Initial Occupancy Scheduled for Early 2022
HOBOKEN, N.J.– Wonder Lofts, the architecturally-significant condominium conversion of Hoboken’s historic Wonder Bread factory, circa 1909, is already 50% sold as buyers have responded to one of the most unique residential offerings to be introduced along New Jersey’s Hudson River Gold Coast just minutes from Manhattan.
Sales officially launched last month at the landmark property which features a collection of 83 loft-style residences and modern amenities blending restored historic charm with contemporary finishes and functionality. The expansive two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom floor plans offer 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 1,900 square feet. Many of the outdoor spaces feature views of the Manhattan skyline.
“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,” said Robert Fourniadis, Senior Vice President – Residential of Prism Capital Partners, which developed Wonder Lofts in partnership with Parkwood Development and Angelo Gordon. “This 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.”
Also contributing to Wonder Lofts’ spirited sales activity is the opening of the building’s on-site sales gallery and fully furnished models styled by Serena & Lily’s team of expert design advisors. The models allow buyers to experience the homes’ thoughtful blend of industrial-luxe design and 21st century style.
Steeped in Tradition, Curated for Modern Living
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, 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.
Dramatically reimagined for residential use, the homes at Wonder Lofts combine the past with the present to offer a unique living experience, 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 New York metropolitan area are the suburban-sized kitchens and living rooms, laundry rooms with high-end appliances, cabinetry, and utility sink; workspaces, and the private outdoor living areas found in the homes.
Magnificent Amenities for a Fully Realized Lifestyle
Living at Wonder Lofts includes 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 on the second floor features a large and elegant living room that opens to a lushly landscaped, outdoor terraced patio and garden with seating areas. A floor-to-ceiling brick, double-faced fireplace separates the living room from an open concept dining room and entertainment kitchen, and an adjacent billiards and game room.
Families will appreciate 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 and fun. A full gym equipped with the latest cardio and strength training equipment and a separate fully equipped yoga/flex studio will keep residents healthy in body and mind. There is also a screening room with couch seating and video gaming capability.
The building also boasts of a two-story lobby with an attended concierge, a large residents lounge with fireplace and co-working/study area, a secure onsite parking garage with electric car charging stations and pet grooming area that will provide a pleasant space for residents to pamper their furry family members.

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 now a reality.
