In the heart of Port Imperial, a two-mile stretch of Hudson River waterfront featuring shops, restaurants, parks and a riverfront promenade, lies The Avenue Collection, a new generation of chic condominium living that blends a modern, urban lifestyle with hotel-inspired amenities.
With its sleek and contemporary design, The Avenue Collection delivers a decidedly more modern sensibility to the area. Five ultra-luxury condominium buildings comprising 669 total units will eventually be located on the prime waterfront site in Weehawken, NJ facing midtown Manhattan, where residents enjoy stunning skyline views stretching from The Freedom Tower to the George Washington Bridge. Launched to the public in August, 2013, the first building, the seven-story, 74-unit boutique 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial, is already more than 75 percent sold. Designed by Handel Architects, LLP of Manhattan, the building is distinguished by its all-glass facade with metal panel accents.
Five new model residences designed by renowned Connecticut interior design firm Linda Ruderman Interiors and Manhattan-and-Miami-based Tui Pranich of Tui Lifestyle were unveiled recently, showcasing the building’s upscale living spaces. Units offer a variety of floor plans, including a three-bedroom, three-bath residence with a spacious out-door balcony and sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline, to two-bedroom homes offering northwest vistas, and a unique one-bedroom duplex with a den and private street entrance.
Designer finishes and appointments throughout the residences include Brazilian Chestnut hardwood floors in main living areas, and gourmet kitchens with a GE Monogram Appliance Suite including Pro Style Range, Avantium oven with SpeedCook Technology, direct vented Avantium hood to outside air exhaust, and an Energy Star®-rated refrigerator and dishwasher. Kitchens also feature under-counter wine coolers in select residences, Spazzi European cabinetry in a raked wood finish with integral handles, DalTile marble kitchen floors and marble backsplash, and granite counter tops.
Remaining residences at 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial include one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,472 to 2,188 square-feet: priced from $900,000. Large windows, private balconies/terraces and a dramatic third-floor outdoor plaza provide residents with desirable open-air space while maximizing the property’s spectacular sweeping views.
Lennar fashioned a private suite of amenities to foster an upscale, hotel-like lifestyle within the intimate setting. A two-story lobby lounge with reception and 24-hour Concierge welcomes residents and guests, while a social room looking out onto New York City, a state-of-the-art fitness center with sauna and steam showers, and a third-floor outdoor plaza featuring a convenience kitchen, open lawn, seating areas, fire pit, sundeck and cooling sprays enhance the overall lifestyle. Fully-furnished guest suites are available for visiting friends and family.
The development is particularly attractive to commuters or those seeking proximity to Manhattan’s renowned shopping and entertainment. Just steps away is the Port Imperial Ferry terminal — with service to midtown and downtown Manhattan. The Lincoln Tunnel, Holland Tunnel, and George Washington Bridge are just minutes away. The New Jersey Turnpike and Route 3 are easily accessible, as is New Jersey Transit bus service, the Hudson Bergen Light Rail, and Newark International and Teterboro Airports.
