One of Jersey’s most highly-anticipated residential addresses on the waterfront, Avora, is closing in on its Spring 2018 occupancy date, and there’s still time to stake your claim to one of its 183 remarkable homes. Between its unparalleled lifestyle amenities, stunning interior and exterior design, and remarkable location, it’s no wonder that the National Association of Home Builders named Avora the 2018 National Community of the Year.

Created by designer IBI Group and developer Landsea, the gorgeous 11-story Avora has become an instant landmark on the banks of the Hudson River at Port Imperial, but perhaps even more dramatic are the tax savings enjoyed by its homeowners. Weehawken slashed the tax rate by historic proportions, from 2.23% to 1.49%. That means tax relief of up to $96,190 over ten years (based on a listing price of $1.23 million).

Less stress over property taxes leaves you more bandwidth to devote to living your best life, a goal that’s achieved more easily in a community like this, equipped with over 30,000 sq. ft. of amenity space. Avora’s lobby will bid you a warm welcome home, with a concierge dedicated to your needs, even while you’re away. Watch your favorite films in style in a private screening theater and utilize the private dining room, bar, and catering kitchen for a social experience your friends and family won’t soon forget. The fitness center challenges residents with top-of-the-line strength and cardio equipment, while on-site pet grooming, secure garage parking, and bike storage round out the conveniences. There’s also the club room, with a cozy fireplace, televisions, and comfy lounge seating.

An outdoor plaza on the third floor takes full advantage of Avora’s sweeping Manhattan views, encouraging relaxation and recreation with a pool, BBQ grills, picnic areas, a fire pit, sun deck, and a viewing park from which to soak it all in.

The futuristic, imaginative exterior of Avora proves that sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. Inside, you’ll find sophisticated modern style, luxury finishes, and an eco-friendly ethos — manifested in the form of renewable energy technologies and sustainable practices that have earned Avora LEED certification.

Fortunately, a green mindset doesn’t preclude you from indulging yourself. Chef’s kitchens are nothing short of inspiring, with European Caesarstone counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances by KitchenAid, and dramatic wood finish cabinets, while the master suite is decked out in even more Caesarstone, with designer limestone spa baths that fill from the ceiling, in-mirror lighting, and under-cabinet lighting. Cabinets are by Robern, fixtures are by Kohler, and many residences even offer balconies or terraces.

Avora’s Port Imperial location means that your commute is an easy one, no matter where you’re going. Riverwalk Place, Hudson Yards, the light rail, and ferry are just steps from your front door; also within walking distance are parks like Old Glory, Donnelly Memorial, and Hamilton. The panoramic New York City views from the north, east, and south underscore just how close Avora is to it all.

You still have time to buy into the magnificent waterfront lifestyle Avora has to offer. Choose from one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes as well as penthouse duplexes, in a price range from the $800s to $4.4 million.
