Landsea announced recently that Avora has topped out at 11 stories, representing a significant construction milestone for the new luxury condominium building rising on the Weehawken, NJ waterfront with unobstructed views of midtown Manhattan.
A crowd of dignitaries led by Weehawken Mayor Richard Turner, fellow municipal officials, Landsea principals and more than 150 tradespeople gathered at the building adjacent to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal to celebrate the occasion. When completed, Avora will deliver 184 residences and 6,000 square feet of street-level retail space to Weehawken’s waterfront, with initial occupancy scheduled for first quarter of 2018.
“Today we recognize the collective efforts of our construction and design teams and skilled tradespeople who are playing a critical role in delivering a new residential destination that will have a lasting footprint on the New Jersey Gold Coast,” said John Ho, CEO of Landsea Holdings Corporation. “Thanks to their determination and commitment to excellence, we’re now one step closer to realizing our vision for this iconic development that combines vanguard design, outstanding amenities, an incomparable waterfront setting and progressive sustainable building practices.”
“It’s been a 35-year process to get to this building,” Mayor Turner remarked. “It’s hard to believe this waterfront was essentially vacant land, except for some industrial buildings. It has been a great partnership with developers to get to this point. Now we’ve had a ground breaking at Avora, a topping out, and we’ll all be back in 2018 for the grand opening.”
Recently named “Community of the Year” by the New Jersey Builder’s Association for its design, sales and marketing excellence, Avora is ideally located just steps from the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal providing an ultra-convenient 8-minute commute into Manhattan. Designed by world-renowned architects IBI Group, Avora takes full advantage of its waterfront location with a multi-tiered, stepped-back design that maximizes views of midtown Manhattan and the Hudson River.
