Candela ExteriorHOBOKEN, N.J – Sales have officially opening for the first Passive House multi-family building in New Jersey, its developer Bijou Properties has announced.

Candela Lofts, a boutique collection of just 9 high-end condominiums located in a seven-story building at 1024 Adams Street, is poised to set a new standard for luxury and sustainable living on New Jersey’s Hudson River Gold Coast.  The Passive House certified building will enable it to achieve a quantifiable and rigorous level of energy efficiency and deliver maximum health and indoor comfort.  The contemporary building has also been designed to achieve LEED Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

Opening at a time when rental product still dominates the Hudson County market and demand for new upscale condominiums with great proximity to Manhattan is on the rise, Candela Lofts is offering lavish, one-of-a-kind two-, three and four-bedroom homes with high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, sleek cabinetry and Miele appliances, and private outdoor space.  Some homes will boast magnificent views of the New York City skyline.  Condominiums also include private parking.

Residences at Candela Lofts will range from 1,500 to 3,400 square feet with initial occupancy expected in December, 2018.  Homes are priced from $1.25 million.

Candela Duplex InteriorBijou Properties has been a recognized leader in the field of sustainable green development in Hudson County and beyond for over two decades.   The Hoboken-based company has found success with a commitment to introducing premium, environmentally-friendly projects by utilizing the most innovative green design techniques and building practices to conserve and integrate energy efficiency throughout the entire design and construction process.

Candela Lofts is the culmination of the efforts of signature eco-building, developed to achieve the most stringent green-building certification used around the world today.  Passive House is an international standard which helps building designers create durable, comfortable and healthy buildings, while dramatically reducing energy consumption.  This is accomplished through simple ‘passive’ measures such as high quality insulation and air-sealing of the building envelope, 24/7 filtered fresh air and superior indoor air quality through carefully designed mechanical and ventilation systems, and the use of the highest performing window and doors available.

“This building is the first of its kind in New Jersey and will provide features and systems that can’t be found in any other residential condominium,” says Larry Bijou, managing partner of the firm that bears his name.  “These include a dedicated ventilation unit that continuously provides fresh air throughout the entire living space, creating a healthier environment.  An added level of comfort and privacy created by high quality insulation and high performance windows and doors provide a noise barrier between what is inside your home and the urban landscape outside.  All of these practices add up to lower energy costs for heating and cooling for owners.”

The renowned architectural firm Nastasi Architects of Hoboken has created Candela Lofts on the site of a former candelabra factory.  Building upon the site’s rich history, Candela Lofts establishes a new threshold for comprehensive sustainability in residential design, advanced energy modeling, integrated building systems and progressive building envelopes.

Designed as a collection of state-of-the-art residences, Candela Lofts offers the unprecedented combination of uncompromised luxury coupled with the most advanced building performance guidelines in the world, providing the homeowner the best of both worlds; science and design.

Enclosed by a rich and variegated stone façade, large deep recessed openings expose the warm sunlit environment of the building’s interior. Utilizing continuous insulation, high performance triple glazed windows imported from Austria and an air-tight building envelope provides the basis for a highly sustainable and extremely comfortable living environment.
