SilkLofts, which offers a big dose of Brooklyn style on the New Jersey Gold Coast, is presenting a unique new lifestyle option in Jersey City’s neighboring City of Bayonne. The rental conversion boasts 85 loft-style residences located in the former Maidenform Factory which was the birthplace of the modern bra. During World War II, the factory also manufactured military parachutes as well as carrier pigeon vests.
Reborn as a modern, urban living experience, the converted five-story brick building is located at the intersection of 18th Street and Avenue E – just 800 feet from the 22nd Street Light Rail station and minutes from Jersey City, Hoboken and Manhattan. A separate building overlooks a landscaped interior courtyard and features a limited offering of Artist Lofts.
A variety of floor plans are offered, ranging from 568 to more than 1,400 square feet of soaring living space at monthly rental rates ranging from $1,500 to $3,400 – a far cry from Brooklyn rents. Masterfully designed to reflect the property’s historic roots, homes combine 19th-century restored elements that represent the building’s past – such as exposed heavy timber columns and brick – with modern finishes and appointments that innovatively meld it into the 21st century.
A mix of old and new is found throughout the loft residences, including soaring 12-to-20-foot ceiling heights, mahogany front doors, exposed brick and wood beams, bamboo and oak gunstock wood floors, gourmet kitchens with Quartz countertops and Chef Islands, and washer and dryers. Bathed in natural light through newly-installed, oversized energy efficient argon filled factory windows, the residences offer a variety of views, including the New York City skyline and Bayonne Bridge.
Wanting residents to “love where they live,” the developer has fashioned a creative suite of amenities for SilkLofts to foster a close-knit atmosphere. An outdoor, landscaped pocket park features an herb garden, barbeque, fire pit and a fully-operational pizza oven that’s ventilated through an old smokestack. There’s also an on-site fitness center, secured on-site parking and a welcoming lobby with historic photos of the original Maidenform factory.
