1200 Avenue at Port Imperial

Handel Architects as Architects

1200 Avenue is visually defined by a playful rhythm of balconies that offer Manhattan skyline views.

 

The Avenue Collection is a series of buildings located at the base of the Palisades, directly across the Hudson River from Midtown Manhattan. The neighborhood, called Port Imperial, is comprised of approximately 2.5 miles of waterfront residential and commercial development on the Hudson River, spanning the townships of Weehawken and West New York. The master plan consists of 2.8 million gross square feet of development and includes over 1,500 residential condominium units, 45,000 square feet of ground level retail and 1,600 parking spaces. Each self-contained building has individual amenity programs, a pool with landscape roof deck, outdoor lounge, gym and business center. The larger development sites will have special amenities program of spa, yoga studios, media center and kid's rooms.

 

Handel Architects' second building, 1200 Avenue, is defined by a rhythm of balconies that are connected in a shifting progression of right angles set against floor-to-ceiling glass. This abstract pattern creates double height spaces in the balconies, and gives the feeling of unobstructed openness to the sky and river, while also allowing natural light to penetrate deeper into the interior of the units. The horizontal emphasis and shifting progression of these elements along the façade draws the eye out toward the Hudson River while the unobstructed glass wall takes advantage of the river and city views. 1200 Avenue has 103 condo units.
