Something special is about to awaken Weehawken’s imagination. Rising above the Hudson River waterfront facing midtown Manhattan on the southern tip of Port Imperial, the dramatic 11-story, 184-residence Avora luxury condominium building is nearing completion and its spring 2018 occupancy.
Phase 1 of the project sold out quickly, appealing to Brooklyn, Manhattan and New Jersey Gold Coast buyers not only with the homes themselves but also the location. Avora is right on the waterfront, steps away from the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal. From this perch, residents can take advantage of a quick commute to downtown and midtown Manhattan. Its location also provides unobstructed views of the iconic Manhattan skyline.
Named “Community of the Year” by the New Jersey Builders Association, the LEED-certified Avora offers other benefits as well. The Weehawken lifestyle promises more open space and less density compared to neighboring cities like Jersey City or Hoboken, without sacrificing convenience. It’s also got an impressive pedigree, with a design by renowned architects IBI Group.
The full suite of indoor and outdoor amenities at Avora has been selected to give homeowners the sensation of waking up at a luxury resort each and every day. The 30,000 square feet of amenities begin on the lobby level, where a concierge is there to assist, and where packages await their owners in cold storage.
A business center and boardroom are spaces designed for peak productivity, while the private screening theater and grand salon lounge — complete with catering kitchen and bar — are invigorating social spaces. An onsite pet grooming facility and secure garage parking sweeten the deal as well. And for a great workout, hit the fitness center, outfitted with state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment.
On the third story rooftop is located the signature amenity of Avora: a landscaped outdoor plaza with copious features that maximize enjoyment of the river and city views. Here, residents can swim a few laps in the pool, catch some rays on the sun deck and sear some steaks at the grilling station. When the weather gets cold, they can relax alongside a fire pit.
One exceptional perk offered to homeowners at Avora is its “While You’re Away” service, wherein the staff attends to mail, packages, and any other needs that may come up when residents are away from home.
As for its homes, they are one-, two-, and three-bedroom condominiums and penthouses that offer finishes that rival the best in Manhattan. Kitchens are outfitted in Italian cabinetry, with European granite countertops and stainless steel KitchenAid appliances suitable for professional use.
Kohler fixtures, limestone baths, porcelain spa baths, and Robern cabinets add good looks to the dramatic bathrooms, while many of the residences boast terraces or balconies with private slices of skyline view.
Avora is located at 800 Avenue at Port Imperial, adjacent to its light rail station as well as the ferry terminal. Its remaining residences are priced from the $800,000s to $4.4 million.
