Sales open for high-end passive house condos in Hoboken

Sales have opened for the first multifamily passive house building in Hoboken, developer Bijou Properties announced Wednesday.

The property, Candela Lofts, is comprised of nine high-end condominiums located in a seven-story building at 1024 Adams St. It offers two-, three- and four-bedroom homes from 1,500 to 3,400 square feet. It features high ceilings, oversized windows, walk-in closets, private parking and more.

The passive house certified building will enable it to achieve high levels of energy efficiency, health and comfort. The building also can get certified for LEED Platinum from the U.S. Green Building Council.

Initial occupancy is slated for December. Homes are priced from $1.25 million.

“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,” Larry Bijou, managing partner of Bijou Properties, said.

“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.”

Nastasi Architects in Hoboken designed the space on the site of a former candelabra factory.
