Wonder Lofts reimagines a historic site with an aesthetic borrowed from a dream. A thoughtful blend of industrial-luxe design and 21st century style transport you from 1865 to 2021 – and serve as the foundation for an icon of residential living.

From the visionary minds of MVMK Architects, Wonder Lofts ushers in new life to the heart of downtown Hoboken and this landmark historic site. Home to the John Schmalz's Model Bakery for decades before transitioning to the Wonder Bread Building in 1921, Wonder Lofts continues on with a tradition of bringing iconic innovation to the city of Hoboken.
The red, U-shaped building at 720 Clinton Street, commonly referred to as "The Wonder Bread Building" by locals, was first home to John Schmalz & Sons Model Bakery. Established in 1865 by German immigrants, they became locally famous for their Jersey Cream Malt Bread which was delivered by horse and buggy.
