This article is sponsored by Avora, a luxury waterfront condominium community in Port Imperial, Weehawken.
Every once in a while, a building comes along that challenges expectations. For Port Imperial in Weehawken, that building is Avora, an ultra-luxury 184-unit resort-style condominium community. Located at 800 Avenue at Port Imperial, the project is led by Landsea, the first new developer to enter the Port Imperial market since 2008.
Avora stands in stark contrast to its neighboring properties. Sheathed almost entirely in glass, with striking lines, and dramatic angles, the building and its dramatic lobby and outdoor recreation areas give off a modern resort-style vibe. Avora is designed by renowned architects IBI Group, which conceived a multi-tiered, stepped-back design to maximize the building’s waterfront location and spectacular views of midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River.
The focal point of the property is its third-floor outdoor plaza, boasting an outdoor pool, lounging areas, grills and a fire pit, all centered around unencumbered views of Midtown Manhattan. There’s an elevated amphitheater where residents and guests can sit and admire one of the most iconic skylines in the world.
But what’s a premier building without an exceptional amenity package? In addition to the outdoor space, the property offers 30,000 square feet of indoor amenity space with a 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 strength and cardio fitness center.
On the ground floor, the 24-hour concierge attended lobby offers another area for mingling with guests and residents. Cold package storage allows residents to have groceries delivered when they’re away. Knowing a good share of future residents will travel frequently for work or play, Avora offers a “While You’re Away” service. The staff takes care of packages, mail and any other needs residents may require while out of town.
As for residences, Avora offers one-, two- and three-bedroom homes — as well as a limited offering of duplex penthouses with Manhattan-quality finishes rarely found on this side of the river. Since the property is in pre-construction, purchasers have the option to pick one of three design schemes.
Chef kitchens come with Italian cabinetry, professional grade KitchenAid appliances, and marble countertops. Bathrooms have porcelain tile, Robern cabinetry, Kohler fixtures, and limestone baths. Many residences offer balconies and terraces affording private unimpeded New York City views.
Avora also claims one of the best locations in Port Imperial. It’s the closest residential building to both the New York Waterway Ferry Terminal and Light Rail. No shuttle buses are needed as they’re both so close.
For commuters, the ferry terminal offers a direct eight-minute ride to Midtown Manhattan as well as routes to Pier 11 at Wall Street and World Financial Center. For those working on the New Jersey side, the Light Rail provides quick service to Hoboken and Jersey City.
Avora sits in the heart of the $2 billion master-planned Port Imperial community that stretches two miles of Hudson River waterfront across three municipalities. The community offers a riverfront promenade with multiple parks and play areas. For dining, shopping and entertainment, the Shops at Riverwalk are nearby.
Residences range in price from about $800,000 to more than $4 million. The building is expected to be ready for initial occupancy in first quarter 2018.
Gabe Pasquale, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Landsea, told Jersey Digs that Weehawken has emerged as the location of choice for luxury condominium living along the Gold Coast due to its waterfront setting, commuter convenience and urban/suburban qualities. He said many of Avora’s buyers have come from Hoboken, Jersey City and Manhattan who prefer Weehawken’s quiet nature and open space to the urban-centric characteristics and density of those cities.
