I have exactly the same for the beta. Let me add that things do not look
right with ConTeXt from TeX Live either. Try this:

1) remove the cache from ~/Library/texlive/2015/texmf-var
2) luatools --generate
3) mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=avenirnextcondensed*
4) Typeset my test document using Avenir Next Condensed.
5) mtxrun --script fonts --reload
6) mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=avenirnextcondensed*
7) Typeset again.

My results:

3) I see all the entries, plus some spurious ones, which are probably
   synthesized by the script (e.g., avenirnextcondensedblack).
4) The PDF is an empty document (`unknown font` in the console).
6) I see only avenirnextcondensed and avenirnextcondensedbold: the rest
   is gone.
7) The document is typeset in boldface (at least the font is found).
