Nestled on the north side of Hoboken near the Weehawken boarder is a section of Hoboken called Hoboken Cove. In this area, the Hudson River extends west forming a cove. It is believed that Henry Hudson anchored his ship there in 1609 when he sailed down the River which was later named after him.
The Hudson Tea Building in Hoboken
Formally the Lipton Tea Factory, the structure was renovated into luxury rental apartments in the late 1990’s and named the Hudson Tea Building. In about 2004, Toll Brothers purchased the Hudson Tea Building & surrounding land and converted the rental building into condominiums. Features of the Hudson Tea Building Include:
- Residences include studio, 1, 2, & 3 bedroom luxury loft style condominiums
- 24 hour concierge
- Resident’s shuttle to & from the Hoboken PATH Station
- Large fitness center
- Resident’s Lounge
- Spectacular New York City & Hudson River views
Harborside Lofts in Hoboken
For many years, a vacant concrete building sat next to the Hudson Tea Building. This structure was part of the Lipton Tea Factory, however remained an eyesore for many years in the Hoboken Cove area. After Toll Brothers began converting the Hudson Tea Building into condos, they started renovating this vacant structure into what would become the Harborside Lofts. With only about 100 loft residences in the development, the Harborside Lofts feature:
- Studio, 1, 1 + den, 2, 2+ den, & 3 bedroom loft condos
- 24 hour concierge
- On-site resident’s fitness center
- Shuttle to & from the Hoboken PATH Station
- Common roof deck with BBQ area, as well as private roof decks for resident’s who purchased them
- Amazing New York City & Hudson River views
Future Hoboken Cove Development
Two more condominium buildings are planned near the Hudson Tea Building & Harborside Lofts on the vacant parking lots just south of the buildings. Toll Brothers hasn’t announced a date or project details as of yet, however you can see that they have tested the soil with iron pilings & construction trailers are present.
Currently the Applied Companies are building The Berkshire, a residential building just south east of the Hudson Tea Building. This property will be part of the Shipyard Complex & is rumored to be rental apartments.
The current site of the “Park on Park” parking garage on 15th St. & Park Avenue is scheduled to be developed eventually. I park my car there and I received a notice several years ago from the management saying the building will be torn down eventually to make room for condominiums as well as a charter school. I haven’t heard anything recently about development at this site, however when I do I’ll be sure to let you know.
As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I’ll be happy to assist.
