Woodmont Properties has opened the doors to its newest luxury residential community, a mix of more than 120 townhomes and apartments near the South Amboy train station and waterfront.
The firm said the project, known as Woodmont Cove, includes 106 two-story townhomes with garage parking and 20 luxury flats located in an elevator-served building. Located off South Broadway, the complex drew local officials last week for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Woodmont Properties promised and delivered an incredible project,” South Amboy Mayor Fred Henry said in a prepared statement. “We now have a beautiful new living area that benefits Woodmont, its residents, and — of course — the people of the City of South Amboy.”
Woodmont Cove is adjacent to a YMCA and recreation center that features a 6,000-square-foot health and wellness center, full-sized basketball court, swimming pool and aerobics/strength training area, according to a news release. Each home features high-end finishes and appliances, with many townhomes offering private patios and balconies.
The developer also touted the community’s easy access to parks, recreation, shopping and the Jersey Shore via nearby highways, along with its proximity to the city’s NJ Transit station and the Raritan Bay Waterfront Park. The property is within minutes of the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Interstate 287 and routes 35, 1 and 9.
“We’re very excited to officially open this sensational community, which offers the perfect blend of luxury living and convenience,” said Lewis Zlotnick, president of Woodmont Properties. “Residents will be able to enhance their living experience by utilizing the YMCA and Raritan Bay Waterfront Park, which offers breathtaking views of the New York City skyline, and is home to a variety of festivals, free concerts and public gatherings throughout the year.”
As part of the ceremony, city officials and Woodmont Properties also dedicated four streets within Woodmont Cove. Three were dedicated to families of World War II veterans — the Nebus, Casey and Littell families from South Amboy — while the fourth, Celecki Drive, is in memory of fallen firefighter Gerald Celecki, who served as a firefighter for almost 50 years.
The ceremony drew other Woodmont executives including CEO Eric Witmondt, Executive Vice President and General Counsel Stephen Santola, Chief Investment Officer David Trager, Senior Vice President Steven Varneckas, Chief Financial Officer Daniel Miller and Senior Vice President of Construction Howard Irwin.
