A developer has unveiled new details about a 10-unit condominium project in Hoboken that is built to achieve “rigorous” energy efficiency, with plans to launch sales this summer.
In a news release this week, Bijou Properties said it has nearly completed the seven-story luxury building known as Candela Lofts. The property, located at 1024 Adams St., will be the state’s first luxury multifamily building that meets a so-called passive house standard, which largely centers on construction that results in ultra-low energy needs.
As such, Bijou said Candela Lofts is designed to achieve “a quantifiable and rigorous level of energy efficiency” with superinsulation and an airtight building envelope. The firm tapped Nastasi Architects to oversee the design, which aims to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Bijou plans to launch sales in June, offering a mix of homes ranging from two to four bedrooms with high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, Miele appliances, and private outdoor space. The Hoboken-based developer also touted views of the New York City skyline for some of the units.
