Keep reading to find out more about the Wonder Lofts community and its all-inclusive amenities.
A Historic Factory Reimagined Into Luxury Residences
Wonder Lofts, the architecturally-significant condominium conversion of Hoboken’s historic Wonder Bread factory, is one of the most unique residential offerings to be introduced along New Jersey’s Hudson River Gold Coast, just minutes from Manhattan. The landmark property, built circa 1909, features a collection of 83 loft-style residences and modern amenities blending restored historic charm with contemporary finishes and functionality.
Wonder Lofts is a one-of-a-kind property that has appealed to buyers from both sides of the Hudson River who recognize the rarity of having the living space of a brownstone, townhome or single-family home with the amenities of a modern condominium building, all in a fantastic, well-connected neighborhood.
The extraordinary design touches of the original Wonder Bread factory, which once churned out fresh bread from the 1910s to the 1960s, have been preserved in the contemporary redesign. The original brick detail, archways, high ceilings, large windows, a smokestack, and a water tower were all meticulously restored, while modern additions like the glass and aluminum façade complement the restored original structure. The community also includes a newly constructed five-story building located across the street, which is home to 15 of the residences, several of which include private yards.
Sales opened in summer of 2021 for Wonder Lofts and so far, over 70 percent of the residences have been sold.
“The rapid sales pace at Wonder Lofts reflects the design distinction of this boutique property, the homes’ uncommonly expansive living spaces, the robust offering of indoor and outdoor amenities, and our commitment to preserving and enhancing the fabric of the family-oriented Hoboken community,” Robert Fourniadis, Senior Vice President of Residential of Prism Capital Partners told Hoboken Girl. Wonder Lofts is being developed by Prism Capital Partners in partnership with Parkwood Development and Angelo Gordon.
Suburban Sized City Living at Wonder Lofts
Dramatically reimagined for residential use, the homes at Wonder Lofts combine the past with the present to offer a truly stand-out living experience, including large window façades for amazing natural light, smart home entry systems, designer kitchens and baths, abundant storage, and walk-in closets. Many homes also feature spacious multi-functional dens/home offices. Perhaps most unique for the New York metropolitan area are the suburban-sized kitchens and living rooms, laundry rooms with high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, and workspaces found in the homes, not to mention the amazing private outdoor space ranging up to 1,900 square feet.
Pricing for the new homes start at $1.84M for 3-bedroom residences and $2.15M for 4-bedroom homes which boast over 1,500 to 2,500 square feet of soaring living space.
Next-Level Amenities in the Heart of Hoboken

A floor-to-ceiling double-faced fireplace separates the living room from an open concept dining room and entertainment kitchen, and an adjacent billiards and game room.
Families can expand city living to the building’s children’s playroom, complete with padded floors, bean bag seating, toys, and books, as well as a fully equipped children’s art center ideal for fostering individual and group creativity.
