A symbol of Hoboken, NJ’s storied industrial past will soon redefine its residential future as sales will launch in late spring at Wonder Lofts, a new collection of sophisticated loft-style residences and modern amenities born out of the former Wonder Bread factory, circa 1909.
Affectionally known in Hoboken as “The Wonder Bread Building” as the iconic American classic Wonder Bread was made there during the 1950’s and 1960’s, the building has been painstakingly renovated to preserve and restore its original brick detail, archways, high ceilings, large window openings, smokestack and water tower.
Dramatically reimagined for residential use, the conversion also showcases such modern additions as a façade of glass and light grey aluminum that add to and accentuate the restored original structure. The community also includes a newly constructed five-story building located across the street which is home to fifteen of the residences.
Steeped in Tradition, Curated for Modern Living
Wonder Lofts was conceived as the civic successor to one of Hoboken’s most recognizable and historically significant sites. With pitch-perfect restoration and a design focused on style, comfort and room for growth, Wonder Lofts will continue its Clinton Street location’s legacy as a focal point of city life while ushering in a new generation of living in Hoboken.
The boutique offering of just 83 residences will feature expansive two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom floor plans, many with dens, with an impressive 1,200 to 2,700 square feet of soaring living space. A meticulous attention to detail ensures that the homes will blend preserved original architectural features and charm with contemporary finishes and functionality, including large window façades that bathe the homes in natural light, smart home entry systems, well-appointed designer kitchens and baths, abundant storage, and walk-in closets. Uniquely, every home includes significant private outdoor space ranging up to 1900 square feet.
Magnificent Amenities for a Fully Realized Lifestyle
Living at Wonder Lofts will include enjoying 14,400 square feet of shared indoor and outdoor amenities for an elevated lifestyle. The highest rooftop, with its stunning 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline, all of Hoboken and beyond, is a beautifully landscaped patio lounge featuring an infinity-edge swimming pool with lounge chairs, a circular outdoor bar underneath the restored water tower, gas barbeque grills, and abundant dining and lounge seating areas with a fire pit.
An indoor residents’ lounge that opens to a lushly landscaped, outdoor terraced patio and garden features seating areas, a floor-to-ceiling brick, double-faced fireplace, an open concept dining room and entertainment kitchen, and an adjacent billiards room.
Families will appreciate the building’s children’s art center, complete with padded floors, bean bag seating, toys, and a children’s library, while a full gym and fully equipped yoga/Pilates studio will keep residents healthy in body and mind. The building also boasts of a two-story lobby with attended concierge, a pet grooming area that will provide a pleasant space for residents to pamper their furry family members, and a secure onsite parking garage with electric car charging stations.
Located at 720 Clinton Street, Wonder Lofts places residents in the heart of Hoboken, bringing within easy reach all that the dynamic hamlet on the Hudson River is known for. With its tree-lined streets dotted with historic brownstones, an eclectic offering of neighborhood shops, restaurants and nighttime haunts, numerous parks, heavily landscaped waterfront featuring majestic Manhattan skyline views, and proximity to Manhattan enhanced by PATH and Ferry service, the pedestrian-friendly town has matured from a convenient commuter starting point for singles and couples to a nesting ground for growing families.
Wonder Lofts owes its breathtaking blend of industrial history and modern elegance to a team of professionals including two award-winning and renown design firms, Hoboken-based MVMK Architecture + Design who served as the project architect, and Manhattan-based Workshop/APD who served as the interior designer. These firms collaborated with an ownership team consisting of Prism Capital Partners, Angelo Gordon, and Parkwood Development and its exclusive sales and marketing agent CORE in creating the vision of a wonderful community that is soon to be a reality.
