Veris Residential this week launched leasing at Haus25, a 56-story residential tower at 25 Christopher Columbus Drive in Jersey City. The building features 750 rental apartments engineered for energy efficiency.
Designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the building is constructed to LEED Silver certification standards and is on track to be one of the most water-efficient residential properties in the city. Resource-efficient building systems include solar-powered hydropanes that extract water from the air and distribute it to drinking fountains on the roof deck, toilets, and shower heads that optimize water flow, and outside at-curb bioretention swales to collect and divert runoff.
Haus25 also offers 24 electric vehicle charging stations in the building’s on-site parking garage and 375 bike parking spaces. To help reduce residents’ monthly utility bills, the building features combined heat and power, or CHP units, that convert natural gas into electricity and heat and provide on-site energy generation while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Veris Residential has also partnered with Logical Buildings to offer residents an app that shares real-time data on energy usage and individual carbon emissions.
