A recently opened residential high-rise in downtown Jersey City has earned its LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Fisher Development Associates announced this week that its 45-story project, known as Vantage, has received the designation about six months after opening its doors. Designed by S9 Architecture, the glass curtain wall tower sits at 33 Park View Ave., featuring 448 apartments and some 5,000 square feet of retail space.
LEED, a sought-after designation from the USGBC, is short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Fisher said its plans for Vantage included sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by the USGBC and to become LEED certified,” said Brian Fisher, principal of Fisher Development Associates. “Vantage is an excellent example of how urban buildings can promote a cleaner, healthier lifestyle for residents while positively impacting the environment. We’re proud of this important achievement which reflects our company’s dedication to green building practices.”
Vantage is located between Luis Munoz Marin Boulevard and South Cove in Jersey City’s Liberty Harbor North neighborhood. The luxury property has attracted renters with its sweeping views and proximity to the Liberty Harbor light rail station, the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH stations and NY Waterway ferry service.
Apartments range from studios to two-bedroom units and are priced from the low $2,000s.
Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, swimming pool and a cyber café, along with a health club, children’s playroom and business center, according to a news release. Some of those features are concentrated in a sixth-floor outdoor amenity deck and 45th-floor sky lounge.
