Wonder bringing its unique restaurant concept to Hoboken at Waterfront Corporate Center

Created by Mark Lore, restaurant features items off menus of famous chefs and notable restaurants

SJP Properties is bringing more than just another fast-dining concept to Waterfront Corporate Center III in Hoboken.

It’s bringing Wonder, a restaurant featuring some of the most notable chefs in the country.

Wonder, the company founded by former Jet.com CEO Mark Lore, which is aiming to redefine the food industry through vertically integrated, next-generation restaurants, by bringing chefs on food trucks to neighborhoods around North Jersey – is opening brick-and-mortar locations, too.

The 3,700-square-foot location, scheduled to open later this year, will offer a collection of exclusive menus from chefs such as Bobby Flay, Marc Murphy, Jose Andres, Marcus Samuelsson and more – along with award-winning restaurants from across the country, including Tejas Barbeque, Di Fara Pizza, Barrio Cafe and others.

Wonder aims to become a spot where customers can enjoy world-class cuisine via delivery, pickup and dine-in options right in their communities.

Andrew Gasper, chief governance officer at Wonder, said the company is eager to open.

“Hoboken is such a lively, dynamic and diverse city, and we’re excited to be a part of the community,” he said. “As Wonder continues to expand and open new locations across New Jersey and New York, Hoboken was a natural next step for us. With such close proximity to the river walkway, we expect to see a significant amount of walk-in customers.”

Wonder currently has brick-and-mortar locations in Westfield and on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Alexander Erdos, SVP of Leasing & Marketing at SJP Properties, said the firm is happy to have them at Waterfront Corporate Center III, the three-building, 1.5 million square foot office and retail complex that was completed in 2014.

“Nearly every company we work with is focused on providing new, high-end and diverse dining options for their people,” he said. “Wonder is growing in key markets, and we believe their arrival in Hoboken at Waterfront Corporate Center will be a wonderful amenity, further enhancing the tenant experience and the surrounding community.”

The complex is currently home to big corporations such as EY, DraftKings, Newell Brands, Walmart, RMS, and Pearson, and houses an on-site, state-of-the-art fitness center, Crunch

Fitness; as well as Del Frisco’s Grille; Wicked Wolf restaurant; The Lola; FedEx; Chase Bank; Cresthill Academy; and Gregory’s Coffee.

Waterfront Corporate Center also benefits from its proximity to downtown Hoboken’s amenities, as well as immediate access to two piers that have been converted into beautiful, water-surrounded recreational parks and a tree-lined boulevard, all of which contribute to Hoboken’s 24/7 lifestyle.

JP Pirraglia of Ripco Real Estate facilitated the lease transaction on behalf of Wonder, while Marta Villa of CBRE represented SJP Properties.
