“It has taken Weehawken 35 years to await such buildings as AVORA.” Mr. Turner said, “In those years, beside the water edge was still a vacant lot apart from some scattered industrial buildings. Developers’ contributions cannot go unnoticed to what it becomes today. The ground-breaking ceremony of AVORA was held last year, and now it has been capped. We will come back again in 2018 when it is completed! ”
