlook Park, numerous grills and seating areas; an additional 2-acre park with children’s playground and organic garden spaces, and two expansive dog runs providing considerable outdoor space for canines.
BLT’s commitment to service is further demonstrated through a suite of exclusive benefits to Beacon residents, including courtesy shuttle transportation to the Grove St. and Exchange Place PATH/Ferry Stations, on-site parking, 24-hour on-site maintenance, Community Concierge and Smart Key Apartment access. n
