1000 Avenue at Port Imperial Rapidly Takes Shape on Hudson River Waterfront in Weehawken, NJ
WEEHAWKEN, NJ, March 18, 2014 – Rising on a spectacular waterfront site offering stunning Manhattan skyline views that stretch from the Freedom Tower to the George Washington Bridge, 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial is rapidly taking shape, giving buyers more tangible evidence of what may soon be the very pinnacle of modern, luxury living.
Lennar, one of the largest homebuilders in the country, has fully enclosed the sleek, all-glass building and is currently putting the final designer finishes and appointments into the new collection of condominium residences. With a strong preconstruction sales program underway, the developer expects initial closings to start in July and anticipates a full sell-out of the exclusive 74-home boutique building in Weehawken, NJ by the end of the year.
“This is one of the premier waterfront locations in the region, and its proximity to Manhattan and existing mass transportation options, including the adjacent Port Imperial Ferry Terminal, make it an appealing option for buyers on both sides of the river and beyond,” notes Craig Klingensmith, division president of Lennar Northeast. “We’ve taken full advantage of the location by creating an exceptional collection of residences and private amenities in an innovative, modern building that will set a new standard for luxury living along the Hudson River waterfront.”
Designed by renowned Manhattan-based architect, Handel Architects, LLP, 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial features a dramatic all-glass façade with distinctive metal panel accents.
