Foundations are poured and framing is underway on the new six-story building which is expected to be completed in August, 2010.
The new construction activity reflects the developers’ vast resources and commitment to staying the course which enable them to forge ahead while other sites lay quiet around the region. It also comes in response to an increase in demand at the community marked by a flurry of recent sales which signifies an apparent awakening of the dormant market.
“We’ve witnessed a noticeable uptick in sales activity recently and are delighted to come out of the ground with this new offering of homes,” notes Michael Skea, Director of Operations for Lennar Urban’s Northeast Division.
“We’ve had 54 closings to date which have translated to an active residential neighborhood fueled by social interaction and a strong sense of community. We also enjoy the distinct advantage of having the second largest homebuilder in the country at the helm. Lennar clearly believes in the community, is encouraged by the success to date, and has the strength and where-with-all to deliver on its promise of creating the area’s most exceptional residential address.”
Henley on Hudson features 164 homes in all including classic multi-level brownstones, expansive condominium residences and luxurious penthouses featuring from 1,716 to 3,744 square feet of living space at prices ranging from $1.35 million to $2.6 million.
The four-story Brownstones were designed to represent the traditional urban multi-level architecture commonly seen in upscale Manhattan streetscapes. Homes feature grand layouts with private entrances, two-car garages, private elevators and soaring living spaces. The multi-level design lives like an exceptionally appointed single-family estate residence, while waterfront terraces with views of Manhattan create an ambiance that is entirely urban-chic.
Single-level Penthouses are equally impressive, offering open floorplans and designer finishes and appointments to create dramatic living spaces that fully maximize their riverfront setting.
