A recently opened residential high-rise in downtown Jersey City has earned its LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Fisher Development Associates announced this week that its 45-story project, known as Vantage, has received the designation about six months after opening its doors. Designed by S9 Architecture, the glass curtain wall tower sits at 33 Park View Ave., featuring 448 apartments and some 5,000 square feet of retail space.
LEED, a sought-after designation from the USGBC, is short for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Fisher said its plans for Vantage included sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.
