From the press release:
“Later this morning design team members from Perkins Eastman will join Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop, representatives of the Jersey City Council and Planning Board, developer China Overseas America, Inc., Plaza Construction, and a host of other dignitaries for the groundbreaking of 99 Hudson St. (aka 99 Hudson). At 79 stories tall and measuring 900 feet from sea level, 99 Hudson will be the tallest building in the state of New Jersey, surpassing the 781-foot tall Goldman Sachs building at 30 Hudson. The new tower will comprise nearly 800 condominiums and will further enhance the city’s ongoing campaign to “dramatically remake the Jersey City skyline,” according to Mayor Fulop.”
99 Hudson Update (1/12/16)
New renderings have been released showing the slightly smaller design for 99 Hudson Street that we previously reported. The current design calls for a 76 story tower containing 743 condo units.
New York YIMBY also uncovered a document from the FAA indicating approval for the towers height. The document states the new tower “would not be a hazard to air navigation.” This is another step forward in the quest towards building NJ’s tallest tower.
The attorney representing the developer has hinted at plans to begin construction as soon as next month (February 2016).
Previous 99 Hudson Coverage
The competition for the New Jersey’s tallest buildings continue. In September, the first tower of URL Harborside topped out at 69 stories and became the tallest residential building in New Jersey. However, they won’t hold that record for long. China Overseas America, the developer, has plans for a 900 foot, 76 story tower at 99 Hudson.
The massive tower, designed by Perkins Eastman, will contain 743 condo units, making it the largest condominium project ever in New Jersey. It will also contain 19,591 square feet of retail space and 734 parking spaces.
Construction has yet to begin on the project.
