A penthouse at the Hudson Tea Building at 1500 Hudson Street has set a new record for Hoboken, New Jersey condo sales. The three-bedroom, three-bath home just sold for $4.2 million, the city’s priciest condo sale ever. The newly-renovated loft–a two-unit combo–spans 2,820 square feet with direct New York City skyline views in three directions. A previous Hoboken record was held by Eli Manning‘s 2018 sale in the same building. The Giants quarterback sold his three-bedroom pad in the waterfront loft building for $3.55 million.

This corner loft sits atop the Hudson Tea Building, built in 1913 as the home of the Lipton Tea company. overlooking the river after which it was named. The waterfront location means unobstructed panoramic river and New York City views from almost every room.

In true loft fashion, the 2,820-square-foot apartment boasts 14-foot ceilings and 10-foot-high windows. A thorough renovation by the previous homeowner resulted in an open, sun-filled living and dining area anchored by a dramatic Nero Marquina marble slab and walnut panel feature wall. A bespoke bookcase helps frame this unique entertaining space. Custom lighting can be found throughout.

In the kitchen, SieMatic contemporary design includes smoked oak and polished nickel kitchen cabinetry, Miele and Bosch appliances and a wine beverage refrigerator. A massive Caesarstone waterfall island and Carrara marble countertops provide prep and dining space.

A luxurious master bedroom suite designed by Scalamandre features Philip Jeffries wallpaper. The en-suite master bath offers a frameless steam shower. A capacious walk-in closet has been outfitted by California closets. The condo’s remaining two bedrooms also feature ensuite baths.

Two separate entrances to the loft mean there’s room for a mudroom with custom storage and a large LG washer and dryer. The thoroughly modern home features an Elan smart home system and zoned integrated speakers. Former Tea Building residents have included ex-Giants star Jeremy Shockey, boxer Arturo Gatti, and ex-NJ governor and ex-senator Jon Corzine. The unit previously changed hands for $3.895 million.

Located directly on the Hudson River waterfront just steps from the NY Waterway Ferry, the building offers residents a full menu of amenities. Residential perks include a 24-hour concierge, a 2,700 square foot fitness center with Peloton bikes, free daily classes and locker rooms, a children’s playroom, a resident’s lounge, a free shuttle to Hoboken Terminal, an on-site dry cleaner, a bakery and a coffee shop.
