The high sales volume during the summer months has been quickly equaled by a flurry of activity in early fall with nineteen condominium homes sold at Crystal Point within the last two weeks alone, according to Fisher Development Associates, which is developing the building a mere 25 feet from the banks of the Hudson River.
Much of the success is being directly attributed to the debut of the professionally-decorated model residences and continued construction progress at the magnificent building which enable visitors to get a true sense of the high quality, upscale interior designs and unrivaled waterfront location with majestic views of the riverscape and New York City skyline. Also contributing are limited-time summer Grand Opening prices starting from the low-$500,000s which provide tremendous value and have created an unsurpassed buying opportunity.
“We typically see a slow down in sales activity during the summer months as prospects spend more time with family and friends, vacationing and enjoying the warm weather outside,” says Brian Fisher, a principal of Fisher Development Associates. “That hasn’t been the case here where we’ve experienced a significant uptick in buyer interest since May.
“Our sales numbers have seen a dramatic rise as buyers have been allowed to tour our models, experience the building as it nears completion and see for themselves exactly what the buzz surrounding Crystal Point is all about. Of course, the opportunity to purchase at grand opening prices before it’s too late is also spurring buyers to act now.”
Created by the renowned New York City architectural firm Gruzen Samton LLP, the distinctive design of the landmark Crystal Point building maximizes its unrivaled waterfront location and creates homes with modern, open and furnishable living areas.
“Unlike many high-rise developments which often seem cavernous with long hallways, we split the Crystal Point plan in half with elevators positioned in the middle of the residential floors to create short corridors and provide the building a very intimate feel,” says Jordan Gruzen (FAIA) of Gruzen Samton. “We utilized multiple façade planes to break the building‘s mass up and ensure that every home had magnificent views. Each condominium was designed so from the moment the front door of each home is opened one is aware of the views and the light emanating from the water.
“The layouts of the homes themselves often create large square rooms and sprawling living spaces that are open, airy and extremely functional.”
Crystal Point features a crystalline-style glass exterior and has been designed to maximize the building’s waterfront setting and views of the ever changing Manhattan skyline. Inside, one-, two-and three bedroom homes will range from 800 to 1,817 square-feet and offer an array of premium finishes. Residents will also benefit from free on-site parking.
“Features will include kitchens with Italian Pedini wood and glass cabinetry, sparkling quartzite counters, under-cabinet task lighting, full height pantries, islands with breakfast bars and a full Jenn-Air appliance suite,” points out Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors, Inc., Crystal Point’s marketing and exclusive sales agent.
“Floor-to-ceiling windows will drench the homes in natural light and many of the residences will offer river front balconies. Each residence will also have SMART home technology capabilities and a washer and dryer.”
Homes at Crystal Point are made even more attractive thanks to a 30-year tax abatement that has been granted to the building.
Crystal Point’s superb amenities include the Crystal Spa with a thermal bath, sauna, steam and treatment rooms. Residents will also enjoy a yoga/aerobics room, state-of-the-art fitness center, lounge with flat screen televisions, game room with billiard and poker tables, children’s play room and a screening room within the Crystal Club.
“An outdoor deck overlooking the Hudson River will feature a lap pool, hot tub, private cabanas and lounge chair seating, as well as a BBQ and dining area, fire pits and a children’s play area,” Ms. Albert says. “The building will also offer a professional concierge, valet parking and lobby level restaurant.”
Crystal Point is conveniently located between the Paulus Hook and Newport sections of Jersey City and steps from PATH trains at both Exchange Place and Newport with direct access into New York City and a Light Rail station.
