The Hague Will Soon Complete the Beacon Complex


margaret hague maternity hospitalThe Beacon is about to open The Hague, their newest and final building. It will house 240 new rental units bringing the complex to 1153 total units. Once it opens the complex will become the largest National Historic Site in New Jersey.

Aptly named after Frank Hague (or maybe Margaret), The Hague building was originally the Margaret Hague Maternity Hospital, part of the Jersey City Medical Center complex. Over 350,000 people were born here over the course of its tenure.

The lobby features many original details that have undergone extensive restoration. The units feature high ceilings and large windows that let in lots of lights.

The finishes in the Hague will differ from the other Beacon buildings. Here they’ve opted for textured white cabinets and zebra wood styled flooring.

An official opening is scheduled for April 16th with a “Birthday Celebration” that will pay homage to its past life.
