Port Imperial might not be a city per se, but it encompasses everything a city is and strives to be: a great place to visit and a great place to live. A community composed of three Gold Coast towns, Weehawken, West New York, and Guttenberg, Port Imperial is positioned along the Hudson River waterfront as the premier hub for living your best life.
A storied past has given way to a modern reimagining and what was once envisioned as “Venice on the Hudson” is now Port Imperial. Stretching for two miles along New Jersey’s Gold Coast, it is keeping pace with Manhattan on every front and exceeds even the highest expectations from Port Imperial’s vantage point right on the river. The New York City skyline is postcard perfect from 33rd to 85th.
Luxury awaits either the visitor or the full-time resident. Opening soon, high-end accommodations will be available for visitors at the Residence Inn and EnVue Hotel both located at 500 Ave at Port Imperial. For the full-time resident, the market is a truly innovative portfolio with something for everyone and amenities to match.
Rentals and condominiums are available as well as some of the most expensive real estate in New Jersey. Every residential property is carefully considered, resulting in a unique aesthetic and architectural significance. Service, finishes, and amenities are of the utmost importance and luxury across all is paramount. Each building serves as an all-inclusive community with impressive collections of amenities, often including large indoor or outdoor swimming pools.
One of the newest additions to the Port Imperial neighborhood is part of Roseland’s $2-billion, 200-acre master-planned waterfront development – RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial. The 10-story residential community is located at the edge of the Hudson River and features 295 apartments ranging from studio to three-bedroom residences. The building’s innovative design was inspired by a blend of modern style and eclectic industrial elements that show off the unrivaled views of the Manhattan skyline.
Homes at RiverHouse 11 feature luxury finishes including wood-style plank floors, gourmet kitchens with quartz countertops, and there are private terraces and balconies in select homes. The community’s myriad of resort-style amenities includes a sky terrace with stadium seating to show off the sweeping views, outdoor lounges with fire pit and fireplaces, barbecue grilling stations, and a bocce court. The pool and sundeck are a main attraction during the summer, and a seriously tricked out fitness center features a yoga and spin studio, rock-climbing wall, along with other state-of-the-art equipment. The business center, conference rooms, and Wi-Fi café with computer stations are perfect for residents who work from home, and the theater room, game room, music room, and golf simulator lounge mean the adults will always stay entertained. As if that weren’t enough, the kids are taken care of in the Crayon Corner, and a community garden adds lush greenery to the grounds.
Throughout the Port Imperial community, there’s a wonderful balance on-site with as many amenities inside and out: lounges for socializing and working, catering kitchens for entertaining, state-of-the-art fitness centers with yoga and Pilates studios, children’s playrooms, dog runs, and landscaped roof decks complete with grills and fire pits. Space is also not the premium it is in Manhattan, so residences are generously-sized.
Beyond the beautiful buildings, Port Imperial offers a lively restaurant scene, enviable retail, and plenty of recreation. Every cuisine from Cuban and Thai to Mexican and Chinese is around, and for a classic waterfront dining experience, head to Molos for seafood plus the breathtaking view. Riverwalk Place continues to expand as a shopping destination and the essentials — ACME grocery and pharmacy, Giannone Wine & Spirits, Starbucks, Ben & Jerry’s, Lusso, Son Cubano, Riverwalk Cleaner, Floris Day Spa — are all nearby.
The proximity of New York City is experienced as easily as it is seen and felt with fast NY Waterway ferry service from the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal and easy access to NJ Transit, the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, and both the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels.
And visiting or living at Port Imperial demands time spent along the water. The Promenade runs the entire length of Port Imperial and ends at Weehawken Waterfront Park which is full of activities and even undergoing an expansion that will include more public pools and a multi-purpose pavilion. It is here, along the Hudson River waterfront, where the Port Imperial community transitions from a destination to a way of life.
