Lenox (207 Van Vorst) is the first of a planned pair of 300,000-square-foot luxury residential buildings in the Paulus Hook neighborhood of Jersey City, developed by Fields Development Group. It is part of a larger mixed-use development being constructed on a brownfield site that once held a chemical plant.
G/BA commissioned the building’s MEP systems as required for LEED Fundamental and Enhanced commissioning. Incentives are pending under the NJ Pay for Performance V3 program.
Lenox is a 15-story building containing 255 rental residences, with amenities including a fitness center, children’s playroom, game room, lounge, on-site parking, pet services, pool, and roof deck. The building also includes more than 7,200 square feet of ground-level retail space.
G/BA provided Fundamental and Enhanced commissioning services in support of the owner’s successful pursuit of LEED Silver certification (NC-2009). Tasks included development of a commissioning plan; design-phase review of construction documents as well as the Owner’s Project Requirements and Basis of Design documents; review of equipment submittals; installation, operation, and performance verification for commissioned systems; and oversight of owner training and third-party test and balance.
