Crystal Point

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – The naming of a new full-service concierge company at Crystal Point leads the way for a number of notable announcements at the 42-story upscale condominium building on Jersey City’s Hudson River waterfront.

Chapman Concierge has been retained to oversee and perform lifestyle services such as transportation arrangements, package delivery, reservations, guest relations and much more at the collection of 269 homes and resort-style amenities and services, announced Brian Fisher, a principal of Fisher Development Associates, Crystal Point’s developer.

“We’re pleased to welcome Chapman Concierge to the team at Crystal Point,” Mr. Fisher says.  “We realize many of our residents live busy and hectic lifestyles and our goal is to ease their burden and eliminate worry through a maintenance-free environment and convenient services.  The presence of a professional on-site concierge with the sterling reputation of Chapman Concierge to assist with daily tasks will go a long way towards accomplishing that goal.”

Fisher Development Associates has also announced the completion of the portion of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway which stretches along the river banks in front of the Crystal Point building, allow Jersey City residents additional access to the public amenity and ensuring continuity of the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway project.

Situated on the final piece of developable land directly on the Hudson River, Crystal Point has celebrated a number of sales and development milestones this summer.  Most notably, the building has reached the 60% sold mark and 50% of its total homes have been closed, a significant achievement which defies the odds in today’s housing market

The iconic Crystal Point building takes upscale riverfront living on the Hudson River to the next level by providing forever New York City views and a myriad of five-star recreational and social amenities to create a hotel-inspired living environment. Prices for the one, two and three-bedroom residences range start in the mid-$500,000s.

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 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,” says Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the building’s marketing and exclusive sales agent.

“Floor-to-ceiling windows will drench the homes in natural light and many of the residences offer river front balconies.  Each residence also has 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 sparkling pool, giant hot tub, private cabanas and lounge chair seating, as well as two BBQs and dining area, fire pits and a children’s play area,” Ms. Albert points out.  “The building will also offer a professional concierge, valet parking and lobby level restaurant.”

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.”

Earlier this year, Crystal Point received the prestigious Gold Award for “Community of the Year” during the 2010 National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) annual International Builders’ Show. Given by the National Sales and Marketing Council (NSMC), the celebrated achievement distinguishes the building as the best new attached home community in North America.

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.
