WEEHAWKEN, NJ – The wait is over as The Residences at Henley on Hudson debuts this weekend (September 25 & 26th) along the Weehawken waterfront facing midtown Manhattan. Prospective buyers are invited to the Grand Opening celebration which will take place from noon to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday and include tours of four spectacular model homes, as well as the availability of exceptional below-market rate financing.
The Residences at Henley on Hudson features an impressive collection of brand new floorplans including the community’s first one-bedroom design at prices ranging from $469,000 to $2.5 million. The majority of the 27 residences located in a distinctive six-story building offer expansive outdoor living spaces overlooking the Manhattan skyline and picturesque English Gardens.
Initial occupancy is scheduled for October, 2010.
The new phase of homes follows the successful sell-out of the community’s four-story Brownstones.
“This is a brand new offering of floorplans that were designed in response to what we were hearing from the marketplace,” says Michael Skea, Director of Operations for Lennar Urban’s Northeast Division, which is developing Henley on Hudson in a joint venture with Roseland Property Company.
“While people liked our duplex condominiums and multi-level Brownstones, the majority of prospective buyers preferred single-level plans. So we challenged our skilled architects to create new designs that feature practical living spaces that are ideal for entertaining. We’re delighted that we’re now able to showcase these designs in dramatic fashion by taking prospective buyers into four furnished model homes which represent four distinctive floorplans.”
The development team looked to capitalize on the community’s incomparable riverfront setting and the unique lifestyle it affords with open floorplans that overlook the dazzling Hudson River and Manhattan skyline from the upper floors and the quaint English Garden Courtyard from below. Intent on appealing to a wider range of buyers, they provided opportunities starting at just $469,000 — a compelling price point further enhanced through the developer’s offering of below-market rate financing.
“We’re one of the very few communities in the region where new construction activity is taking place,” Mr. Skea points out. “It demonstrates the developers’ commitment to capitalizing on the community’s success to this point as well as their financial capacity to build at a time when others are very skeptical to do so. It’s a scenario that has helped build confidence in our buyers to move forward with a new home purchase.”
The Residences at Henley on Hudson offers a limited number of one-, two- and three-bedroom residences ranging in size from 881 to 3,312 square feet of living space. The homes feature a wide range of upscale finishes and appointments, including open gourmet kitchens and solid hardwood floors. Homebuyers may choose from a variety of designer selected custom finish palettes. Residents will also enjoy all that Henley on Hudson has to offer, including an all-encompassing amenity package and convenient public transportation.
The Club at Henley is a private 6,000 square-foot clubhouse featuring a club room, theater room, billiards and gaming lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center, Yoga/Pilates room and a Children’s Play Studio. An outdoor, resort-style infinity pool surrounded by tasteful landscaping opened this summer. The elegantly-designed, multi-level clubhouse is complemented by comprehensive Concierge services to create an at-home resort-like living experience.
“An abundance of open space has also been carefully incorporated within Henley on Hudson and throughout Port Imperial for active and passive recreation, including tree-lined walking and jogging paths and English Gardens,” notes Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the community’s marketing and exclusive sales agent.
“Residents also enjoy Port Imperial’s vibrant retail offering which features boutique shops, restaurants, a gourmet supermarket and services, while the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal provides direct service to Manhattan and the Light-Rail station offers access to the PATH station and towns throughout the ‘Gold Coast.’ The result is a private, picturesque neighborhood ambiance comprising a thoughtfully-balanced offering of distinctive residential options, desirable open space, exciting shopping, dining and retail conveniences; and convenient mass transportation all hugging the Hudson Riverfront.”
