ma_236JERSEY CITY, NJ – The developer of Madox, the eco-friendly building in Jersey City’s historic Paulus Hook with views of the Manhattan Skyline and Statue of Liberty, is reporting significant winter activity at the collection of 131 luxury apartment homes.

Fields Development Group, a prominent developer with strong ties to the Jersey City marketplace, has indicated a high level of interest being expressed in the seven-story building with a considerable number of leases signed in the first few months of availability. Equally important, the initial residents of Madox have moved into their new rental homes, signifying the building’s transition from a development site into an active, lived-in community is well underway.

“December and January were extremely important months as Madox transformed itself into one of Paulus Hook’s signature residential addresses,” says James Caulfield, Jr., a principal of Fields Development Group. “As we progressed through our VIP preview period, potential renters jumped at the opportunity to become a part of this community resulting in a high level of leasing velocity.

“Additionally, over the past six weeks many of these renters have moved into their homes and visitors can now see exactly what Madox has to offer in terms of well-conceived homes, outstanding amenities and a convenient location which all come together in an exceptional lifestyle experience.”

Madox features a mix of one- and two-bedroom residences with some one-and two-bedroom homes also offering dens, a significant advantage for young couples looking to start a family or single professionals hoping to add a roommate without increasing their monthly rents by fully upgrading to a larger size apartment.

Initially priced from around the $1,800s, the well-designed residences at Madox offer from 480 to1,312 square feet of luxury living space complemented by high-end amenities and finishes. Found throughout the homes are custom hardwood floors, 9’ceiling heights, washer/dryer in every home, and master baths with custom vanities and tile. Gourmet kitchens feature custom 42” cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, gas cooking, Caesarstone countertops, tile floor and backsplash, and designer lighting and fixtures.

An exciting suite of onsite amenities will help foster a close-knit, family-friendly environment. Residents will enjoy a keyless entry system, 24-hour doorman, state-of-the art gym, a lobby lounge with a library, business center and communal technology table with iPad Station, iMac and PC; and a residents’-only lounge with children’s play area, yoga room, kitchenette, two TVs and more.

Social interaction will continue outside with a landscaped courtyard featuring a children’s play area, café seating and benches; two common 8th floor terraces and a common roof deck with hammocks, natural gas fired BBQ, fire pit, lounges for sun bathing and magnificent views of NYC, the Statue of Liberty and an active marina. Valet garage parking and bicycle storage will also be available.

Situated at 198 Van Vorst Street in Paulus Hook, Madox will offer residents a desirable, urban neighborhood setting boasting charming tree-lined streets dotted with historic brownstones and an eclectic array of local shops and restaurants. Several waterfront marinas border the neighborhood, while nearby Liberty State Park offers a green oasis for active and passive recreation, including miles of walking, biking and jogging paths, endless open space and spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Madox is on schedule to earn the first LEED certification for a residential building in Jersey City. Green elements 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% and energy consumption by 14%. The building will also be under contract for at least two years to provide 35% of its electricity from renewable sources.

Madox will also boast a 100% smoke-free environment, a unique lifestyle feature that is one of the first of its kind in New Jersey and a rarity in the New York Metropolitan marketplace.
