JERSEY CITY, N.J. – The fall selling season at Crystal Point, the 42-story upscale condominium building on Jersey City’s Hudson River waterfront, has shaped up to be one of the most notable recorded in recent years in the Hudson County real estate marketplace.
On the heels of an incredibly successful October which saw several sales, including seven exceeding an impressive $1 million each, the collection of 269 magnificent residences and resort-style amenities has added an additional 12 high-end sales in the month of November, according to Fisher Development Associates, which is developing the building on the final piece of developable land facing Manhattan in the City’s downtown waterfront district.
“Crystal Point emerged early on as one of the most successful selling condominium in the region, and we really haven’t looked back since,” says Fisher Development Associates President Brian Fisher, while noting that Crystal Point has passed the noteworthy marks of 70% sold and more than 60% closed.
“Our continued sales success is a strong testament to the wide-ranging appeal of this world-class residence which combines an exceptional waterfront location with dramatic living spaces, premier service, incomparable amenities and unmatched views that equate to the finest luxury lifestyle at Crystal Point.”
One-, two- and three-bedroom residences at Crystal Point are priced in the mid-$500,000s. Homes are made even more attractive thanks to a 30-year tax abatement that has been granted to the building.
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 range from 800 to 1,817 square-feet and offer an array of premium finishes. Residents also benefit from free on-site parking.
“Floor-to-ceiling windows drench the homes in natural light and many of the residences offer riverfront balconies,” notes Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the building’s marketing and exclusive sales agent.
“Kitchens boast 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. Each residence also has SMART home technology capabilities and a washer and dryer.”
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 features 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,” says Ms. Albert. “The building also offers a professional concierge, valet parking and soon a lobby level restaurant.”
The New Jersey District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI-NNJ) awarded Crystal Point its 2010 “Project of the Year” honor this month in recognition of the responsible development of the waterfront condominium building.
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.
