A luxury homebuilder is approaching a milestone at its first New Jersey project, having sold nearly 90 percent of its new 183-unit condominium property in Weehawken.
The publicly traded developer, Landsea Homes Corp., touted the momentum at its Avora project after a recent flurry of activity. The company has signed more than 10 contracts in the past eight weeks, drawing buyers with the building’s waterfront location and a long list of amenities.
“After a year of adjustment, buyers are looking for an upgraded and more personalized at-home experience, and Avora uniquely checks every box on their list,” Jed Lowry, division vice president at Landsea Homes, said in a prepared statements. “With optimized layouts, customizable spaces and well-rounded amenities, Avora exceeds buyers’ expectations for post-pandemic living. We are very pleased with the sales velocity since the beginning of the year and expect it will remain strong throughout the spring.”
The complex, which welcomed its first buyers in spring 2018, has a mix of one- to three-bedroom homes with high ceilings, outdoor terraces and a host of upscale features. Amenities at the property include a lounge, a children’s playroom, a private screening room, a virtual golf and game room and a fitness center, among many others.
The Avora team also offers programming such as interactive virtual classes to residents and prospective buyers through partnerships with local businesses and well-known professionals in the community, according to a news release. Residents, meantime, are steps from parks and a waterfront promenade along the Hudson River, along with NY Waterway ferry service and a host of retail and dining options.
Pricing for the remaining homes at Avora begins at $825,000.
“There are only a few more opportunities to purchase one of our beautiful waterfront homes,” said Stephen Ferreira, Landsea Homes’ sales manager for Avora, who is working alongside Robyn Daly. “We are seeing serious sense of urgency with the rush of new inquiries, so we highly encourage buyers to act quickly and schedule an appointment to view our luxury Gold Coast lifestyle.”
