The Modern Baking Company building stands at the corner of North 4th and Brunswick Streets in the heart of Wilmington’s rapidly redeveloping Brooklyn neighborhood, or NOFO as it has also come to be known. The building was completed in 2007 and added a strikingly modern tone to the more traditional red brick facades along the street. What facades remain as decades of decline have left half of the nearby properties vacant lots in the once bustling neighborhood. But NOFO id being reborn and The Modern Baking Company was one of the earlier expressions of that movement.

There are four floors of condominiums and a basement level for parking and additional storage units. There was only room for 13 parking spaces and there are 24 dwelling units in the building. If you are purchasing a Modern Baking condo do not assume you will get a parking space automatically. The spaces are deeded separately and can be sold individually. If the seller owns a parking space they might include it in the purchase price, but they could also sell the space to another owner within the building or ask for an additional sum from the buyer. So if you are purchasing be aware. The same goes with additional storage units in the basement. There are 14 of those and they are also separately deeded.

There’s a basic pattern of 6 units per floor with 5 repeating floor plans, However the stairwell on the bottom floor dictated some modification to one unit resulting in another unique floor plan bringing the total to six floor plans. The plans are named A thru F with the C plan occurs twice in each floor. So there are 4 As, 4 Bs, 8 Cs, 4 Ds, 1 E the unique plan on the second floor, and 3 Fs, for a total of 24. Below you’ll find the layout for each floor.

The building has a coded entry gate for pedestrians from North 4th Street and a coded entry for automobiles from Brunswick Street into the secure parking area beneath the building. There is an elevator which services all 5 floors in addition to comfortably wide stairways at each end of the building. And there is a backup generator which will keep common area services requiring power operational in the event of a power outage.

At the time of this writing association fees run between $200 and $250 per month depending on the size of the unit.
