Factory plan working out

Leasing is about to get underway at Silk Lofts, a collection of 85 loft residences transforming the former Maidenform factory in the Hudson County, NJ, City of Bayonne.

A Priority List is currently forming for the initial phase of studio, one-, and two-bedroom homes which are expected be released to the public in early April, with initial occupancy scheduled for May, according to Silk Lofts, LLC.

The developer is transforming the century-old factory where the modern bra originated and where military parachutes and carrier pigeon vests were manufactured during WWII into a series of loft apartments.

The homes will offer modern living spaces and amenities while retaining dramatic original structural elements. Two model homes will be available for viewing in late March.

The collection of three interconnected, five-story buildings is located at the intersection of 18th Street and Avenue E — 800 ft. from the 22nd Street Light Rail station.

A fourth building overlooking an interior courtyard will feature a limited offering of Artist lofts.

Monthly rental rates will begin from $1,500.

“The Maidenform factory has been an iconic building in Bayonne for over 100 years, and we’ve taken great care to maintain the history and charm of the property,” said Doug Stern, President of Silk Lofts, LLC.

“Utilizing extensive research on its origins and a creative approach to development and historic preservation, we’ve created an urban residential living experience that rivals similarly-inspired residences in areas like Brooklyn at a price point that offers considerable consumer value.”

A suite of amenities has been designed for Silk Lofts includes a “pocket parkˮ with a herb garden, barbecue, fire pit and pizza oven. There will also be an on-site fitness center, secured parking and a lobby with historic photos of the original Maidenform factory.
