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 the National Association of Home Builders’ National Sales & Marketing Council named Avora the 2018 National Community of the Year.
Created by designer IBI Group and developer Landsea Homes, the striking 11-story Avora has become a standout 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 percent to 1.49 percent. 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 more than 30,000 square feet 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 favorite films in style in a private screening theater and entertain in 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. The kitchens are nothing short of inspiring, with Quartz counters and backsplash, stainless steel appliances by KitchenAid, and dramatic wood finish cabinets. Master suite spa baths are decked out with Caesarstone, baths that fill from the ceiling, in-mirror lighting, and under-cabinet lighting.
Cabinets are by Robern, fixtures are by Kohler, and many residences 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 Manhattan.
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 $800,000s to $4.4 million.
