Wonder Lofts: Expansive Condos Born Out of Historic Hoboken Building

Written by:

Hoboken is well-known for its charming, small-town vibe thanks to historic buildings, beautiful brownstones, and tree-lined streets. Washington Street is dotted with boutique shops and eateries, and people come from far and wide to enjoy Hoboken’s picturesque waterfront and vibrant nightlife. As the community moves on from its industrial history, older buildings are often converted into new, modern residences. Wonder Lofts, the new upscale condominium conversion in Hoboken’s historic “Wonder Bread Building,” has delivered one of the most unique and luxurious housing experiences to New Jersey’s Gold Coast. Keep reading to find out more about the building and its world-class amenities.

Wonder Lofts Combines Historic Charm + Contemporary Finishes

The historic design touches of the original Wonder Bread factory, which once churned out countless loaves of 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, and such modern additions as a façade of glass and light grey aluminum 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, several of which include private yards.

Wonder Lofts was envisioned as the residential 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, this boutique offering features a sophisticated collection of 83 expansive two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom floor plans with an impressive 1,200 to 2,700 square feet of soaring living space.

Uniquely, every home includes a parking space in the secured onsite garage and significant private outdoor space ranging up to 1900 square feet, while many of the homes feature views of the Manhattan skyline.  

Dramatically reimagined for residential use, the homes blend the 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.

Many homes also feature spacious multi-functional dens/home offices. Perhaps most unique for the Hudson Gold Coast are the suburban-sized kitchens and living rooms, laundry rooms with high-end appliances, cabinetry and utility sink; workspaces, and outdoor living areas found in the homes at Wonder Lofts.

The models accurately display how Wonder Lofts separates itself in the Hudson County market by blending large spaces with interior styling more commonly equated with townhome living and the many advantages of a modern condominium building featuring world-class amenities and hotel-inspired services.
