JERSEY CITY, N.J. – November 1, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — A spectacular two-bedroom Penthouse home with unrivaled views of the Hudson River and Jersey City will highlight the debut of two new professionally-decorated models at Crystal Point, the upscale collection of 269 condominiums rising directly on Jersey City’s Hudson River waterfront.
The residences, which also include a one-bedroom model home, will be officially unveiled to real estate brokers from throughout the region on Wednesday, November 16th during a special preview party to be held in the Penthouse residence from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Attendees will delight on sumptuous hors devoirs and refreshments while basking in the glittering views of the New York City as the sun sets over the Hudson River. Amex gift cards will also be raffled off.
Situated on the top floor of the 42-story building, the 1,526 square-foot Penthouse has been designed to maximize Crystal Point’s incredible, unobstructed views of the New York City skyline stretching from downtown Manhattan to the George Washington Bridge with floor-to-ceiling windows, living room with dramatic panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscape, magnificent dining area and open kitchen.
“When visitors first step into our Penthouse residences, they’re immediately taken aback by the awe-inspiring Manhattan views they provide,” notes Brian Fisher, a principal of Fisher Development Associates, developer of Crystal Point. “What better way to get a true sense of how these luxuriously appointed homes accentuate these views than with a new decorated model residence that brokers and purchasers alike can tour. They’ll also receive a firsthand look at the new one-bedroom home and our existing models to see how Crystal Point offers floorplans to fit a variety of differing lifestyle.”
The finest selection of homes is now available at Crystal Point. Many condominiums in the current inventory offer all the attributes that have led Crystal Point to the most successful sales program in Hudson County in recent memory – value-packed pricing from the upper-$500,000s, unobstructed views of the ever changing Manhattan skyline and Hudson River, easy access to a host of world-class on-site amenities and a key location in close proximity to major public transportation,.
The lifestyle that separates Crystal Point is on full display during summer when residents are delighting in the building’s Manhattan-style outdoor amenities. Situated on an expansive outdoor deck of over ten thousand square feet overlooking the Hudson River on the building’s sixth-floor, the outdoor social and recreational amenities are highlighted by a sparkling pool, giant hot tub, private cabanas and lounge chair seating, as well as two BBQs and dining area, fire pit and a children’s play area.
While the outdoor amenities are certainly a hit during summer, residents looking to escape the heat can always head indoors and enjoy five-star amenities including the Crystal Spa with a thermal bath, sauna, steam and treatment rooms, a yoga/aerobics room, state-of-the-art fitness center, lounge with flat screen televisions, game room with billiard and poker tables, children’s play room and a screening room within the Crystal Club. There’s also a professional concierge on site and valet parking.
Homes at Crystal Point range from 800 to 1,586 square-feet and offer an array of premium finishes. Residents also benefit from free on-site parking. Homes are made even more attractive thanks to a 30-year tax abatement that has been granted to the building.
“Floor-to-ceiling windows drench the homes in natural light and many of the residences offer riverfront balconies,” notes Adrienne Albert, CEO of The Marketing Directors, Inc., the building’s marketing and exclusive sales agent.
“Kitchens boast Italian Pedini wood and glass cabinetry, sparkling quartzite counters, under-cabinet task lighting, full height pantries, islands with breakfast bars and a full Jenn-Air appliance suite. Each residence also has SMART home technology capabilities and a full-sized washer and dryer.”
Created by the renowned New York City architectural firm Gruzen Samton LLP, the distinctive design of the landmark Crystal Point building maximizes its unrivaled waterfront location and creates homes with modern, open and furnishable living areas.
“Unlike many high-rise developments which often seem cavernous with long hallways, we split the Crystal Point plan in half with elevators positioned in the middle of the residential floors to create short corridors and provide the building a very intimate feel,” says Jordan Gruzen (FAIA) of Gruzen Samton. “We utilized multiple façade planes to break the building‘s mass up and ensure that every home had magnificent views. Each condominium was designed so from the moment the front door of each home is opened one is aware of the views and the light emanating from the water.
“The layouts of the homes themselves often create large square rooms and sprawling living spaces that are open, airy and extremely functional.”
The award-winning Crystal Point building has been recognized as the ULI-NNJ’s 2010 “Project of the Year” and last year received the Gold Award for “Community of the Year” from the National Association of Home Builders.
Crystal Point is conveniently located between the Paulus Hook and Newport sections of Jersey City and steps from PATH trains at both Exchange Place and Newport with direct access into New York City and a Light Rail station.
