Two Weehawken condo buildings nearing sell out
Two iconic waterfront condominium communities that have helped make Weehawken one of the hottest residential real estate markets in the state are nearing a close-out, the developer, Lennar, announced.
At Henley on Hudson, a collection of 201 luxury residences on the Hudson River waterfront, construction of the final building on the property is now complete. Immediate occupancy is available for the last remaining condominium homes.
Just a half mile up the riverfront at Lennar’s 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial, the model homes that inspired so many buyers to choose the 103-home luxury waterfront community are now being sold themselves. Two furnished model homes recently sold and closed, leaving one three-bedroom furnished model and two staged homes available for tours. The popularity of the furnished models mirrors the overall popularity of the community, where a limited number of luxury residences remain available for sale.
Henley on Hudson and 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial both benefit from Weehawken’s location opposite midtown Manhattan, its proximity to several forms of mass-transit, and its low-density approach to development which incorporates significant amounts of open space. The waterfront provides a quieter, more suburban residential setting than its urban counterparts in Hoboken and Jersey City, but also offers conveniences such as walkable shops, restaurants and recreation.
The communities also benefit from Weehawken Township’s recent property tax reduction from 2.23 percent to 1.49 percent, giving the Township one of the lowest property tax rates in Hudson County.
At Henley on Hudson, the remaining residences are priced between $875,000 and $2.5 million and feature one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans ranging in size from 1,165 to 1,964 square feet of living space. The homes are single-level designs and many offer balconies or terraces to maximize the community’s dramatic views. All homes include numerous upscale features and appointments, as well as a home automation system that allows residents to control and automate lighting, temperature, entertainment and more.

Tribeca condo buildings unveils latest renderings
15 Jay Street, a loft condominium conversion on a cobblestone street in the Tribeca West Historic District, recently released new interior renderings.

This classic downtown conversion is comprised of five gracefully appointed lofts. An intimate and ambitious project, the design blends quintessential loft details with refined finishes to create elegant homes.
Each of the building’s three distinct layouts have been designed to accommodate a contemporary lifestyle while simultaneously recalling Tribeca’s industrial past, featuring expansive rooms, high ceilings, enormous windows, exposed brick and wooden beams, and wide plank wood floors – more on each of the apartment types below my signature.
Amenities for the building include an elegant lobby, a private keyed elevator, virtual doorman, a package delivery room, private storage, bicycle storage, and a video intercom system. MNS is serving as the exclusive sales team, with Michael Brooks as the lead on the project. The launch is anticipated for fall 2018 and pricing for the homes range from approximately $4M – $8M.
