The Rialto The Capital At The Beacon

The Rialto The Capital At The Beacon Project Overview

The Jersey City Medical Center, a landmark Art Deco-styled medical complex built between 1928 and 1941, had been essentially vacant for decades. In 2008, New York-based Metrovest redeveloped the complex into a mix of condominiums and rental residences known as The Beacon, with a wide range of amenities. Metal Man Restoration was responsible for the metal restoration project of Buildings B & C, including restoring bronze and steel casement windows, bronze entranceways, and a cast iron canopy, and fabricating new radiator grille and railings.

The Problem

The Jersey City Medical Center complex had been vacant for decades, posing a challenge for redevelopment. The historic nature of the complex also presented challenges for restoration, particularly with regard to the metal elements of Buildings B & C.

The Solution

The redevelopment of the Jersey City Medical Center complex into The Beacon provided a solution to the challenge of the vacant complex, while the metal restoration project undertaken by Metal Man Restoration addressed the challenges presented by the historic nature of the buildings. The restoration of the metal elements helped to preserve the historic character of the buildings, while the rehabilitation of the complex as a whole was the largest Historic Preservation Tax Credit project in the nation. The adaptive reuse of the buildings into apartments/condominiums with a range of amenities ensured the continued use of the landmark complex for the benefit of the community.
