Ground broke yesterday at what will soon be Weehawken’s newest luxury residential project. Roseland Residential Trust, a subsidiary of Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, is behind this Gold Coast project called RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial. Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner was there for the ground breaking, as well as municipal and company officials.
“Since the late 1990’s we’ve had a partnership with Roseland and it’s been a great public, private partnership,” Turner said. “This area used to be all shipping and railroads and it paid a third of the taxes for the community. When it all died the community had to pick it up and it was an extreme hardship. Now you’ve seen over the last 25 or 30 years a complete revival of this area with connecting waterfront from West New York all the way down through Weehawken.”
The building, which is expected to open first quarter of 2018, will be a 10-story luxury community featuring 295 apartments from studios to three bedrooms. Finishes include vinyl wood plank floors, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Along with a myriad of resort-like amenities, RiverHouse 11 also boasts magnificent views of the NYC skyline.
RiverHouse 11 at Port Imperial is the latest addition to the $2 billion, 200-acre master-planned waterfront development that features upscale residences and retail, world-class views of the Manhattan skyline, and access to transportation options including ferry service to Manhattan and Light Rail service along the Gold Coast.
In total, Roseland has constructed 2,609 apartments at Port Imperial, with an additional 2,029 apartments planned.
