Contrary to what some naysayers have predicted over the past year, New York will never be "over." However, in the wake of “the unprecedented global work-from-home experiment” (h/t Forbes), some may find themselves happy to trade a little distance from the city for extra space.

For some, that's where New Jersey's Gold Coast (Hoboken, Jersey City, and Weehawken) comes in. We take a look at some of the most attractive new condos on the market; however, given the sales numbers these buildings are reporting, these may not last long.

New York City is home to several residential conversions of historic industrial buildings, and a Hoboken development could give them a run for their money: Toll Brothers City Living converted the Maxwell House Coffee plant to luxury condos, and 1000 Maxwell Place represents the fourth and final phase of the conversion. The first residents are now taking occupancy, and 50% of the 58 units have been sold.

Remaining availabilities start at $699K for studios, $1,075,000 for two-bedrooms, and $1,380,000 for three-bedrooms. Compared to the Manhattan median price of $2,198,532 for two-beds and $4,438,333 for three-bedroom condos (per CityRealty listings), this is quite a bargain.

The well-appointed apartments at 1000 Maxwell Place feature high-end finishes, oversized windows, kitchens with Scavolini cabinetry and Thermador and Bosch appliances, and primary baths with glass-enclosed showers, double vanities, and Kohler fixtures. Residential amenities include an attended lobby, shuttle to the PATH station, lounge, fitness center, children’s playroom, sundeck with outdoor pool, and roof deck with grills and dining area.

This spring, sales are expected to launch at Wonder Lofts, the residential conversion of "the Wonder Bread building" where bread was made in the 1950s and '60s. The original factory dates back to 1909 and has been painstakingly renovated to preserve its brick facade, soaring ceilings, archways, large windows, smokestack, and water tower; the development comprises this building and a new five-story building across the street.

The 83 two- through five-bedroom units will combine original charm with contemporary finishes. Features will include smart home entry systems, large windows, well-appointed designer kitchens and baths, abundant storage, walk-in closets, and significant private outdoor space.

Wonder Lofts' 14,400 square feet of amenities will include a two-story attended lobby, concierge service, parking garage with electric vehicle charging stations, children's playroom, pet spa, gym and yoga/Pilates room, lounge/game room with landscaped patio, and rooftop lounge with infinity pool, circular outdoor bar, gas grills, fire pit, and 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline.

In Jersey City, a four-bedroom penthouse with a private terrace and infinity pool has set a new record as the most expensive ever to be listed at a price of $5.488 million. The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath home, The Villa at The Oakman Condominiums, measures 3,300 interior square feet and comes with 2,300 square feet of private outdoor space.

The unit is reached via private elevator entrance, and interiors feature high-end decor, gallery-style walls, custom European oak flooring, radiant heated floors, in-unit washer and dryer, and Crestron smart home automation system.

75-Park-Lane-South-01 All images of Park and Shore via Woods Bagot
At the end of last year, Jersey City's Park and Shore condominium announced completion. The 38-story 75 Park Lane was inspired by American modernism, while the eight-story Shore House harkens back to its neighborhood's industrial past. Nevertheless, the design by Woods Bagot unifies the buildings through common materials.

Remaining availabilities start at $600K for studios, $725K for one-beds, $1.095 million for two-beds, and $2.215 million for three-beds. The building is currently offering the first year of real estate taxes paid by sponsor for contracts signed before April 15, 2021.

Apartments boast natural finishes, wide-plank oak floors, oversized windows, generous storage space, open-plan kitchens, and sumptuous baths. Select units have private balconies, and residents of both buildings have access to amenities like a library and co-working space, an elevated putting green, a state-of-the-art fitness center with pool and spa, a wine-tasting room, a lounge with patio, a children's playroom, and a Sky Lounge with demonstration kitchen and outdoor roof terrace with bar areas and generous seating.

Many Jersey City buildings tout Manhattan skyline views in their marketing materials. However, at 889 feet and 79 stories high, 99 Hudson has transformed the local skyline. It is the tallest apartment tower outside of New York and Chicago, and its height allows residents to enjoy panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Verrazano Bridge, and, yes, the Manhattan skyline. Current availabilities start at $548K for studios, $825K for one-bedrooms, $1.118 million for two-bedrooms, and $4.098 million for three-bedrooms.

The first residents moved in last fall and enjoy such features at open-plan apartments, floor-to-ceiling windows, oak flooring, premium Bosch appliances, energy-efficient heating and air conditioning, stylish chef's kitchens, and sophisticated baths. Approximately 65,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities include a triple-height lobby, hotel-style concierge service, lounge, screening room, game room, children's playroom, golf simulator, fitness center, hot tub and spa area, outdoor dog run, outdoor pool with cabanas, and landscaped lawn.

Shortly before occupancy began at Weehawken’s Avora condominium in mid-2018, the LEED Silver-certified building was named National Community of the Year by the National Association of Homebuilders’ National Sales & Marketing Council. More recently, developer Landsea Homes Group (“Landsea”) reports another achievement: Nearly 90 percent of the 183 units have been sold. Remaining availabilities start at $825K.

Landsea cites Avora’s waterfront location and extensive amenities as key factors in this milestone. Indeed, 30,000 square feet of resort-caliber amenities include an attended lobby with concierge service and cold storage, screening room, lounge, business center and board room, fitness center with strength and cardio areas, golf simulator, game room, and outdoor plaza with pool and sun deck. Additionally, the building has been offering virtual classes and events during the lockdown.

Select units have private outdoor space, and all apartments feature spacious floor plans, 9’ ceilings, professional-grade kitchens, spa-like baths, and WiFi-programmable thermostats. Residents are close to a waterfront promenade, local shops and restaurants, and the NY Waterway ferry.
