JERSEY CITY AND BEYOND - The Madox, Jersey City's first "green" residential rental development, is now accepting the names of prospective tenants interested in moving to the Paulus Hook complex once it is completed.
Designed as the first LEED-certified residential building in Jersey City, the Madox, at 198 Van Vorst St., will include 131 luxury apartments, many with views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline beyond.
The new complex is being constructed in accordance with U.S. Green Building Council guidelines for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings which incorporate responsible site development, energy efficient design, and sustainable materials to create environmentally-sensitive urban living environments. Green elements being incorporated into Madox include a PV Solar Array and vegetation on the roof, electric car charging stations, and systems to reduce water consumption by over 45 percent and energy consumption by 14 percent. The building will also be under contract for at least two years to provide 35 percent of its electricity from renewable sources.
Madox will also boast a 100% smoke-free environment, a rarity in this area.
Monthly rents will begin at around $1,800 and leasing is expected to officially begin in October. The first new residents to the Madox will be able to move in November.
Interested prospects who add their name to the list will be able to take guided VIP "Hard Hat" tours of the building. These tours will give prospective renters a firsthand look at the units, amenities, and landscaped outdoor spaces at the development. Leasing is expected to officially open at Madox in early October and initial occupancy is scheduled in early November.
