In creating the premier homes at 118 Madison Street, Chartier Group, in partnership with Pintak Development, has set out to not only achieve LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council — a lofty goal unto itself — but to do so while crafting carefully considered, gorgeous living environments that surround residents in luxury and comfort. To that end, painstaking attention to detail has gone into constructing four energy-efficient duplex homes, each offering five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms across approximately 2,700 square feet of living space. And, for early buyers, the opportunity to choose select finishes, appliances and landscaping offers a level of customization that is rare in the Hoboken condo marketplace.
From the ground-floor parking garage to the vegetated, “living roof” decks, each bespoke home conserves water and energy, offers high levels of air quality and humidity control while maximizing comfort and enjoyment. Concrete construction with 8-inch floor slabs, triple-pane windows and sound-attenuating insulation provides a serene environment, highly livable in both hot summers and cold winters. Airtight construction, filtered air, high-efficiency multi-zone HVAC and LED lighting attend to air quality and energy usage, while dual-flush toilets that use reclaimed rainwater address water conservation. Throughout the building, materials have been specifically selected for their low- or no-toxicity characteristics with much of the brick from the previous structure re-used in the building’s current iteration. In fact, a full 90 percent of construction waste for the entire project has been diverted from landfills and recycled.
Beyond premium green features, 118 Madison provides amenities and finishes that are a joy to live with and behold. Each duplex home includes ample outdoor space in the form of a roughly 1,000-square-foot garden or an approximately 345-square-foot green roof deck with additional open vegetated area. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximize daylight at every turn, while beautiful solid oak hardwood flooring runs underfoot. Open, chef-designed modern kitchens are anchored by large center islands and boast energy-efficient appliances and ample storage. In the master suites, residents will enjoy oversized windows, massive walk-through closets and en suite bathrooms outfitted with soaking tubs, separate walk-in showers and dual-sink vanities. Secondary bedrooms are situated near well-appointed full bathrooms and include extra-large closets and more big windows. Energy-efficient, in-unit washer-dyers offer the ultimate in conservation and convenience, and with stroller and bicycle storage, plus electric vehicle charging, 118 Madison fully supports its residents’ devotion to living green, sustainable lifestyles.
“118 Madison demonstrates the remarkable ability for sustainable, green buildings to create incredibly comfortable, impeccably designed living spaces that are both energy and water efficient,” notes developer Thomas Chartier, founder and president of Chartier Group. A licensed professional engineer, LEED-accredited professional and Certified Passive House Consultant, Chartier is a devoted proponent of a green future for Hoboken. He is the chairman of the Committee for a Green Hoboken, co-chairman of the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce’s Urban Planning & Sustainability Council, and a member of Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s Green Team, charged with promoting environmental sustainability in the city. “Hoboken’s sensitive waterfront location and vulnerability to flooding make it an ideal location for ardent environmental action, and 118 Madison reflects what’s possible when we wholeheartedly embrace the possibility of green living,” he says.
Known as “The Mile Square City,” beautiful Hoboken offers small-town living alongside incredible proximity to New York City. Numerous public transportation options provide easy access to the immediate Hudson-Bergen area and into the city with PATH, ferry, light rail and NJ Transit buses and trains all nearby. An exciting array of dining, entertainment and shopping destinations blanket the area, and access to outdoor space is unbeatable offering waterfront recreation and breathtaking New York City views.

Downtown Jersey City homeowners nervously welcomed the New Year cogniz
"We began our home search with Shaye Lastra in Spring 2013. After speaking with several realtors, Shaye was the person we wanted to work with because she had an exceptionally work ethic, and was very knowledgeable about the area and process.
Shaye and her team showed my husband and I several homes, and helped us put in several offers (we were out-bid). Shaye was very organized and thorough, and constantly checked in and followed up with us, which was very important as we were searching for a property in an extremely competitive market. She was very easy to reach and always available (even on nights and weekends), and was prompt with returning calls when she was not able to pick up the phone herself.
In the end, we purchased a home through a different realty company because the seller had an exclusive contract through a different broker. Shaye fully encouraged us to pursue the home, despite the fact that this would mean the loss of a sale for her and we had been working with her for months. She even put us in touch with a realtor within the other company whom she trusted.
Even though she was no longer our realtor, Shaye kept in touch with us throughout. Due to the rapport we had built, we called her several times throughout the purchasing process to ask for advice when our realtor was on vacation, and when we needed an unbiased opinion. I am sorry that we were not able to finish the process with Shaye, but we are so grateful for having begun the process with her. I highly recommend Shaye for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Jersey City/Hoboken area."
