A century ago, the wedge of Hoboken waterfront where Weehawken Cove and the Hudson River merge became the epicenter of an industrial revolution. When Sir Thomas Lipton selected the spot for the American headquarters of his Lipton Tea company, the neighborhood was transformed into an international hub. Ships from all over the world docked there from 1919 until 1963, delivering tea and establishing the basis of an upwardly mobile, middle-class existence.
A lot has changed in Northern Hoboken since those days, but that sense of history is still palpable at 1425 Hudson Street at Hudson Tea, a new waterfront condominium developed by Toll Brothers City Living. With 99 spacious condominiums on 12 floors, the building is modernizing the look and feel of living in Hoboken. The design of the building was envisioned by the award-winning architecture firm Marchetto Higgins Stevie.
But that family-oriented, American-dream lifestyle? That’s still here. And it’s one of many reasons to consider moving to the dynamic Hudson Tea community.
Steeped in the rich history of the Hudson Tea community
1425 Hudson marks the realization of the master-planned community envisioned by the urban arm of Toll Brothers. The neighborhood has been revitalized over the last decade-plus, starting with the conversion of a former warehouse into rental units at 1500 Hudson, and subsequently condominiums. Toll Brothers has continued developing the area since, creating a mixed-use community that sits at the intersection of accessibility, excitement, and peacefulness.
Hoboken has long been home to a young, exciting crowd seeking cheaper prices, more space, and easy access to New York City. Over time, that has only diversified. Ambitious young professionals met in the neighborhood or at the office; they married, had children, grew wealthier, and moved to even bigger residences in northern Hoboken. Meeting them were the empty nesters from deeper in the suburbs, seeking a move closer to grandchildren.
The area grew alongside these converging populations, becoming the exciting residential hub it is today. The community now hosts myriad restaurants, cafes, boutiques, farmers’ markets, and grocers (including a Trader Joe’s) for its residents to explore. The waterfront parks, playgrounds, and the Hudson River esplanade provide a peaceful oasis. New Jersey has designed its waterfront to be more human, accessible, and approachable, with an emphasis on being bike- and pedestrian-friendly. You don’t have traffic issues here.
And commuting couldn’t be simpler: One block over is the ferry to Midtown and World Trade Center, while a shuttle bus provides easy access to the Hoboken transit hub, home of the PATH train, NJ Transit, and multiple bus routes.
Living in the fullest expression of progress
The latest edition to this vibrant urban neighborhood is 1425 Hudson, and it fits the bill as the lodestar of the Hudson Tea community. Its spacious interiors are larger than what you typically find in Hoboken condominiums, with four-bedroom homes available for purchase for the first time.
The interiors, designed by INC Architecture & Design, set a new standard for the community. All homes at 1425 Hudson feature oversized windows, hardwood floors, a washer/dryer, and large closets, and some have private balconies or terraces that act as extensions of the interiors, with disappearing glass doors. Kitchens come with cabinets of oak and blackened metal, Quartz countertops, and Thermador appliances, while the bathrooms are equipped with double vanities, Quartz countertops, Kohler fixtures and honed limestone floors.
But with only 99 residences, make no mistake about it: 1425 Hudson is a boutique condominium. Residents get to know the people who live and work in the building, which helps create a neighborly vibe at the heart of this dynamic neighborhood.
1425 Hudson Street is now selling, and going fast. For more information, go to 1425Hudson.com, visit the sales gallery at 1450 Washington Street, or call 201-795-1960.
