The Beacon
Jersey City Medical Center
residential complex



  • The Jersey City Medical Center has been replaced by the Wilzig Hospital.
  • Plans for its redevelopment, called the Beacon, will occur in three stages.
  • The initial stage will target Buildings B and C, turning them into 315 condominium units, a rooftop restaurant, a public pre-K /daycare center, and 64,821 square feet of office/retail space.
  • When completed in 2010, the complex will feature 1,200 condominium units, a public theater, a gourmet market, parks, shops, a dog run, a library and business center, screening rooms, a spa and a museum devoted to the Jersey City Medical Center.
  • The Jersey City Medical Center was spearheaded by Mayor Frank Hague, who wanted to create a model for medical services to the urban poor.
  • Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is New Jersey's largest example of Art Deco architecture.
  • State law requires the developers to restore the facades, lobbies, and other historically significant features.
