One of the best-selling luxury condominium buildings in the region is now also the most acclaimed as Avora on the Weehawken, NJ waterfront was named “Community of the Year” at the 30th annual Sales and Marketing Awards (SAM).
The 11-story, amenity-rich building with unobstructed views of the midtown Manhattan skyline took home an impressive 10 awards in all, virtually sweeping the gala event which is sponsored annually by the New Jersey Builder’s Association to honor excellence in residential design, marketing and sales.
The awards banquet was held on April 6th in Atlantic City.
“We are honored to be recognized in so many categories by our industry peers,” said Gabe Pasquale, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Landsea, which is developing Avora. “To be singled out among such a competitive marketplace is a testament to the vision and execution of our talented team of architects, designers, marketing and sales professionals who are committed to delivering a residential building that will create a lasting footprint along the New Jersey Gold Coast.”
The award-winning night reflects the significant impact Avora has made since launching pre-construction sales late last year. Blending contemporary style and an incomparable waterfront setting with an unparalleled level of amenities, services and convenience, Avora has introduced a new level of sophistication to the area’s luxury condominium market. Discerning buyers from both sides of the Hudson River have responded, snapping up 95% of the residential collection’s first phase of homes and prompting the release of the second phase of residences.
Ideally located just steps from the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal providing an ultra-convenient 8-minute commute into Manhattan, Avora features 184 premium one-, two- and three-bedroom residences priced from the $800,000’s to more than $4 million. Initial occupancy is anticipated for first quarter, 2018.
Avora’s modern design was created by world-renowned architects IBI Group which conceived a multi-tiered, stepped-back design to maximize the building’s waterfront location and spectacular views of midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River.
Interiors feature thoughtful layouts and modern design throughout the public spaces and residences. A collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom homes – as well as a limited offering of duplex Penthouses – were designed with a contemporary aesthetic of sleek lines and modern style. Dramatic finishes and appointments include nine-foot ceiling heights, Chef’s kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and designer spa bathrooms with porcelain countertops, European-imported stone finishes and limestone baths. Many residences offer balconies and terraces with majestic, unimpeded New York City views.
Residents will have access to a full suite of lifestyle amenities at Avora, including a magnificent lobby with Concierge, private screening theater, business center, elegant boardroom, a grand salon lounge with a bar and catering kitchen, on-site pet grooming, and a state-of-the-art strength and cardio fitness center. A third-floor landscaped outdoor plaza features a pool, spacious sun deck, lounges, grilling areas and a fire pit – all set against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.
Avora will also feature a secure parking garage, bicycle storage, resident storage and 6,000 square feet of street-level retail space.
