Brisk sales and closings underway at 103-Unit Boutique Condominium that is the latest addition to Lennar’s “The Avenue Collection”
Weehawken, NJ Mayor Richard F. Turner joined fellow officials from the Township of Weehawken and Lennar, one of the nation’s largest home builders, on Tuesday, June 14, to cut a ceremonial ribbon on 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial, the latest collection of luxury condominiums Lennar has delivered to Weehawken’s Port Imperial waterfront.
The ceremony marked the completion of the boutique residential building’s 103 upscale residences and exceptional indoor and outdoor lifestyle amenities. The development milestone followed a successful launch of the building in which nearly all of the first 40 residences released for sale have been sold.
Mayor Turner said the success of 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial is part of a larger success story of the Weehawken waterfront, which has been one of the hottest residential real estate markets on the New Jersey Gold Coast in recent years.
“When we started this process, this was totally vacant land,” Mayor Turner said. “We had some piers and some old rusting buildings left. Over the years, a lot of people spent a lot of time to bring us to where we are today. And what you see is a total transformation of the waterfront.”
Located on the banks of the Hudson River facing midtown Manhattan, 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial is the second building to open within Lennar’s Avenue Collection, a series of modern, amenity-rich residential properties that deliver a new generation of chic condominium living to the New Jersey Gold Coast. The initial offering, the 74-unit 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial, sold out last year.
“We’re delighted to stand here today and officially unveil 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial,” said Craig Klingensmith, division president of Lennar Northeast. “The completed property ushers in a new era of modern architectural design, superior amenities and services and stylish living spaces that is fulfilling our vision of transforming one of the most scenic stretches of waterfront property into a boutique, waterfront lifestyle experience unlike any other in the marketplace.”
Designed by renowned Manhattan-based architect Handel Architects, LLP, 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial features an intimate seven-story design with a sleek glass exterior with brick and metal panel accents, large windows and private balconies/terraces in most homes to maximize views of The Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.
A comprehensive offering of hotel-inspired amenities includes a grand salon lobby, library lounge, media screening room, children’s playroom, and state-of-the-art fitness center with men’s and women’s locker rooms with sauna and steam showers. On the 7th floor, the Skyline Social Room features a lounge space, catering kitchen, bar, multiple gathering areas with fireplaces, sound system and televisions; an internet lounge and more — all set against the stunning backdrop of the New York City skyline.
Outside, a dramatic third-floor landscaped plaza offers an expansive open-air amenity space that includes a sun shelf swimming pool, a catering bar, garden spaces with multiple seating areas and a fire pit with motorized shade trellis.
“The private amenities serve as an extension to each home,” said Mr. Klingensmith. “Whether moving up to more living space or scaling down from no-longer-needed single-family homes, residents have the luxury of entertaining in a multitude of indoor and outdoor spaces that enhance their lifestyle experience.”
One-to-three-bedroom residences with 887 to 3,139 square feet of living space are available at prices starting from $759,000. Most residences feature private outdoor space ranging as much as 1,036 square feet.
