Avora, an uberluxury condominium building in Weehawken, has topped out at 11 stories. Situated right next to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal on the New Jersey waterfront’s edge with unobstructed views of New York City, Avora will feature 184 residences, 6,000 square feet of street-level retail space, and unparalleled amenities. Pre-construction sales started strong and initial occupancy is scheduled for early 2018.
Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner and hundreds more involved with the development gathered recently to celebrate the construction milestone. At the event, John Ho, CEO of Landsea Holdings Corporation, Avora’s developer, called the building “iconic” and a combination of “vanguard design, outstanding amenities, an incomparable waterfront setting, and progressive sustainable building practices.”
Named “Community of the Year” by the New Jersey Builder’s Association, Avora is ideal for commuters located only steps away from lightning fast ferry service to Midtown and Downtown at Port Imperial Ferry Terminal and its stunning stepped design, conceived by world-renowned architects IBI Group, maximizes the majestic views of the Hudson River and Manhattan.
One, two, and three-bedroom residences are available plus a limited offering of duplex penthouses. Priced starting from $800,000 to over $4 million, the second phase of homes is for sale after the first phase’s stellar sales performance. High-end finishes will include nine-foot ceilings, professional kitchens, spa-like bathrooms, and balconies or terraces with sweeping City views.
Avora’s amenities will include a lavish lobby with concierge, private screening theater, business center, elegant boardroom, a grand salon lounge with a bar and catering kitchen, on-site pet grooming, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. On the third floor with Manhattan as a backdrop, a landscaped outdoor plaza will feature a pool, sun deck, lounge, grilling stations, and a fire pit. Avora will also offer a secure parking garage, bicycle storage, and residents’ storage.
“Avora has enjoyed widespread appeal,” said Gabe Pasquale, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Landsea. “The extraordinary riverfront location has evolved into the destination of choice for those seeking luxury condominium living along the Gold Coast.”
